Sainte Foy is ideally situated in the Haute Tarentaise near Tignes, Val d’Isère and Les Arcs. The resort differs from the bustling neighbours and provides a truly unspoiled traditional village with a justified emphasis on great off piste. The resort has been designed to recreate a typical alpine village. The chalets that nestle amongst the trees in their southwest-facing bowl have all been built in traditional style, with pitched roofs and wooden balconies, using local stone and wood. A refreshing change from the concrete jungles found in some of the larger alpine resorts.

It benefits from a microclimate favourable to great snow conditions thanks to its northwest orientation and frequent easterly winds which come over from the Italian alps and generate snow.

The slopes offer long, tree lined runs on snow with fresh powder lasting for days just metres from pisted runs; as well as some of the best off piste and back country on offer in France.
