Discovering the Eco Resort in the Mountains
Jet2Flights@ 10:27 AM
The French ski resort of Tignes is set for another make-over, one that will set it apart from Val D’Isere, its nearby neighbour, which usually corrals the majority of ski enthusiasts to the area.
The small enclave of Tignes les Broisses, which sits quietly brooding a few hundred metres from the high altitude skiing haven of Tignes Val Claret, is to be the new location of a high-tech eco resort.
This will give skiing enthusiasts additional options next time they take cheap flights to Chambery from Jet2.com.
More Reasons to Visit Tignes
Under its new name of Tignes 1800, the area will blend a traditional Alpine style of construction with hi-tech facilities that will make Tignes home to two excellent skiing resorts and perhaps force some to think twice before heading to Val D’Isere.
Yet attracting visitors isn’t the main impetus for this redevelopment, creating a sustainable and energy conscious and efficient resort is. This is why visitors arriving on their cheap flights will find a resort boasting ski-in-ski-out apartments in a pedestrianised area, built using sustainable materials.
MGM director David Giraud told the Daily telegraph, “We attach high importance to the use of building materials which can be recycled in the longer term.”
Cheap flights to Chambery and Geneva from Jet2.com regularly take ski fans to Tignes.
