Tignes Le Lac

Tignes Le Lac (2100m) is the original main village in Tignes and is a hive of activity in winter and summer.

Situated by the lake, it provides easy access to the whole Espace Killy ski area, with the seasonnaire favourite Palafour Chairlift up the Tignes side of the mountain and the main lift to Val d'Isere - the Toviere Gondola, located opposite the Maison de Tignes.

The huge wooden tourist office also acts as the centrepiece for the resort, where numerous events are held throughout the year - including the fabulous fireworks on New Years Eve.

Most of the Ski Schools tend to meet by the Maison de Tignes / Toviere Gondola and it is surrounded by many restaurants, cafes, fast food joints, creperies, bars, supermarkets and shops - as well as Tignes only post office!

Our personal favourites are the Loop Bar and Tignes Cuisine located at the end of Rue du Rosset - perfect to stop off for lunch or for an Apres session after skiing and L'Embuscade at the top of the Rue de la Poste - a great little hidden gem for some relaxed drinks.

Take time to have a look at the nightlife sections for our guide to all the best bars and restaurants throughout Tignes.

There are also a number of underground car parks situated near the bus station which makes staying in Le Lac very easy for those who choose to drive to the resort.

We have a number of chalets and apartments throughout Le Lac that will suit every budget.
