To start planning your vacation to Les Suites du Nevada
Les Suites du Nevada is the first 5* hotel in the resort of Tignes. Close to the slopes, in the heart of Val Claret, it’s a luxury boutique offering, blending traditional alpine chalet architecture with contemporary design, with an exciting focus on gastronomy. Owned and managed by the husband and wife team Jean-Michel and Catherine Bouvier who have a pedigree track record in stylish hospitality, the hotel is the resort’s most luxurious place to stay. Jean-Michel is the chef and is in charge of everything from breakfast through to dinner, whilst Catherine’s extraordinary eye for design can be admired everywhere, and even copied, with a shop in the hotel itself.
With just 25 suites, guests can choose between the Classique and the Tradition - the latter being slightly larger in size. Each one is individually styled and decorated, and they are all both spacious and truly luxurious. Comprising either one or two bedrooms, they are ideal for couples or families with older children.
There is a lively bar just off the reception area - the Whitney Bar - which has a real buzz about the place. With its excellent selection of cocktails and comfy sofas - it's a lovely place for relaxing with an aperitif before dinner or a few drinks after. The hotel's own gastronomic restaurant is headed up by Jean-Michel and serves a mouth-watering selection of Savoyard cuisine - including a stunning fish dish with the main ingredient coming straight from Lake Geneva. A wonderful buffet greets you each morning for breakfast with a hearty choice of fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries, bread, meats and cheeses to set you up for a great day on the slopes. Jean-Michel also owns and runs the Panoramic restaurant on the Grande Motte glacier. At 3032m above sea level, the 360 degree views from here are astounding and the food doesn't disappoint either.
Access to the slopes couldn't be easier. They are just 100m from the door and since the hotel can arrange your ski passes, there's no need to spend time in a queue when you arrive. The staff at Les Suites du Nevada are incredibly friendly and provide an excellent, personal level of service, taking care of your every need. The concierge service can organize restaurant bookings and babysitting.
Tignes is at the heart of the Tarentaise valley and part of the vast Espace Killy. Linked to its sister resort Val d'Isere, it has over 300km of pistes and is arguably one of the world’s best ski areas. Its altitude means that it has one of France's highest snow sure factors, and with terrain suitable for every level and an exceptionally good lift system, it's a great ski destination.
The 25 suites are either Classique or Tradition, sleeping between two people and four people. In addition, there are two very large suites on the top floor - Glacier Suite and Nevada Suite that can be taken together. Perfect for larger families or friends. They all have WiFi internet access, flat screen TV, Blue-Ray DVD player, iPod docking station, mini bar, safe and balcony. The bathrooms have a rain-shower and a whirlpool bath.
|Classique Suite for two people||
Sleeping 2 people, the Classique suites are large open plan rooms (45m²), with a king sized bed, sitting room with LCD, Blue-ray DVD & iPod dock. The en-suite bathroom has a large shower & bath, with separate loo.
|Tradition Suite for two people||
The main difference between this suite and the Classique is that is slightly larger (50m²) and the decor is a little more understated.
|Classique Suite for four people||
A two bedroom suite (65m²) ideal for families, made up of master bedroom with king size bed, sitting room with LCD, Blue ray DVD and iPod dock and second bedroom with twin beds. There are two bathrooms, the master has a shower and bath and the second just a shower. Separate WCs.
|Tradition Suite for four people||
With a similar layout and facilities to the Classique, the Tradition Suite is slightly larger (75m²) and is more understated in style.
A large suite of 135m² located on the top floor of the hotel which can be privatised along with the adjacent Nevada suite.
This large duplex suite(168m²) is the penthouse apartment, with two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, sitting room with Home-Cinema screen, Blue-ray DVD & iPod dock.
Whilst there are no specific childcare facilities at the hotel, children are welcome and equipment such as cots and high chairs are available. We feel that the hotel is best suited to families with older children who don't require childcare.
La Table en Montagne at Les Suites du Nevada is one of the best places to eat in Tignes and Jean-Michel Bouvier is renowned for his cuisine. The Whitney Bar with it open fire has a lovely atmosphere and the perfect place to relax after a day on the slopes. The Ô des Cimes Spa is a luxurious wellness center with swimming pool, Jacuzzi, saunas, Hamman, fitness center and beauty center.
Location & Directions
Conveniently located in the center of Val Claret in Tignes, it's a short walk of about 100m to the nearest ski lift.
When to go
Tignes boasts one of the longest ski seasons in the world as it benefits from one of the highest locations at 2,100m, and 80% of the skiing happens above 2000 meters. As a result, early and late season offer reliable great conditions. Being high, it is cold though and we think March and April are the best times to visit Tignes
