LA TANIA, FRANCE

Ski Holidays in La Tania, France

One of France's best kept skiing secrets, La Tania lies between Courchevel and Meribel in the extensive Three Valleys ski area. Purpose-built in 1992 for the Winter Olympics, this pretty little resort has been sympathetically constructed using natural materials. A free bus service links La Tania with Courchevel 1850 during the day, although skiers will prefer to take the gondola straight up to the ski area.

Having been pretty much purpose built in 1992 for the Winter Olympics you're just two lifts away from Courchevel and Meribel, in either direction, and the fast new telecabine swiftly transports you to the heart of the 3 valleys, with access to over 600kms of runs. The resort centre is a car-free zone, and the nightlife for ski holidays in La Tania is quieter than it’s busy neighbours of Courchevel and Meribel, but with a friendly and ‘petite’ ambience, there are various bars and bistros in and around the village.
