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, lovingly renovated over time and situated minutes from the best skiing of the Haute Tarentaise, so 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!

Excellent short break in La Thuile

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous short break here. It is in easy reach of both Geneva and Chambery's airports and free parking for our hire car was no problem. As we walked into the apartment we were given a warm welcome. The woodburner was blasting away providing ample warmth and congenial atmosphere. The owners/ managers Olivier and Vicky were excellent in every way, nothing was too much trouble for them. (they provided all the equipment needed for our 15month old granddaughter and then rushed off to collect our daughter whose flight had been delayed ) The whole apartment was spotlessly clean with all we needed. Vicky's home baking which was waiting for us on our return from the slopes each afternoon was delicious and much appreciated. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated with extremely comfortable beds. The showers had ample hot water . We chose to have dinner each evening provided by our hosts and what a good decision that was! Each evening we were treated to a fabulous menu with excellent wines from the region. We look forward to returning again soon! We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.
