Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in La Tania - La Saboia B

Top Floor Duplex Apartment, Sleeps 8, Sauna, Free Underground Parking, Wifi

Our large top floor duplex apartment in La Saboia B enjoys a perfect location in La Tania, just off the Folyeres piste, allowing you to ski straight down to the lifts, from where you can access all 600km pistes of the 3 valleys ski area, and then ski right back to the door. Located at the top of the village, it is just a couple of minutes walk to the village.

At 61m2 (+9m2 balcony), our apartment is spacious (sleeps up to 8 & perfect for families or groups). On the first floor there is a large open plan living area (with TV/DVD/Wii & free WI-FI) with 2 pull-out sofa beds (one double bed and 2 single beds), a well-equipped kitchen & dining area. On this floor there is a bathroom(bath/sink) and washing machine which saves on packing. There is also underfloor heating and plenty of storage space. On the second floor, there are 2 bedrooms (one has twin beds and one has bunk beds), a single bed on the mezzanine level, a second bathroom(shower/sink) & sauna. We also have a car parking space in the basement & a ski locker

Half way between Courchevel and Meribel, La Tania is in the centre of the 3 Valleys and is surrounded by sensational skiing and boarding country and there are plenty of things to do in the summer also!

In Winter, it is the perfect base for snow sports, with easy ski-to-the-door access to the finest skiing in the world’s largest ski area.

In Summer, it's an ideal place from which to enjoy the highs of mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, paragliding, rafting and walking.

In La Tania, you can leave your accommodation on your skis to discover all 600km of the 3 Valleys ski area with ski runs suitable for all ability levels and includes unlimited off-piste skiing.

La Tania lies in the heart of a magnificent forest and the resort is at an ideal altitude of 1,400 meters. There are two superb red runs, one perfect blue and a gentle green to ski back to the village. The resort centre is fully pedestrianised and hence offers security to children and skiers.

From it's humble beginnings as a mountain side village, La Tania ski resort officially opened in 1990 largely on the back of the Winter Olympics in Albertville in 1992 but has grown into a resort in its own right since then still retaining a village like atmosphere where everyone knows everyone.

La Tania is one of the most attractive and characteristic parts of the 3 Valleys, less expensive but with equal convenience of access. La Tania's slopes face north ensuring good skiing conditions all winter.

From our apartment you can ski to the twelve-man telecabine or drag lift in under a minute, from there you can connect to the 'Dou de Lanches' express four-man chairlift which will take you up to the 'Col De La Loze', linking you to all of the 3 valleys.

In La Tania, there is 4 ski hire shops, a tourist office, post office, bakery, tabac, newsagent, supermarket, 6 bars and 8 restaurants (with 4 mountain restaurants above the resort) and pizza takeaway. There is live music, drinks promotions and après-ski parties taking place throughout the ski season.

The resort also has great facilities for children (non ski creches/ ski schools with creches, private nanny services etc ..)

Skiing, Boarding and Other Winter Activities

SKI INFORMATION

If you dream of endless slopes, with another direction to ski every day, then the 3 Valleys with it's 600km of varied ski runs within one area, then look no further. Just look at some of the stats!

Ski Slopes: 600km

Number of ski lifts: 200

Number of skiers transported hourly: 260,000

Number of snow cannons: 1,500

Hectares of groomed runs: 2,500

Number of ski patrollers: 320

Piste bashers: 70

Ski instructors: 1,500

Cross-country ski tracks: 130 km

Beginners

For beginners and children there are small, gentle nursery slopes with a free nursery drag lift at the foot of the ski lifts. There is a lovely long green run cut through the woods backdown to the village making a wonderful long trail to grow your skills on, served direct from the village gondola. There are also a number of easy blues to attempt higher up in the Courchevel valley.

Beginners have a choice of ski schools in La Tania (See ski school section). They operate in special beginner areas and have English speaking instructors that are happy to provide group or private lessons.

Intermediates

Keen skiers will relish the limitless number of exciting challenges that are available to those based in La Tania. You’ll find trails up to 8km long in this part of the world’s biggest ski area. La Tania itself has some excellent intermediate level terrain directly above it. There is an ultra-modern gondola to whisk skiers up to the pistes of Courchevel and a chairlift which links up with Meribel, giving access to the vast 600kms of runs of the 3 Valleys network.

