If you are looking for a new Alpine destination in which to go skiing, La Tania should definitely be top of your list. This beautiful village is located close to the popular and rather more illustrious resorts of Meribel and Courchevel and offers equally good skiing at a fraction of the cost. For those who are new to skiing, La Tania is a particularly good choice, as there are several beginner slopes leading right back into resort; more advanced skiers can make full use of the easy access to the famous Three Valley ski area.
A Great Place for Skiing
The village itself is built around six apartment blocks that are primarily functional. That said, however, they do not detract from the beauty of the Alpine chalets that are dotted through the village and dominate the scenery here. It is a young village, nestled into north facing forests, and was purpose built for the 1992 Albertville Olympics. Proud of its Olympic ski run close by in La Praz, the village is also served by some high-class lifts and an efficient infrastructure.
In the resort you will find everything you need, from local shops, ski schools, great restaurants and funky bars for that compulsory après ski action. It may be considered less trendy than its neighbors, but it has a charm all its own and boasts some lovely local French bars and restaurants too, for an authentic experience.
