AN 8 PERSONS APARTMENT ON 50 M' TO THE SKI SLOPES, NEXT TO THE AUTHENTIC VILLAGE

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Sainte Foy Tarentaise - Sous les Tuiles

A double level apartment on 1.550 m' for an active holiday in winter & summer

The apartment offers 4 bedrooms of which 3 are located under the sloping roof. Also located on this level is a bathroom with a sink and a shower/bath and a separated WC. All beds are provided with a hotel-quality mattress, pillow and duvet. The rooms are spacious enough to put your clothes, personal belongings and if needed, a small bed for a baby.

The 4th sleeping room is located on the level where you enter the apartment. This room has a bunk bed and its own shower. Opposite this room there is the second (separate) WC. You will also find here the living with the open kitchen and a big dining table, which sits 8 to 9. The fire place and the balcony, where you can enjoy the winter sun, makes the apartment complete.

The kitchen is provided with a dishwasser, an oven, a microwave, a refrigerator with 3 freezer trays and an electric stove. A water boiler and a coffee machine (Senseo) is available as well as general kitchenware.

The apartment is located only 50 m' from the ski slopes

The apartment 'Sous les Tuiles' is a two-level apartment, part of the apartment complex 'Hameau des Neiges'. It is located at a height of 1.550 m', driving 2 corners after the centre of Sainte Foy Station. The complex houses eight apartments in different sizes and with their individual style. Sous les Tuiles is the highest located apartment, there for 'living under the tiles' or in French 'Sous les Tuiles'.

From the apartment you can view the first chairlift that brings you to Plan Bois; the start of the ski slopes is on 50 m' from the entrance of the building. The skiing area of Sainte Foy is very child friendly.

The centre of Sainte Foy has a small supermarket to get your daily groceries and local specialities; in the bakery you can buy your fresh French bread. For a paper you go to the news agency close to the ski school.

Active & relaxing in winter: Off course Sainte Foy is attractive for its skiing and snowboarding (on and off piste), but there are more snow activities. A small summary of the possibilities:

• Snow shoe (raquettes) walking - 5 signed tracks are available;

• Telemark skiing - you can rent these skis for a day to try it out;

• Sledging after 16.30 in the village;

• Snow seater - to take up to the pistes;

• Exercise your back- and front flips on a big black 'pillow';

• A dog sledge tour;

• Special off piste tours with a guide of the Ecole Ski de France or a private ski-teacher.

The centre of Sainte Foy has several restaurants and bars, different in pricing and atmosphere. They all offer hospitality and are setup to match the authenric village. The tourist bureau organises constantly different activities for which you can enrol. Visit the 'Bureau du Tourism', located at Sainte Foy next to the stairway that connects the wooden deck and the level lower.

Warm days & cool nights in summer: Sainte Foy is getting more and more prepared for an active summer holiday. In and from the centre of Sainte Foy a number of possibilities are offered:

• marked walking trails - for example to 'le Monal';

• small water places to play;

• play facilities for younger kids;

• sport competitions for kids (primary school);

• guided walking tours with explanation on flora and fauna;

• climbing Col d'Iseran or the Petit Bernard to italy on an bike;

• marked VTR tracks (you can rent bikes in Sainte Foy centre);

• great area to take several 'cols' by motorbike (Col d'Iseran, Col Petite Bernard, Col de la Madeleine)

Every activity related to mountains can be found (within max. an hour drive): rafting, canoeing, hydro speed, via Ferrata, via Cordata, walking tracks, etc)..

Super vakantie gehad in heerlijk appartement

  • Review Submitted: 01-Apr-2014

Wij hebben een heerlijke week gehad in een fantastisch appartement. Alles was wel aanwezig, als je iets zocht. De bedden sliepen goed en het fijne was, dat de bedden niet klein zijn, zoals de meeste Franse bedden.

Het appartement ligt op een goede afstand van de pistes, je skiet zo naar beneden naar de lift en vanaf de piste ben je zo weer bij het appartement.

