Sainte Foy is in the hearty of the Tarentaise Valley, and Vanoise National Park. For skiing, Sainte Foy has been voted number 1 in the world by the Sunday Times, describing it as 'an uncrowded gem'. Within 5 minutes are the mega resorts of Les Arcs and La Plagne, with Tignes and the Espace Killy just 8 minutes by car. The charming town of Bourg St Maurice with its weekly market is 15 minutes away. There is a swimming lake 20 mins away as well as full leisure facilities in Tignes and Bourg St Maurice. The Italian border is very close by and can be crossed in the summer via the Petit St Bernard pass - this is a stunning drive into the Aosta valley and the Italian side of Mont Blanc. Chamonix is located just the other side of the tunnel. Day trips to Annecy are a must with its charming town (known as The French Venice) and the amazing lake with swimming beaches, sailing, fishing, etc. Also nearby in the summer are some fabulous golf courses (Les Arcs, La Rosiere, Tignes).
