Sainte Foy Ski Resort & Transfer Guide

Sainte Foy is a small ski resort in French Alps, but with the big reputation – for home-like atmosphere, good-quality snow and a lot off-piste tracks that can attract skiers away from Val d’Isere.

There have been ski lifts here since 1990, but what’s really put the resort on the map has been a big surge in new building over the last two or three or years. Now there’s accommodation to match the quality of the slopes. The resort is growing quite quickly and now boasts some top quality accommodation as most of the chalet is brand new and purpose built with skiing in mind - plenty of bathrooms & storage, great views across to Mont Pourri with underfloor heating, saunas, jacuzzis and most are less than a 100m to the slopes.

Sainte Foy is an excellent base for those with a car to visit some of France's classic ski areas, within a thirty-minute drive, including Val d'Isere, Tignes and Les Arcs as well as the cross-border French/Italian region of La Rosiere/La Thuile.

In Saine Foy, there aren’t such opportunities for entertainment that you find in Val d’Isere or Meribel, for example. But here you will not find such crowded pistes, hustle and bustle either, unlike at the big alpine ski resorts.

Ski Resort Location

Sainte Foy is situated in the French Alps, near the Italian border, at an altitude from 1550 m to 2650m. It is a nice relaxed resort with access to great skiing and snowboarding of all levels.

At the same time, it’s more convenient than big nearest resorts with the local lift ticket (and everything else) far cheaper than most of its neighbours.

The resort of Sainte Foy saved its authentic charm and local architecture, again in contrast to many of its better-known neighbour resorts, so now is a good time to spend your holiday there.
