The small hamlet of Sainte-Foy Tarentaise has been described as the "best-kept secret in the Alps". The ski station is set on steep north-west facing slopes with superb views.
It 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 building - 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. And no accommodation is 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, heliskiing (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.
