Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This unique two bedroom property within La Tania was used as a family home until Spring 2011. If looking for a fantastic family apartment or spacious four person accommodation then look no further. The double bed-settee in the lounge also allows for a further two people to be accommodated with ease.
Situated on the second floor of the Residences des Folyeres, this recently refurbished, two bedroom apartment commands fantastic views over the centre of town and the Troika ski run. It's position above the Tourist Office means that all of La Tania's amenities are no more than a minute away. The supermarket is right outside, as too is the bakery and you can quite literally put your skis on at the front door for almost the whole season. Towels and linen are included as are Freesat TV and free wifi.
The apartment has two bedrooms (one double and one large bunk room), a bathroom, separate toilet, a large kitchen (with full-size oven, ceramic hob and dishwasher), together with a spacious lounge area. There is also a separate ski locker on the ground floor.
As Residences des Folyeres is south facing, the balcony catches the sun throughout the whole day keeping the lounge and kitchen area light and airy.

The Rhone/French Alps region
The linked ski area of the Courchevel valley is 1,304 acres of mountain entirely dedicated to all types of winter sports. Ski down the 150 kilometres of downhill pistes, served by 62 chairlifts, to get the most out of your day’s skiing. If you’re a beginner, the “ZEN” and fun zones are for you, with 27 green runs and 44 blue runs to get you skiing in perfect safety. For hardened skiers, 38 red runs and 10 black runs will test your technique and ability to the full! Whatever your level, choose your itinerary for some unforgettable days' skiing.
The resorts of Courchevel 1550, 1650, 1850, Le Praz and La Tania are linked to the largest linked ski area in the world: the Trois Vallées, with 600 kilometres of prepared and maintained pistes. The magnificent scenery stretches from the Mont Blanc massif in the north to the Les Ecrins massif in the south. After a few hours on your skis and you'll reach the summit of the the Trois Vallées massif, the Pointe de Thorens (3266 m) at Val Thorens.
La Tania lies at a height of 1400m and was officially opened on 22nd December 1990 on the back of the 1992 Winter Olympics. It was used to house the ice hockey players and journalists but now La Tania has grown into a resort in its own right.
The village is pedestrianised and is therefore great for children. There're all the facilities required from ski hire shops to restaurants and bars. There is live music most nights somewhere in the resort along with aprés-ski happy hours and theme night parties taking place throughout the ski season.
