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 home, full of character and charm, warm, comfortable and well located at the hub of some of France's best skiing! 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.

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!

Beautiful accommodation, fantastic food and a very warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic stay in this beautifully renovated chalet. A wonderful welcome by all the family, and a fantastic dinner on arrival. All the food must be recommended (breakfast included), but the cheese board was of particular note! The room was pristine, and the bed wonderfully comfortable. A highly recommendable place to stay!

Un bijou dans une cachette !

  • 5 of 5

Samedi 5 mars 2015. Notre semaine de vacances se termine. Cette " cachette" tout confort est un petit bijou ou l'on se sent si bien ! Le salon, les chambres avec leurs douches respectives , le coin cuisine , la cheminée....tout est organisé pour que l'on se sente chez soi,chacun ayant son intimité, avec un accueil chaleureux de Victoria et Olivier , aussi discrets qu'efficaces . Ce sont des hôtes merveilleux qui ont fait de notre séjour un moment inoubliable . Idéalement situé par rapport aux stations de ski ( à 6 min en voiture ou en navette gratuite de la station la plus proche!) , la cachette est également l'endroit parfait ( et toujours impeccable, le ménage étant fait quotidiennement en notre absence !) pour se reposer après l'effort devant un délicieux goûter, chaque jour différent, préparé par Victoria. Nous y retournerons avec un immense plaisir !
