This holiday has already departed.
Sainte Foy couldn't be more different to its neighbors - big name resorts of Les Arcs, Val d'Isère, La Rosière and Tignes. Not a bustling metropolis, but instead a truly unspoiled traditional village with a justified emphasis on great off piste.
Nestled in the Tarentaise valley, developed since 1990, the resort has developed a reputation as an charming,quiet resort with minimal lift queues and quiet slopes. Don't expect much in the way of rowdy apres, though there are a couple of highly regarded bars and restaurants that suit the more laid back attitude of the village and build in a traditional Savoyard style. While sometimes ungenerous described as four lifts and eight pistes, this count be further from the truth. The slopes offer long, steep 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. The slopes are only busy when the weather has closed access to the neighboring resorts at higher altitude.
