4* Le Taos, is an impressive brand new luxury ski hotel and residence for winter 2015/16. Inspiration for this new landmark property was drawn from the Native American culture of the thousand year old village of Taos in New Mexico, recognised by UNESCO as a heritage site of world interest.
Comprising both hotel and self-catering accommodation, le Taos offers a perfect solution to every skier’s accommodation needs, whether a hotel formula with daily cleaning and breakfast or half board, or a fully independent stay in an apartment suite with just end-of-stay cleaning included, and optional breakfasts and dinners as you please.
The design of the Taos is a subtle mix of mountain style and modern comforts. The hotel is located on the Lavachet slope, in the heart of the village of Tignes le Lac, offering you door-step skiing (*). The views over the resort and the surrounding Aiguille Percée and Grande Sassière from le Taos are truly amazing and the shops, bars and restaurants are a short flat walk. The Ecole de Ski Francais (ESF) ski school and the wide choice of restaurants, bars and shops are all within an easy 5 minute walk.
