Review: Big group of us staying in this hotel, the package with flight & transfers made it easy to sort out although we probably could have gone DIY and sorted out something cheaper - but would it have been as good? Food was decent with plenty of choices and good helpings, perfect position just a 2 minute walk to the lift (and not up hill!). Rooms had been refurbed recently and were comfortable, warm with balcony with a great view. Easy access to piste and boot room, pool table and video machines for the kids and a nice bar area upstairs for the Adults. Would certainly go back id price is right. La Tania is a great place, very friendly and great place for first time skiers. Bus service to the other Courchevel Villages is worth using too.

Review: Another great week in La Tania. The snow was still in lovely condition and we particularly appreciated the condition of the Folyeres run back to the village at the end of the day. We were totally spoiled in Chalet Pascal ? Becky and Rob served up fabulous dinners each night and always went the extra distance to ensure that we were really comfortable and happy. We particularly appreciated the yummy cakes after long days skiing, the ski guiding, fantastic boot warmers, endless hot water, easy access to the slopes (not quite ski in ski out ? but 2 minutes walk) and just the easy friendliness of our hosts which made for a most convivial week. Thank you!

Review: This is now our 3rd time here in La Tania and it gets better every time with out fail. We love this place loads and will be back time and time again. We always at the moment drive down and rent a self catering apartment in Saboia. We do like it in here because of the great views it gives however there are a few too many steps to get to the top after a few beers, but that will not put you off too much. We always drink in the Pub Ski Lodge of course this is the best bar here and they do great food too. Happy hour every day 4pm to 6pm the drinks are even cheaper so get them in. We go out and eat in La Taiga restaurant here they do great food, make sure you book, Wednesdays are busy. The snow was amazing, I have never seen so much snow. It just did not stop at all. It took me two hours to dig out my car. For more information or you want to ask me something please feel free to find me on Twitter @scottjanaway here you will see many pictures and videos, you can also ask me anything about the trip to La Tania as I would be happy to help and recommend this great place for a ski holiday.

Review: Large double Chalet on long lease to Ski Magic who are well established (18 years) in La Tania. Ski Magic owners Gordon and Jane Wilcocks are both BASI qualified Ski instructors and aim to provide comfortable, affordable chalets. Pickup/transfer okay from Moutiers hire skis, lift passes all ready plus rooms were available so able to check and get on slopes by 10am on first day. Chalet is basic but has everything you need, 4 double rooms (two singles) all en suite and reasonable size with balconies. Plenty of piping hot water for the bath or shower. Boot room with heated storage. Food okay especially given that our hosts (Callum and Jade) were last minute replacements for two chalet girls who left the week before. Wifi in Chalet not great but able to use Wifi from Chalet Noella nearby. Communal kitchen, dining and lounge area with a small TV/DVD player, wood burner all functional rather than cosy. You can walk down the road and walk to the Public lift to La Tania centre or with ski boots on walk up to the Telemark Hotel and walk down join the piste and ski down - roughly the same 200m distance. Hotel Telemark offers great food for the Chalet Staff Night off.

Review: Did not stay here but we tried the Telemark as it was conveniently located for our Chalet Staff night off. I must admit we were a bit doubtful but had the 25 plat du jour of baked camembert, lamb cutlets on mustard mash with heritage vegetables and a deconstructed Eton mess with as much house wine as you wanted what a fantastic meal! So we ended up dining there twice more the second time having Beef Bourguignon on the bone and the last Belly of Pork. I should also add that the Manager allowed us to use a room to shower in on our last night totally free of charge even though we were not Hotel guests priceless. Thanks to Violet, Luke and the rest if the staff for looking after us.

Stayed there in Dec 2014

Review: We stopped with Sue & Pete in Chalet Chocolat from the 12th to 27th of December this year. Despite the limited runs due to lack of snow we made the most of our 3 vallees passses and had a good first week with many long days skiing. Conditions and number of runs improved over the second week with the Becca and Masse in Menuires being our favourites. The 3 vallees worked hard to open links and managed to open the gondola in La Tania for quicker access to skiing. On the final weekend it snowed, a lot! We had a great final day skiing the Folyeres and Morretta in deep, fresh snow. It was our first time with Ski Magic and our hosts made us very welcome. Food and accomodation was excellent we could not have asked for more, or indeed eaten anymore! Looking forward to staying with Ski Magic in La Tania again.

Review: Well, what can I say? Six of us (3 x couples) had such a fab time in January 14 in La Tania at the Telemark Hotel that most of us went back again in March! Both times stayed at the Telemark Hotel and I really don't want to tell you all how excellent everything was because today I have just tried to book for 12 of us to go again in January 15 and the hotel is already booked up! (We have managed to secure one of their chalets though, phew!) The team at the hotel could not do enough for us, it also seemed like on both occasions they even ordered us the best snow conditions for us too! Food plentiful and delicious, rooms comfortable, location brilliant, staff ALL wonderful. From being collected at the airport and dropped off a week later nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, all very helpful, it was like staying with a big group of friends. The hotel sorted out our lift pass, transfers, ski hire, accommodation (and wine)so we knew exactly what the holiday was going to cost and all the organizing was done for us... (thank you, Julie!) Really welcoming place and I can't pick any faults. La Tania is a great place with ski in and out even for first time skiers. Great bands at the SkiLodge most nights with fabulous atmosphere. Chrome Bar great place to sit and catch the sun. Good prices for drink and food in the village considering you are actually on the slopes. A Courchevel lift pass gets you enough skiing over a massive area for a week unless you are super-skier. Everyone is super friendly and we can't wait to come again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks everyone in La Tania for making both our holidays brilliant! See you in 2015... (twice I hope)

Accommodation Name: Chalet Jonquille
Holiday Company: Ski Power
Stayed there in Dec 2013

Review: Wheels spinning frantically as I reverse up to Chalet Jonquille to offload the car and family, you can't get any closer, unless your in the hot tub. This is a wonderful chalet operated by Ski Power, right opposite a 30 metre walk to the lift that takes you down to the town centre and the short ski run to the main bubble lift. Most of the town amenities are located here, so no reason to walk or ski very far for a beer or two. The local eateries offer excellent value for money with a good choice, especially the Pub Le Ski Lodge. Probably the best blue run in the whole 3 valley's ski area, the Folyeres piste delivers you almost to the door of the pub and the happy aprs ski going on in there, always a welcome sign. The local hire shops are all located in the main area of the town; they offer a very friendly and knowledgeable service with good prices so no fear of being ripped off. Theres nothing I can add to skiing, its as good as it gets in an area of this size but La Tania is a gem of a place. Its easy to see why people come back, great memories (despite the hangover) indeed. On on.

Stayed there in Jan 2013

Review: We had a brilliant stay at Chalet Juba over New Year 2012. A group of us took over the entire chalet for our 9th stay with Nick and Joey and all felt that we were looked after even better than ever. Nick made a supreme effort on New Year's Eve - 5 courses of dinner plus champagne at midnight and we had a brilliant evening. The chalet is always spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming and the ability to ski in ski out makes it a perfect choice - hence why we keep on going back. The snow conditions too were perfect. Plenty of snow before our arrival and then a few inches top up during the week meant that the pistes were wonderful. Nick and Joey are also mindful of getting you up in time for breakfast and then hitting first lift so that we were able to get first tracks down Lac Bleu most of the days of our holiday - a fabulous feeling! All in all if you like seriously good food, wine and skiing then Chalet Juba is the place to stay!

The food, cakes and hospitality offered by Alex and Rachael, our chalet hosts, were absolutely outstanding. The kids were in ski lessons in the morning and the Polar Bear Club in the afternoon. The whole set up was seamless and the kids ( ranging from 3 to 5 years old) all had a brilliant time with the excellent nannies.

