No other ski resort compares to Tignes and its companion resort Val d'Isère. Thanks to the famous Grande Motte Glacier reaching to a height of 3656 metres, Tignes can offer skiing all year round and this has always been a great asset for French property private sales in the area.  A constantly moving field of ice ensures a permanent layer of snow so that skiing is possible even at the height of summer when some 22 ski lifts are still in operation. No other resort around the world offers great skiing like this, 365 days a year, without recourse to helicopters.  Even when snow falls are poor and nearby resorts have none, Tignes has snow in all seasons; undoubtedly this has boosted French ski property for sale in the whole Tarentaise region.

Tignes-Le-Lac is the main village at the heart of the five villages known collectively as Tignes. This modern resort makes no pretence at being the most picturesque village in the Alps. Situated within a circle of mountains which give access to some of the highest slopes in Europe, often blanketed with fresh snow, its reputation is not for architectural beauty, but for the endless skiing possibilities which can take you on some 500 kilometre journeys without ever retracing your steps. 

With no other transport but skis and mountain lifts, you can reach any of the three valleys, headed by Courchevel, Meribel and Val Thoreins, or fork west towards La Plagne, Les Arcs and Bourg Saint Maurice, and discover the beautiful national park of La Tarentaise. You can also reach Cervinia and Zermatt and ski on the slopes of the Matterhorn, via La Rosière and the Petit St Bernard pass. 

Naturally Tignes has all the usual amenities you would expect to find in such an international ski resort where the most arduous runs were used as training grounds by the greatest gold medallist skiers during the last winter Olympics held at Albertville.

There is the usual array of bars, pubs and cafes for early and late excursions. Some have live music on certain nights or a disco-type night on others. There is always somewhere to quench your thirst and be entertained.  A sports hall located in the central complex houses 2 tennis courts, a gym and a sauna, while a less energetic nights entertainment can be found at the 10 pin bowling alley where you can pit your skills against the local teams.

A holiday in Tignes is an unforgettable experience.
