Families & Childcare


Sainte Foy is the perfect resort for children with a gentle, family-orientated feel to the whole village.


The ESF ski school is renowned as one of the best in the area and the quiet, gentler slopes are perfect for those still learning to ski. Snocool are also fantastic with the little ones, and although they are a bit more expensive, the class sizes are smaller. There are two nursery slopes in the village, both with ‘magic carpets’ to get you up the hill and one has a designated sledging area for the kids to let off some steam!

During the school holidays there are some great events and activities laid on for families including torch-lit descents, snowman building competitions, magic shows and more.



We can help with arranging private childcare for your holiday through a great local company, Snowlittle, their website is: www.snowlittle.com

The nannies can come to look after the children in your accommodation and take them for a play out in the snow. Alternatively, there is a creche a short walk away, which is available for short or all-day care. Information on this can be found here.

The ESF ski school can now provide lessons, meals and childcare in one package in partnership with the Sainte Foy creche. Details are on their website.

If you wish to pop out for drinks in the evening, we can also provide details of local english-speaking babysitters.
