10 Aug 10 reasons to choose La Tania for your next ski holiday
La Tania is the home of good value Three Valleys skiing. Here’s why…
1) Sitting pretty: Built in the early 1990s for the Albertville Olympics, it’s low rise and is scattered with chocolate box chalets (of which Alpine Escape’s are the cream of the crop, of course!)
2) Doorstep skiing: You can ski right into the centre of the village, which means that the lifts are practically on the doorstep of most of the accommodation. For our chalets which are a short stroll away from the snow, we’ll happily drop you to the lifts and pick you up again at the end of the day. Just say the word!
3) Happy families: The car-free village means that children can run around and play safely in the snow while the grown-ups have a civilised drink on a sunny terrace. There are good options for ski schools with English-speaking instructors, and the easy runs back into resort are great for young skiers. We can help organise your family holiday, just click here.
4) Beginner bliss: With a free nursery slope and well-maintained green and blue runs into the village, the resort is great for beginners finding their ski legs. Click here for more details.
5) Access all areas: Intermediates and experts will never be bored with 600km of pistes accessible on a Three Valleys pass. Even with a Courchevel valley pass, there’s absolutely loads of skiing available. The lifts are fast and efficient, meaning more ski-hours per euro than many of the other big-name resorts.
6) Apres-ski: if drinking champagne and dancing on tables is your thing, then with a Three Valleys pass you have several places to party. La Tania itself, although small, has several options for those who like a drink after skiing. Click here for the lowdown.
7) Great value: You can get reasonably priced pizzas, crepes or pub grub in La Tania’s village restaurants. Drinks prices are at their lowest in the resort bars and even the Michelin-star restaurant offers a good value lunch menu.
8) Fancy feasts: Yup, we have a Michelin-star restaurant! Le Farcon is a smart but friendly place to have a slap up meal on your chalet night off, or pop in for their set lunch menu. Click here for our restaurant recommendations.
9) Awesome off piste: Locals skiers stay close to home on a powder day. There’s steep off-piste accessible around the Dou des Lanches area, and in snowy weather, the tree skiing is unrivalled.
10) The experts over at welove2ski.com agree with us: “A collection of attractive Scandinavian-style chalets set in the woods above the village adds to the cosy mountain ambience. The cost of lunch or dinner here is lower than anywhere else in the Trois Vallees.”
