LA TANIA, FRANCE

 

The newest resort in The Three Valleys, La Tania is located in the Courchevel valley at an altitude of 1350metres. Nestling between two traditional hamlets and sheltered by a spruce forest, La Tania blends perfectly into the natural surroundings. 

Often quoted "the best kept secret in the Three Valleys" this growing resort was originally built in 1990 by Architect Jacques Labro, he used natural materials to preserve the feel of the area and in 1992 when the Winter Olympics were held in the Three Valleys, La Tania housed the ice hockey teams and many of the journalists.

Its best appeal is the traffic free, pedestrian centre, its makes La Tania a perfect choice for families. La Tania chalets mainly surrounded by pine trees and of course the magnificent Alpine views. 

Families and groups who enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere after skiing favor the atmosphere of this leisurely paced resort. Apres-ski is less expensive and formal than its neighbouring resorts. In the evenings it can, however get very lively at one of the few bars in La Tania, with regular live bands and what can only be described as an intimate but buzzing atmosphere.

A large telecabine serves La Tania giving the non-skiers a chance to meet and enjoy lunch or even an end of ski Vin Chaud, reportedly the best around at Le Bouc Blanc restaurant. A free bus service to Courchevel 1850, during the day means that it's also possible to meet friends at different restaurants during the day or just to browse the endless array of fashionable shops.