Review: We have just returned from a family holiday in La Tania, staying in Chalet Juba with NICKSKI. What a fantastic time we had! It is a great place for anyone, be they a group of adults or a family with teenagers like us. The communuication with Nick before our arrival was great. The support and advice started the moment I booked, which gave me a good feeling about the forthcoming trip. I was not disappointed. After an overnight trip on Eurostar we were able to leave our bags in the chalet boot room and take ourselves off to the slopes until the chalet was ready. The chalet itself is very clean and tidy. It is warmed by the lovely log burner, which was welcome after -17 degrees on the slopes. The beds are comfy and there is always hot water. Joey and Nick are excellent hosts. Rather than having booked a holiday in their chalet it felt like thay had invited us to stay with them in their home. The food was great. Joey obviously enjoys cooking and provided tasty and plentiful home cooked dishes. Joey catered for us vegetarians very well too, appearing to enjoy the chance to try out different ideas and dishes. The puddings need a special mention. Particularly the tarte tatin and the apple crumble with creme ecosse!!! Each night offers a different choice of wine. All of which were excellent. The chalet is situated away from the main centre of La Tania and it is possible to ski back. Nick and Joey are obviously passionate about skiing and really want you to make the best of the fantastic skiing available. Advice is always on hand and Nick's ski tours were very enjoyable. Overall I would not wish for anything else. I think we have found our ski home and look forward to visiting again and again.

Review: We have just returned from an outstanding trip to La Tania which was certainly made special by our hosts, Nick and Joey. The accommodation was warm and welcoming, with a beautiful log burner to take the chill off the cold of the slopes. Joey and Nick prepared fantastic three course meals for us in the evenings, as well as a full and tasty breakfast. In addition, the afternoon tea and cakes was just what we needed after a day on the slopes! Both hosts are clearly passionate about La Tania and the skiing experience that is available and they do their utmost to make your stay as full and enjoyable as possible. Nick will take guests out for an exciting day of skiing where he tours the area. La Tania itself is a beautiful location, with tree-lined pistes and a relaxed centre. In addition, you can take the lifts to Courcheval, Meribel and Val Thorens, making La Tania the ideal base for your skiing holiday. I will definitely return to Chalaet Juba if the opportunity arises.

Review: Our period of stay was from 24th December until 7th January. Our experience of the company (TheThreeValleys.com) headed up by David, the staff (Manuel, Ed, Brad, Rob and Connor) headed up by Tina (head chef and team leader) was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, the food was fabulous, wine equally good. I should mention Gordon who is David's partner based on-site and although you don't see him much he does run things locally and keeps transfers on time etc. The chalet was clean, spacious, well kept and homely, especially warm. One small point is the sound insulation between the two chalets (Felicie/Philippine). We stayed in Philippine and for some of our stay we had a fairly noisy family next door. That said Tina stepped in and managed to quiet down their somewhat unruly children (music at 11pm etc). I'd highly recommend staying at this chalet or one of the other two, or even the hotel (Chalet Hotel) this season as the staff are fantastic and will really make your stay enjoyable. Guys - Thank you for a great time. Well done :-) Tony, Carol, Keith, Kerry, Alex & The Whittingham Massive. PS: From a resort point of view: Pub Le Ski - Brilliant! Le Taiga - Even better, food absolutely awesome, service superb. Hotel Telemark - service can be troublesome, especially on the more involved menu items. Maybe avoid until later in the season - all staff are new so taking a while to bed in. Sports 2000 - Bruno and the crew: fantastic, great knowledge, fantastic sense of humour and always willing to help. The resort in general - can't really get much better!

Review: Got back last weekend from an excellent week care of Ski Power and Chalet Topaz. We were a group of 11 girls and had sole occupancy. Meg and James were just the best - with the competent support of Debs, the resort manager.They tended to our every need and nothing was too much bother. The food was delicious and plentiful and the cheese board amazing. Great location too. Our only gripe was that Ski Power (not Meg and James) chose this season to exclude a 'hot option' at breakfast and replace it with a Full English offering as an extra. We felt this was big mistake, and bumping into other Ski Power guests they did too. We didn't want 'full English' just one 'hot option'.. a boiled or poached egg or even a bowl of porridge would suffice. Also, offering a full continental breakfast with slices of cheese and ham costs a hell of a lot more than an egg!!! It also made some of group feel that Ski Power were just trying to make an extra buck! I really really do hope they reconsider this for next year. Pip back at UK HQ bent over backwards to accomodate our group and did everything she could do help facilitate a smooth and successful trip. The ski hosting was also a wonderful - our group really appreciated both hosts who were very sensitive to the level of skiers they took out. The chalet itself was ideal for our group. The sitting area was cosy around the fire, and the hot tub was an absolute necessity at the end of the day :). NB Ski Power HQ - you need to buy a metal shovel to remove the ice from the steps up to the chalet.. the plastic ones just don't cut it!

Review: Super holiday staying at Le Christiana with Peak Retreats. Apartment was great for 2 adults 2 children, nicely fitted out and very central. If the snow had been good at resort level it would have been about 10 steps from the piste to our ski-lockers. Unfortunately the snow wasn't good (April 2011) and lots of runs closed so will have to visit again to ski in better conditions, but we did enjoy sitting on the balcony in the evening sun. We were self-catering and found the supermarket well stocked, also used a couple of take-aways. Overall we had a great holiday - would recommend Peak Retreats as everything booked through them worked out very well. La Tania is a lovely little resort and we look forward to our next trip.

Review: Just back from LT & as usual, we loved it. It was a last minute booking with Ski Power and it was well discounted - but . . . We were offered a twin room with an extra bed in and were told that it would be "tight" but acceptable. Sadly the 3rd bed meant we couldnt open our clothes cupboards without major bed moving and the balcony wasnt therefore accessable. The curtains were constantly touching the condensated windows which meant they had got mouldy and though the chalet is comfortable, it is a little bit "tired". Also it would have been nice on arrival after alot of travelling to have maybe had some tea & cake available, plus the cosy log fire was never on due to no wood available (!?). Ross and Mary were great hosts, very helpful and great dinners, but talking to other guests in other Ski Power accom., the company does appear to have a high staff attrition rate which can speak volumes about a business.

Review: I stayed at Chalet Juba towards the end of Feb 2011. This is a half board type accommodation and is ideal for any stay in the Three Valleys. The accommodation is very clean and tidy, and totally set up for any ski holiday (heated boot/ski room, communal area and separate en-suite bedrooms). The food is cooked fresh daily by the Chalet owners (Nick and Joey) and is of excellent quality, especially the evening dinner/supper. Plus there is always a selection of wines included for you to sample with dinner/supper. The accommodation is based in La Tania. It is a short 20 metres walk to a gentle ski track that takes you down to the La Tania ski lift. The La Tania lift is an easy access to the rest of the lifts across the Three valleys. You can also ski back to the Chalet at the end of the day from the higher slopes and the run down is easy enough for any type of skier. The highlight of the week was the two guided tours (Tuesday and Friday) by the Chalet Owners. Nick & Joey have excellent knowledge of the area and can very quickly get you to the best slopes in the area (and you can be the first onto the slopes after they have been pisted the night before). Hope you also enjoy your time skiing in the 3 valleys.

As for the chalet itself -it is ski from the door even in the poor conditions, the bedrooms have plenty of space, the views are fab and the hot tub is a brilliant way to end the day. If that doesn't top it for you the food certainly will. Need to seriously diet this week though.

Despite the snow not being of the best Nick's encyclopaedic knowledge of the 3 valleys meant finding the best snow whether he was advising us or taking us out on his fantastic guided tours. However it was the hospitality that made the holiday for us. From Joey's excellent baking, particularly the flapjack, to the carefully chosen wines which complimented the delicious home cooked meals it was a delight to ski home to. The company and chat around the table combined with Nick and Joey's understated professionalism creates a chalet holiday that cannot be beaten. We will definitely be back. Thanks again

Review: I was pleased I had read reviews of the resort, company and chalet before we arrived - as it did prepare for some of the issues mentioned in other reviews. Thankfully we had good companions in the chalet and the excellent cooking and hosting skills of Alex and Jo - both experienced, calm and mature hosts which really made a difference. These elements, combined with good skiing made this an enjoyable first experience of catered chalets. However, buses from Grenoble were chaotic - maybe because it was the first weekend - but the bus was overcrowded with luggage in the aisles and information on arrangements all a bit sketchy - but as some previous reviews had commented on this, it wasn't a complete surprise to us. I was also glad I knew about the final walk up to Mongallez chalet from La Tania car park. Ski France seem to be about the only operator in La Tania that doesn't have courtesy buses for its guests - and it was a long walk at the end of a long day, but fortunately with not too much snow at that time - I couldn't imagine making that final leg of the journey with fresh snow or not knowing what to expect by way of the walk. I thought I had chosen carefully regarding proximity to the town and lifts, but the walk down and back each day was arduous to say the least. The website says town is a 10 min walk - which could only be achieved in trainers with no snow and no equipment - in ski boots with equipment it is a long 20 minute slog on steep roads. At least on one day we did get a lift down in a nice warm van - but not by our operator! The chalet was clean and spacious although I think a 4* rating is a bit optimistic - a good 3* yes. Despite web descriptions there were no newspapers or hair dryers provided but the sauna was a good thing at the end of each day. Ski and boot hire from Ski Higher was first class as were lessons from Ski Magic. All in all, a good first experience, really grateful for having a nice group of people and experienced hosts. La Tania suited us fine with plenty of skiing for our level - but I would definitely look for accommodation closer to town or an operator with its own transport. Taking everything into account 8/10 and plan to visit La Tania again next time.

