A very comfortable self-catering, two bedroom ski apartment sleeping 4 situated in a Savoie style chalet. The 1st floor apartment is in the centre of the resort and only 100m from the ski slopes. The local creche, bar, restaurants, supermarket, bakers & ski-hire are all on your doorstep ! The apartment is fully equipped with an open plan kitchen (with rotisserie oven, Gaggia coffee maker, dishwasher, washing machine & dryer), dining / living area with balcony and views of the mountains and Tarentaise valley. The flat has 1 double bedroom (with ensuite shower), 1 twin bedroom, a spacious bathroom and separate toilet. The ski locker is downstairs and parking is available at the door. There is ample wardrobe and hanging space for everyone's clothing. Additionally there is Wifi internet access, hifi CD system, board games, local guides, and everything you require for a memorable stay.
Our first experience of DIY skiing holiday and our first with our 2 children. The pre trip info from Charles was thorough and easy to understand. The location of the property and the facilities were excellent so much so that we shall repeat the experience next year (can't get a better review than that)!
As a family of four, we had a great time in Ste Foy. No queues at the ski lifts or the supermarket, and the flat was extremely welcoming to come back too at the end of day's skiing. Comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen with a large fridge, a proper oven and a welcome bottle of very good red wine on arrival! We will definitely back to make the most of the skiing again.
Great location with only a few steps away from the piste. In our experience best value for money in a top resort. We have been skiing for many years within the Savoie region and love off piste skiing and the backcountry. Sainte Foy has all that and this year conditions were near perfect. Staying in a comfortable apartment with all mod cons made our holiday very enjoyable. We would definitely recommend this property and no doubt will be back.
Just returned from an excellent week in St.Foy. The apartment was very comfortable and as described. Location in resort could not be better. St.Foy's ski area still had good snow in April and some lovely runs. We used the village as a base, and skiied Tignes, Les Arcs, Val D'Isere & La Rosiere in 6 days! Roads were deserted and access extremely easy. 4 reasonably priced restaurants within 100m and the food/service was very good. Bakers/supermarket/ski hire could not be closer.
Ambience in the village was also very relaxed. I could not think of a better resort to take a young family skiing.
For experienced skiers, the access to several massive ski areas so easily, was just fantastic. My 19 & 20 year olds were seriously impressed.
5 inches of snow the day we left! Well, nothings perfect!
We liked this apartment because of:
the personal touch, with a complete set of household goods
the location, near the skilift and the shops
and above all because of the friendliness of the owners.

Lovely apartment - photos dont do it justice. Beautifully appointed as owners own apartment so not at all like the usual rental apartments. Literally just a couple of minutes from the ski lift and shops. Perfect if you want everything on your doorstop. Would definitely recommend.
Sainte Foy Ski Station lies in alpine forests and offers some of the best views in the Alps. Located near the Italian border it has an uncrowded ski area for both beginners and experts. There is great skiing, few queues and uncrowded pistes. Accompanied by a guide you can explore off piste with great scenery or visit the village of Le Monal with its spectacular views to the glaciers on Mont Pourri. It is a good base to visit some of France's classic ski resorts with Val d'Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosiere/La Thuile all within 20-30 minutes car drive. The town of Bourg St Maurice is just 15 mins away for local shopping and rail / bus connections. For non-skiers there are walks, excursions and activities to enjoy. In the summertime, Ste Foy is equally appealing for walkers, climbers, mountain bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts with many local walks and day-outings to La Sassiere, La Gurraz and the Chapel St Pierre within easy reach.
Ski: Saint Foy is a secluded resort with good skiing for all levels of skier. It is famed for off-piste skiing but has plenty of good BLUE and RED slopes for beginners and intermediate skiers. You can return to the village on either BLUE or GREEN runs. The ski area has expanded since 2008 with new lifts and the creation of new pistes. The resort is seriously under-used so you do not find lift queues or crowded pistes. One-third of the ski area is below the tree line with the remainder above the tree line. The views are spectacular and sunshine on the slopes is good. There are 3 cafes on the runs once you leave the village. There is an ESF ski school which caters for all grades of skiers.
