We were absolutely delighted with the apartment and the St Foy ski resort. The apartment was warm, cosy, clean and well appointed and its location could not have been better. We were right above the boulangerie and ski hire shop. The ski locker and underground parking were directly under the apartment too which made things really easy. It was great to come back from the slopes (via the apres bar!) and jump into a hot bath before relaxing with a DVD. We skied one day at Val D'Iserre and another at Les Arcs but really the St Foy slopes were sufficient to keep my two teenagers entertained and the lift passes were cheaper. This was the best ski apartment we have stayed in and the most convenient. (A word of warning if you are driving, the satnav postcode will take you to the St Foy Tarantaise resort a couple of miles below. You need to proceed up to St Foy Station and the apartment is in F Block on the left just past the Premier Neige office. We had trouble finding it at first as there is no sign for apartment chocolat on the mail boxes.
If you have small children this could be the ideal resort for convenience and great slopes to learn to ski on. You certainly will not be disappointed with Chalet Chocolat, it is a real gem. We will certainly return.

Apartment:- very convenient, right in the centre of the village, everything in very easy reach - well equiped (suggest taking some additional DVDs) - owner offers discount for repeat customers - includes underground parking.
Resort:- Small sympathetic resort, offering something for everyone, from beginner slopes to tree-lined runs to off-piste - non existant lift queues - most visitors seem to be British - a real "gem" - great restaurants (La Bergerie is a "must") - cheaper than bigger resorts - close to mega-resorts of Val D'Isere etc (Sainte Foy lift pass gives discounts in these resorts) - I would suggest shopping in the supermarkets in Bourg (as supermarket in resort is expensive)

Apartment Chocolat has an ideal central location very close to Ski Lifts, Bars and Shops. It is well equiped with very comfortable beds and a luxury bath to soothe aching limbs after a day on the slopes. We had a great holiday and happy to recommend this apartment.

We spent a lovely week here in January 2009. Weather was perfect and the apartment was great. It was very warm and cosy and right in the heart of everything. The beds were very comfortable and there was always plenty of hot water to have a soak after a day on the slopes. The scenery was spectacular and the ski school was very good also a good bar a few yards away. Would recommend a holiday for all the family.

Hearty apartment in wooden and mountain style. Its mountain style with wooden rooms makes the apartment very warm and hearty.
Fully equipped and really well situated close to the resort centre

Highly recommended apartment, right in the centre of the resort. My family had a great time playing games and relaxing after a few hard days skiing. Extremely comfortable and very well equiped. Exactly as advertised!
