La Tania is a family-friendly resort in the Courchevel area of the 3 Valleys. The village itself sits at 1400m among truly awe-inspiring scenery - yet just 25 minutes' drive from Moûtiers.
Originally a small hamlet mid-way between Méribel and Courchevel, La Tania nestles in the heart of a fabulous spruce forest and has been caringly designed with an emphasis on wood and traditional materials. La Tania is the youngest resort in the 3 Valleys – it’s entirely pedestrianised with parking located on the outskirts.
La Tania was developed for the 1992 Albertville Olympics by the same award-winning team of architects responsible for Avoriaz, who were once again determined to respect the natural beauty of the exceptional setting. Recent years have seen the six original timber-clad apartment blocks in La Tania’s traffic-free heart joined by smaller chalet-style developments, but the village retains its compact and cosy feel, and is largely hidden from the outside world by its peaceful, woodland setting.
Although it may not quite demonstrate the kind of Alpine touch you might find in other resorts, it is after all a relatively new ski resort (built in 1991) so it inevitably lacks the history and style of older Alpine villages.
Designed with skiing in mind, this purpose-built resort has a rather modern touch to it, as opposed to “rustic alpine”. It’s very practical for skiing - much of the accommodation is ski-in, ski-out, and centred around the Front de Neige.
The development of tourism in La Tania has been carried out in accordance with the environmental protection requirements constituting the most wooded area of the 3 Valleys. La Tania also has the Green Resort Award.
