La Tania has a variety of transport options to choose from. Rail access from Moutiers is easy and Geneva and Chambery airports are very convenient for travel to La Tania.
A variety of transfer companies offer both shared and private transfers to the local airports below to La Tania. Shared transfers will be significantly cheaper. If you are a large party, you may be able to negotiate a discount. It is also sometimes cheaper to opt for a transfer to Le Praz and then take the free ‘navette’ (bus) up to La Tania, which takes about 5 or 10 minutes. There is also the option of renting a car, as there is ample free parking in La Tania (except during peak weeks).
You should expect to pay between £80 and £120 per person return for a shared transfer.

If you require a hire car for your ski holiday, there are a number of fantastic car rental companies based in Europe.
The snow train service run by Eurostar which operated a service between London St Pancras and Moutiers was cancelled for the 2020/21 season. A campaign to save the ski train service has led Eurostar to confirm that the service has not been completely axed and may be back for the 2021/22 season.
You can still book an indirect trip to the Alps on the Eurostar website. This would mean taking a Eurostar train to France and changing onto an SNCF train for the rest of the journey. Transdev run a regular bus service between Moutier station and La Tania. You can download a timetable here
The drive from the UK to La Tania is not difficult, but it is nearly 600 miles from Calais, so you should allow 10 hours. This is the route we regularly use. If you have a fair distance to travel to the Channel Tunnel or the ferries from home, we recommend staying over close to Folkestone or Dover and making an early start in the morning
It goes without saying that you should carry a set of snow chains or snow socks. Note that snow tyres will be compulsory from the 1st November 2021 in Savoie.
Except in busy times, there is plenty of outside parking in La Tania, but no public undercover parking. There is very limited parking by our chalets, so you will need to unload and then park the car in one of the car parks. It’s only a 5 or 10 minute walk and you’ll probably need to stretch your legs!
