This a fabulous property just above Ste Foy Village, just 5 minutes walk into the village centre and with some amazing views. It offers over 600sq.m of habitable accommodation and a total of 9 bedrooms.
The current owner bought the property in 1999 and undertook a complete renovation using a local architect, local artisans and local, reclaimed materials. The work was completed in 2002. The original building dates from the 18thC. The property would make a stylish family home in the mountains or could lend itself to an upmarket chalet style, chambre d’hote business. A few years ago the owners did just that with the property featured in the upmarket Michelin guide.
Ste Foy Village is connected to Ste Foy ski resort by a free shuttle bus. It is possible to ski to the chalet via a straightforward off piste run. The village has a grocer, boulangerie, post office and a couple of bars and restaurants including the very popular Hotel Le Monal. Access to Les Arcs, Paradiski , via Villaroger is an easy 5-10 minute drive away whilst Val d’Isere/Tignes and La Rosiere are not much further away.
A stunning property. A stylish mix of modern convenience in a lovely restored property. The accommodation is on 4 levels.

There is a hallway with plenty of storage for skis and boots, a laundry room, fitness room with sauna, hot-tub, shower and WC and an independent 2 bedroom apartment (65sq.m) with lounge/dining room and open plan kitchen. Both bedrooms have a bathroom and WC.
The ground floor has the main entrance with digicode and automatic lighting. The entrance hallway has a separate WC off it and plenty of room for storage. There is a large duplex dining room and lounge with a big fireplace and doors on to the balcony. The kitchen has made to measure fittings and is fully equipped.

The first floor has a large lounge/TV room with a mezzanine and fireplace and, again, doors lead to a balcony. There are 3 further bedrooms on this level of which two are large with bathrooms and a separate WC and one smaller with its own shower room.
Finally the second floor is where the current owner lives when the rest of the chalet is not being used. There is a very large lounge/dining room with fireplace and a library area. The kitchen is open plan and fully equipped. There are two bedrooms on this level. The junior suite is 40sq.m and consists of a bedroom/lounge area with doors leading to another balcony, large bathroom and separate WC. The master suite is 75sq.m and again consists of a bedroom/living area with fireplace, doors to the balcony, large bathroom and separate WC.
There is Wifi throughout the property with each bedroom having its own code. Heating is electric under-floor throughout the chalet. Outside, opposite the chalet there is a substantial 3 car garage (electric doors) with further parking to the side. There are various gardens outside, a pergola and separate BBQ area and a lovely stream runs past the chalet
The comfort and style of the chalet need to be seen to be appreciated. It would make a superb all year round home in the mountains.

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).
