4* Le Taos, is an impressive newly built luxury ski hotel and residence. The hotel is located on the Lavachet slope, in the heart of the village of Tignes le Lac, offering you door-step skiing (snow and level depending). The ski school, shops, bars and restaurants are all within an easy 5-minute walk.
The 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. The views over the resort and the surrounding Aiguille Percée and Grande Sassière from le Taos are truly amazing. The design of the Taos is a subtle mix of mountain style and modern comforts.
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.
