Chalet Balkiss is an "upside down" chalet with the living area on the upper floor - vaulted high ceilings into the room give a spacious feel with a sociable living area and log burner - there's more than enough space for all the chalet guests to sit and relax in the evenings. Outside on the balcony, you'll find a hot-tub where you can soak away the aches and pains and take in the amazing views over the Bozel Valley or you can make use of the indoor sauna facility.

This accommodation only holiday to Chalet Balkiss in La Tania, France departs Saturday 11th January 2020, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Nestled in the forests between Courchevel and Meribel offering excellent access to both resorts, La Tania is known as the best kept secret of the Three Valleys. It is also the youngest establishment in the area, built to host the athletes of the 1992 Winter Olympics. Proud to be eco-friendly, the resort facilities are powered by a hydro-electric system. Despite its modernity, the village has been designed in-keeping with traditional wooden Savoyard architecture, integrated amongst the beautiful forest scenery...
Long green, blue and red tree-lined slopes overlook the village, and the Three Valleys provides a ginormous amount of opportunities for all different abilities. You can make your way over to Courchevel and Meribel on skis alone. There are a wide range of ski and snowboard schools offering group and private lessons for all ages. There are gentle green runs for novices from the top of the gondola all the way back down to the centre. The blue run ‘Folyères’ on the other side of the lifts is a great place to de...
After a day on the slopes, La Tania is a peaceful base to unwind in. The atmosphere is mostly quiet and relaxed, but some après buzz can be found for those seeking it. Le Bouc Blanc is a popular restaurant at the top of the gondola from the village, ideal for relaxing in the sun with a drink on a deckchair. Pub Le Ski Lodge attracts most of the nightlife, hosting regular live music performances and themed nights. The crowds gather for happy hour and they air the major sporting events so sports fans won’t miss ...

Snow conditions were a little bit on the thin side but it was a cracking week none the less, not least due to the wonderful hosts in Chalet Balkiss. I am sure you would never say as much but I kind of half expect there might be the odd 'hiccup' if you go the very first week of the season, and especially if the hosts are 'new' hosts but they could not have been any better. They were extremely professional, getting a good balance between joining in with us all as guests and keeping a little distance. Nothing seemed too big a request, they never appeared in least flustered or under pressure and the food was really very good …. possibly too good as some in our party would argue having stood on the scales on returning home!

thanks for a great holiday at Chalet Balkiss …. we had a fabulous time, largely down to the chalet hosts who did a fantastic job. I've stayed in many chalets and I have to say they were excellent - not only did they deliver well cooked tasty food, on-time every day, but nothing was too much trouble for them. They kept the chalet very clean and tidy and were always on hand with advice. In addition they were just a lovely friendly and welcoming couple who made us feel at ease right from the start.

All of us were impressed by the chalet and the service given by the chalet hosts who provided fantastic service and food. My friend commented that it was the best food she had in 20 years of doing chalet holidays. The chalet host even showed off by making a swan out of an apple every night for the cheese board! The chalet was spotless and small things like enough sofas in the lounge for everyone to sit down at the same time, and coat hooks in the rooms make a big difference. The chalet is in a great position and it was a good quality chalet without being "stuffy"
