The best of both worlds.
That’s what you get in Sainte Foy.
This little town, often overlooked as a holiday destination, has a lot to offer.
Ste 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.
It’s neighbouring resorts, such as Tignes and Val d’Isere, are bustling tourist honeypot sites, well known for their skiing. More often than not they’re the regarded as the best resorts in the Tarentaise area. However, what if I told you Sainte Foy was just as good?
Not only does St Foy offer a traditional alpine resort feel, it also offers some amazing ski terrain… If you know where to look. Fortunately, we do!
The Fogliette backcountry run is one of our favourites. After buy propecia no prescription taking the Col de l’Aguille chairlift there’s a short walk to reach the start of this beautiful off-piste run. The north-facing slope has plenty of fun and challenging aspects, including; cliff drops, powder fields and steeps.

However, If this all becomes too much for you, there are two spas to help you unwind, multiple walking routes in the local area, or you could take a trip over to the cheese maker to taste some of the unique cheeses they make.
