Hotel Pool

Anyone who has taken winter sports holidays before will tell you that a swimming pool back at your hotel is a real treat.

After a day on the slopes, being able to just pop downstairs to take a dip in the private heated pool is a welcome indulgence.

The pool is good size, plenty big enough to enjoy a few leisurely lengths to stretch out tired muscles or for a bit of après ski fun with the kids.

Chalet board, wine included

All guests at L’Ecrin are booked on a chalet board basis. For the uninitiated, chalet board was designed around ski holidays to enable guests to relax and enjoy their downtime with a minimum of effort after the day’s exertions on the slopes.

Included in your holiday are a substantial breakfast (full English or continental), a reviving afternoon tea in the afternoon, complete with homemade cakes, and a 3-course dinner with complimentary wine to accompany your meal.

Our friendly staff will ensure you’re relaxed and well fed and the mix of small and large tables in the restaurant provide a convivial atmosphere whether dining as a couple, family or with new friends.

All you need in one resort

With snow sure ski runs, an extensive ski area and good transport connections, Tignes has earned its reputation as one of France’s premier ski resorts. Composed of five connecting villages, Tignes sits high above many other ski resorts on a beautiful mountain plateau at an altitude of 2100m, meaning that the resort is guaranteed snow throughout the whole winter season. Combine this with a well-connected lift system, accessible from all three of the villages and a bustling atmosphere makes Tignes one of the most dependable winter destinations in the Alps.
