Once a little known mecca for powder skiers only, Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise (otherwise known as Ste Foy) is a commune in Savoie in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France and was only constructed as a ski resort in 1990. Now it is a well established favourite as a snow sure and family friendly ski destination. Unlike many purpose-built resorts in France, it is easy on the eye. All the buildings are ‘chalet style’ most are clustered around or near the bottom of the slopes. This is a pleasant place to be, there is no traffic, everything is on your doorstep. The ski area, although small, has a good range of slopes for all abilities. The off-piste is highly regarded, some lift accessible and some further afield with a guide. The après-ski is quiet, it’s not that kind of place, however some excellent dining can be had in the area. There are numerous chalets – some pretty big – and apartments to rent, and a couple of good hotels.
What about properties in Sainte-Foy to buy? To us, it is astonishingly good value given that you have some great skiing on your doorstep, and a choice of property for sale in the ski resorts of Val d’Isère, La Rosière and Les Arcs/Paradiski all of which are under 30 minutes drive. A small 2-3 bedroom apartment in Val d’Isère offered by local real estate agents will buy you a 5+ bedroom chalet here. Buying Sainte Foy property fits our other key criteria, snow sure and easy access to the slopes.
