A very welcome return to Tignes! The Alpaka Lodge has been run as a small private hotel with a popular bar by British couple Jill and Sander for many years and we are delighted to be taking over this welcoming  chalet for the forthcoming Winter.

A traditional Tignes style  building, the Alpaka is full of character and charm assuring our guests of a warm and welcoming stay. The dining room has picture windows on two sides affording wonderful mountain views. Bedrooms are all ensuite and have  access to wifi.

The cosy and friendly public bar on the ground floor  has a large central fireplace providing a great focal point and plenty of comfy seating. A perfect spot to sit back and relax with a cup of tea and slice of cake at afternoon tea before perhaps moving onto something stronger!  Regulars will be delighted to know that Jill will be continuing to run the bar so maintaining the cosy, friendly atmosphere and delightful ambience that is so much part of the Alpaka Lodge. BT sports is available for sports fans so you don't need to miss your favourite matches  and  the bar hosts  a varied Apres ski programme  for you to enjoy……. without even having to put your coat on and venture outside!

So…… a comfortable bed, hot water, welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff, good food  and après ski on tap, not to mention some fantastic introductory offers  – what more could you ask for!


Fantastically situated in the heart of Lac de Tignes,  you can access both sides of the valley with a multitude of ski lifts and runs on your doorstep - either ski a gentle slope directly behind the Lodge to the Chaudannes and Paquis chair lifts, or a short walk to the foot of the Toviere for  nursery slopes, ski school meeting points and choice of lifts. You could probably take a different route from the chalet each morning!.  The resort facilities are on hand just a stroll from the Lodge including the excellent Sports centre with indoor pool, spa and fitness centre situated lakeside.

Short Description

At 2100m this is one of Europe's highest resorts. Linked with Val d'Isere, it also makes up part of the Espace Killy offering 300km of runs. Although not the prettiest of resorts, the choice of accomodation is huge and there really is something for everyone here. It is also worth noting that a few new "upper end" chalets have emerged and several of the chalets are either ski in ski out or very close to the slopes. The resort itself is made up of 3 high altitude resorts - Tignes Le Lac (the main part), Tignes Le Lavachet and Tignes Val Claret. Beginners will love the nursery slopes, cruisy blues and green runs. Intermediates and experts can practice their carving on the long wide open pistes and move on to the mogul fields at Toviere and Solaise. Then there is the fabulous off-piste opportunities that the "Espace Killy" has to offer. After all that skiing you will need a drink or to to "wind down". Whilst not as bustling as Val d'Isere, there are still plenty of bars to choose from.
