Sainte Foy Ski Resort Guide
- Acres of ski:-
- Terrain Parks:0
Sainte Foy is a small resort that offers intimate skiing with the emphasis on off-piste but with several giant resorts nearby. Sainte Foy is only really busy when skiers from the big resorts descend to the sheltered tree-lined slopes when storms have closed lifts higher up. There is powder just yards from the pistes at Sainte Foy which lasts for days thanks to the northwest facing slopes. Take a guide to explore one of the renowned off-piste routes to the deserted farming hamlet of Le Monal, or the infamous 1700 m vertical descent of the north face of Fogliettaz. The nearest airport to Sainte Foy is in Chambery.

Love Sainte Foy; perfect for families! This is our second unbelievable trip with Premiere Neige and we cannot think of one thing we would change. We stayed in Grand Solliet with our 3 children and our friends (family of 4) and everything was brilliant from start to finish. Amazing food all week, with 4 course meals and canapes, and top class wines to boot. Our host and chef were lovely and really went out of their way to make sure everything was going well for us all week; such a credit to Premiere Neige. For us a big part of a skiing holiday is childcare and this ski company definitely come out on top. We put our kids into afternoon childcare in the creche which meant that we could have a bit of time to ourselves on the slopes during the day and the kids could go to ski school, which was all very handily organised on our behalf. (Also, before we arrived we were able to book massages & transfers via the Concierge Service too.) The creche is fantastic, much better and more personal than other ski creches we've used, The nannies are great with the kids, making sure they have the right balance of rest and play, getting the kids outside for sledging, treasure hunts, etc and also time to relax, paint etc indoors.
One of the reasons we booked Grand Solliet was because some of friends stayed in it last year and spoke about the quality of the rooms and the games room. This was a great space for the kids as they could play games, watch DVDs and it was their own little chill-out zone. Our chill out time was spent in the hot tub before delving into a big slice of the afternoon cake, everyday!
Loved every minute of the holiday and the skiing was fantastic too, by the way. Plenty of lovely slopes for the girls (intermediates) and the boys disappeared into the off-piste most days which they still can't stop talking about! We've already booked again for next year and are thinking of fitting in another cheeky self-catered break with Premiere Neige at the end of this season too.
