Update On The New La Tania Car Park – What We Know?
Information on what we know about the new Parking Combou area in La Tania. As usual this is all subject to change as plans often completely change (or get cancelled) without any consultation and finding out solid information is very difficult.
Note that Parking du Tal is the parking area up the hill from Le Praz next to the horse riding stables. This will be chargeable for Winter 2024 (to encourage parking in the Alpinium no doubt).
The new Parking Combou in La Tana replaces Parking du Saz near to the gondola station where the new Moretta Village development is under construction. An underground car park with 100 spaces will eventually be available under the Moretta Village (for a fee).
Situated at the entrance to the village when coming up from Le Praz it was built using the earth from the Alpinium development in Le Praz.
Work is still to be completed for the additional facilities that are to be provided but the main car parking area will be open for Winter 2024.
The car park will be free for Winter 2024 (now confirmed from Police Municipale) but we expect it to be chargeable for Winter 2025 when all facilities are completed. This is not confirmed though. The Police say coaches will be charged at €40 per day.
- Cost is €1.7m
- 8 places for coaches
- 8-10 campervan places
- Remaining spaces for cars
- Toilet and Shower facilities
- Waste and Recycling Bins
- Rest area / coffee facilities for coach drivers
- Charging point for Electric Vehicles
- New footpath to the gondola (a new path is in place from there to the resort)
- No shuttle bus from the car park
This season there will be 8-10 free campervan places reserved for Seasonaires on a first come – first served basis (contract of employment will most likely be needed). You can email the Police Municipal now to reserve on email@example.com
So no spaces for public campers this Winter (unless a Seasonaire leaves perhaps).
There are also plans to eventually have a two storey car park on the parking near La Taiga with some Seasonaire accommodation and possibly shops/commerce buildings on top.
The temporary access road to the chalets will be the only way up there this season. The authorities are well aware of how difficult / dangerous this could be during heavy snowfall and say it will be prioritised for snow clearing operations.
Many thanks to the efforts of the local businesses for managing to gather this information and for the photos too. Not sure why this information is not made publicly available anywhere.
