What Oliver loves…
- Chalet Ash enjoys a fabulous position in La Tania, just 100m from the slopes and gondola and next door to an excellent restaurant.
- The chalet is warm and welcoming with a modern feel as well as typical Savoyard character.
- Guests can opt for a fabulous catering package ensuring that the chalet is pre-stocked and the effort to prepare breakfasts, afternoon snacks and evening meals is minimal.
The charming Chalet Ash is perfect for large families, two families or groups of friends. It boasts gorgeous Savoyard character but with a slightly more modern feel than many ski chalets. The chalet enjoys a fabulous position, just 100m from the slopes and main gondola of La Tania and there is even a restaurant next door. How brilliant is that! Chalet Ash sleeps ten guests in four bedrooms, two of them with three beds in each.
La Tania is a picture postcard ski village which sits between Courchevel and Meribel with excellent access to the whole of the Three Valleys ski area. It is a small, welcoming village with a good range of bars, restaurants, shops, ski schools and kindergartens but at the same time its size makes it utterly charming and you are never far from the slopes or the village amenities. The resort was built for the 1992 Winter Olympics, enjoying a traffic-free centre which is especially popular with families. A fast gondola lift takes you to the Three Valleys ski area where you can enjoy 600kms of piste, one hundred and eighty three blue and green runs, one hundred and nineteen red runs, thirty three black runs and the most amazing snow-capped scenery. As well as downhill skiing and snowboarding, La Tania offers some other wonderful, fun activities including sledging, night skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and paragliding. Out of the ski season, visitors enjoy mountain biking, trekking, tennis, clay pigeon shooting, swimming and paragliding. Courchevel and Meribel Centre are only a ten minute drive away, both brilliant for nightlife and other entertainment.
Chalet Ash is built over three floors and features traditional Savoyard characteristics with plenty of exposed wooden beams. There is plenty of pretty pine furniture around but also some comfy contemporary sofas and modern rugs. Your stylish living space is located on the ground floor along with a handy ski and boot storage room. The living area is bright and airy with huge picture windows. There is an enormous sumptuous corner sofa, another squishy one and chairs where you can relax on return from the ski slopes or later to watch a movie. The sofas are adorned with colourful scatter cushions. The space offers a modern feel and sweeps wonderfully around to your spacious dining area and kitchen. The dining area boasts a giant table and chairs for the whole group. It is open plan to your modern kitchen where you can prepare hearty breakfasts, afternoon teas and delicious evening meals using its excellent appliances.
Guests have the option of an excellent contactless catered service at the chalet which includes provisions for daily breakfasts, afternoon snacks and six evening meals including pre-dinner nibbles. The meals are delicious, coming from Savoyard delicatessens, supermarkets and long standing partners and prepared by expert chefs. Drinks are part of the package too and include hot drinks, juices, beer, red and white wine and Crème de Cassis for pre-dinner cocktails. The hot and cold breakfasts, cakes, biscuits, clementines, fruit, nuts, crisps, aperitif crackers and three course dinners are delicious. Everything is very simple to put together taking little effort and no menu planning or shopping. Dishes can simply be put in the oven to be heated through. Your fridges and cupboards will be stocked before your arrival and re-filled during your stay. If the likes of pumpkin soup, goat’s cheese salads, French charcuterie, chicken in a red wine sauce, hake with rice and vegetable gratin, duck in a cep mushroom sauce, French Normandy apple tart, lemon tart or chocolate brownies don’t do it for you, there is another a la carte option. You can tailor-make your holiday meals from lists of dishes prepared by a local Savoyard delicatessen or from a local shopping list to suit your budget and appetites. Of course, there are also options for vegans and vegetarians.
The first floor of the chalet is home to two bedrooms. The first offers a large double bed and an en suite bathroom and the second offers three single beds and another en suite bathroom. Upstairs on the second floor, you will discover one bedroom with two single beds and an en suite shower room and another with three single beds and an en suite. The chalet works very well for two families with children sharing the triple rooms. All of the bedrooms are very comfortable, exactly what you need after a busy, tiring day on the mountain.
Chalet Ash is located quite close to four other chalets that Oliver’s Travels feature in La Tania so if you fancy inviting some more friends or another family, choosing one of those would be ideal. The chalets are Chalet Elm, Chalet Akbash, Chalet Cedar and Chalet Hawthorn. Guests staying at Chalet Ash enjoy a welcome basket and logs as well as the option of the brilliant contactless catering service.