Review: My 11 yr son and I stayed here during half term. I picked this hotel on price as I got a good H/B deal with Ski France. We were not disappointed. We chose for the superior room, which by previous French ski resort standards was huge. The room had plenty of storage space, TV, decent view. The rooms were kep clean and towels changed as required. Though, we both dodged using the bath/shower. More on that later. The food in the restaurant was OK. Some meals were better than others, for example one evening the beef steak was a bit tough, but next evening the Duck was one of the nicest I've ever eaten. It was always edible, and what I expected for a 3 star hotel. At lunchtime we also took advantage of the 15 Euro fixed menu deal, again the food was fine. The skiing was fantastic. As this was my 11 yr old's first skiiing adventure, we both went with the ESF ski school. I'd read and heard various comments about ESF, but we both found the ski instructors to be good fun and good coaches. Many thanks to Michel and YoYo. After skiing we would spend 1-2hours in the Spa, making full use of the pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. A great way to stretch and relax those tired muscles. Hence not having to use the room shower for a week. One thing that was a bit odd, pretty much all the staff were British. So it was a bit confusing not having to speak pidgeon french. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

So disappointed that a lovely chalet could be ruined by such a bad experience of Ski Power's so called 'Premier Service'. Complete waste of money to pay extra for this. No sign of a resort rep or any way to contact anyone from Ski Power.

The only niggle was, of course, the price of eating out (?5 for a very small portion of fries at restaurant at Verdons station!), but we managed to shop at the Sherpa in La Tania which was well stocked and better value!)and ate in the apartment most of the time and because of the great snow we could ski back for lunch and off again for the afternoon over to Courchevel!!!

Review: Resort: Absolutely fabulous, snow was amazing, runs fantastic, apres ski though not extensive was good and very friendly bars plus extremely hospitable staff. Chalet Staff: Could not have been better, the food was fantastic, and service was great. We were looked after by a young couple and an even younger student ? professional, friendly and efficient. Chalet: Quite good and comfortable and clean but not as cracked up to be on the Les Ski website. I was expecting something far better for the price we paid - the full price of over ?700. Ski Company: Appalling. They made a problem in booking and were going to cancel our booking if we didn't pay early (pre July)- saying that how would another customer feel if they found out we had paid slightly less but paid after the early booking date - well, we were the only people (five) who had paid the full price, Les Ski slashed their prices wholesale in the lead up to our holiday and we felt extremely ripped off sat round a table of about 20 people were everyone without exception had paid less than 50% of what we had paid. We then asked if a friend could stay for dinner as it was my birthday, no problem, but it cost me ?140!! one three course dinner for over a ?100, when they had enough food anyway. ?30 Euros went to the chalet team which I didn't mind as they deserved it and they made my birthday very special - but the management team were having an absolute laugh. I spoke to the main director and I found his attitude utterly arrogant and in total contempt of his customers. Never, never again will I book with Les Ski and I've also ensured my friends won't either. On a brighter note though, we are booked into La Tania (different chalet and company) for Xmas this year and really looking forward to being in a fabulous and friendly resort again :-)

Review: We stayed at Chalet Opal 1 and 2 over New Year 2008-2009. A group of 5 families, 20 in total split across the 2 chalets. The chalets were very comfortable and hosts Andy & G were excellent. Congrats Andy on putting up with the 10 children for dinner each night ;-). Good location, short walk down the road to put skis on then short ski down the end of the run to the gondola. Good snow on piste in general, we love La Tania as this was our second stay. Only downside is standing at the bottom of the steps up to the chalet at the end of a hard day, knowing they are 2 flights up, but the cake beckons! We're very grateful to hosts for letting us have use of a couple of rooms on the Sat for changing after skiing at the end of the week, as our flight did not leave until the evening. Hope we did not put off the incoming guests too much. I think these chalets used to be Cassy and Lucca, they are just up from Topaz.

Review: This is the third consecutive year we have been with Ski Dazzle and it has been amazingly good each time. My wife and I have been skiing in chalet accommodation for over 25 years now (we met in Zermatt) and we think that Ski Dazzle provides simply the best accommodation that you could hope for. The chalets are light and bright and the care taken with both the food and the accommodation is second to none. Christmas day was brilliant with little presents for all the guests and our daughter?s 21st birthday arrived with Bucks fizz in the morning, special birthday decorations and a cake in the afternoon. I should mention the food, which was terrific, David is a ?proper? chef and the food was very much under his control, even when he wasn?t cooking it. He and Sallyann run their three chalets with the kind of care that you would hope to find in a small chalet company, but very often don?t ? take it from someone with 25 years of chalet accommodation We were lucky with the snow (again) which meant that we could ski from the chalet down to the lift station in the morning and then come back down the red run in the evening almost into the back door. Will we be booking for next year? I think so. I know that there are a lot of other resorts out there and we have visited most of them in France, Austria, Switzerland and the USA, but the Three Valleys has an awful lot to offer and if you are going to go there, then why would you want to stay with anyone other than Ski Dazzle.

Chalet Chardon is a nice I guess mid-range chalet with the accomodation being perfectly fine. Went to Chrome Bar as apres-ski a few times, played the best background music and is right on the piste; not cheap but nice enough.

Review: Wayne, Luke, Hutch, Sumo, Joffan and Dames (Miggy, Gesina and Toya): We sent the girls in first to check out the resort ! They came back with top reviews for the skiing (the important bit) and some well selected restaurant ideas. Despite problems with planes (too much snow) they still managed a full weekends skiing so the boys arrived a few weeks later... Transfer was quick and easy in the minibus; helped by alcohol consumption. Ski lodge was basic but adequate with helpful staff (what little we saw of them). Making the most of fantastic ski conditions we were out a lot of the time; La Tania is a superb ski base and it would be best not to tell too many people about it; so easy to get up high quickly and without the queues faced elsewhere. Apres ski was reasonably quiet but adequate for everyone; Apart from the main pub, the hotel was a different venue in which to enjoy a competitively priced drink and game of pool until 2am !!! The gym & pool was available as well, at a price. Three hard days of skiing and partying later and we had to leave LaTania with a fresh 8" of snow; what more could entice us back next year (a free holiday perhaps !).

The resort of La Tania is only small but the links to the larger resorts are very simple either by sking, or if you're not confident yet there is a regular bus service. The accommodation at Chalet Juba is always maintained at a high standard with clean bright rooms and open plan living space. The owners who live and run the business pride themselves in the fabulous food and fine wine, and the chalet is always warm and cosy! On top of this Nick takes us out to explore the mountains and ensures the runs are within the groups capability and pushes you to the limits!

Review: La Tania as a resort was great, yes there aren't a million bars, but the lively one (Ski Lodge) is always good and it means there is no messing about trying to do bar crawls! Also beer and food are reasonably priced (unlike neighbouring resorts). The snow was amazing and the links into the other resorts are good, I've been to a number of resorts and I think that the Folyeres run is one of the best blue runs I have ever come across, steep when you want it, flatter when you don't winding through the trees and a bar at the bottom! Nice! The other resorts also have great runs and it means you don't spend your time running around trying to do the most difficult runs possible, rather spending more time on the runs you like! That said there is some brilliant off piste to find, the couloirs are worth a go if you are experienced enough as is the long off piste from the summit of pointe masse to the val thorens valley. Accomodation (by Alpine Charms) was pretty good, covered all the usual good stuff, avalanche of rocks onto the driveway was a little unexpected, fortunately our group (of 14) included at least 4 Civil Engineers so we were able to, err, stand around and point at it for a while. All in all a brilliant holiday, will definitely be back to La Tania in the future, if only to do more 'latania.co.uk celeb spotting!'

