Sainte Foy Information

Ste Foy Tarentaise came into being in 1990 and is only a few miles from such big names as Tignes, Val d’Isère and Les Arcs. There’s no high-rise buildings in St Foy, just chalet-style buildings that nestle amongst the trees and incorporate local Savoyard features such as round stone columns and stone-lab roofs.

Sainte Foy is a seamless blend of old and new created to offer guests comfort, space and refined luxury - a refreshing change from the concrete jungles found in some of the larger Alpine resorts nearby.

Sainte Foy Tarentaise has some very good eating places. From Alpine chalets preparing dishes “like grandma used to make” to haute-cuisine restaurants; there’s something for all tastes. The small selection of bars and shops is just enough for a successful Sainte Foy ski holiday. All Sainte Foy apartments are not far from the lifts or nursery slope.

Non skiers in Ste Foy can indulge in dog sledding, superb guided snowshoe walks to many local hamlets, snow biking, heli-skiing (in Italy, just across the border) and paragliding.

There’s a bus service in Sainte-Foy ski resort to the surrounding Sainte Foy Tarentaise villages, but from a practical point of view a car is recommended if you want to travel outside the main Ste-Foy resort.

Sainte-Foy was recently rated by Peak Retreats’ clients amongst the top 10 resorts they would recommend to a friend. And it has been voted one of the top resorts for families too.

Peak Retreats offers a range of Sainte Foy accommodation options. All of Sainte Foy's ski apartments have been hand-picked and are of a very high standard (3 & 4*), providing the ideal base for a Sainte Foy ski holiday.
