Planning a skiing weekend in one of the French Alps’ ski chalets? La Tania is the perfect place for an exciting and adventurous weekend get-away. Nestled in a picturesque pine forest and surrounded by snow-capped mountains, this quaint resort has a reputation for being laid back and family-oriented. However, don’t let the peaceful ambience of this tiny hamlet fool you; the resort has various attractions to satisfy the adventurous soul. With its cosy atmosphere and access to all of ‘The Three Valleys’ via more than 200 inter-resort lifts, the resort provides the best of both worlds for vacationers-intimacy and adventure!
Of course, skiing is the first reason to book into one the town’s ski chalets. La Tania boasts various runs for skiers of all levels, including a beginners’ slope. Don’t worry if you’ve never skied before, there are plenty of schools and professional instructors available for lessons. For expert skiers, The Three Valleys, which includes Courchevel, Meribel, and Val Thorens comprise one of the world’s largest ski resort areas. There are over 600 kilometres of runs for varying challenge and expertise levels, all easily reached via lifts. If you want a real adrenaline rush, check out the black ski run, Marielle Goitschel, named after one of the local Olympic champions.
While it is undoubtedly cool to ski right from the front doors of its ski chalets, La Tania offers many other winter sports for winter sport enthusiasts. Snowboarding is probably the second most popular sport in the area. As with skiing, good facilities and instructors are available for beginner lessons. Locally, snowboarders can check out the blue Folyeres or the red Moretta Blanche for snowboarding opportunities for freestylers. Beautiful snow parks in the area include those in Les Menuires, Meribel-Mottaret, and Meribel. The Moon Park in Meribel, in particular, is considered one of the best snowparks in the French Alps. Snowshoeing, dogsledding, and skating, as well as sightseeing and hiking, are only a few of the other available options.
Fine Dining and Nightlife
Nights can be just as exciting! There’s no need to spend your evenings cooped up in the ski chalets. La Tania offers a lively mix of dining and entertainment establishments for a great night out on the town. A wonderful dinner is always a great reason to leave your ski chalets. La Tania has several great restaurants, including La Taiga and the Michelin Star-awarded Le Farçon, both of which offer scrumptious and authentic Savoyard cuisine. Then, for a nightcap or a night of dancing, head off to one of the town’s great pubs, such as the Chrome Bar or the famous Ski Lodge Bar, a British-run bar with live music and dancing. If you want an after-dark adventure, head to the larger clubs in nearby Courchevel or Meribel.
