Luxury Ski Chalets Sainte-Foy

One of the best-kept secrets in the Alps

Described as one of the best-kept secrets in the Alps, this family-friendly resort in the Tarentaise valley is a quiet and unspoilt village just a 90-minute drive from Chambéry airport. At an altitude of 1550m, Sainte-Foy is an attractive resort full of authentic Alpine charm, with traditional Savoyard style buildings throughout the village. With 100 snow cannons on hand and air currents from the Italian Alps bringing heavy snowfall, Sainte-Foy has a great snow record. Skiers staying in Sainte-Foy have the best of both worlds, as they can enjoy the quiet slopes of the village yet are only a 20-minute drive from the neighbouring resorts of Tignes, Val d’Isère, Les Arcs, La Plagne and La Rosière.

If you are looking for a ski holiday away from the crowds, Sainte-Foy, with an altitude ranging from 1550m to 2620m, has a great range of skiing. With the majority of the resort having been built among the trees on the south-west side of the mountain, skiers can enjoy the warmth of the sunshine as they make their way down the slopes. This resort offers 41 km of pistes of varying difficulty, with beginner adults and children able to ski for free on the village slopes. All pistes lead back to the village so skiers can easily navigate across the mountain. With magic carpets and nursery slopes, beginners can work on their technique, while more advanced skiers can enjoy what Sainte-Foy is renowned for - its off-piste skiing. Snowboarders will also enjoy the terrain park and off-piste terrain.

Family-friendly resort

Overlooking the Thuria Glacier, Sainte-Foy is the perfect family-friendly resort with something for everyone. Being a smaller resort, everything you need is within a five-minute walk, including the bars, restaurants, ski lifts and ski schools. With exceptional snowshoes trails, Sainte-Foy also has the alternate winter activities of dog sledding, ski biking, and paragliding, to name a few. Fans of heli-skiing can also partake in this adrenaline-fueled skiing experience over the border in Italy.

Ideal for relaxing, Sainte-Foy has three wellness centres available for everyone's use. During the season there are plenty of concerts on the snow front, taking in a variety of genres from swing and folk music to rock.
