Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in La Tania - Apartment 43, Saboia B

Ideal for 6 (max 8) with mountain views and easy access to and from the slopes

Our spacious (66 sq m plus 8 sq m balcony) and recently refurbished duplex apartment is on the fourth floor of this typical apartment building in La Tania and sleeps 6 in comfort and maximum 8.

There are 2 good size bedrooms with twin beds, two bathrooms and a sauna. There is a mezzanine which sleeps two and with the further possibility for two more people sleeping on sofa beds in the spacious living area.

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.

If you are driving we have a reserved space in the underground car park as well as an external parking space in a secure car park. If you come by train from Paris to Moutiers its only a half hour taxi ride up the mountain. The resort facilities are a five minute walk away.

Bedroom 1 with twin beds is on the mezzanine floor with a window over-looking the mountains.

Bedroom 2 is as you come into the apartment on the left and has twin beds and a window overlooking the valley.

Mezzanine - this has been extended to accommodate two single beds.

The bathroom on the mezzanine floor has a shower cubicle, toilet, basin and a sauna.

The bathroom on the main floor next to bedroom two has a bath with hand shower, toilet and basin.

The kitchen which has been completely renewed for the 2015/2016 season is located discretely in the living/dining area and is small but adequately equipped with a sink, four ring electric hob, dishwasher, fridge and a combi microwave. Filter coffee machine and electric kettle supplied.

There is a washing machine situated in a recess in the entrance hall.

The living/dining room is large, bright and spacious. There is a pine table, bench seat and chairs and two sofas with pull out beds under. Large picture windows with door leading out to south facing balcony.

A new 32 ins flat screen TV is available with UK and French free sat channels. Free WIFI is available.

Our property managers will meet you the day of your arrival to welcome you and take care of any queries.

Final cleaning is included.

Bed linen and towels are included for up to 6 guests for a small extra charge.

About Caroline Charnock

I've been a keen skier since childhood and my husband started when we met.  Our three children (now grown up) have skied since they were 4 years old. We live in London and use the apartment ourselves for at least two weeks every ski season.

Caroline Charnock purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Caroline Charnock chose The Three Valleys

My husband and I bought Saboia 43 in 2006.  Initially we leased it back to a French holiday company but since 2013 we have taken back control and are now letting it ourselves to private individuals.  This also means that we have been able to make improvements and add our own touches which has been a lot of fun and very rewarding.  Just this season we have had the mezzanine extended and put in a new kitchen.

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 initially 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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Wonderful week skiing in this fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous week in La Tania. This is a lovely apartment - high ceilings and sunny. It is beautifully and tastefully decorated, and has absolutely everything you need. We really appreciated the washing machine with two young children and great internet connection and satellite TV. Despite the fact it is so close to the centre of La Tania, it felt very private and we enjoyed soaking up some rays at lunchtime on the balcony before hitting the slopes again.

Caroline, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful giving us great tips on eating out, ski schools and local information and was very quick to reply to any queries. Through her contacts, we arranged ski passes, lessons and ski hire before our arrival which saved a lot of time.

Thank you Caroline for a wonderful week.

A great property with plenty of space & ski in/out

  • 4 of 5

Four of us stayed in this property, but it could easily have accomodated 6 grown-ups. It had everything you needed for a great skiing holiday. La Tania is a great place to stay with easy access into the 3 Valleys ski region, but without the high costs of Courcheval or the walking in Meribel. An excellent place to stay.

Uitstekend appartement op goede locatie.

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben dit jaar 2 x het genoegen mogen smaken om in dit appartement een week door te brengen als uitvalsbasis voor onze skivakantie een week in januari en een week in februari.

Een maal met vrienden en een maal met zoon schoondochter en kleindochter.

Het is een heel mooi appartement boven aan het dorp met uit- en in ski op 25 meter afstand van de skilocker.

De beschrijving op de website van ligging toegang etc. is ruim voldoende en duidelijk.

Flat screen TV met alle Engels sprekende kanalen op de schotel. Snelle WIFI.

al met al zeer tevreden en voor herhaling vatbaar.

Wij bevelen dit appartement zeer aan.

Lovely spacious apartment close to the slopes

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in this La Tania apartment which was even better than advertised. We really appreciated all of the space and there was plenty of room for all our stuff!

The wifi was great and worked really well all of the time. It did get used a lot too!

We found the local manager and her staff very helpful, friendly and efficient. They let us enter early on the Sat am to leave our luggage and when we returned later the apartment was spotless.

The owner was really helpful throughout the booking process and very responsive at all times.

We hope to return again.

Fantastic apartment in La Tania

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here over New Year 2015/2016. The apartment is very well proportioned with a lovely double bedroom upstairs and a twin room downstairs. There is also a mezzanine with 2 smaller beds outside the upstairs bedroom. The lounge area is large and spacious and really nicely decorated. The kitchen is small and has most things you would want. The only thing it doesn't have is an oven (think the microwave might be a combi but it's not a 'proper' oven). There is a boot room and there is easy access to the slopes. Also a car park space which was much appreciated as it does get busy there. La Tania is a great great ski resort as it's small and car free with fabulous access to Courchevel and Meribel. Our children (8 - 12) love it here as they can sledge for hours in the centre safely after dark with all the other kids. We would love to stay in this fabulous apartment again when we come back to La Tania, which we hope will not be too long! Thanks also to Caroline for the great instructions and help from Extreme Ski Services who had left our ski passes at the apartment for us when we arrived. All in all a fabulous apartment and holiday (despite the lack of real, falling snow) and we can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: Really appreciate your review - thanks for taking the time. Note re microwave - yes it is a combi oven. We got the largest that we could fit in. We were in the apartment ourselves this week and used it a lot for grilling - making toast and cheese on toast - and it worked really well.

La Tania
Car: not necessary

La Tania is the newest of the Three Valley resorts - a pretty traffic free village nestling in the trees between Courchevel and Meribel with very easy access to the whole Three Valleys areas from it's 12 person high-speed gondola lift, which brings you up to the 'Col de la Loze' above Courchevel 1850. Created originally for the 1992 Albertville Olympic Games and developed since then, the resort is a lower-priced alternative to the neighbouring resorts of Meribel and Courchevel but shares the same slopes with quick access to either area. Accommodation is primarily in several tasteful apartment residences all offering on-piste location.

The pistes returning to La Tania meander through the heart of the forest with both blue and red north facing runs giving excellent snow conditions from the start to the end of the season. For added security, the Folyeres blue piste is protected with snow canons so you can be sure you can ski home, even when snow is in short supply elsewhere. For beginners, La Tania has it's own nursery slope in the village where the ski school is also located so the resort is good for families and mixed ability groups. The ski schools are of a very good standard with both ESF and Magic Ski Academy offering limited group sizes and quality teaching.

The bars and restaurants in the village all face south, making ideal lunchtime venues not forgetting the charming mountain restaurant 'Bouc Blanc' located at the top of the La Tania bubble. From an apres-ski point of view, the popular English run 'Ski Lodge' is a lively venue with theme and event nights throughout the season for celebrations such as New Year and St Patrick's Day as well as the famous La Tania Charity Day which takes place at the end of the season. For those looking for gastronomic excellence, 'Le Farcon' restaurant was awarded a Michelin star in 2006 and is an excellent place to eat or for traditional local food, you can't beat 'La Ferme' or the 'Marmotton'. The 'Taiga' is another popular bars/restaurant in the resort with a recently renovated cocktail bar or there's the piano bar at the 'Hotel Montana' and the 'Chrome Bar'.
