Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in La Tania - Apartment 43, Saboia B
Fully refurbished for 2013/14 season our spacious (66 sq m plus 8 sq m balcony) duplex apartment is on the fourth floor of this typical apartment building in La Tania and sleeps maximum 8.

The living area is bright, spacious and comfortable with large picture windows and a door leading out to the south facing balcony with views over the mountains and forest.
The building is located near the top of the resort and you can ski in and out easily. It couldn't be easier to pop home for lunch in the sun before going back to the slopes for an afternoon ski.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The apartment was spacious and we enjoyed the overall feel of the place very much, the kitchenette was well loaded with plenty of crockery (nothing worse than having to constantly cycle plates/dishes), and the variety of pots/pans was great too. We found your apartment to be excellent value for money, wonderfully located close to, yet far away enough from the village to be very family friendly.
I've been a keen skier since childhood - my parents never took summer holidays, only winter holidays and those often in Meribel. I worked two ski seasons after university and dragged my husband to the mountains when we were in our 20s. Our three children have skied since they were 4 years old and one of them has done his own ski season now. We live in London and sadly still only have time for one week skiing each year but it's one family holiday we never miss.
Our main criteria when buying our apartment was to combine a level of affordability, ease of access and the best possible skiing we could find. La Tania is THE perfect resort for this, being so wonderfully connected to one of the largest and best linked ski areas in France. We wanted ski in and and ski out since we all hate lugging our skis around; and, as we were limited to school holidays, we wanted somewhere with a good and well maintained lift system - we hate queueing! Even in peak weeks we have never had to queue for long either in La Tania itself or anywhere else in the Three Valleys as the French invest so wonderfully in their ski lifts - each year we come across newer and faster ones. Final bonus - the wonderful Folyeres run back to our apartment is of the best 'home runs' in the alps. We love the Three Valleys and in our opinion La Tania is the best of all possible locations in the Three Valleys for a great family holiday.
We love this apartment for it's view of the mountains, the sun on the balcony at lunchtime, the spacious living room which is so bright and sunny during the daytime. We often pop back for lunch in the apartment - jump out of our skis outside and run up to enjoy a baguette in the sun on the balcony. Then off back up the La Tania bubble - no queue - and a great afternoon skiing. Last vin chaud in the Bouc Blanc before a blast down the Folyeres back to the apartment at the end of the day for a well earned sauna and shower.
