Being such a big ski area, there are plenty of transport links to take you from the surrounding airports to the village (most fly into Geneva). Located in the French Alps, La Tania is home to some serious skiing, with access to the Three Valleys, making it very popular. For this reason, it’s always advisable to book well in advance for transfers and accommodation. Geneva is 140km from La Tania and has the most transport links to transfer you to the resort in around two and a half hours. The next biggest airport is Lyon St Exupery which has public buses to the ski stations. The smaller airports of Chambery and Grenoble (under an hour and a half by road) are closer but have fewer public transport links.
- Chambery to La Tania 105km, transfer time just under 1.5hrs
- Lyon to La Tania 180km, transfer time around 2hrs
- Geneva to La Tania 141km, transfer time just over 2hrs
- Grenoble to La Tania 177km, transfer time just over 2hrs
Rail travel from the UK can be a relaxing way to reach the resort and having changed from the Eurostar in Paris a French SNCF service will get you to the nearby station of Moutiers, 20km away, and the short final leg can be completed by bus or taxi. Eurostar will be running direct ski trains for Winter 2010 on Fridays and Saturdays too. Having a car in resort gives a lot of flexibility to visit other resorts but it is worth trying to book accommodation with a guaranteed parking space. Driving to La Tania will take you about 9 hours from Calais and the tolls will cost around £140 for a return trip.
