Property Description

This building sits on the front line of properties facing the nursery slopes or ‘front de neiges’ in the small but perfectly formed ski resort of Ste Foy.

Arranged over five floors it features a large and fabulous pool in the basement. Originally destined to be a spa and swimming pool as part of a bigger complex the owner has decided to offer this part of the building as a whole unit giving the opportunity for a forward thinking buyer to create a unique and exciting chalet facing the nursery slopes and adjacent to the ski school. Views are fantastic on both sides with the slopes of Ste Foy to the east and west down the Tarentaise valley from the other side.

Starting on the top level there is a large bedroom with a mezzanine and bathroom access via a flight of stairs. Here there is the potential to create additional space in the loft for a very special master bedroom.

The first floor is reached by a lift. Currently there are two massage rooms and showers but two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms could be created here very easily. This is 58m2 in total.

The ground floor is the foyer area featuring a large entrance hall, lift and bathrooms. This would be an ideal kitchen, living, dining area and is 58m2 in total.

Via the lift or stairs you descend to the next floor where you find the 11m by 5m pool with current flow and automatic cover, Jacuzzi, changing rooms and showers. The whole area is decked out in old wood and local stone with underfloor heating. The total area for this floor is 145m2 and there is an exit out to west valley side where you could create a great terrace for spring and summer use.

Below this there is a gym with storage areas, boiler rooms and access to the garages.

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).
