Fancy a Christmas in the Alps?

It’s that time of year again when we start to yearn for the snowy times ahead! We still have self-catered availability for the christmas week (23rd-30th December) in Chalet les Noisettes (sleeps 8-10) for less than £345 per person for a group of 8. Christmas in Sainte Foy is a special time, and Christmas Eve is the main event. Join in for carols in the main square with mince pies and vin chaud, then head over to the other side of the village for the arrival of Father Christmas – abseiling down the side of a chalet!

Spend christmas day opening presents in the morning and skiing our wonderfully quiet slopes, followed by a relaxing afternoon and evening with your nearest and dearest. No more hoping in vain for a white christmas!

If those dates can’t work for you, why not give yourself something to look forward to after all the festivities have ended? We’ve got some bargain weeks up for grabs in early January 2019.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Some Remaining Peak Week Availability For Winter 2018-19!

With all this glorious summer weather it can be hard to think about a winter holiday, but some people are doing just that! Our peak weeks are being snapped up quickly, but we do still have some availability.

Ever thought about spending the festive period in a true winter wonderland? Our larger self-catered property, Chalet les Noisettes, has availability for the christmas week (23rd-30th December) for only £2,745 for up to 10 people – so less than £350 per person for a group of 8! We also have some spaces over the easter holidays, with the week commencing 31st March for £2,695 and the 7th April for a mere £1,995.

For an intimate family getaway over easter, Apartment Chenalet is available for up to 4 people for the 31st March week for £1,195, and the week commencing 7th April for £795.

There’s always such a lovely atmosphere in Sainte Foy over the Easter period – the days are longer (the lifts stay open later!), the weather is more comfortable (perfect for the little ones) and it’s less hectic than the February holidays (not that Sainte Foy ever gets too hectic!).

Do drop us a line if you’re interested, or if you have any questions.

We hope to hear from you soon!

This winter may well go down in history!

Well it’s been a snowy year so far here in Sainte Foy. We’ve seen a couple of huge storms dump biblical amounts of snow in the valley, and there’s yet more falling right now! With the current storm set to continue until at least the weekend, who knows how much we’ll have by next week! Snow depths were only recorded for the Tarentaise valley from 1981 onwards, but we’ve already surpassed the deepest of those recordings for January, and there’s been much talk of the ’30 year storm’ that hit us just over a week ago, dumping up to 2 metres of snow at altitude in a little over 48 hours. The worries of last winter’s snowpack being enough to see out the season are now a distant memory, as we’ve already got more than enough.

We’re are very close to being fully-booked for the rest of the season, but we do have a couple of self-catered gaps to fill, with Apartment Chenalet having the week commencing 18th March available for a mere £675, so as little as £135 per person for a week. We also have Apartment Isere available for the week commencing 3rd March for £1,495, potentially a snip at £187 each. A few catered weeks are still available with the weeks commencing 17th, 24th February, and 3rd March starting at £545 per person.

You’d be silly to miss out on visiting us this season, it’s looking ridiculous up on that mountain!

All the best,

A promising start to Winter 17/18…

Sainte Foy is currently a true winter wonderland! We’ve seen 3 consecutive days of snowfall, with at least another couple of days of the same due in the forecast. Temperatures are bitter, with late night and early mornings showing minus 10ºC and lower on our balcony, and the mercury rarely rising above -5ºC during the day. This is all great news for snow! The snow cannons at resort level having been going full-chat recently, and have built up enough snow to cover both nursery slopes and the pistes back to resort. The snow that has fallen so far is sticking around and there’s no sign of a temperature rise on the cards.

The Arpettaz piste (the big red run off the second lift!) opened for business last weekend, allowing racing teams from across Europe to gain valuable pre-season race practice over the next few weeks. Although it pains us that we’re not allowed to join them on the lifts until 17th December, it certainly is testament to the positive start to Winter 17/18 that we are experiencing. Although we don’t like to draw too much attention to it, this time last year was looking rather…brown. The resort management did a fantastic job of snow-making and almost all of the ski area was open for the first week of the season. However, this year Sainte Foy promises to be looking a lot more wintery and at this rate, the lifts might be opening on a powder day!

We’ve still got availability for the opening week of the seasoncatered accommodation could be yours for £395 per person for 6 nights, or self-catered for £445 for an apartment of up to 4 people! Do get in touch if you’re interested.

Check back in for more snowy updates soon!

Remaining March weeks reduced!

We’re into December and there’s a real buzz around the resort as the final preparations are made before the lifts open in just over 2 weeks! We’re busy putting the finishing touches in place for our guests and will soon be dragging our kit out of the lockers and dusting it off ready for opening day!

If you’re already gagging to get back on the snow, we have both catered and self-catered availability for a short break straight after the New Years week, starting on 3rd January. Guaranteed to be a really quiet period in the resort, this really is our favourite time of the season to be out on the mountain. Think ‘private ski resort’ and you’re pretty much there!

We’ve also just reduced the price of our remaining catered and self-catered March weeks, in both Les Noisettes and Chenalet – Apartment Isere has just sold out! Although that may feel like a while away, now’s a good chance to grab a bargain and give yourself something to look forward to before spring arrives!


See you soon!