Al met al een appartement waar we zo weer naar terug zouden gaan.

Excellent week, once again

  • Review Submitted: 10-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
For the second year we rent this apartment in Sainte Foy. And once again, we had a great time. Of course, the good weather conditions help : snow and sun. But, the apartment is very well equipped and we feel quickly as at home. As it is big enough for two families, it would be good to have two parking spots, but it is not a major inconvenient as there are some free parkings in the station.
Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for the review. Two parking spots in the garage, arriving with 2 families or groups would be nice. Renting the apartment in a low-season week might give the opportunity to use a parking spot of one of the other owners, only when this is agreed up front. Kind regards, Saskia

Lovely apartment, charming village!

  • Review Submitted: 27-Feb-2014

Many thanks for the use of your apartment. It was very comfortable, it had everything we needed and was in a great location. We loved the resort of Sainte-Foy Station and we have all said that we'd like to go back there again. We had two big dumps of snow so there was some lovely powder on the slopes and the off-piste areas were great fun. And we never had to wait more than a few minutes for the lift which is amazing for the week that we went (the UK school holidays).
Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for the review. Although the area looks quite small, the posibilities are great. And when you want to go for a day tour, Tignes, Val d'Isere and les Arcs are close by after (within a small hour by car). Kind regards, Saskia

Wonderful stay in Sainte-Foy

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 19-Mar-2013
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2013
We (2 families with 2 kids each) stayed for 1 week in the apartment "Sous les tuiles" in Sainte-Foy and had a very pleasant stay. The apartment is cosy and very well equipped. It's big enough for 8 persons without being tight as in classic ski apartments. We can relax admiring the view on the mountains from the sunny terrasse or in front of the fireplace.. Beds are big and good, and Saskia is very helpful when needed, even at distance.
When we'll come back to Sainte-Foy, we'll try for sure to stay there again.
Owner's Response: Thank you for you review. To make a stay for 2 families even better, a (folded) baby bed with a mattress is available for use. We hope to have you next season. Warm regards, Saskia & Maarten

A great apartment in Ste Foy!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 18-Mar-2013
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2013
We spent a week in the apartment "sous les tuiles" and we really enjoyed it because :
The apartment is great. It's the first time we can live in such a beautiful and well furnished apartment for ski holidays.
Ste Foy is great : we usually go in Val Thorens, wich is the greatest place to ski, but Ste Foy is also great because everything's done for families. We have 3 children and everything is easy in St Foy.
The owners are great : they make it easy for us to deal with the apartment, eveything is noticed in a book, simple access...congratulations Saskia!

François
Owner's Response: Dear François and family,

We are pleased you address the great feature of Sainte Foy, namely a great family ski area and that you have threated our apartment as your own. We love to have families like yours.

We hope to make some changes in the living area (the TV and cupboard corner) so there will be a bit more space and more easy usage.

Warm regards, Saskia & Maarten

The valley of the Isere, with Val d'Isere (30 min. drive from Sainte Foy), Tignes (on 20 min.) and Bourg St. Maurice (on 20 min), offers diverse and sufficient possibilities for an active and relaxing holiday. The Col d'Iseran and the Petit Bernard can be taken by bike, car or motor and create direct access to Italy (in winter these 'cols' are closed).

Golf: In Val d'Isere (30 minutes drive) you'll find an 18 holes golf course.

Ski: In the centre of Sainte Foy Station you'll find several place to rent your skiing - and snowboard gear.

You can view the piste from the apartment and 50 meters out of the front door you can enter the piste, just by gliding down.

Besides the formal slopes there is enough (safe) off piste possibilities to enjoy skiing or snowboarding for the whole family. All slopes ends in the village, so kids can ski, quite quickly, by themselves.

Also you can experience from here the bigger skiing areas, such as les Arcs (start in Villaroger), Tignes and Val d'Isere.
