About Ste Foy
Located in the Tarentaise Valley in the Savoie region of south-eastern France, Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise is just over two hours from Geneva Airport, making it quick and easy to get to. The old village lies between Bourg-Saint-Maurice and Val-d'Isère, and is just a stone’s throw from the famous ski resort, which is located at an altitude of 1,550 metres.
Built on former farmland, Sainte-Foy is a small resort comprising 15 slopes and four chairlifts, along with two magic carpets for beginners. While its groomed pistes tend to be quiet, providing a peaceful skiing experience for beginners and intermediates, it is most famous for its off-piste skiing and snowboarding, enjoyed by more advanced snow sports fans.
The resort offers a vertical drop of just over 1,000 metres from the highest point at the Col de l’Aiguille. It comprises approximately 20 pistes, with options for all ability levels. This includes a green trail that winds through the trees towards the resort and the newer Grande Soliet run, a long, wide, swooping blue trail. Its red runs include the roller-coaster of Les Creux de Formeian, and there is also a groomed black run and three marked off-piste areas. The resort’s off-piste terrain covers the fearsome north face of La Fogliettaz.
Sainte-Foy village is a traditional alpine village, primarily built from stone and wood. Newer buildings have been constructed in the same style to maintain the authentic Savoie architecture, with pitched roofs and wooden balconies throughout. Compared with many other French ski resorts, it remains unspoilt, offering breathtaking views and high-quality snow.
