Fantastic holiday - both location and chalet
We stayed in Hirondelles for a week with my young children and my parents over Christmas.
We all had a fantastic time, it was just a shame the Alps didn't have much snow! We still managed to ski every day and it was a really brilliant place for my 3 year old to have lessons for the first time.
The chalet was brilliant, just what we wanted and the ski in/out location perfect with little ones to consider. The option of having catered 'take away' meals or fully catered evenings was perfect for us and gave us a really nice mix. Our catered christmas lunch was delicious and a real treat.
We have already recommended to various people and will be back ourselves!
Thank you very much!
Thank you Georgie. We're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Chalet Les Hirondelles and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
We are nestled on the side of the mountain at 1550 metres altitude, close to the slopes and resort centre at Sainte Foy in the Tarentaise valley in the French Alps. We are ideally placed for winter ski holidays at Sainte Foy Tarentaise and the nearby resorts of 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 as well as the national carriers. Eurostar runs direct services from Waterloo or Ashford to Bourg St Maurice during the winter.
Other Activities: Dog sledding, white water sports, canyoning
Ski: Winter Sports: All our chalets are situated in the heart of the small ski resort of Sainte Foy Tarentaise which gives you the most fantastic choice of downhill winter sports! Some guests choose to ski a different resort each day; others choose to ski the world famous Val d'Isère - Tignes circuit without paying world famous resort prices or enduring world famous resort commercialisation!
You are just a 100m walk from the off-piste paradise of Sainte Foy: it's uncrowded and the powder can last untracked for days. It’s also a perfect place for children and beginners as well as for a relaxing ski holiday away from the crowds. You can drive to the Espace Killy in 20 minutes at Tignes Les Brévières and to the Les Arcs area in 15 minutes at Villaroger.
Lift Passes: Sainte Foy offers one of the cheapest lift passes in the French Alps. It also allows you a half-price day pass at Val d'Isère, Tignes and Les Arcs and La Rosiere.
