La Tania is a good-value, family-friendly base from which to explore the slopes of its swanky neighbors, Courchevel and Meribel, and the wider Three Valleys area. 

The resort was built for the 1992 Winter Olympics, and at 1350m is about the lowest purpose-built French resort you'll find; its wood-clad buildings sit comfortably in a pretty woodland setting - quite a contrast to the bleakness of many French ski stations. 
Despite being set further down, it's only two lifts in either direction to reach the neighboring resorts and the heart of the Three Valleys, with access to 600km of pistes and 180 lifts.

La Tania is set just off the minor road linking Le Praz to Meribel. Free buses go to Courchevel and there's a service to Meribel during the French school holidays.

Pros

Part of the Three Valleys, with good access to Courchevel and Méribel

Long runs through woods to the village: a great place in a storm

Attractive, compact, traffic-free village

Much improved snowmaking, but ...

Cons

At this altitude, snowmaking is vital in most seasons

Limited village facilities

Village nursery slope gets through-traffic (but higher one does not)

The one long green run is not genuinely easy
