Sainte Foy ski resort has been designed to recreate a typical alpine village. The chalets that nestle amongst the trees in their South-West facing bowl have all been built in traditional style, with pitched roofs and wooden balconies, using local stone and wood.
Sainte Foy offers some of the most stunning views in the Alps. Located close to the Italian border and as well as having its own, little known and uncrowded, ski area, is an excellent base to explore some of France’s classic ski areas, within a thirty minute drive, including Val D’Isere, Tignes and Les Arcs.
