About the Hotel le Paquis

The family that own and run the hotel are direct descendants of a local family of "Tignards" who lived in the original village that was engulfed by the Lac de Chevil when the famous dam was constructed. You will be warmly welcomed by Catherine and her mother.

Le Paquis sits at 2100 metres in altitude in the Tignes resort next to the lifts and runs. It has a wellness centre with a sauna, hamman and hot tub.

The rooms at Le Paquis are equipped with a TV and private bathroom with bath or shower. Most of the rooms have a balcony or terrace with a view of Lake Tignes and the Grande Motte Glacier.

Additional facilities include luggage and ski storage, a bar with an outdoor terrace and a lounge with a fireplace

Try Acroland. Two sessions are free on our Active Pack Activity Passes. 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!

Archery and Rifle Shooting

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

Kids fun and games

The lake and all its water based activities and games is just a short walk from the hotel, or a couple of minutes by bike.

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. Grab a bike from our bike racks at the nearby Hotel Toviere, as and when you'd like to use one.

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.