There is a DVD player but no DVDs so you?d need to take your own. Bedrooms are comfortable but a little on the small side. The 2 attic rooms have limited headroom but I?d be happy to stay in them if I got a good deal. I stayed in room 1 which has an annoying problem with the radiator. It got really hot & made a running water noise all night. Staff & Food: Bern & Liz, the Chalet hosts, are great & cooked plenty of really good food every night. They offer a ski hosting service & although we didn?t use it I?m sure it would be good. They keep the chalet really clean & worked hard to ensure we had a good stay. Snow etc: We bought the 6 day Courcheval lift pass which worked out well for us. We managed to ski a lot of the areas but didn?t come close to skiing all the runs. There is so much variety here that I?ll definitely be back another season. The snow was excellent & we had great weather on all but our last day. Lifts were efficient & I didn?t notice any queues. La Tania: It?s a small village with a handful of shops & it?s a good inexpensive base for the 3 valleys. I ate in La Farcon Restaurant, absolutely outstanding & well worth a visit if you can afford it. Overall I had a great holiday & will definitely be back.

Review: Firstly, the 3 valleys is the most extensive and best ski area in the world. Once you have skiied here, other places just don't match it. Sorry, I've tried Whistler in Canada, and some great resorts in New Zealand - The snow may be good in those parts, but the variety of pistes and the distances you can cover don't even come close to the 600+km of piste in the 3 valleys. La Tania is a great base from which to explore the 3 valleys region, particularly for intermediate and above skiiers who don't mind clocking some leg miles. It's a small resort, I like to ski hard and tend to fall asleep early so can't comment on the nightlife! For a good warm up day head over to Courchevel 1650 (from La Tania up the Gondola, button lift, down Loze to the Biollay chair, across to Pramuruel then take the Roc Mugnier chair up to 1650). I'm normally a keep the skis on kind of person, and avoid the faff of gondolas. However to fit in my favourite long day (9-5) from La Tania I'll go with the gondolas: 9am up La Tania Gondola, then chair, turn right down to Meribel down Boulevard Loze - blue, up Plan de L'homme chair, then Cheferie button (far right), head to St Martin de Belleville 2 chair via Jerusalem - red (best kept secret in 3 vallees), up St Martin chair, down Gros Tougne - cruisy blue, all the way to Les Menuires. Take Les Menuires chair up, down Les Boyes - blue to La Masse gondola, up 2 cable cars then down Fred Covilli - red, then join the blue for the ride down to Rebetty (wierd slow open lift to resort). Bruyeres Gondola up to the top of Mont de la chambre, turn left and follow signs down blue to Val Thorens, (quick lunch stop on the piste- no more than 45 mins). Stop to refuel here: Huge omelette and veggies about 9Euro on the side of the Mont de le Chambre piste. Turn left for Val Thorens, then Moutier chair up the other side of Val Thorens, Funitel de Grand Fond to the top, down into Orelle (4th valley), up very slow chairs to the highest point in the 3 valleys, gun it down here, chairs up to Val Thorens, down blue/red all the way back to Val Thorens to the Plan du Soleil chair then, gondola up to Mont de la Chambre (less wait time than the chair). Down mont de la Chambre - red, to Plan de Mains chair (biggest line of the day - taking the chair avoids the painfully slow blue 'poler' to Mottaret) down any blue into Mottaret (you may want to get the Plattieres bubble down from station 1 to avoid slush). Up Pas du Lac gondola to the top of Salire in the Courchevel valley, down Salire/Verdons to Coqs chair (shuts at 5pm we made it with 10 mins to spare). Down lanches - red, and f0lyeres - blue back to La Tania. Phew. Some brilliant runs in there. Next day is a recovery/cruise day in 1650! For beginners there is sufficient space for learning down low before heading up the mountain, though at this time of year it's pretty churned up at resort level. Spring skiing (I was there 31 March - 7 April) was the usual: good cover in the morning turning to slush by around 2pm. Mostly blue skies last week, but one big day of snow. What to do when you are back from skiing in Spring? There are some great short walks near La Tania, I saw a deer and wild pig in the early mornings last week (early April). Follow the signs at the back of the Saboia apartment complex (to go up mountain), or near La Taiga restaurant (down towards villages). You can get a map from the tourist office. Just a recommendation for getting up the mountain quickly - if you are heading to Courchevel 1850/1650 from La Tania, take the Gondola (the only way out of La Tania), then the button lift up (next to the chair lift), this way you avoid having to 'pole' for about 50 metres at the top of the Lac Bleu/Loze run. Great holiday, I rented a car from Easycar in Geneva, stocked up at Lidl at Lake Annecy on the way in, stayed at Seboia Apartments (all facing the piste -not the carpark - like I was in Mottaret last year!), ok free parking not too far away. About 100-200 metres to walk from my apartment door to the piste (will be less mid-season when more snow). 3 valleys the only way to go, see you next year.

Review: Fnatastic!. Snow/runs - loads of snow so coverage not a problem. Sometimes a bit icy and sometimes a bit slushy. Food - Restaurants a tad expensive... Regional Products shop and supermarket had good choice and excellent quality. Drinks in Courchevel are expensive, i.e. Euros24.2 for 4 cokes. Accommodation - Saboia (B Block) Apartments are very good, plenty of places to dry things, dishwasher, microwave and satelite TV. Easy to control heating. Balcony was a real sun-trap from 10am-3pm. Likely true of all apartments because all balconies are on the same side in the B block. The apartments are accessed (from the town-centre) via a steep set of steps (about 50). Alternative road-route is a lot longer. You can ski to the door but the route took a bit of finding. La Tania is a small place and pretty quiet but facilties are very good and links to other places easy via lifts/boarding or a free and punctual ski-bus service. Ski school is good and it is a friendly sort of place, i.e. you meet the same people over and over during the week. Only one real (bubble) lift out of La Tania that gets high enough to other places but small queues when we were there. The drag-lift alternatives are a pig for boarders, i.e. steep, flat, tug, off! (nearly), and go on for ages so are tiring. Great selection of runs in La Tania and Courchevel. hope this helps.

Review: Les Chalets du Beau Formier apartment. Fantastic accommodation, brand new and spacious. Lots of nice touches. Sleeps up to 7. We were the second group to use it. Has all mod-cons including Sky and a dishwasher. Well recommended, contact details can be found on the latania.com website. Only in resort for 4 days, drove home as the snow dumped down which was a shame. The drive back to Lyon was not very pleasant!! Went to La Tania 5 years ago with Snowline (Chalet Lea) which was great. The resort hasn't changed that much other than some new chalets and apartments. The overall feel/charm remains the same which is as it should be. Didn't rate Ski Higher for their service and booking procedure. Beware if you book the highest level of skis on Sport2000 website this does not correlate to the highest level of skis from Ski Higher. There was also some confusion over the deposit that I'd already paid. Have taken this up with the owners. Prices in resort much better than the rest of the 3Vs. If you're looking for an apartment for up to 7 people, this is perfect and very good value for money.

The snow was poor( in fact it rained heavily one day) but the Piste Beasts kept things amazingly well pisted. Higher up things were much better, but I doubt that anyone will remember 07 as a vintage year! The Three Valleys spoil you, though.The huge range of terrain will suit all types of skier/boarder. Too knackered to do much at night, except to eat Sam's wonderful food, but the Taiga Bar was a good place to chill and catch the football results! Second time in La Tania and we will be back!

Review: Another great hololiday in La Tania - second visit in 4 yrs. This time group of 20 (although 50/50 split kids/adults!). Chalet Amethyste suited group dynamics perfectly, although bear if your taking young children in need of use of buggy. Despite the promises by Ski Beat access is very tricky and without the use of 'off-road' buggy or baby slings, the younger ones of the group (non walkers) would have been chalet bound for the week! Overall food good, drinks flowing, accommodation good. Did suffer from having probably the foggiest skiing we've ever known - nearly lost one of our party down a ravine into Courchevel - due to lack of piste markers - that needs to be sorted. ESF great for the little ones yet again - dont worry about the classes being big - it doesnt seem to make a difference for the 4-6 yr olds. Magic in Motion good 2 for the older ones. NB If your little one hasnt skied before dont bother with a pass. You can buy it later in the week for the days they need it. La Tania doesnt fail again - sure we'll come again.

