TRAIN TO LA TANIA
Eurostar's ski train to the French Alps
This winter, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Travelski, who’ll be offering direct trains to the Alps as part of a package. Find out more here.
You can also hit the slopes by taking the Eurostar to Paris, then hopping on a TGV train to Moûtiers and Bourg-Saint-Maurice. You will be able to book tickets for the whole journey through our website from autumn.
And you won’t need to worry about missing your connection in Paris. Because Eurostar is a member of Railteam, your ticket will allow you to jump on the next available train in Paris if you’re delayed or your train is cancelled.
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.