Advanced

Expert skiers will be fully tested with all the outstanding skiing opportunities available; endless off-piste trails, wicked mogul fields, plunging tree-lined descents and awesome couloirs.

The Courchevel Valley has some of the best advanced skiing in the entire Three Valleys and some of it is right on La Tania’s doorstep, with the rest only a lift ride or two away. The nearest advanced terrain includes a black run down through the woods just above the village down to Le Praz. A second black, this time above the treeline, descends from the Col de la Loze served by the Dou des Lanches.

The Courchevel Valley is famous for its steep terrain and off piste trails and the ski schools and mountain guides, knowing the best spots, will be happy to guide you there. Runs from La Saulire are especially challenging with some tough couloirs – dubbed The Ugly Sisters with an official grade of black but blacker than most runs you’ll find elsewhere.

Snowboarding & Freestyle Skiing

The 3 Valleys are superb for freeriders and there is a choice of terrain parks in each valley, although not one specific to La Tania. Instead the closest choices are above Courchevel which has a railpark under the Plantrey chair or popping over to Meribel where the Moon Park is generally regarded as one of the best in the Alps.

In addition a family friendly park was created in the Verdans area recently. Freedriders will enjoy bouncing through the trees above La Tania and will find open powder field below the Dou der Lanches chairs. There are hundreds of 'off piste' routes to discover. Both ski schools offer a whole range of snowboarding lessons from beginner to expert level including off piste tours.

Cross Country Skiing

La Tania is situated on a cross country trail that links Meribel and Courchevel meaning that you can connect to the network of trails at each resort (about 40km at Meribel and 70km at Courchevel) going in either direction. All the cross country trails are free of charge but they sometimes cross downhill ski pistes so caution is sometimes required! One of the closest areas is the Olympic Nordic sports venue for the 1992 Albertville Winter Games located at Le Praz, Courchevel 1300, just along the road from Le Tania.

Walkers

If you're less of a skiier and more of a walker you won't be short of something to do. The 3 Valleys are criss-crossed by a network of small forest roads which in the winter are transformed into a magical walking experience.

Other Winter Activities

Check out the Tourist Office in La Tania, Méribel and Courchevel for details of snow-shoe walks, toboganning, paragliding, indoor climbing, ice skating, 10-pin bowling, ice karting, dog-sledding through the forest etc..

WEEKLY EVENTS & TORCH LIGHT DESCENT

Go and try the free drink 'Green Chaud' every Sunday 5 pm at

the Tourist Office and discover the French Ski School Slalom, the Torch light descent, resort concerts and any other specific activities that week. The full entertainment programme is available from the Tourist Office of La Tania.

Summer Activities

In summertime, the 3 Valleys transforms into a playground for those that love the outdoors. There is an endless choice of walking, hiking and biking routes of varying distances and levels of difficulty. And the scenery is simply stunning.

In July and August, you can expect beautiful weather. Combined with the fresh Alpine air, it makes for an ideal break away from it all.

Here are some of the activities that you can do in La Tania or nearby during the summer months.

In La Tania itself, there's an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, volley ball / basketball court, boules pitch, downhill mountain bike race course and table tennis tables. In summer, there is a weekly Giant barbeque in the forest.

Of course from La Tania, you can access all of the 3 Valleys terrain through the lift systems for a choice of hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, paragliding/parapenting, walking, via ferrata, ice climbing, fishing etc...

In the surrounding area, you can go white water rafting, hydrospeeding , quadbiking, paintballing, archery, clay pigeon shooting and horseriding. There is a 9 hole golf course in Courchevel and an 18 hole golf course in Meribel.

In nearby beautiful Annecy, you can go wake boarding and water skiing.

Or you can just simply relax in the sun with a book and some music perhaps.

Dont forget that you can go summer skiing and snowboarding in nearby Tignes. The Tignes glacier has up to 16 lifts open in summer and there is up to 20km of pistes and a funpark up near the top of the Grand Motte. Beware as summer skiing is from 7.15am to 1pm.

There are plenty of places of interest to visit in the region as day trips. The beautiful village of Annecy and its famous lake is a short drive away (70km). Or you could perhpas take a trip to Mont Blanc (90km) for some serious climbing or for those less inclined you can ride the cable car to Aiguille du Midi from Chamonix to enjoy spectacular views of Mont Blanc.

Check out the tourist office for a weekly listing of activities in La Tania and nearby for each week.
