To be sold with recent upgrades and located in the prestigious precinct of Battaillete, it affords spectacular views and easy access to all commercial and social amenities. Ski lfts are close by with a new Battaillette Lift scheduled for the winter of 2022

Wonderful opportunity to purchase a superb Chalet in the acclaimed resort of Ste Foy, regarded as a hidden jewel in the French Alpes with outstanding orientations and elevation for winter-long deep snow. The 4 bedroom property is located in a quiet, private enclave in Ste Foy ski resort, and will be practically ski ski out with the new Bataillette access access lift scheduled for winter 2022. T

he Chalet, built just 9 years ago, is structured over two floors, and is a traditional Savoyard styled property with vaulted wooden beam ceilings, english oak floors, and large double-sided log fire. With a commanding position within the exclusive La Bataillette collection of private properties in Sainte Foy, the Chalet has stunning views from the top floor living area down and across the Isere Valley. The traditional alpine architecture creates a timeless dialogue of wood, stone, and slate, whilst the interior decor exhibits a smart, liveable design with accents of clean lines, and a warm, welcoming ambience. Access to the adjacent leisure centre can be included in the sale package, and two separate car parking spaces are included in the private secure underground car park.

Sitting comfortably in the peaceful quartier of La Bataillette, this outstanding property is a short walk from the main resort centre where there are shops, restaurants and bars, and the main ski lift. Even closer to hand is the Black Diamond Lodge complex with excellent restaurant and bar, plus additonal nearby shops, bars and restaurants. People arrive for the winter adventure, but find the summer climate and range of liesure activities a very very powerful attraction to spend more personal and family time in the mountains. With so much to do right on your door step, it's difficult to choose what to do next - hiking, mountain and road biking, fishing, white water rafting, canoeing, abseiling, rock climbing, mountain refuge trecks, outdoor court sports, pétanque, etc etc. And let's not forget the greatest free sporting event on the planet - Le Tour de France which usually passes through the Tarentaise !!

Sainte Foy - voted ‘Best Family Ski Resort in the World’ by The Sunday Times. Nearby resorts include Les Arcs chairlift (15 minutes), Tignes (20 minutes) and Val d’Isere (25 minutes), La Rosiere and ski access to Italy (25 minutes).

Sainte Foy en Tarentaise Ski Area

Forget large busy resorts, 2009/2010 is all about “Boutique Skiing” and nowhere does it better that Sainte Foy de Tarentaise. If you LOVE off piste skiing, have a young family and enjoy a chalet atmosphere well then you will REALLY LOVE Sainte Foy. It’s one of the prettiest modern ski villages in France.

 

Nestled among the trees at 1550 metres in a sunny bowl above the Savoie Isere valley, it’s just a short car ride away from a host of better known resorts such as Val D’Isere, Tignes and la Rosiere. It has stunning views of Mont Blanc (4,807m).

 

Small family ski resorts are back in fashion and Sainte Foy has everything you will need. The right skiing mix for experts and beginners, good facilities for children, fine food and a high standard of accommodation. For small children Sainte Foy is ideal, it’s friendly, has a kids club, a ski school and the nursery slopes are conveniently close to the middle of the village.

 

Despite what you may have encountered in other small resorts, lifts are in good condition and well maintained. Sainte Foy opened its first 3 lifts in 1990 and has been adding to them ever since. The most recent was a 6 man chairlift in 2006/7. The village has plans to build more lifts in the future to further extend the 30km of pisted ski area. Currently there are 4 chairlifts and 2 tows. The Morion and Crystal Dark blacks that run down from the Col de l'Aiguille summit at 2620 metres are suitably challenging, whilst a full top to bottom descent is possible by taking a succession of reds such as L'Aiguille down to Creux de Formeian finishing up with La Savonette.

 

The snow cannons and its north west facing position keep Sainte Foy snow-covered from December to April. Off piste addicts have raved about Sainte Foy for years, you’ll find powder here days after it has been skied out in nearby Espace Killy. It has long been the reserve of off piste guides and you may want to make use of their expert knowledge, especially when facing serious steeps!

 

Boarders have a terrain park all to themselves by Cret Serru (2040m). Beyond this St Foy is a natural playground for snowboarders with countless drops and hits. The top half of the mountain is a treeless powder bowl, whilst the lower trails are cut through the forest creating endless opportunities to enjoy.


Anyway it’s not all about skiing and boarding .......or is it? Your first port of call, once the lifts have closed, should be the Pitchouli Bar. Renowned for its early evening live bands and relaxed atmosphere it’s THE place to wind down before dinner. There are a variety of different restaurants in and around the village, menus range from tapas to local Savoyard fayre.

 

Don’t expect huge nightlife in Sainte Foy, that’s not what it’s about, however if a pleasant meal, a few glasses of wine, in front of an open fire then falling into bed appeals to you, you really will LOVE it here.

 

The Eurostar offers a regular service to Bourg Saint Maurice which lies at the foot of Sainte Foy de Tarentaise, from here a taxi transfer can be arranged. Local airports are Lyon (135kms), Geneva (130kms). Chambery (75kms) and Grenoble (115kms).
