About Hotel Haut Tovieres

The Hauts de Tovière is a welcoming hotel, run exclusively by us for mountain-loving Brits in the summer. It enjoys a central location with shops and bars of central Tignes Lavachet on its doorstep.

After an unforgettable day’s biking, walking or enjoying the multitude of free mountain or lake activities, there’s nothing better than to head back to the comforts of our hotel bar and comfy lounge for afternoon tea and cakes to enjoy the evening sun. Head out to the garden (the views are incredible), stretch out on a sun lounger or take a dip in the pool* and take it slightly slower for a while. You’ve earned it.

If you’ve children who want to blow off some steam then our inclusive Active Kids Club is right at hand, and we also have our bike workshop and mechanics should you need them.

*The pool is operated by the bar next door and they prefer guests to buy a drink or ice cream whilst using the pool.

In the evenings we’ll tease your taste buds with a delicious three-course menu, (our chef is very good!), which is served 6 nights a week, leaving you free to explore the local restaurants or grab a takeaway pizza (from over the road) for staff nights off.

Lake sports

The lake at Tignes is the perfect centrepiece to this impressive resort. We offer free sessions of Paddle boarding, Canoeing, Catamaran Sailing, Kayaking and Pedalo boats on our Tignes Espace card which comes with our Active Packs.

More on lake activities >


Try Acroland. Two sessions are free in our Active Packs on your Tignes Espace Pass. Try the Hot Jump Slide and the Water Jump. Slide down on your back or belly and (if you can) finish with an acrobatic jump into the lake! A great activity to enjoy break the ice with our fellow guests.

More on Acroland

Archery and Rifle Shooting

Another free-and-inclusive activity which is all-inclusive: your archery instructors will introduce you to this ancient art which has evolved with modern technology. Afterwards, head back down to Lavachet (by our hotel) to test your aim with air rifle shooting. Lots of fun for all ages 8+.

For the sunshine record

Tignes is a southern resort and enjoys a healthy dose of sunshine, in fact up to 300 day’s sunshine a year. This means the summers are predictably warm and dry and you’ll return home with a deep suntan as well as plethora of new active experiences under your belt.

About Tignes

Tignes is set around a beautiful lake which hosts a whole heap of (mostly free) mountain and water based fun for all ages. Many of the activities are included within our Active Packs. We also include free mountain bike hire and even a free biking lift pass! Tignes is famous for the weird and wonderful (if slightly wacky) activities like the Giant Slide, Water balls and the Crazy Airbag.

But we really love Tignes for its sheer variety: the best summer skiing and boarding in Europe (until early August); the resorts’ hot and sunny climate (300 days sunshine a year); and its great golf courses, via ferrata and horse riding.

One thing’s for sure - you’ll never be bored in Tignes!

Family-friendly fun

Tignes was made for families! The sheer variety of activities on offer will ensure that adults and kids of all ages, (from 4 to 17), are well entertained - with more free and inclusive activities than you can shake a kayak paddle at! The hotel enjoys a central position close to the activities and the lake – so it’s ideal for families to come and go when little legs get tired. And all kids love the outdoor pool next door and our own Active Kids Club (in house) which operates for five half days a week. Plenty of time for parents to enjoy some “time out” or get to relax while their children go wild, making new friends in club.

Why Choose Hotel Toviere?

For the glacier

Tignes’ glacier offers the best summer skiing and boarding in Europe. Expect up to 30 Km’s of pisted runs and even powder snow in July! We love skiing on the glacier in summertime because it’s laid back, fun in the sun and the snow is pretty good too!

You can also try from a range of walks to the base of the glacier and its’ snow-line. Either hike up from Val Claret or take the funicular train. The more adventurous hikers can pack some crampons (rented from a local shop) and take a mountain guide, which we can arrange.

For the Weather

Tignes is a very southern resort and has one of the best sun shine records in the Alps. The resort is situated around a large lake, its centre-point, which is used for watersports and relaxation.

Warm temps and lake activities with lots of sun bathing - seems to be the activity that prevails, most days of the summer! The height of the resort and its glacier also means sun cream is a must!

For the Biking

For our Tignes guests we provide a free bikers lift pass which is a real bonus! This pass will access the full lift system and more than 350 Km’s of exciting bike trails spanning over into Val d’isere for Cross Country, Downhill, Northshore bike parks and ...well... you name it, Tignes has it!

Tignes provides a level of facilities and bike trails which are among the finest in Europe. We recommend that guests hire a full suspension bike to make best use of the trails using the lifts.