The picturesque ski resort of La Tania is small, family friendly and sits at 1400m, just ten minutes’ drive from Courcheval and Meribel and with excellent access to the whole of the Three Valleys’ impressive ski area. The resort is the newest, enjoying a good selection of shops, bars, restaurants, ski hire shops and ski facilities. Its traffic-free centre is so pretty and the chalets and apartments are surrounded by spruce forests. The village lies at the foot of blue and green runs and good skiers can even ski through the forest off piste to return to the chalet later in the day.
As well as skiing, there is a good range of winter and summer entertainment in La Tania including snowshoeing, sledging, night skiing, cross country skiing through the trees, paragliding and much more. The entertainment of Courcheval and Meribel is easily accessible too. If you fancy dancing the night away or partying until the early hours in a lively apre-ski bar, all is possible. There are good facilities for children too with a nursery centre for young ones aged four months to five years and a Piou Piou skiing kindergarten for three to five year olds. There is a good range of restaurants in La Tania from inexpensive pizzas and snacks up to the Michelin starred gastronomic restaurant, Le Farcon.

The highest lift in the Three Valleys is at 3200m and there are over 2000 snow cannons guaranteeing superb snow during the season. The main twelve person gondola out of La Tania links to two high speed chairs from where you can choose to drop towards Courcheval via Chenus or over the Col de la Loze towards Meribel.

INTERSPORT - COURCHEVEL LA TANIA
Chalet Ash is brilliant for families or friends with children. The chalet sleeps up to ten guests using three single beds in two of the bedrooms. This works particularly well for two families. The living space is excellent with plenty of space for family games or movie watching. Chalet Ash is located just 100m from the slopes of La Tania and its gondola. You really do not need to carry that ski equipment very far!
La Tania is excellent for families with a kindergarten and creche and a good number of excellent ski schools. There is a free drag lift for beginners and a good range of slopes. As well as skiing, children can enjoy sledging, the usual snow ball fights, night skiing during the school holidays, bumboarding, soft play and much more. Bumboarding is very popular with children. You just need to get hold of the board which is basically a colourful tray with a handle and take it to the foot of La Tania’s slopes where they will have so much fun. There is also a climbing frame there for fun. There is a brilliant 1.7km toboggan run between 1850 and 1550. With a ski pass you can take the bubble lifts back to the top until 8pm finding the floodlit track. You can hire a toboggan from a local ski shop and it is so much fun! The centre of La Tania is pedestrian only which is very popular with families. There are a good range of restaurants serving child-friendly meals.
Courcheval and Meribel are only ten minutes away in the car with some excellent activities for children. If your children are too little to ski all day, there is a free soft play centre under the Croisette building in Courchevel 1850. Also at 1850 and outside the Croisette, there are horses and ponies with their carriages waiting to take families on a ride around the resort. There is a merry-go-round and lots of stalls offering delicious treats. In the Forum at 1850 there is an ice rink and bowling alley. During February, the Three Valleys hosts an International Pyrotechnic Competition with the most amazing fireworks. You might have to take a bus to get to it but it is incredible. In Meribel, La Chaudanne enjoys an outstanding complex, Parc Olympique which offers a swimming pool, gym, ice rink, spa, climbing wall, bowling alley and night club as well as an excellent medical centre. The Altiport area of Meribel is a lovely way to introduce children to the slopes. Its Moon Wild route is very gentle and very pretty through the forest. Children also love the themed areas and snowparks. The Inuit village in the Altiport area enjoys banked turns, a mini slalom course and themed games. The moon park boasts ten hectares of obstacles to practice on and take jumps for those that are looking for more of a thrilling ski. Le P’tit Moon is a designated area for young skiers aged between six and twelve years old. If they are tired after morning ski lessons, there are some delightful picnic areas at the start of the Saulire Express and below the Pas du Lac gondola in Mottaret.
