Situated on the Col de L´Iseran route with easy access to Tignes and Val D´Isere the chalet welcomes mountain bikers, walkers, motorcyclists, road cyclists, alpine adventure seekers, families and anyone searching for a budget chalet to explore the French Alps and Tignes this summer.

The resort of Tignes has become world famous during the winter months and is seeking to become just as well known in the summer. Since 2010 the resort has offered free lift passes to mountain bikers and has invested heavily in over 100km of new trails and an excellent and well-maintained bike park.

For 2017 this is continued with FREE lift passes not only for mountain bikers but also for walkers who wish to use the lifts to access the higher mountain walks. In addition there are over 20 FREE activities across the resort including;

  • Lift Passes for Mountain Biking & Hiking
  • The Lagon Swimming Pool, with jacuzzi's and water slides
  • Watersports Centre; canoe, catermaran, kayak, pedal boating & paddle-boarding
  • Acroland; blob jump, hot-jumping, water-jump, and the crazy airbag
  • Archery, Air Rifle Shooting, Tennis, Squash, Football, Beach Soccer, Beach Volleyball, Petanque, Trampolines, Mini Golf and more...
Tignes is also famous for summer skiing and the glacier is open from 27th June through to 9th August 2017. You do have to pay for a lift pass to go skiing but the prices are reasonable.

Access to Tignes Le Lac

From Tignes Les Brevieres you will need to get into Tignes Le Lac for access to the chair lifts for mountain biking & hiking, and all the free sports around the lake. This can be done by one of the following three ways;
+ Take a Vehicular Up-Lift Service provided essentially for MTBikers and Hikers approximately every 30 minutes (maximum of 8 seats & 8 bikes),
+ If you have brought your own vehicle you can take a short 10 minute drive to Tignes Le Lac and park for free all day!

For an action packed holiday it would be hard to beat the Tignes Resort for value for money with everything free once you are here.
