Beatrice Davico and Federico Luzuy, two Oxygene instructors from Val d’Isère, fell in love with the resort of Tignes, the other half of the Espace Killy. After spending a few summer seasons here, they decided to settle full-time. Now they even participate in the annual and the ‘tignarde’ life (the nickname given to people who live in Tignes).
Both from Italy, Béa and Fede have been welcoming you in their cafe since the summer of 2021. The concept: mixing an Oxygene Ski & Snowboard school with a coffee shop in a warm and welcoming living space, singing with Italian accents, and delivering delicious vegan inspired cuisine… with a touch of pork (for the meat lovers).
As Italian tradition obliges, Béa and Fede were keen to provide a quality Italian coffee. They chose the fantastic Caffè Vergnano, a brand that is both environmentally and socially committed, and who launched the Women in Coffee programme in 2018. The mission of this brand is to support projects created by women around coffee, helping to provide financial independence.
Recipes that suit everyone
Here, you’ll find no raclette, fondue or tartiflette. Béa and Fede offer you a light but equally delicious cuisine! You’ll find appetising and healthy recipes with a twist, ones that everyone can enjoy. The menu is suitable for meat lovers, vegetarians, vegans or people who follow a gluten-free diet. Whether it is for a quick lunch break, an après-ski aperitif, a snack or simply to quench your thirst, the whole Oxygene Café team are happy to introduce you to their 100% homemade cuisine.
Great products for great recipes!
Concerned with a more ethical and eco-friendly offer, Béa and Fede have carefully chosen all the products offered to you. Because they want to use seasonal produce as much as possible, you can enjoy a different winter and summer menu. Juices, sodas, beers and bread are also locally produced. The cooking is homemade: in fact it is Béa, Fede and Olivier, who you’ll see behind the counter, making all your delicious treats.
A cozy atmosphere with a view of the peaks
The Oxygène Café will immediately seduce you with its decoration, warm atmosphere and welcome! In short, this little cocoon with a family atmosphere will be the perfect place for a salty or sweet break! And there, you can book your ski or snowboard lessons or chat with your instructor at the same time. And if you fancy soaking up the sun, don’t hesitate to take a seat on the terrace! But don’t forget your sunglasses: the sunny rays and the panorama on the peaks will blow your mind!
Much more than a café … A ski & snowboard school!
And yes, the Oxygene Café in Tignes is also the place where you can book your ski lessons! Private, group, ski or snowboard, freestyle, ski touring or tandem ski lessons… Liv, who welcomes you every day at the office with a smile, will be happy to help and advise you on a multitude of activities that you can try throughout your stay.
And if after all this you still lack inspiration for your stay, we have prepared a small selection of must-dos in Tignes!
