This chalet in Ste Foy ski resort offers peace and seclusion for family holidays and an excellent rental track record. A short walk from the slopes takes you to this perfect ski area while a 15 minute drive will give access to some of the most famous resorts in the world, Val D’Isere, Tignes and Les Arcs. Built in 2002 this chalet is in a development of eighteen chalets in a quiet and secluded area of Ste Foy that benefits from lots of sunshine and great views. Currently divided into two apartments this property offers various accommodation arrangements and could be easily reconfigured to your needs.
Entering on the ground floor there is a bedroom with en-suite shower room immediately to your right. The bedroom has a north facing window. To the left are shelves and a cupboard for storing ski wear and ski boots, on the right a guest toilet. The hallway opens into the spacious living, dining and kitchen area with an insert fire and plenty of light from the windows on three sides. The kitchen is compact but has modern appliances, a washing machine and a breakfast bar that divides it from the dining area. The living room is a good size and there is access to a south facing balcony through sliding French doors.
Moving upstairs a Velux window lights the hall area around which three large bedrooms are arranged. On the left the first has an en-suite bathroom with shower and toilet and large wardrobe. The second bedroom has a window to the south and a wardrobe. The third bedroom again has a south facing window and wardrobe. There is a shared bathroom with bath and toilet on this level. This whole area could be reconfigured to provide an additional ensuite bathroom.
Using exterior stairs there is access to the downstairs apartment. This has two bedrooms with a shared bathroom, a kitchen and a living dining area with a tiled floor and underfloor heating. Joining the two apartments via an internal staircase would be easy to achieve.
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).
