A holiday to the French Alps is full of opportunities. There is the promise of snow peaked mountains, ski fun, gourmet cuisine and plenty of winter activities to keep you busy. There are also any number of relaxing and rejuvenating therapies and treatments available to you. If you’re not a big fan of skiing, there are plenty of other activities you can take part in when you’re staying in La Tania. Ski resort choices are plentiful and there is certainly no chance of being bored – unless you want to be of course!
What to see and do
The Pedestrian Lift Pass gets you to Courchevel 1850 and Meribel Centre via a series of cable cars, but don’t discount the myriad pleasure of walking too. Visit the market (open twice a week) where you can get great local cheeses and meats, amongst many other delights. You will find many small and eclectic shops in Courchevel 1850 and, although slightly expensive, they are worth a look for souvenirs. The Pedestrian Pass gives you the chance to explore the towns of the region and perhaps meet up with new friends for a meal with a perfect view.
Another popular thing to experience is paragliding in La Tania. Ski resort information desks can guide you to where you can make bookings for this exciting experience. You don’t need to have any previous experience, as licensed pilots will keep you safe while you are up in the sky. Come and indulge in man’s greatest dream, to fly! You can admire the most beautiful sights up where the only noise is the breeze.
Skiing is, of course, one of the biggest reasons people visit La Tania. Ski resort guides will assist you to find the most suitable ski slope for your level of experience. The resort has its own nursery slope, which is perfect for beginners. It is situated very near to the ski school where you might want to enrol if you need some classes.
Après ski fun
For those looking for some après-ski entertainment, there are many popular bars and pubs in the area, which have themes and event nights throughout the season and during celebrations like St. Patrick’s Day and New Year’s Eve. At the end of every season, one can enjoy the famous Charity Day. Many of the restaurants in this area have been awarded stars for their famous traditional cuisine and you could have every meal in a different restaurant and still have some left over before you leave!
Fun for the children
If you have children travelling with you, the entire family can enjoy a night sledging on the floodlit Troika run, in the centre of the resort. You can rent sledges and bum boards from the ski shops and have a fantastic time on the slopes around La Tania. Ski resort fun was never so good as in this delightful French Alps destination.
