This spacious five bedroom apartment is arranged over two levels in the centre of Ste Foy. There is direct access to the nursery slopes and two balconies to enjoy the view in both directions and spacious well equipped living areas. Close to Val D'Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosiere.
Situated on the upper floors of this building constructed around 12 years ago this apartment is spacious and located with direct access onto the nursery slopes and sensational views to the south and west.
As you enter there is a double ensuite bedroom with exposed timber beams and a bathroom with bath, toilet and heated towel rail. The bedroom is tiled with north facing windows. Next there is a separate toilet, then a sauna room, followed by a shower room with toilet. Continuing along the hallway there is a further double bedroom with a cupboard and window facing the nursery slopes. The corridor leads to a large living dining and kitchen area with double aspect giving plenty of light. Directly in front of you there is a dining area with a large table and chairs with space to seat ten.
To the left is the kitchen with a breakfast bar, a pantry/laundry room to the left and a French door leading out to a balcony with great views of the nursery slope. On the other side of the room French doors give access to a south and west facing balcony with great views of the Vanoise mountain range and the Tarentaise valley. This side gets the afternoon sun and is ideal for après ski sunbathing. The rest of the room is the living area with an L shaped and a two seater sofa, a Tv and multi media unit, exposed wooden beams and windows on both sides.
From the dining area stairs lead up to a landing with a twin bedroom on the right. Here again the authentic chalet feel is accentuated by the exposed beams. Next, again in the eaves, is a larger double bedroom with views of the nursery slope and ensuite shower. On the landing area there is a separate toilet. Beyond this there is a further bedroom again with views of the slopes and then a large bathroom with toilet, separate shower and bath.
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).
