Property DescriptionUndoubtedly, a unique opportunity to acquire a brand new luxury apartment in Le Grand Bois development which is the first building of note when entering the wonderful ski resort of Sainte Foy. Built to a very high standard, the apartment has habitable space of 73m2 with an additional 13m2 wooden balcony offering an amazing view across the valley to the ski resort of La Rosiere in the distance. This family orientated ski resort is the hidden gem in the Tarentaise Valley with the added benefit of easy access to 6 other world class resorts including Val D’Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs, La Plagnes, La Rosiere and ski over the border to La Thuile in Italy. A brand new ski lift will be ready for operation for the 2022/23 ski season which is literally 50m away from the property. A free ‘shuttle bus’ service will also whisk you, your family and friends to the centre of the resort within minutes where you will find all amenities including shops, ski equipment hire, lift pass office, ski school, restaurants and bars. A ‘privileged’ access leads to the entrance area with a separate WC, storage room and the lower floor comprising a generous 27m2, modern, open plan living and dining area with single aspect windows leading to a private wood balcony affording truly amazing views of the surrounding mountains. A stairway leads to the upper floor where you will find Bedrooms 1 and 2 that have a large, shared bathroom and velux roof windows. In addition, there is a mezzanine level providing extra storage or living space. Private and covered parking with electric up and over door by remote control is situated in the basement.
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).
