France Ski Accommodation in Sainte Foy, France

Description

Sainte Foy has just had new ski lifts put in to extend the ski area and open up a wealth of new blue and green runs on the western side of the mountain. The resort is tipped to become one of the most exclusive ski resorts in France. Of all our resorts, Sainte Foy is really quite different, in fact it is a bit of a gem! If you know much about skiing then you will have read about the fantastic pistes and the virgin snow quality of Sainte Foy.

Often referred to as the “Jewel in the Crown” Sainte Foy is surrounded by the world’s most famous resorts: Tignes, Les Arcs and Val D’Isere. All are within a 15 minute drive away. There are about 150 hectares of slopes in Sainte Foy, and what there is, is excellent quality and totally crowd free. It's especially ideal for families.

Apres

The size of Sainte Foy as a village means that it doesn’t have a huge selection when it comes to apres ski. If you’re looking for a lively apres ski scene, then you will want to look further afield to nearby resorts of Val d’Isere and Tignes. If you are happy to have a more relaxed atmosphere then there are a handful of bars which will do the trick.

Pitchouli bar is Ste Foy’s main apres ski spot. The bar has a large sun terrace out the front which is great for winding down with a refreshing drink after a day on the slopes. They regularly have live music evenings too.

Iceberg Piano bar is the other popular apres haunt in resort and can be found close to the ESF meeting point. They have a happy hour each day between 5-6pm and host a variety of live music evenings, ranging from reggae to folk to rock.


Eating out

St Foy has a limited number of restaurants as the resort itself is very small and still hasn’t really been discovered by the package holiday operators. With less than 20 restaurants to choose from both on and off the mountain, take a look below at a selection of our highlights...

Of the four main restaurants in resort, the Maison a Colonnes is a traditional Savoyarde affair. The style is very rustic, as you would expect from a listed farmhouse built in the 16th century, but with the log fire and there are fantastic views of the mountain it’s great for both lunch and dinner. The large sun terrace is perfect for parents who want to sit back and soak up the sun whilst keeping an eye on the children who can play on the nearby magic carpet.

If you are looking for something on the smart side, La Bergerie is a good choice. Whilst it’s quite similar to La Maison, it does have a slightly more formal atmosphere. The restaurant has a cosy bar with a fireplace and the menu is decorated with Savoyard dishes presented in a modern style. This is the place to go for a good raclette! Produce is fresh, sourced locally and generously portioned.

On the hill, Les Brevettes rates highly amongst previous guests. With a varied menu everyone should be happy! Adults can enjoy more sophisticated dishes of Savoyarde style whilst the kids can munch on more child-friendly platters of spaghetti bolognese. This restaurant is usually packed full of skiers, but even when it’s busy the waiting staff are friendly and efficient.



Activities

A small resort not far from Tignes and Val d’Isere, Sainte Foy still brings a good variety of non-ski activities for all the family.

If you would like to explore the beautiful mountain scenery at a calmer pace you can hire out some snow shoes and have your own mountain guide show you around the back country, away from the busy pistes. Ski-Set does a good deal on snow shoes and the whole thing will cost somewhere between 12€ - 30€.

Ski biking is a great alternative to skiing or snowboarding and with a two hour initiation costing about 30€, it’s a great way to spend an afternoon. Learn how to control the ski bike or for the experienced biker, you can even take it to the park and learn how to do a few jumps!

For non-skiers looking to just relax, there is the Fermes de Sainte Foy Spa and wellbeing centre where you can go for anything from a quick treatment to a full pampering session. Prices range from 45€ - 110€ and can make a perfect gift for that special someone during your holiday.

As well as the wealth of things to do on the resort itself, only a short drive away are a whole host of adventurous activities such as Ice Diving, Quad Biking and Heliskiing – perfect for an action packed holiday to rival any James Bond film!

Childcare

Sainte Foy is a quaint and traditional alpine village which sits in the shadows of its larger more well known neighbours of La Rosiere and the Espace Killy (Val d’Isere and Tignes).

Its short transfer time and quiet slopes make it ideal for families with young children, however the off-slope entertainment is lacking, purely because this resort has not quite hit the British family skiing market.
If you have a car, the nearest public swimming pool is just down the road in Bourg St Maurice approximately 15 minutes drive down the mountain.

If you want to try out activities like skating, husky sledding or bowling you will have to venture further afield to the likes of La Rosiere or the Espace Killy.
