A region of such contrasts also provides many gastronomic delights from a wide range of local wines to cheeses like Beaufortain that are actually made in the high mountain pastures during the warm summer months. Within the Savoie is an area known as the Tarentaise, which is essentially a vast area carved out by huge glaciers, it brings to mind the Winter Olympics and famous ski resorts such as Courchevel, Meribel, Tignes, Val d'Isere and La Plagne.
But don't be deceived it is also well worth a visit for its Baroque chapels, picturesque hamlets with colonnaded houses and the wide-open spaces of the Parc National de la Vanoise. The diversity of the flora and fauna in this area is well-known and attracts nature lovers as well as snow sport fans! But for most people this is home to some of the most famous and the largest ski areas and ski resorts in the world.

A beautiful place all year with highly defined seasons and quiet and tranquil out of the ski season when the crowds have gone home, and then suddenly once again each winter the mountains of the Three Valleys come alive with people enjoying this vast ski area..... the largest linked skiing in the world.
The Three Valleys ski domain provides more than 600km of runs and probably the same again off-piste. In fact it should now be called the Four Valleys with the link into Orelle (Maurianne Valley) which can be accessed by ski from Val Thorens. This has also opened up some extraordinary off-piste runs. The Three Valleys provides direct links between the ski resorts of St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Meribel, Mottaret, La Tania, Brides les Bains and the four Courchevel resorts, la Praz, 1550, 1650 and the world famous 1850 (probably the most expensive ski resort in the world!)

It has an ultra efficient, state of the art ski lift system, quality piste preparation and a dense artificial snow making system (1920 snow cannons) complementing the excellent natural snow cover. However, if you are not a fan of downhill skiing or like some variety during your stay then you can also roam the domain at your leisure on foot, hiking along the marked trails, or using the pedestrian ski lift passes. Many trails have been created especially to enjoy the increasingly popular snowshoeing sport and to discover the valleys from a new perspective: flora, wildlife, monuments, and spectacular scenery. There are also many cross-country skiing tracks that are prepared and maintained each day. These allow you to take in the breathtaking scenery and provide the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the mountains away from the pastes.
The property in the Three Valleys is extremely varied from the uber luxury chalets of Courchevel 1850 with their own helipads and underground pools to the cramped ski apartments, designed to get you skiing as cheaply as possible. Then there are the village properties ranging from tiny mountain barns to renovate and mountain houses sandwiched together in untidy yet charming rows through to imposing buildings that may once have been a monastery or village hospital perhaps ' and then there's everything in between. An interesting and wonderful area all year round, there is much more here than the snow sports, and yet it is this that draws the crowds.
