Summer Shuttle Bus Service 2016
The free Summer shuttle bus is now confirmed for Summer - timetable here. The service runs from Bozel, 3 times a day up to Saint-Bon, then approx every half hour from Saint-Bon up to 1850 (nearest stop is Le Praz for La Tania - take the footpath down in the Summer!) and it of course now stops at Aquamotion between 1550 Courchevel Village and 1650 Courchevel Moriond.
There is also a Brides les Bains to Courchevel bus. Useful for the bikers heading down the valley - note this is Sunday Only from 10 July to 21 August. Leaves Brides at 09:30, 10:50, 14:00 and 16:30).

La Perrière and Saint-Bon merge in to "Courchevel"
It may have been an April Fool by us a few years ago saying La Tania was being renamed Courchevel but it is getting nearer (sort of)...
The two local councils (La Tania belongs to La Perrière) have approved the merger and will make a final decision on the naming of the towns before the 30 September 2016 with the new towns coming in to effect on 1st January 2017.
As we understand it these are likely to be La Perrière commune de Courchevel, Saint-Bon commune de Courchevel and La Tania commune de Courchevel. We can't see the name La Tania disappearing anytime soon - the 1550 and 1650 designations are still widely in use for Courchevel Village and Moriond.
Financially these changes do make sense so hopefully a new lift or escalator/walk way up the chalets area can be financed and the main centre of La Tania & the arrival area at The Montana can be all refurbed now.
The further benefits of one commune and joint publicity, tourist info, major developments, ski area improvements and belonging to "Courchevel" one of the premier ski resort names in the world are all fairly obvious too. Inter-village transport links should improve too and maybe La Tania will have full free bus links at the beginning and end of the ski season and through the Summer too.
Of course no one with lose their job and there will just be additional bureaucracy available and two town halls etc etc. Further information in the Mairie Newsletter
Euro 2016 France
Full coverage of England's tournament hopes once again as we revived the England Tournament Blog from Brazil as La Tania Does Football once again... More to come on the inquest soon with more of the highlights as another dismal tournament (well the football bit) ends for us. Great trips, memories and catching up with friends across France following England's 4 games. Could be an end of an era though with Russia & Qatar looming & next Euros all over the place, it's certainly been a trip since Italia '90...
