Sainte-Foy Statistics - Introducing Skimiles®

Why do we favour one ski resort over another? What makes us try a new place, and go back? It is a complicated question - is it the culture, the ambience, or are there other more tangible factors?

Does the skiing suit me? Are the pistes spacious or crowded, is it big enough, does it have lots of groomed runs, are the lifts efficient and comfortable, can I be sure of snow?

Alpine Property intelligence is proud to join with Montenius Consult to present a new way to answer these questions – which is factual, unbiased and unopinionated.

Sainte-Foy Information & Property Market Summary

Once a little known mecca for powder skiers only, Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise (otherwise known as Ste Foy) is a commune in the Savoie department 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 family 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 still 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.
