La Cachette is in the hamlet of La Thuile in the commune of Sainte Foy Tarentaise, at 1250m altitude. La Thuile is a real alpine village both tranquil and superbly located for some of the best skiing in the world. In less than 10 minutes you can be in Sainte Foy Tarentaise, Espace Killy and Les Arcs. La Rosiere is a 20 minute drive and from there you can ski into Italy. The village centres of Val d'Isère and Tignes are also just 20 minutes away.

There is a free shuttle bus all day between La Thuile and Sainte Foy. For other resorts, you need to take the daily bus service, drive or arrange private transport. We are happy to help you to discover and arrange all the options.

La Cachette is a handmade home, decorated simply in soft plaster and wood, full of character and designed for your comfort. Guests' have their own entry via the balcony above the cobbled village street, into the guests' living area. The living area has a wood insert stove, a well-equipped kitchenette with dining table and a comfortable seating area equipped with a tv screen and dvd player, free WiFi access and a selection of books. We are happy to share our selection of games and dvds.

We supply tea, coffee and hot chocolate to which you are invited to help yourselves at any time.

Breakfast includes your choice of tea, coffee, organic orange juice, freshly baked baguettes, croissants, organic eggs, home-made organic muesli, cereals or organic porridge. Tea consists of a pot of tea, hot chocolate and fresh, home-baked scones or cakes.

As a Table d'Hôte we also offer an evening meal catering service, booked separately. You can choose between dinners out, dinners with us at home and take-away main dishes in La Cachette. A full dinner includes an aperitif, a starter, a main course, salad, cheese and desert. A take-away main dish allows you to enjoy a meal in La Cachette, providing side-dishes yourselves. All our produce is local, fresh and high quality. All the food is prepared by us, following a menu we have created after discussion with you. Our nearest restaurants are Sainte Foy village or resort.

About Ms V Santé

I used to be a Londoner but moved here permanently in 2004 after spending a week in Tignes!

Ms V Santé purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Ms V Santé chose Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise

La Cachette is a handmade house, renovated lovingly over time. It is simple, full of character and charm, warm, comfortable and well located. Close to all the best skiing of the Haute Tarentaise, you can choose whether to spend your day in Sainte Foy, Val d'Isere & Tignes, Villaroger or La Rosiere/San Bernardo (Italy!). In summer, the mountains are full of wonders and there is a plethora of activities to choose from, all within easy reach.

What makes this chalet unique

We are a bilingual team who can offer you a warm welcome, a comfortable visit in a peaceful place, tasty food and an in-house ski instructor for conversation, tips and even lessons! We offer plenty of local knowledge and contacts, so you are made really welcome and get the most out of being in France. Our aim is to offer you relaxation through the enjoyment of simple things.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Vicky & Olivier were such fantastic hosts and offer a beautifully cosy chalet with some amazing Savoie food and wine coupled with insider knowledge money cannot buy. I can't wait to go again!
