Just got back from an amazing trip in La Tania whilst staying at Chalet Mongellaz. Really nice place and great value for money with great accessibility to the slopes. Our Chalet Host (Josh) was doing his first season out here so wasn't expecting much from the food, but instead he surprised us all with some amazing 3 course meals and freshly baked cakes from when we got in off the slopes. Considering he was only 20 years of age his culinary skills were superb (beyond his years - not just for a 20yr old) and he was able to confidently deliver each dish like he'd been doing it for seasons. The chalet and bedrooms were always kept in great order and the service impeccable. Josh even walked us down to the Ski hire shop on the first morning to ensure we found it OK - just another example of the excellent service
Added to this there was great support from the rest of the team there at Ski France with Becky being our Holiday Rep and other great touches like calling on Seb (SkiFrance's maintenance chap) who came round to get the fire place started and bring fresh wood. Ted (another chalet host) was also a great help in advising on where to head for our first days snowboarding.
We always had such great nights back at the chalet that heading out to overly expensive bars never really crossed our minds. The atmosphere at the chalet was great which made searching for alternative distractions unnecessary.
Big thanks to the staff of Ski France for making this trip special.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Tania is the newest resort in the Three Valleys area, and as such is one of the most pleasant. The village's wooden buildings give it a cosy feel, while the friendly cosmopolitan atmosphere makes it a lot less pretentious than some other resorts in the area. Tucked in between Courchevel and Méribel, this car-free village is perfect for families and those looking for a more laid-back approach to this at times overwhelming ski area.Once you have had enough skiing, La Tania has snowshoeing, skidoos and paragliding to try out to. The village is generally a sleepy one with a cluster of inviting bars and restaurants to enjoy. If you're looking for busy nightlife, head over to Courchevel or Méribel. ... more less