Review: We booked through Thomas Cook/Neilson on a last minute deal to Le Grande Foret apartments. However for some reason the apartment block is actually 2 ? Grande Bois and Britania. We were in Grand Bois in an apartment for 5 which would have been VERY cramped had there been 5 of us but luckily there was only 2 of us! The location and the views from the apartments is superb ? it was ski-in and would have been ski-out had there been enough snow but it was literally a minutes walk down a little slope from the entrance door to the Tania gondola. The room itself was spotless with lots of clean kitchen equipment, but the toilet was awful ? it smelled of urine and the underside of the toilet seat was not a sight for the faint hearted! It?s worth noting that the 9th & 10th floor walkways to the rooms are also a public walk way & elevator from the chalets on the upper slopes of the resort to the centre of the resort and the gondola so you can imagine the noise from many pairs of ski boots clumping past your bedroom window from 7:30am ? don?t expect a lie in!! For food & drink we couldn?t fault La Taiga, Hotel Telemark and Marmottes which were all spot on for atmosphere with friendly staff and great menus. Unusually for us neither of us had a bad meal all week! For empty, wide pistes it?s worth heading over to the far side of Courchevel and up the Chanrossa, Roc Mugnier & Chapaletes chairs where there are plenty of fun red runs. Not a lot of people seem to venture over that far so you can have fun without worrying about dodging ski schools ?trains? and learner skiers & boarders who cram the main slopes down into Courchevel 1850. We don?t usually like to do the same resort twice but we were so impressed with the overall experience (except that toilet) we?re already looking at coming back next year!

Review: Well, where do I start? I was just one of 14 boarders staying at Chalet Juba during the 2nd week of February. The majority of the group had decided to drive - to gain an extra day on the slopes, with the last two chaps catching the snow train from Waterloo Via Paris & Moutiers (gaining an extra 2 days over the usual 6 days when flying) We had our first day (Saturday) on the piste -an excellent day due to being very quiet on the slopes - then mid afternoon rode down to the very back door of the chalet - only to be greated by Nick who had been out him self (probably covering all of the 3V in a morning!!!) We were able to ride out of the back door or a very short (10-15m) walk to the 'green' to ride on into town and on down to the gondola - an excellent location - simply excellent. The chalet is, what can only be described as perfect, a true home from home. In fact better than being that, is was a heaven from home! Once we were all changed from the slopes, fresh cakes, tea and coffee were waiting for our hungry bunch of boarders - and boy didn't it disappear quickly! - this was the same on all days - different cakes, awaiting for the tired 14 souls that returned back to the heavly abode that is Chalet Juba Nick & Joey were great - really welcoming, funny and extremley knowledgeable on the 3V area - we were able to get advise on which runs were going to be best each day - Nick took us out on two days - and for those that lasted! - a great day and many a mile was added to some quite already tired legs! Evening meals were exquisite, with different wines to accompany the meal each night, we were not going to go hungry or thirsty - that was for sure! Breakfast was ready each morning so we could re fuel before hitting the slopes again. The boot room allowed us to have nice dry boots every day rather than the semi dry of previous years! again - hard to put a price on this luxury. The only thing we would have changed was to have a tad more snow - but hey - at least everything else was perfect:-) We will definitely be returning to Juba in the future - there is simply nothing to fault with the chalet, Nick and Joey's attention to detail with everything from the food to the advise and the humour at the table in the evenings!!!!!!!!!!!! We departed saturday morning and 18 hours & 850 miles later - we were home - knackered - but home in one piece!!!

Review: Holiday Company - French Life Ski. We drove from Manchester which was a bit of a trek but were pleasantly surprised that there were no major delays, we arrived in the resort on Saturday 11th Feb at around 4.30pm, the road up to la tania is excellent (although not so good for a few drivers without snow chains when we left on Saturday 18th Feb!). The weather for the first three days was excellent which meant the snow was a bit worn and icy in places. Nevertheless it was very good skiing and a joy to be able to ski to the ski locker door! Ski hire for the children was very efficient at Twinner Sport, good supermarket and bread shop. The accommodation was very clean on arrival although could have been a bit bigger (our choice which we will obviously address next time) with great view over the mountains. We didn't eat out as when we tried to book the only times available were too late for the children, maybe next time we will book before we arrive. We found la tania and courchevel very easy to get around with good runs for all levels. One criticism, which we are sure will be sorted out in time, is that when the weather was bad (or good is you like to ski when its snowing) it was difficult to get over to courchevel for the children when the chairlift was not working (only the two drag lifts, which they did manage but my wife fell off!). We found la tania to be a very quiet, family friendly, 'happy' resort, overall we had a fantastic time and we will be back.

Review: Another excellent stay in this Ski Magic Chalet (3rd time now). Upstairs this time. Good for families, we had three generations. Probably not best for mixed groups as the upstairs room is a bit open plan above the lounge area (and a bit low roof for tall people). Still a good chalet though with excellent ski in, ski out. Food/wine was good and our hosts excellent. Bar in Telemark means you don't have to walk down to Ski Lodge if you want something a bit closer, but not as lively. Already booking downstairs for next Xmas 2006.

Review: Trevor's third, and my first ski holiday. Loved the friendly village feel of La Tania, and the chalet was great - warm, comfy, boot driers, good food and plenty of wine! Skiing in the 3 valleys absolutely brilliant although would be OK without the Meribel pass on a first visit. Have to agree with other reviewers about the suitability of La Tania for genuine beginners - I've had lessons in a snow dome in England, but only just mastered that green run by the end of the week. That last bit down La Folyeres got me every time! Also agree about ESF and Magic in Motion - the latter far better for style of teaching and friendliness. Trevor's MiM teacher was an ex Olympic skier! Definitely will be back - came sooo close to booking for Easter, but Trevor would have had no holiday left after our (already booked) summer hol. Pants.

Review: Snow good and great skiing almost to door. Top food( if anything a little over elaborate) and great service from a good team( thanks to Lloyd,Ken and Annemarie).SkiMagic get top marks for customer service..lifts to Courcheval etc and skis, boots, passes all sorted out in chalet. Clementine is pushing it a bit for size to accommodate 16 adults, nowhere for us all to sit down! But understand that SkiMagic are on the case and plan to reduce the numbers to a more manageable number( 12?) and change one of the downstairs bedrooms to increase the communal seating area. If they do that , then this will be a really attractive proposition for a great chalet holiday. The bars are few, the Taiga is best for chilling , Ski Lodge for a LOUD night. Beginners note: the green back to La Tania is pretty steep in places. You'll be better off on the shuttle bus from 1850.

Review: Excellent week holiday with very friendly hosts, Nick and Joey. Week started well with flying from Bournmouth with Easy Jet to Geneva. Collected car hire organised via pricematchcarhire from this web site. Excellent car a 406SW with 400KM on the clock. Stayed at Nick Ski in chalet Juba. Excellent clean accommodation with good wholesome tasty food, as much as you could eat with excellent home picked wine that would look good on any dinner table. Booked ski and boot hire from Ski Higher also from this web site. Excellent door to door service, the only complaint I have is that I had the premier ski and they were blunt. With a small group of 4 of us of mixed skiing/snow boarding abilities we found La Tania and Courchevel the best areas to ski. The weather was a bit too hot for the snow and it showed towards the end of the week with a great deal of icy and bare patches appearing. On the last day we hired a few sledges and did the luge run which was great fun in Courchevel 1850. It is a lot steeper and hair pin bends that it looks from the lifts! All in all we had a great time and would recommend all the companies we used and thanks to www.latania.co.uk for all there hard work.

LOCATION: The chalet was in a great location. You can put your skis on right outside the boot room and pop onto the bottom of the red run. In the evening you can get within 20m of the door, PERFECT! CHALET: Good although I think some of the interior is due for a make over. The seating area can be a bit cramped if the chalet is full and everyone decides to sit down at the same time. FOOD: Absoultely gorgeous food. The breakfasts were the best and most varied I have ever had while skiing. The cakes in at tea were lovely and the evening meals were all excellent. HOSTS AND STAFF: Everyone was great and extremely friendly and helpful. Would I stay again and recomend it to others. I certainly would and it was all very good value for money.

