Chalet Mongellaz
Reviewed January 23, 2014

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.

Stayed there 4th - 11th January 2014. Good location for entry into the vast 3 Valleys ski area. Easy 100m walk to the piste and able to ski back to the door. Located at the top of the village, so a simple 10 minute stroll to resort centre for shops, bars and restaurants. Generally traffic free, so airport transfer buses are only to the car park at the base of the resort. Quite a long walk to chalet and back to bus at beginning and end of stay, but all luggage is delivered to the door and back to the bus.

A pleasant, cosy and comfortable chalet which sleeps 10 guests. In a group of four, so we met and stayed with another six lovely people from various parts of the UK. Really easy going, relaxed atmosphere and no need to go out in the evenings as the company and facilities were good. Sauna was a blessing after a hard day skiing.

Resort rep [Becky] and chalet maid [Mhari] were both very helpful and friendly. Mhari`s first week on her own in looking after the chalet and she coped very well for someone just out of school.

Our room was small, but comfortable enough. En-suite bathroom with a very good shower.

Could be improved by Wi-Fi provision and regular, thorough cleaning of kitchen surfaces and floor.

Would be more than happy to stay there again on a ski vacation as it fits the bill in so many ways.

Just got back from a week in La Tania staying in Chalet Mongellaz
This was my first stay in La Tania and I found it to be a lovely village, it's small and most of the Chalets are above the village, which involves a 10 min walk down.
The slopes are easy to access from the chalet, there is a red run a short walk away which takes you out onto the bottom of the run so is easy for beginners. The way back into the chalet is off a green run, we had good snow and could ski to the door!
The chalet it's self is clean and comfortable but felt more like a 3* rather than a 4*, the bedroom was small and basic, little storage - not even a bedside table! just a rail to hang clothes and two shelves.
There were extra chalet hosts/friends?! staying in the chalet, both male and female and I could hear them talking and laughing until the early hours some nights, there was even people sleeping in the chalet food store! This was a bit of a strange set-up but didn't effect the holiday too much, other than when we ran out of certain things - bread, yoghurt, cereal etc when our host was questioned she explained that these things had been eaten by the other hosts staying in the chalet.
Our host did her best, she always tried to accommodate us and her cooking was of an average standard. The chalet was not sound prof and every morning we were awoken by her stomping up the stairs and our friends who had the room across from the kitchen where woke by kitchen noises. We did advice her about this and she took it on board.
I did have a nice holiday and the other guest in the chalet were good fun, I would return to La Tania but probably not Chalet Mongellaz.
Go to the Chalet expecting 3* accommodation and you wont be disappointed, go expecting a special 4* accommodation and I think you will.
All in all this is a good value for money Chalet

Room Tip: We had a room on the bottom floor which I think is quieter than the rooms on the upper floor next to...

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
