If you’re looking for somewhere to rent a ski chalet, La Tania is still relatively off the beaten track. Located in the Courchevel Valley in between the far better known resorts of Courchevel and Meribel, it is a great destination for those who want to avoid the hustle, bustle and bluster of other resorts. And, while it has developed a fine reputation as a family resort, there’s still plenty for those in younger groups looking to let their hair down. Originally developed as part of the infrastructure for the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics, the resort has become a firm favourite for those who want something away from the more popular and often over-loaded local resorts.
Great Things in Small Packages
Although it’s celebrating twenty years as a ski resort popular amongst discerning heads looking for a chalet, La Tania hasn’t been submerged under a flood of development. It’s managed to retain a compact central core that makes it very straight-forward for newcomers to navigate, even on the more blustery winter evenings that they decide to leave the comfort of their chalet. La Tania has a convenient central cluster of restaurants, bars, shops and other entertainment venues, including a cinema. The centre of the resort is free of traffic, keeping it safe and secure for families with small children making their way around the shops and restaurants.
This small stature makes the resort a place full of charm – the location of the various amenities is not the only strong selling point of choosing the location for a chalet. La Tania is also located slap bang in the middle of the largest continuous ski area in the world, Les Trois Vallees. The proximity the resort enjoys to this vast ski area gives visitors access to a whopping 600km of runs, providing enough of the white stuff for people to return over a few years before they can cover every mile of the supreme piste. This family friendly resort is perfectly poised for those looking to clock up the miles on skis or by board.
The resort has other benefits thanks to its relative obscurity: it is considered much more affordable than its more illustrious neighbours, being unable to offer the renowned prestige of Courchevel or the sprawling scope of Meribel. If you want to take a skiing holiday in the region, this delightful resort represents a great opportunity in terms of location at an affordable price for all sizes and ages of travelling groups.
