Property DescriptionThis is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an absolutely immaculate 1 bedroom and 1 corner bedroom SKI in SKI out apartment which is situated in the heart of the family orientated ski resort of Sainte Foy Tarentaise. It is located in a highly reputable 4 star residence, yet is free of any commercial lease, which means that you can use the apartment when you want, throughout the year. During the winter and high summer months you can also benefit from the residence's leisure facilities which include access to the indoor heated swimming pool, the spa jacuzzi, the hamman and sauna. There is also a resident beautician on site for when you would like to reward yourself with a special treatment (booking recommended and payable on site in the spa). Located just 150m from the first ski lift, the apartment has immediate access to all the amenities including shops, bars, restaurants, ski hire shop, tourist office, a mini-market, a new launderette and the ESF ski school centre. There will also be a brand-new ski lift installed for the 2023 ski season just 100m away. The south east facing balcony affords splendid views to the ski slopes and mountains and it is possible to ski back to the building and into the area where you will find your own personal ski locker. The apartment is accessed from the pedestrianised terrace area where you will find all amenities and through a secure entrance hall, via a lift to the 3rd floor. An entrance hallway with useful storage cupboard leads into the spacious open plan living room and kitchen with tiled floor which is equipped with electric hob, extractor fan, sink unit, built in dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave unit and ample storage cupboards and drawers. Adjacent to the kitchen area is a very useful and spacious floor to ceiling storage cupboard.

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).
