La Tania is part of the Three Valleys, one of the most extensive linked ski areas in the world. This area encompasses Val Thorens, Les Menuires, Meribel, La Tania and Courchevel. The skiable area rises to 3200 meters and has a staggering 600 kilometres of piste. La Tania itself is a small, pedestrian friendly village with a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants - and the centre is totally car free. It has superb access to the whole Three Valleys ski area thanks to the telecabine that runs from the village.
Our catered chalet Le Vallon Blanc nestles in the pine trees above the village with a large sun terrace to enjoy the beautiful views and sunshine. It sleeps 10 in 5 en-suite bedrooms and is a genuine two minutes from the slopes and a short walk from the village centre. It also boasts a sauna, media room, free WiFi and UK Freeview TV.
Skiing in La Tania
The Three Valleys is arguably one of the biggest and best ski resorts in the world. With a top altitude of 3200 meters and a staggering 600 kilometres of piste it really does have something for every level of skier. The skiing ranges from wide, flattering motorway runs to over 30 black runs. The off-piste skiing on Mont Vallon is rated as some of the best in the Alps.
Beginners are well catered for in La Tania as they are able to make use of the free drag lift on La Tania’s nursery slopes. Once they have found their ski legs they are able to venture to the long green and blues above the resort. For intermediates there are plenty of great red runs from the top of Saulire and for experts there are plenty of black runs, steep descents, moguls and couloirs to choose from.
You are able to ski back to La Tania through the trees on either the red run , blue “Les Flolyeres “ run or the green “Plan Fontaine “ run which takes you towards our Chalet Vallon Blanc.
There are several bars, cafes and restaurants to choose from in La Tania, ranging from the excellent Michelin starred ‘Le Farcon’ to the lively Ski Lodge which has its popular happy hour and good value food. These are just two examples and there is a good cross section of lively après ski bars offering live music and a vibrant nightlife.

Chambery, Geneva, Grenoble and Lyon airports are all within easy reach of our resorts. All airports offer great routes from a host of airlines, with British Airways, Easyjet, Swiss, Jet2 and Ryanair among those. Journeys from Chambery will take around 1.5 hours, while the remaining three each take around 2.5 hours; this is only an average guide and times could be more during the peak seasons.
Onward Travel from the Airports
We do provide transfer services to our chalets. While for our catered chalets this is a complimentary service, we also offer transfers to our self-catered apartments at fantastic prices.
Hiring a car is a popular method of reaching your ski chalet, offering great flexibility and the opportunity for your party to travel in your own time. If you are landing at Geneva airport, we recommend arranging your car hire on the Swiss side so that you avoid having to but a motorway pass. Also, cars in Switzerland are required by law to be fitted with snow tyres and are also likely to come fitted with snow chains.
If you are arranging your car hire on the French side, make sure you have pre-booked snow chains as it is against the law to drive on the Alps without them between December and April. If you don’t have any fitted, it could result in a fine and you may be denied access to the mountain
