Tignes is a ski resort in the Savoie department, and is part of the Espace Killy ski region.
The resort comprises several villages - all are new except for Les Brevieres which was a traditional Savoyard village before skiing arrived. Tignes itself was also a village here but it was submerged in the early 1950Άs when the barrage was constructed.
The resort was developed in an attractive location in the mountains above Les Brevieres and around the lake after the dam was finished.
The main villages are called Val Claret, Le Lavachet, Le Lac, Les Boisses and Les Brevieres, the first three of these being at the higher altitude and the last two a little down the mountain. Le Lac is both the highest village of the group and the best placed for access to the ski slopes.
As you would expect, Tignes also offers a very wide selection of shops, bars and restaurants and nightlife for the times when you arenΆt out on the slopes. Because of the late season skiing available, and the popularity of the resort as a summer base for hiking and outdoor activities, the town is busy for much of the year, except autumn when the summer crowds have left and the first winter sport enthusiasts not yet arrived.
