The chalet sits at the foot of a piste and a new lift is scheduled to be installed for winter 2022 conveniently located just 100m away which will enhance both property investment and importantly, the convenience and enjoyment of owning a chalet in this exclusive area of the resort. Access to an adjacent indoor 30m2 pool, gym and sauna as well as two outdoor hot tubs is available by agreement with the owners.
The airports of Geneva, Grenoble, Lyon and Chambery offer easy transfer options and the nearby town of Bourg Saint Maurice provides the Eurostar TGV rail service direct from London or Paris. The Sainte Foy Ski resort is often referred to by the press as a hidden jewel in the crown of Savoie resorts…full of glorious surprises and very family friendly. It’s reputation for some of the best off piste skiing around coupled with beautifully integrated pistes for all levels of skier gives it deserved recognition as a genuine value for money ski area in the French Alps. The local shops and restaurants have professional and friendly staff offering a wide range of products to cater to all clients.
This year, a new 6 seater high speed lift will replace the second Arpettaz lift increasing the skier movement to the higher pistes appreciably. Sainte Foy is also centred in the hub of 6 major ski resorts including Val D’Isere, Tignes, La Plagnes, Les Arcs and La Rosiere which provides access to the Italian resort of la Thuile. Many property owners also take advantage of the ever increasing summer tourist opportunities and school holidays usually see a large range of leisure activities taking place in a number of locations in the area. The climate is agreeable with warm days and slightly cooler, beautiful evenings. Activities include hiking, fishing, mountain biking, white water rafting and of course road cycling- the Tour de France regularly visits the region and is possibly the greatest free sporting to event to see on the planet ! And to watch the sunset over the stunning mountains during a barbecue with friends and family is very, very special indeed.
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).
