Residence Altaviva is ideally located in Tignes 1800, right on a blue slope and just a few minutes walk from the resort centre. The residence is ski in, ski out with access to the Tignes - Val d'Isère area which extends over 300km and offers 156 ski runs. There's nowhere quite like it!

Unforgettable scenery

Protected by the woodland and rocks, the L'Altaviva Residence offers a landscape you won't want to miss. These tastefully decorated apartments and the large south-facing terrace - used by the restaurant and swimming pool - all have views overlooking the ski slopes and we're sure you'll fall in love with the panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

Family favourite  

The residence is perfect if you're all looking to spend quality time together in the comfort of your own space. Alternatively, there are many opportunities for you and the family to socialise and make friends - make the most of the children's clubs and communal areas like the lounge or swimming pool. Tignes 1800 attracts families back time and time again to the resort offering varied slopes and all the facilities you could wish for.

Soothing spa and relaxation facilities 

Escape from the slopes and enjoy a moment of relaxation in the attractive spa area. The Ô Pure Spa is very spacious with an aqua relaxation area featuring a pool, whirlpool, hammam and sauna - there is an entrance fee, however it is well worth it for a moment of peace and quite. There are also treatment rooms and massages available at an extra cost if you feel like really treating yourself.

Tignes is famous for it's record amounts of snowfall, making it the best place for skiers and snowboarders to carve up the slopes. The area has three main villages: Val Claret, Le Lac and Le Lavachet, which are linked together by a 24 hour free bus service. Val Claret is 2,100 metres high and has a superb position right at the foot of the Grande Motte funicular. Le Lac and Le Lavachet have a more cosy village feel to them and also offer easy access to the slopes and over to Val d’Isère. The villages have a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants and have a lively, friendly, buzz about them. We also have accommodation in Tignes 1850 and Tignes Les Brevieres, which are quieter villages with easy access to the slopes.

Skiing and snowboarding in Tignes

There's a great mix of slopes in Tignes, making it a great place for families and groups of different levels. There's plenty of wide and long runs, through trees and on glaciers. One of the best runs has to be from the top of Grand Motte glacier and down the red into Tignes Val Claret village. 

Where to stay in Tignes

We offer accommodation in all of the main villages in Tignes, with Le Lac and Val Claret being the most popular. From the majority of the hotels and apartments you can reach the slopes within a few minutes, making it extremely easy to get onto this world-renowned ski area. 

Bars and restaurants in Tignes

Tignes is a lively area with plenty of restaurant and après options, from live bands and happy hours in 'Loop Bar' to delicious local Savoyade fondues in 'Coeur des Neiges'. Tignes Val Claret has the famous 'Cocorico' apres bar and pizzeria, then 'La Folie Douce' is up in the mountains. There's alot of restaurants dotted around the ski area for that well deserved mid-morning hot chocolate and then a lunch break.

Travel By Air

Flights to Chambery or Geneva from 13 UK airports.

Transfer Times

  • Chambery airport: approx. 2 hours 30 mins by coach
  • Geneva airport: approx. 4 hours by coach 

There is a traffic light system for the Tarentaise Valley. This system controls and slows down the traffic, stopping traffic sitting in dangerous places, like tunnels, where rocks can fall and to make snow clearing easier when it is snowing. This can impact your transfer time, meaning you may arrive into resort later and be leaving for the airport earlier. 

Transfers may be longer during bad weather conditions or French school holidays. French school holidays span 21 Dec 24 - 06 Jan 25, 08 Feb - 10 Mar 25 and 05 Apr - 05 May 25.

The transfer in Tignes will stop as chose as possible to your chosen accommodation. In some cases there may be a 5 minutes' walk due to the location of the property not being accessible by coach, this includes the Apart-Hotel Le Chalet Alpina.
