Peace and quiet in a natural setting
Les Brévières is THE nature resort in Tignes. An alpine village that has preserved its pretty stone and wood chalets, nestled in a vast wooded park. This is where the resort’s tree run is located (connoisseurs take note), and Nordic skiing is popular here, among the larches and firs. In summer, you can enjoy walks in the shade, picnics on the banks of the Isère and hikes in the mountain pastures. And of course the many activities on offer nearby. A huge breath of fresh air.
The traditional, lively village of Tignes

A wide range of friendly places
There are of course the local shops that make for a comfortable stay, but also a good choice of quality restaurants, where you can enjoy traditional local dishes in a prime setting. Among them is La Sachette, the oldest in the resort: a veritable institution created in 1893. It offers excellent local cuisine and you can take your time enjoying it on the large sunny terrace, facing the peaks.
Not far away, La Bouida – the “little cellar” in Tignard dialect – offers mountain specialities in a cosy setting of stone and wood. But there’s also l’Armailly, a charming place where you can pick from a variety of cooking styles, washed down with something tasty from the extensive wine list. If Après-ski is your thing, you can enjoy a lovely hot chocolate or mulled wine in one of the village’s many friendly bars. Party-goers can head for the Boot Room pub or the Moose for live DJs and musicians. Or hop on a shuttle bus to Val Claret, to check out the night clubs! There’s something for all the family.
