This chalet has been successfully operated as a catered chalet for many years. It is well laid out with great accommodation for guests, private accommodation for owner operators and the necessary space for storage to provide summer and winter holidays to holidaymakers. The local resorts of Les Arcs, La Rosiere, Ste Foy, Val D’Isere and Tignes are just a short drive away. It is even possible to ski to the door from La Rosiere!
You enter a large hall area. To your right is a laundry or boot room with access to the huge garage. To the left there is spacious living area with insert fire and a separate TV room. There is a guest toilet. The living area flows through to the dining room which comfortably seats 16 while the kitchen is set up for professional catering . Adjacent to this is large cold store with ample room for wine and provisions. There is also a 500 litre hot water tank in a cupboard.
Moving upstairs there are six bedrooms. The first has French windows on two sides plus access to a terrace and an en-suite with bath. The next bedroom also has access to the terrace and space for two beds plus a bunk bed. Then you have a bedroom with en-suite shower, next an independent bathroom with bath. Then a double bedroom with en-suite shower and south facing window. There are then two further bedrooms with en-suite showers. All the bedroom s are well appointed with lots of light, plastered walls and carpeted floors. There is also a linen store on this floor.
On the top floor there is a family apartment, ideal for owner’s accommodation. The living, dining and kitchen area has dramatic views west down the valley from the full height windows. There are three bedrooms, a laundry area and bathroom on this floor which has its own separate heating system.
The chalet has a large garage with inspection pit plus plenty of parking. Potentially three separate apartments could be created here by dividing each floor into a dwelling.
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).
