The small and enchanting village of Sainte-Foy Tarentaise is made up of cosy traditional stone and wood chalet-style buildings. The resort is part of the Savoie region and sits in the Tarentaise valley at a base altitude of 1550 metres.
Situated 4km off the main road between Bourg St Maurice and Val d'Isere, the nearby resorts of Val d'Isere and Les Arcs are easily accessible by car making this a perfect base for exploring.
We feel Sainte-Foy an ideal resort for families, being smaller and less expensive than its big name near neighbours.
Sainte-Foy has a reputation for incredible off-piste skiing but there's also a great selection of greens and reds making it a great place to learn in an unintimidating environment. The resort would be ideal for a mixed group of novices and experts - the experts can enjoy the powder while the novices learn their turns
Skiing in Sainte-Foy Tarentaise
The terrain in Sainte-Foy Tarentaise is varied, unexpectedly challenging and is almost entirely in gladded runs. Perhaps most famous for its off-piste skiing, access to virgin powder is just a few metres from the pistes.
There's 35kms of marked pistes and these tend to be uncrowded which also means less time waiting in lift queues!
"If you like traditional French resorts and small lift queues, then Sainte-Foy Tarentaise is a great option. Sitting right in the heart of the Vanoise national park it has stunning scenery and though the ski area is reasonably compact, the off-piste is superb and when the likes of nearby Tignes are skied out you can often get fresh tracks in Sainte-Foy days after a dump."
The small hamlet of Sainte-Foy Tarentaise has been described as the "best-kept secret of the Alps". The new ski station is set on steep north-west facing slopes with superb views. It came into being in 1990 and is only a stone's throw away from the big names: Tignes, Val d'Isere and Les Arcs. There is no high rise, just chalet style buildings that nestle amongst the trees and incorporate local Savoyard features such as round stone columns and stone slab roofs.
It 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, so from alpine chalets preparing dishes like grandma used to make to haute-cuisine restaurants there is something for all tastes. The small selection of bars and shops in Ste Foy 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 the many little hamlets, snow biking, Heli-skiing (in nearby Italy) and paragliding.
There is a bus service in Sainte Foy ski resort to the surrounding Sainte Foy Tarentaise villages, but it is recommended to have a car from a practical point of view if you want to travel outside the main Ste Foy resort.
