TRAIN TO LA TANIA

La Tania may be smaller and less famous than its Trois Vallées neighbours, but this compact, friendly resort has a loyal following and is well positioned within this huge ski area.

If you are looking for an easygoing, good-value base with access to great skiing, La Tania is a good choice.

Although it is purpose built, the tasteful style of the wood-clad buildings and its position nestled in tree-lined scenery gives it attractive aesthetics, with long woodland runs and simple access to the slopes of neighbouring Courchevel and Meribel.

The convenience of the small, traffic-free village makes it advantageous for families, in particular.

    • La Tania Village

      La Tania's village is an attractive place to stay. It's car free, relatively compact and much of the accommodation has ski-in/ski-out access to the slopes.

    • The slopes in la Tania

      Simply being in the 600km Trois Vallées ski area means that no skier – whatever level – could ever complain about having too little terrain to explore.

    • La Tania for families

      La Tania's popularity with families is due in part to the predominance of ski-in/ski-out accommodation – as well as the excellent beginner slopes here.

    • Things to do in La Tania

      There's plenty on offer here, with breathtaking paragliding rides, two toboggan runs and the opportunity to try riding powerful piste groomers on a circuit with bumps and steep gradients.

    • Eating out in La Tania

      For an affordable meal above the village, the wood-clad Bouc Blanc has a large sun terrace and a good-value plat du jour, and is accessible by the La Tania gondola, so non-skiers can join in too.

    • La Tania nightlife

      La Tania has a handful of bars, all of which draw crowds of Brits eager for a drink after the slopes or after dinner. Pub Le Ski Lodge has happy hours and live music, as does Le Chrome Bar.

    • Where to stay in La Tania

      One of the advantages of staying in La Tania is the high proportion of accommodation with doorstep or close access to the slopes.
