This large village house is located in the typical and charming mountain village of Ste Foy with its amenities and year round community. Set amongst the mountains this property offers breath-taking views of its surroundings and is just a short drive from Ste Foy and the ski resorts of Val D’Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosiere. The 3 story house combines space and character making it a great opportunity for a renovation project. The property would undoubtedly make a spacious family home for full time residents or holiday makers.
The ground floor of the house has been used as a cave/cellar and is made up of a series of stone rooms. This area is large enough to create a separate apartment.
The first floor contains an open plan kitchen/dining room, bedroom, toilet and a bathroom there is also a balcony facing the courtyard at the front of the house.
Moving upstairs via an external staircase in beautiful local stone you enter the top floor barn via a fabulous old wooden door. The combination of stone walls and timber beams give a fantastic Alpine feel and there is plenty of scope for different configurations here. Currently the living space amounts to 133m2 but this does not include the loft.
There is also an outbuilding at the rear of the property used as a workshop. With this property comes 240m2 of land with the possibility to build garages. Currently the property is heated using traditional wood burning stoves.
At the front of the building there is a typical French village styled water fountain giving character to the courtyard and property. This village house represents a real but very promising renovation project, the property is built in the traditional Alpine manner using stone and timber.
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).
