Discover Sainte Foy

Newest among the Tarentaise resorts, Sainte Foy is a hidden paradise destined to charm families, ski enthusiasts, and nature lovers in search of charm and tranquility.

The enchanting atmosphere of this boutique-sized resort seamlessly blends the traditional architecture of the Tarentaise Valley (stone, wood, and slate) with modern and inviting comfort.

The trails winding through larch and spruce forests provide an ideal learning environment for both young and old.

At higher altitudes, upon reaching the Aiguille chairlift, the scenery transforms, revealing imposing glaciers. Off-piste aficionados will be captivated by the seemingly boundless playground, especially considering the snow remains fresh and untracked long after the last snowfall.

In Sainte Foy, the latest gem in the Tarentaise resorts, skiing is stress-free, with no wait times at the lifts, but shh, it's our little secret!