The only downside is the noise that people make when they leave the ski lodge or L'arbatte. Talk about stereotypical yobbish British lager louts abroad. What is it about 4 pints of watered down beer and snow outside that makes people want to take their shirts off, run around singing badly and shouting loudly. The sooner these idiots realise that this behavior is irresponsible the better. More preferable if they find other ski resorts. Don't they realise that above the 2 bars they have just staggered out of are hundreds of people trying to get some sleep. This was not a one off incident. This occurred everynight! Everynight the same sad British accents. The bars should advise customers of their responsibilities to residents. Sort it out La Tania.

We took our two and half year old son with us for his first holiday and he took to skiing like a duck to water. By the end of the week he was skiing the link from Courcheval to La Tania.

Review: Our apartment was privately owned and it was clear its owner took pride in the quality of her property. The location is excellent; you can ski off the end of the landing and is virtually next to the lift. It is close to the bars/pubs etc too. Only drawback is there is no parking and lugging luggage into the apartment is a bit of a mission. The views up the valley are stunning. Sadly the previous occupants had not bothered to clean the place and the cleaning person paid to clean up the place between guests is just clearly taking the money and going to the pub. Would we go again; yes! Good value and compact yet confortable apartments smack-bang on top of the slopes where you can access some incredible skiing!

Bubble to the action never had any queues when I was there, but then I do get there within minutes of it opening, always the best approach to the morning rush. Piste to resort is suprisingly resilient and should suffice in all but the most miserable conditions. If this is your first 3V trip, get over to Courchevel and spend most of your time there, of course the 4V circuit to Orelle and back is obligatory, but the best skiing with the best lift system is in Courchevel. I would avoid the Meribel valley like the plague as a base, but this year, apparantly, the Platieres lifts have been upgraded. It's must be good I'm back there this Saturday!!

Review: Four o? clock in the morning starts are never the most agreeable, least of all when Gaylord Focker (Paul) is scratching away in the next room all night. Remember, I?m the one with the allergies, right. So there we were on the M25 at 5.00 in the morning. Not pleasant for me but probably par for the course for the Canon corporate slaves. I decided this year to begin my trip with some semblance of where I might actually be going, devoting detailed study time to the piste map while sat at my desk. Pic Noir, Jerusalem ? I could even tell you what colour they are. This geographic familiarisation proved somewhat redundant at the airport, when I found myself lost and alone fifteen minutes prior to departure. I only went to buy some sweets. Gill was as understanding as ever. ?That?s your problem?. The transfer couldn?t have been smoother. We were picked up by a Kiwi called David in a smart looking mini-bus and he may well have wondered how his week was to pan out, as echoes of ?smell my cheese? whipped the frosty morning air. Having your boots, skis and ski passes delivered directly to the chalet is a new and pleasurable experience that Laura obviously enjoyed. I suspect without such convenience, it may well have taken her a few days to actually get up and hire anything; such was her laid-back approach to mountain life. A few slices of cake in the delightfully homely chalet (as long as you?re not allergic to it of course) and we were off. I can?t be held fully responsible for misreading the map but given my previous ten hours of study, I felt a tinge of guilt as David careered head first down the black run an hour later, with his tongue out and one ski on. ?I can?t stop, I can?t stop? echoed through the Three Valleys until some French guys rescued him, halfway back to Geneva. And so the inevitable daily adventures began. The following day, I dropped Gill off at her ski school armed with her dinner money and a miserable expression and waved her goodbye at the gates ? or what is at the lift? At least I know what it will be like taking the kids skiing for the first time, should we ever have any. On the Tuesday, they decided to take her to Courcheval 1850 and leave her there ? a little unfair for someone so young ? but despite the sprinklings of snow, we knew how to get back over to La Tania and carefully boarded the chairlift to Cote De La Loze. As we reached the top, the weather was appalling ? thick snow, biting wind and freezing cold. Visibility was no more than a few yards, the only conceivable benefit being that you couldn?t see Gaylord?s dodgy ski outfit anymore. ?Don?t make me do it. Don?t make me do it. Why did you bring me here ? I knew this would happen?, Gill yelled, tears streaming down her face. I hadn?t considered that I was somehow responsible for the prevailing weather systems but that?s relationships for you. Despite some encouragement and some stern looks, the group?s attempts to get Gill down the run to safety were always going to be doomed ? persuasion seems to have the opposite effect with her. ?I?m staying here, I?d rather just die?, was the worrying decision she took as the conditions worsened and our gloves started to freeze. There was only one option. I hopped over to the lift and in my best pseudo French-English-Russian-Thai begged, ?My girlfriend she cries. We must go down.? Whether he understood me or not is perhaps not relevant, as her face told a thousand stories and the lift was brought to an abrupt halt and we clambered aboard ? not without more tears mind, as descending a chairlift is another experience Gill hasn?t be schooled in ? but a few minutes later as the weather eased at a lower altitude, she calmed down. If only that was the end of it. I though it best to get back on the slopes briefly and head down to 1550, but Gill decided to walk down the slopes, with me boarding and carrying her skis. Don?t you just love a good skiing trip? Needless to say, she resigned from ski school the following day. The chalet was very homely ? great food, great hosts (who thankfully didn?t get the guitar out every few hours as in a previous trip) and a prize selection of dorks to boot. Damien and the badminton boys occupied the remaining downstairs room, and debate ensued about the mechanics of their relationship. At first, it appeared that the badminton boys were gay lovers and, after the slopes, would take advantage of each other while Damien sat upstairs. Hours later they would emerge in their de rigueur uniform of jeans pulled up chest-high with a jumper tucked in, and a nice brown belt. But apparently they were brothers. If I was to guess their occupation I would have said they were account clerks for the National Trust. As it transpired, they were account clerks for the National Trust. Luckily we managed to lose them each day, but this meant that David and Annie would have to ensue the torture whenever they offered to go ski-guiding. A full day would have sent me over the edge ? literally. My phone bill amounted to ?70 over the week as I spent each day frantically trying to meet up with Dan and Chris at the top/bottom/middle of each run. Delete as appropriate. Since the chalet was equipped with about 40 novels, this kept Louisa occupied for the first few days and David, other than on day one, shared Gill?s facial expression most days as he headed down the run with La Tania?s largest blister of the season. Oh and he just really loved Damien. The remaining days passed with similar adventures ? Gill and Lou skiing into a road, races, and a bag of potatoes on the end of your chair. A great trip, despite my aversion to the chalet ? no idea what caused that (don't worry if you stay here - it's a medical condition) ? and surprisingly Robbie the Scotsman?s wife did appear from upstairs about four days in. And to think we thought he?d knocked her off, pretending to take her a bread roll each morning. Danny Roosty

I would recommend doing a big shop in Moutiers on your way out if you are self-catering. The Sherpa in La Tania is ok, but small and not great value. The public lift was an absolute life-saver after a knackering day (or night)out! But I would advise girls to wear hard-core walking shoes because the grit on the pavements is patchy. The restaurants in La Tania were great, which made up for having to take out a second mortgage to pay for lunch anywhere in Courchevel! Unfortunately the snow deteriorated throughout the week, which made getting to and from the main Courchevel valley pretty tricky unless you are a very good and confident skier. But luckily the excellent free ski shuttle bus saved the day. I would heartily recommend a stay in La Tania, it is really pretty and has a village atmosphere unrivalled in my experience.

All I can say is that I'm glad we missed the Snowline chalet. We had the best week ever at Chalet Juba. The chalet location is superb. In the morning you only have to walk a couple of minutes before you can strap on your skis/board/blades and pop out onto the red slope down to the main gondola. In the evening you can literally ski back to the chalet door. Once back, there was always delicious fresh cakes and tea and coffee. Loads of hot water to soothe the aching muscles and then excellent food and wine in the evening. After dinner just relax with a coffee in front of the fire. A perfect experience. The week we went the snow was excellent after a dump of about a metre of snow in the first couple of days. It did go very cold (-18 outside the chalet!) but it didn't matter, we had some of the best skiing we've ever had. Thanks Nick & Joey, we will be back in the future!

