Le Dôme is a comfortable and excellent value Chalet Hotel, ideally located in the picturesque village of Tignes 1850.
Access to the skiing couldn’t be easier, as the main high-speed Boisses 8-person gondola, opened just two years ago, takes you straight to a choice of chairlifts - one up to the Aiguille Percée, and the other to the top of the Chaudannes slopes above Tignes Le Lac. Or you can ski the leisurely blue down to Tignes Les Brevières and take the Sache cable-car up from there.
You can also ski right back to the Chalet Hotel at the end of the day, and for access to the other Tignes villages of Le Lac and Val Claret, the free ski-bus runs until midnight. Le Dôme’s en suite bedrooms all have a cosy, traditional feel and have been recently refurbished to the style shown above.
The bar and lounge area have a log-burner and free Wi-Fi, making this the ideal place to relax, whether over afternoon tea, pre-dinner canapés and aperitifs, or coffee and a nightcap at the end of the day.
