We are Sue & Andy MacInnes and we have lived in Sainte Foy since buying the Auberge sur la Montagne in 1995. We met at Bath Uni where we both obtained a degree in Business Administration. Our love of skiing first brought us to the French Alps, but we now love the summers here just as much. We have been maanging properties for other owners in Sainte Foy since 2003.

Sue MacInnes purchased this chalet in 1995

The Auberge sur la Montagne was built in 1975 for a successful local restaurateur. He used original materials from two derelict 17th century barns that still stand about 500 metres away from the current site. The bar ceiling is constructed from the floor of the barn and the stone wall in the restaurant is clad in original stone from the barns. He ran it for 5 years and sold up in 1980 to a 60+ year old American lady who had been brought up in Paris during WW2 and wanted to return to France, Since buying the Auberge in 1995 we have lovingly restored it to its present rustic splendour and have been running it as a chalet-hotel ever since.

The Auberge sur la Montagne has stunning views of the surrounding mountains and is situated in a peaceful corner surrounded by fields, yet easily accessible to the mountain resorts of Val d’Isère, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosière as well as Sainte Foy Tarentaise. It boasts a state-of-the-art outdoor hot-tub and sauna.

5 STAR!!!

During a recent trip to Alps for motorcycle tour incorporating advance riding tuition we stayed at Auberge Sur Montagne. The accommodation was excellent, clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly and most helpful. Catering was 5 Star. Would strongly recommend to anyone wishing to stay in this region of France!

We are nestled on the side of the mountain at 1300 metres altitude between Bourg St. Maurice and Val d’Isère in the Tarentaise valley in the French Alps. We are ideally placed for winter ski holidays in the nearby resorts of Sainte Foy Tarentaise, Val d'Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosiere and for walking holidays, cycling holidays and mountain biking in the summer. The stunning flora and fauna of the Vanoise National Park is just a short drive away. We are a comfortable 10-hour drive from the Channel. If you prefer to fly, Geneva and Lyon airports are 3 hours away, Grenoble 2½ hours and Chambery 2 hours. All airports are served by one of the low cost airlines. Eurostar runs direct services from Waterloo or Ashford to Bourg St Maurice during the winter.

Other Activities: white water rafting, canoeing, hydro speeding, climbing, dog sledding

Ski: Sainte Foy offers one of the best value lift passes in the French Alps. You can also ski for a day at each of Val d'Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosiere at half price. Children under 7 ski free at Sainte Foy and are well looked after by the friendly local ski school and crèche (4 and over). The under 3's will be happy spending the day with our fully trained nanny leaving you free to enjoy your time on the slopes.
