About Sainte Foy

It’s oh so quiet… But oh so charming, and oh… the skiing. Sainte Foy is a pretty mountain hamlet in the Haute Tarentaise, built in the late 1990s and sympathetically and organically added to since then.

Popular with families and those who are here for the powder rather than the Jaeger bombs, this is a luxury ski holiday resort that is often overlooked but then that is its real charm – so don’t go telling everyone!

For beginners and little ones, there are good nursery slopes and a great ski school. When you want to move on, there are plenty of blue slopes as well as lots of accessible off-piste areas. The uncrowded nature of Sainte Foy makes it perfect for those just building confidence on skis on a luxury ski holiday.

Those who want to see lots of piste action have the option of travelling to the bigger ski areas nearby. Val d’Isere & Tignes for the Espace Killy and Les Arcs for the Paradiski areas are only a short drive away. But powder hounds will love what Sainte Foy has to offer on its own doorstep and with excellent heli-skiing just over the border in Italy, no one will ever get bored here.

Nightlife is quiet but friendly here, and if you’re travelling with little ones or are all about the early nights in the comfort of your luxury ski chalet, a week in Sainte Foy would suit you brilliantly.

Getting There:

The closest airport to Sainte Foy is Chambery, approximately 1h30m drive away with Geneva about 2h30m/3h away. Bourg St. Maurice train station is also only about 20m drive.

Best places to eat and drink in Sainte Foy

Nightlife is quiet and just a little more sophisticated than some of the bigger resorts. There aren’t hundreds of bars and restaurants but what’s there is good should you wish the venture out of your luxury ski chalet.

We like Black Diamond, a bar, restaurant and apres-ski venue at the foot of the La Bataillette piste.

For traditional Savoyard dishes such as magret of duck and Reblochons en croute, try Le Perce Neige, just outside the centre at Viclaire.

Sainte Foy has a good choice of mountain eateries ideal for lunch, too.

Best time to visit Sainte Foy

Sainte Foy is open for business from mid-December to mid-April.

What we love about Sainte Foy

We love the peace, the lack of queues… and the untracked snow, often until quite late in the skiing day.
