Brilliant chalet, we were really well looked after and I would recommend it to everyone. Brian and Maggie who were husband and wife hosts looked after us very well. Maggie’s cooking was excellent and there was a young lady to look after children (not that our group had any) and lay the tables. We had a Gluten ... + more

Very happy with the chalet, the bedroom and other rooms were clean and fine and I enjoyed the food. It also has a crèche for families. The only drawback is that Chalet Marmau is on a very icy, slippery slope (the track you have to walk down froze overnight) and even though the piste was close after that, this... + more

The nannies couldn’t do enough to help us and make our children feel at ease. Nothing was too much trouble for them; the nannies with the kids from day one. Massive thanks to Grant and his wonderful team in La Tania. + more

Food & Wine

Your day starts with freshly brewed tea or coffee (don’t worry, we bring real teabags from the UK) and a spread of fresh crusty baguette and jams, yoghurt, fruit and cereals on the table. The cooked breakfast menu changes every day but includes bacon, sausages, eggs, French toast, grilled tomato, succulent mushrooms, Heinz baked beans…
Once you’ve returned from your tough day on the slopes, homemade afternoon tea is served and favourites range from classic treats such as scones with cream and jam to squidgy brownies or raspberry and white chocolate cupcakes. In the evening we let our experienced hosts use their imaginations and the fantastic fresh produce we have to create a mouthwatering 3-course menu for the week. Unlimited red, rosé and white wines (from bottles, not boxes!) are served through dinner, (with coffee and chocolates in the comfy seats after your meal!). If you’re a bit of a wine buff, you can pre-order our Wine Lover's Package which is just £35pp for 6 bottles of our upgraded selection - you choose whether you'd like 6 whites, 6 reds, our mixed selection or your very own combination of the above!

Special diets

Children are equally well looked after. If you wish your youngsters to have an earlier tea – all homemade, fresh and nutritious, of course – then please let us know in advance so we can pass the message on to your host. If there’s anything you’d rather not eat, whether for moral, sensory or digestive reasons, please don’t hesitate to let us know before you travel. We won’t charge you a penny extra.

We update Chalet MarMau's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This package holiday to Chalet MarMau in La Tania, France departs Tuesday 13th December 2016, 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 ...

"Brilliant, highly recommended!"

Adrian Hillman, Greater London
5/ out of 5
Brilliant chalet, we were really well looked after and I would recommend it to everyone. Brian and Maggie who were husband and wife hosts looked after us very well. Maggie’s cooking was excellent and there was a young lady to look after children (not that our group had any) and lay the tables. We had a Gluten Free girl with us and they went out of their way to make sure she had something nice to eat each evening that was similar to what the rest of us were eating. We liked the welcome evening, and at the end of the week they had a farewell evening with canapes. Everything was clean and the bedrooms were nice and spacious. Getting around La Tania was easy as there’s a little slope down to where all the bars and restaurants are, and you can ski from there down to the gondola. It took less than 5 minutes. Booking a Sunday to Sunday stay worked well for us, I expected Saturday to be really crowded being the weekend, but it was emptier than week days as it’s changeover day in most places. If we returned to La Tania (we would over Courchevel as the prices are much better and you ski the same area) we would happily stay here again.

The Marmau was perfect and met all of the requirements that we had, I couldn’t think of anything I’d change. The food was absolutely amazing, breakfasts had all the usual’s like porridge, then the cooked breakfast side of things. Evening meals you had pork, chicken etc, nice vegetables and potatoes. The presentation was quite posh, so it felt like we were getting more than we’d paid for. Our room (1) was nice. It got quite hot so we had to leave the door open on the hook as the windows didn’t open. We’ve stayed in La Tania before, it was a little bit of a walk up hill to get around, but not a problem. The rep came in every morning to give us a weather update which was nice. To be honest there was nothing to moan about.

Would have been very good if there was the option. Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant it was the first time that we have had chalet staff sitting amongst the group during meal times. Really impressed with the interaction by them all. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was of a very high standard - always remembering to cater for individual dietary needs without having to be prompted. Chalet location was very good and was ideal for the slopes and apres ski. There were issues with our return flight from chambrey that resulted in an overnight stay in the hotel. The ski rep was superb in organising and assisting with the stranded passengers. Very impressed with her. There would be nothing that we would change regarding the staff or the chalet. One learning point may be the choice of ski hire company, although the equipment was very good we literally queued for hours in the rain/sleet. Would certainly recommend the chalet and would return and/or use the company again. Dave and Carol

"Good chalet, only drawback is the location"

Very happy with the chalet, the bedroom and other rooms were clean and fine and I enjoyed the food. It also has a crèche for families. The only drawback is that Chalet Marmau is on a very icy, slippery slope (the track you have to walk down froze overnight) and even though the piste was close after that, this made it very difficult to get around. It would have been better if the staff could have broken up the ice to make access easier.
