Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Tignes

Tignes Spirit
Tignes Spirit allows skiers to book online and have a specialised technician come out and fit you for boots and equipment in the comfort of your chalet.
Precision Ski
Precision Ski has four outlets in Tignes, and offer boots that really fit the, er, foot.
Nevada Sports
If Nevada Sports knows one thing, it's how to fit boots. Slip into something oh-so comfortable.
Ecole du ski Français
Ecole du Ski Français specialises in off-piste skiing, and in Val d'Isere there's plenty of off-piste routes to sample.
New Generation
Brit-owned New Generation offers tuition for everyone, from beginners to advanced.
Parapente
Get a bird's-eye-view of Tignes with a paragliding flight. Book with Happyphyll; you're sure to be in safe hands.
Evolution Two
Evolution Two is one of the biggest ski schools in the French Alps; finally, a challenger to ESF.
Ice Diving
Forget skating on thin ice; dive beneath it at Tignes le Lac.
Altitude Spa
A spa with, er, altitude; the in-house spa at the Hotel des Campanules offers facials, massages and a slew of other treatments to keep you you feeling fresh.
Restaurant d’altitude Le Panoramic
Restaurant d'altitude Le Panoramic may not offer the most salubrious surroundings, but by God is the food good.
Melting Pot
The Melting Pot does exactly what it says on the tin with an eclectic music policy that has 'em queuing up outside.
TC’s Bar & Grill
TC's Bar & Grill stocks more different types of drinks than a ski bunny could ever get through in any one visit.
Le Lavachet Lounge
Le Lavachet Lounge is a chic chill-out bar that caters to the apres-ski cocktail-loving crowd.
Le Blue Girl
Le Blue Girl is euro trash at its very best; expect pop and a crowd of lively revelers until very, very late.
Couloir
Couloir claims to be the home of live music in Tignes, and we're not inclined to argue.
Le Bergerie
Le Bergerie is perfect for group dinners with long tables and a beautiful south-facing terrace that's great for sipping sundowners on.
La Ferme Des 3 Capucines
La Ferme Des 3 Capucines offers fabulous French fare in an authentic French farmhouse. What more could you want?
L’Escale Blanche
Beyond the steaks and pizzas, L'Escale Blanche is actually one of the resort's most interesting eateries with fabulous fondue on the menu.
L’Arbina
L'Arbina is a hotel that's a perfect place for languid lunches and decadent dinners.
The Diva
The Diva is the largest hotel in Tignes, and proves one and for all that size does matter.
Village Montana
Village Montana is like a mini village, comprising two hotels, chalets, four restaurants, two bars and two spas; if it wasn't for the slopes, there'd be no reason to leave.
Levanna
Levanna is one of the most convenient places to stay on the slopes, with 40 small but perfectly formed rooms.
Chalet Rosset
Following a refurbishment in 2007, Chalet Rosset has been given a new lease of life; indeed, it's a clean, comfortable place to catch forty winks.
Chalet Colinn
Get some peace and quiet at Chalet Colinn, with views out over the Tignes Dam and a remote location away from the town.
