We are located just behind the church in the village of Tignes Les Brevieres. Once you have made your journey to the village you head down the main high street, past the church which has a post office and ESF ski school adjacent to it. You turn left up the little road past the cash point and left again so you are walking behind the post office’s building and we are on the right!!

Self Drive

There is parking directly outside the chalet. There are also two large car parks at either end of the village where the car can be left for the week – both are free. Please note that all mountain passes also known as a ‘Col’ are shut during the winter, do not listen to your SatNav. Follow directions to Albertville, then Moutiers and finally Tignes Les Brevieres. Planning a route that involves the Mont Blanc tunnel will take you over these mountain passes which are shut from October/November time because of the millions of tons of white stuff that has started to fall.



Geneva is about 2 ½ hours by road away from the resort (this time can fluctuate due to busy traffic) and new for this Winter there is a regular coach service once a day you can catch right into the middle of Tignes Les Brevieres for only €85 return. See more information at the bottom of this page.

Ben’s Bus

Low cost, high quality, direct, shared ski transfer service to Tignes from Geneva Airport & Grenoble Airport for English speaking, independent holidaymakers. They have an fast and easy to use website that you can book through and they will send you out an e-ticket with lots of information. The standard price for a return ski transfer this year is £76pp but if you travel in a group, they offer some really good discounts. They have reps to help you bypass any language difficulties but they do only operate on Saturdays and Sundays and are very popular, so its best to get in there early.

Cool Bus

Cool Bus have been providing transfers in the Tarentaise for nearly 15 years from their base just down the road in Bourg St. Maurice. With their distinctive fleet of 24 VW Caravelle minibuses they are big enough to cope with a large volume of clients during the peak weekends but still small enough to ensure every customer gets the same high level of service that has seen customers come back and book with them year after year. Clients can book on their website with instant confirmation and receive special rates for off-peak weekends, Sundays and mid-week.
