Ideal location for family ski holidays and summer activity holidays

Chalets sur la Montagne are delightful, wood- and stone-built Savoyard ski chalets and apartments, nestled on the mountainside at Sainte Foy ski resort. They have spectacular views across the Tarentaise valley to the Aiguille Rouge and Mont Pourri mountains, and are just a short walk from the pistes. As they are private homes, the properties have a very high quality of furnishings and equipment throughout with plenty of storage space. There's very efficient electric heating and plenty of hot water. A good selection of books, videos, and games are provided. Please note that the chalets are strictly NON-SMOKING and pets are only accepted at Mercer for an additional charge.

Ski schools and children: Ski schools: The ESF ski school is like many other things in Ste Foy: small, friendly and intimate! The instructors in the ESF have a great record of successful teaching of our friends, family and guests. We can also arrange off-piste instruction and guiding.

Children: The Chalets sur la Montagne properties are a particularly suitable base for a holiday with children being perfectly placed to ski in probably the most child friendly resort in the world: Ste. Foy! Ski passes for the under 7’s are free.

The well equipped crèche takes those over 3 years and can link up with the ski school so that your children can be entertained and cared for from 9AM to 5PM should you so wish. Ste Foy is a resort where parents can ski with the peace of mind that their children are in good hands.

There is an exceptionally good state registered child minder who will take the under 3’s who lives 5 minutes drive away from the Chalet or we can arrange for childcare at the Chalet.

Non skiers: Non-skiers are well catered for with facilities for cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, dog-sledding, ice-climbing, ice-fishing, ice-skating and swimming nearby. Or why not just relax on the sunny balcony at the Chalet, and leave the strenuous activities to others. Shoppers will enjoy a stroll around the shops and weekly markets at the major resorts.

Summer: There are numerous walking and mountain bike routes in the area, to suit all levels of ability. In the peak summer months of July and August, many of the ski lifts in the neighbouring resorts of Les Arcs, Val d’Isère and Tignes are open to cyclists and walkers to allow access to the high mountains without the hard work of climbing them! For walkers, we are also very close to the Vanoise National Park with its unique and varied flora and fauna.

In addition to walking and mountain biking, there are numerous other activities available within easy reach, including river sports (canoeing, white water rafting, hydro speeding, cannoning), skiing, golf, horse riding, tennis, fishing, bird watching and rock climbing. Cultural interests include the Baroque church trail, the local Vins de Savoie vineyards, concerts in a variety of venues and many local fêtes which take place throughout the summer.

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.
