Sainte Foy

The ‘Jewel’ and the ‘Best Kept Secret’ of the Alps

Situated within easy driving distance of Tignes, Val d’Isere, Les Arcs and La Rosiere, you may think of Sainte Foy as a great base to sample the world class resorts of the Tarantaise. However, as convenient as that may be, Sainte Foy offers unparalleled off piste riding, as well as beautifully groomed pistes.

Designed to look like a typical Alpine village you will find beautiful wood and stone fronted chalets overlooking stunning views to the South West. The pistes are quiet and well kept, ideal for families and those learning to ski. For more adventurous guests Sainte Foy offers un-pisted ‘Natur’ runs great for challenging more advanced skiers and riders. For those powder hunters the North Face of the Foglietta is a world renowned off-piste trail, as well as the Col Granier which both bring you to the small hamlet of La Mazure, a 15 minute bus ride away – a free shuttle is provided by the resort. Sainte for offers many other off=piste trails and you will find it easy to find a skilled and enthusiastic guide to show you the best spots!