Review: The apartment was lovely and great position. The snow was very very thin at the top by the end of our week stay, but the run down into La Tania was always ok. That is never a blue run though !!!! The restaurants were good in La Tania and the bars were ok, although another couple of bars would be even better. The overall holiday was excellent.

The snow was not the best we have had but there was excellent skiing to be had over the whole area. Sophie and Daisy proved excellent cooks and Daisy's ski guiding was brill. It is the only chalet party we have ever been on where the "5th dimension" was a dinner conversation topic!! One of our fellow guests had been given the latest Stephen Hawking book as bedtime reading! It was a good thing that the Chateau Topaze red was reasonably palatable!

Review: First time to La Tania and hope it won't be the last. Had a fantastic time and arrived the week after the great dump of snow so perfect conditions. Great value for money. Everybody was so friendly whether in the village, on the lifts or in the mountain restaurants such as Les Corbelys (Spell??!!). The area is so vast that it far exceeded any of my expectations. We made it to Val Thorens once but then had a run of our lives to get back to the lift we wanted from Courchevel in time - just made it too - great laugh though! (I guess we should get out of bed earlier!!) Hope to get there next year. Stayed in La Tania Apartments but couldn't remember the name of it.

Wonderful chalet at side of blue piste to village was ski in ski out. Chalet hosts Brett and Kate from Australia were absolutely fantastic hosts, cooked breakfasts, great afternoon teas and dinners out of this world. They even picked up slabs of beer for the troops in their own time. 5 star service. Snowmaking on run to resort first class during a bit of a lean spell regarding snow. Local bars very good especially Taiga which I now rave about to anyone who'll listen. Three valleys skiing continues to be the best in the world and improvements for the coming season with passless turnstiles and upgrading of lifts on the 1650 side will see me back again next year. Honest! I'm not on commission, I just love the place.

This year I went when the tour de France was on! I booked with Ski accommodation & it was excellent. The car hire was there, (Pricematch car hire), the appartment was better than home - I don't have a dish washer! The views from the balcony in the summer are great, just would love to see it with snow in the winter. I have skied just once, not very well.

Review: What can I say. From the moment we arrived, the week could not have been better. Ron (Veronica) and Ian were the ideal hosts who prepared fantastic food, served great wine, and treated us as if we were family. Ron is a great chef, Ian does a superb breakfast and, get this, he imports wine as well, so both quantity and quality were excellent (not at breakfast though). The only trouble was we had to eat and drink it all! Although we went towards the end of the season the snow was still good, but lower down was ?a bit sugary in the afternoons?. As well as being perfect hosts, we picked up the skiing jargon from Ron & Ian as the week went on also. La Tania was the ideal location for us. We were a party of 3 families , 6 adults and 7 kids. Seven of the party hadn?t skied before. A combination of the beginners run in La Tania and the greens in Courchevel 1850 were perfect for them, whilst those who thought they knew what they were doing were able to go further a-field quickly and easily. The apr?s-ski is as lively or quiet as you want it to be. Finally, to sum up how good a time we had, despite the party collecting one fractured wrist (teenage boy who thought he could snowboard) and two damaged knee ligaments (forty something beginners getting a bit cocky and over-confident towards the end of the week), the fact that we are all desperate to return to the same chalet in the same resort as soon as we can is the best recommendation I can make.

Review: After an overnight drive (3 drivers)we arrived in La Tania at about 0930 on 19th March and were on the lifts by 1030. We were able to get into our duplex apartment at 1600 after a full day's skiing. The apartment was spacious and very well equipped. The advantage of renting from an English owner is that there is a kettle and mugs and a reasonably well stocked store cupboard. Also a good selection of interesting books and games to keep the non-skiers or anyone unfortunate enough to have a mishap entertained. The kitchenette, whilst not spacious, was adequate for our needs and we enjoyed meals out at La Ferme, the Telemark and Les Marmottes. On departure day we enjoyed another full day's skiing before setting off on the long drive home neatly avoiding the traffic. We caught the shuttle at 0545 and were home mid morning on Sunday. Snow conditions were rather Spring-like and the sunshine was wonderful. It was like skiing on wet sugar by the early afternoon although the morning skiing was excellent and we enjoyed some well prepared runs into Meribel and Courchevel. Having visited in early January and again in early March, we seemed to cleverly avoid the best skiing and a consolation pair of skis would be warmly received!!

La Tania is an excellent base for any family, we have 4 boys, Ben aged 13,Harry 9,Oliver5 and Jamie 3. Ben and Harry were off on the slopes on there own. TOP TIP bring some walkie talkies if you are happy to let the kids go off but want to keep in touch with them! Oliver was skiing from the top of Folyeres by day 3 and Jamie was skiing down the Troika on his own by the end of the holiday. All the locals were friendly, Le Ski pub great, Overall mark 11/10!

Limited choices to eat as some restaurants had decided to shut up shop for the season so once again the local pub saved the day. Accomodation was very basic considering what we payed and would definitely look at an inclusive package next time in our own chalet. Snow was fantastic. 3 valleys is surely the best resort in the world. Didn't board the same run twice..superb.

Is there anything better to eat than a Ski Lodge Burger when you have a hangover? is there anywhere better than La Tania on a powder day? Of course the answer to that is no!!

They came back with top reviews for the skiing (the important bit) and some well selected restaurant ideas. Despite problems with planes (too much snow) they still managed a full weekends skiing so the boys arrived a few weeks later... Transfer was quick and easy in the minibus; helped by alcohol consumption. Ski lodge was basic but adequate with helpful staff (what little we saw of them). Making the most of fantastic ski conditions we were out a lot of the time; La Tania is a superb ski base and it would be best not to tell too many people about it; so easy to get up high quickly and without the queues faced elsewhere. Apres ski was reasonably quiet but adequate for everyone; Apart from the main pub, the hotel was a different venue in which to enjoy a competitively priced drink and game of pool until 2am !!! The gym & pool was available as well, at a price. Three hard days of skiing and partying later and we had to leave LaTania with a fresh 8" of snow; what more could entice us back next year (a free holiday perhaps !).

Phil Spence picked us up, Debbie looked after my 4 month old baby and all the ski/boot hire was also sorted. Loved the flat because it is Toffa's and as a fellow Toons supporter I felt right at home! Also great to have Sky TV because it kept the kids happy in the evening. Only criticism was we were unaware we needed the children's passports to confirm their ages re the ski passses - so a wasted journey over to the ticket station from the flat but that is a very minor point. Had a lunch in the pub ski lodge and thought food was excellent, plentiful - plus the service was FAST which was a key point with a starving 4 year old! Wonderful to see all that snow (went late January) and the skiing was superb. Cannot wait to get out there again.

Review: What stunning weather... this week was perfect. A fall of snow on the weekend before we arrived, then day after day of beautiful sunshine! In fact the hot air balloons in Courchevel were making the most of it going up almost everyday! They make for a great backdrop to your picture from the top of Saulire! Had a few memorable evenings in La Tania, including numerous late night expeditions to Pub Le Ski Lodge... only Bob and Hector were missing from Le Pub crew. La Tania is fast becoming one of the best ski resorts to visit, the Chalets are all modern most with en-suite, which, let's face it that's what most of us want these days... a great bus service to Courcheval valley, which one of non-skiing members used frequently. Not their choice, an unfortunate tumble on the first day

Review: Okay! So we're back in the land of reality, BUMMER, but there you go. We arrived in La Tania on a crispy Saterday afternoon, with beautiful blue skies and no possiblity of snow for at least the next few days. We were welcomed by our Chalet Staff who were eager to get us settled and sorted out. Unpacked and ready for dinner, later saw a few of us down at the Ski Lodge for a couple of tipples with the locals. That proved to be a rather potentially hazardous experience, it's amazing what the high altitude and some fresh air could do on our first morning out on the slopes. We had made an impression as someone approached me in Corchevel 1850 and asked if I had been at the Ski Lodge the night before... As 2nd, 3rd and 4th days drew to a close, there was still no dump in sight, so we had to adapt to the rather icy conditions, albeit challenging for the beginner/intermediates. 5th and 6th days saw such amazing fun on the lower runs, with all the friends I had met, some staff from other chalets etc and even some of the reps were out. GREAT to see them ease into both the social informants as well as the "hard-core" ski bums. Friday evening saw our "until then - goodbyes" to fellow ski/board enthusiasts as our transfers were a 4:30am start back to Geneva. La Tania is perfectly situated for the 3 Valleys and I agree, it can be as lively or as sleepy as you want it to be. Great family facilities and the free ski buses to other resorts superb. Although, we wouldn't mind them running a little later, I'll be going back for a long weekend before the end of the season.

