Sainte Foy


Sainte Foy

Nestled in the stunning Tarentaise valley, close to some of the world's most famous ski resorts including Les Arcs, La Rosière, Tignes & Val d'Isère. Sainte Foy really is the jewel in the French Alps.

Famous for its range of slopes, its friendly atmosphere, uncrowded pistes, affordable lift passes, excellent powder, and incredible restaurants, Sainte Foy is a place that is proud of its unspoilt, Alpine charm and it has an ambience that makes Sainte Foy a great all-round destination.

The resort is serviced by ski lifts running from 1550m up to 2620m, with the sheltered, north-west facing slopes enjoying exceptional snow throughout the winter season. The lower slopes offer wonderful sweeping runs through the trees whilst the upper slopes provide truly breathtaking descents.

When you fancy a rest, why not stop off at one of the superb restaurants on the slopes, some converted from original Savoyard shepherds' lodgings – all of them divine?

Sainte Foy really is a perfect base even for those who are looking just to enjoy the great outdoors, with something for everyone. For non-skiers, Sainte Foy offers a comprehensive range of activities, from guided snowshoe walks to dog sledding!

If you want a little relaxation, then why not try the relaxing Spa and Fitness Centre in the ski station with its heated indoor pool, fabulous saunas and comforting steam room?

Ski passes can be booked online.

People     CHALET ONE

  • "We had the very best time. Chalet One is bursting with character, so cosy and comfortable. It was all such a treat. What a great place it is, and it all ran like clockwork, all so comfortable, buckets of hot water, roaring fire in the evening. A really great week, it ticked all the boxes for all of us. "It was so good, and hopefully we will be back for more.... James and Tom were toying with the idea of sneaking out for a bit of powder if there is a window in the bookings and the snow is right - but for the moment, it is back to reality...."

  • Absolutely fantastic week in Sainte - Foy and Chalet One, a lovely chalet, sunshine (a bit) and snow! Thanks a million guys.

  • "...we found Sainte Foy to be one of the finest resorts that France has to offer; combined with the warm welcoming atmosphere, you can't fail to fall in love with the infinitely fabulous Chalet One. The only problem was, at the end of the week, we just didn't want to go home."

  • The chalet is beautiful! We had an exciting week with lots of snow, having arrived with 'green', and then had deep snow and avalanches! I am a ski novice and so the experience was all new. Many thanks again for sharing your gorgeous chalet.

  • Hello from Canada! We had such a wonderful time this past week - food, snow, atmosphere, comfort... all there in spades! One of our best ever ski holidays! Andy: Chalet One is one of the most beautiful houses we have ever stayed in, and so very cosy. We feel so lucky to have been able to enjoy the whole Sainte-Foy experience :)

  • We had a wonderful week thank you, it couldn't have been better! The chalet is beautiful, a historical gem, and so comfortable. Ste Foy proved to be the kind of resort that I didn't know existed - in my opinion better than any other. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope we can get the family together for another visit. I can't think of a better skiing holiday.

  • I hope you don't mind me emailing you - we are part of the party who stayed at Chalet One for the New Year week. The chalet itself was beautiful and spotlessly presented. The facilities were brilliant - even just the simple fact of endless hot water from our wonderful shower made a big difference. All the little touches - bottles of water, chocolate to take up the slopes, the REN complimentary toiletries - added to our very enjoyable stay.

  • All in all one of the best week's skiing ever - it was seriously cold which meant the snow was as good as I've ever known (including Canada!). On Col Grenier it was thigh deep at the far end - unbelievable. We also found the way down to the village of Le Monal - the top lift had been closed since the last snowfall and there was just one other set of tracks! Sunny, perfect powder, beautiful views and all on our own - it just doesn't get any better. Chalet One was as good as ever - what a great place you have. Terence and Richard were suitably impressed by both the chalet and the skiing and will definitely be back.