Review: How can I possibly convey the sheer joy and excellence of my first ever skiing holiday? Let me try it this way - YEEEEEHAAAAAA!!!!!!! OK to give a bit more detail in the more conventional way. La Tania is a beautiful resort, offering something for everyone. Fairly quiet(ish) apart from pub le ski lodge on Tuesday night after toffee vodka and tequila slammers! But seriously, it is the sort of place you can make as relaxing or as lively as you wish. The 'locals' are very welcoming and keen to share 'local practices', such as tobogganing 'La Tania style'. Again, refer to Tuesday night, toffee vodkas etc. Say no more. Those of you who were involved know exactly what I mean! The whole thing from start to finish was superb and to say I am suffering from post holiday blues is the understatement of the year. PLEASE SOMEONE TAKE ME BACK THERE NOW!!!!!!!!

Review: LaTania is the best kept secret place in the Alps that once you've visited you'll want to tell everyone about. It's a cute little place snuggled in between Meribel and Courchevel so you get everything from both those areas with a touch of exclusivity and at low prices by comparison. The log cabin village above the village within an alpine forest has stunning views down the valley and it is connected to the town by a lift to make the evening walk back from one of the bars a pleasure rather than an expedition. Our chalet was clean, and spacious; well run by two New Zealanders that cooked great food, provided us with good local information and gave us a good laugh. We ski'd to and from the door, well more so from the door because most afternoons we ski'd directly from the slopes to the door of the pub. The town it's self is cute more of a village really; just a few modern but tastefully built hotels, one of which houses a public sauna and swimming pool and a village centre. There's a supermarket, a fantastic baker's, and a few different food shops for lunch time snacks. I tried out most of them, all great quality and I never felt ripped off, unlike at some other resorts. Apres ski varied. Some nights we went to the Ski Lodge a couple of times to the French bar and one night we took the free ski bus to and from Le Praz (back at midnight) I have to admit to not paying full price for any of the beers all holiday, or at least not remembering paying full price because it was happy hour seemingly every time we ordered. The Ski Lodge provided the football fixes by means of Sky TV and the internet facilities allowed me to email work and gloat. The live music night at the Ski Lodge was a bit too live for my taste so the French Bar provided a gentler evening's entertainment and a refreshing change of beer brands. The Folyeres blue ski run runs straight through the town and just over the wooden bridge is Ski Higher.

Review: If you want to avoid the morning queue's waiting to enter the Three Vallys system then La Tania is superb ! Not once did I have to wait to board the lifts and within minutes you are on the slopes. The choice of ski-ing is huge and all areas are within range of La Tania, although to get across to Val Thorens was a bit of a trek. La Tania is a quiet resort with little choice except the one pub, however due to the quality and quantity of the ski-ing and the fantastic weather I have never skied so much in my life and had little energy left for Apres Ski especially having eaten a large meal and unlimited wine at the chalet each night. I would recommend La Tania to anyone especially families or couples. However if you must have a good night life then you should choose another location unless you are prepared to pay for a taxi each night.

Review: Fifth time visit to the 3 Valleys in as many years; second year in a row in La Tania! We were all getting a bit worried when we got to la Praz and there was no snow to be seen (December 28th 2002)! Nerves about our chalet hosts soon were soothed and we settled into Chalet Amethyst (second year in a row here too!) In a nutshell we had a good week skiing mainly up and over into Courcheval 1850 and back again at the end of the day. Highlights of the week - New Year's Eve, shopping in Courcheval 1850 the day it rained, and our afternoon out with Robbie from SCF in a white-out!! It is the first time ever I have come home and had to wipe mud off my boots, but we had a great time and look forward to next year with you all in La Tania.

Review: Absolutely awesome & then some! Excellent Skiing on vast terrain, helped by a heavy dump on the first day. (A bit of a whiteout but nothing to us Scottish Skiers) Good weather & fantastic Skiing for the rest of the week. Who said the April Skiing was Quiet / boring? Top nights on Mutzig? & shot?s in Le pub, culminating in 3 am sledging down Folyeres & impromptu firework displays which even the neighbours appreciated. (Well they threw full cans of beer at us, a definite compliment where we come from!) Last but not least, a terrific Chalet with enthusiastic (on duty for a 5:30 am breakfast on our last morning was well impressive) hosts & some of the best home cooking ever. Thanks Tim & Maz.

The staff of 'Accommodation in the Alps'(Sue, Sandy, Karen and Nick) were absolutely first class - friendly, professional, always available and extremely efficient). The apartments were comfortable, well furnished and well situated with fantastic views of the piste and mountains. The snow and skiing were great considering the season had just begun. Ski classes were well organised and the instructors (English speaking) were friendly and accommodated everyone's needs. The local hostelry (Le Pub Ski Lodge)provided great food and entertainment in a 'Kid - friendly' environment and the staff were again first class.

Review: How do you describe La Tania, I'm not sure, a haven from the snobs of Courchevel or Meribel?? We came as a family for the first week, including non skiing parents then for the second week skiing friends joined us , it was fantastic, Parents loved it too - not sure what the village thought of them! Great lifts to the top, ski school great (according to Tracy, she wanted to pick the best looking instructor but was too scared to!)Skiing fantastic. However, don't take the sign 1/2 way down to La Tania that says La Tania on an off road when the snow is light. We spent an hour walking (with skis in the now dark) back to the village, no clue where we were going and convinced we would have the search parties out looking for us (thank god for walkie talkies!) A pub has never been so welcoming as that night!!!! New Year = best place in the whole world, we'd got rid of the family and the friends had arrived. Fantastic meal at Le Ferme then into the square, put it this way we are coming back this year!!!!! I now love the ketchup song, they kept playing it (reminds me of La Tania)! I know I am very sad. My son (14) drank a whole bottle of wine without suffering (well he is a snowboarder so what do you expect?). From La Tania you can do the 3 valleys and back in a day, we did it new years day (those who had'nt taken their phones off the hooks!!!) You must do this!! I'm not sure how to end this except to say that we (partner and I) still visit the website everyday, and wish we were there!!!! Going home - another story, caught in a blizzard on the peage - moved 12kms in 10 hours!!! ended up wearing dirty laundry to keep warm!!!! The only down thing about the whole holiday (no we didnt mind getting stranded on the peage with 15,000 other cars!) was my sons snowboard (his brand used twice new christmas present) and my skis were knicked from the hotel lockers.

Nightlife mostly centered around 'Pub Le Ski Lodge' which hosted 2 great live bands during the week, and seems to be most popular amongst the British. Other venues catered for tastes varying from a billiards contest to Russian folk dancing! Regular busses run until late should you wish to sample the attractions of nearby villages / towns, such as Courcheval 1850 or 1650. During my stay it was possible to ski right into the village, but convenient lift access makes it an ideal location whatever the snow conditions. From families to young groups of friends,I would definitely recommend La Tania to anyone looking to ski the 3 valleys.

Trios Vallees is one of the most amazing areas I have boarded in, better than Whistler BC; but the lifties aren't so friendly! You can go in a different direction every day and not cover the same runs once. Snow was good as we had some fresh to arrive to which was great, but went slushy as the sun was hot!

What a difference a few years makes. Wow! Pictuesque alpine looking wooden chalets, set amongst trees, in a quiet part of the mountain. Ours, Chalet Juba, seemed brand new. Everthing clean, fresh, sparkling. Warmly decorated, cosy, imaginative recipies with pleanty of great food and lots of good wine, (definitely not cheap plonk). A great welcome and genuine interest was exuded by our hosts Nick and Joey to help make our stay everything we wanted. We skied, virtually to and from, the front door every day. The nearest lift to get up the mountain was only minutes away. An enormous choice of pistes, big wide blue cruisers, rattling good red runs and mean black runs will cater for every level of ability. It's high too, so you are assured of good snow. Nick, (of NICK SKI), knows the mountain so well and will guide you to some magic places! Finally, the really good news - it wasn't expensive! Which was what had driven us away from France all those years ago.........We'll definitely go back again!
