This comfortable and superbly-equipped apartment is located in a small block of apartments a short walk from the centre of the Savoyard village of Sainte Foy Tarentaise.

The apartment is furnished and equipped to a very high standard, with quality appliances, flat screen TV, DVD player and HiFi. The open plan kitchen / dining / living room has galley kitchen with dishwasher, full-size Bosch oven / grill, radiant 4-ring hob, Nespresso machine with frother and fridge / freezer.

Why Ian Locke chose Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise

We loved the location in the village of Ste Foy Tarentaise rather than the ski station, as it's an authentic, friendly Savoyard village, and offers the benefit of having the major resorts of Les Arcs, Tignes / Val d'Isere and La Rosiere all within 20 minutes' drive, whilst still being only 15 minutes from Sainte Foy itself.

A fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We can't praise this place highly enough. Ian could not do enough for us before our arrival, answering all our questions before we even thought of them. The apartment was immaculate, well furnished and comfortable (with the wifi standing up to the rigours of several teenagers) The location could not be faulted, just a few minutes drive from our new favourite resort sainte Foy. We also had a day in La rosiere and a day in les Arc, both of which were only a short drive away. We will definitely be returning.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Kate! Glad you liked the apartment - and yes, Sainte Foy is a very special little place! Until next year then hopefully (though very nice in summer too ;-)

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

4 of us (2 couples) stayed a week in the apartment in early January and couldn't have had a better time. Although the easiest way to get there from the airport is by car, it means that you have the ability to get to a handful of ski resorts, all within 20 minutes or so, which is great for a varied and interesting holiday. The apartment itself has indoor parking which is especially good when it's cold out and provides piece of mind too. The apartment is equipped with absolutely everything that you could need, from a good set of cooking knives and pots and pans to a whole selection of board games, dvds and an excellent hi-fi system, all of which ensured we felt right at home. Everything is beautifully looked after and very comfortable indeed, so we felt like we were in a home away from home from the second we stepped through the door.

The detail in the welcome pack is remarkable and answered every question we had through the week, meaning we felt like we had local tip-offs for things to do near by as well as all questions answered about the apartment itself.

All in all, the 4 of us had a magnificent week in an excellent apartment and would go back in a heartbeat.

Well equipped , convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Super apartment - caffeine addicts liked the Nespresso coffee machine . Loved the resort of Ste Foy . It is small but the snow was great and the slopes were almost empty. So all in all a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much Mark, glad you enjoyed your stay. (and yes, the empty slopes were what attracted us to Ste Foy in the first place - I'm done with queueing!!)

Excellent Holiday at Silver Fox Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Silver Fox Apartment in Ste Foy Tarentaise. We loved the apartment, by far the best we've stayed in during many years of family ski trips. Very clean, comfortable and well laid out. Ian Locke, the owner, did everything possible to make the arrangements and arrival as easy as possible. The village is a bit of a drive from the slopes, but it's on the Navette bus route. If you've got transport it's within easy range of three major ski areas, as well as Ste Foy Station itself, where the skiing is excellent. Covered parking was particularly handy. The village itself has retained much of its original quiet Alpine character.

Nearest Ski
2 Kilometres
Les Arcs


Being located in Ste Foy Village means that you have easy access to a total of FIVE major ski areas - Paradiski (Les Arcs, La Plagne), La Rosiere, Tignes, Val d'Isere and Sainte Foy Tarentaise - all within 15 minutes.

You are therefore pretty much guaranteed of being able to find yourself somewhere to ski, regardless of whether it's a good or bad year for snow.

Ski: The skiing at Ste Foy Tarentaise starts from the ski resort at 1550m, with slopes extending up to 2620m. In total, there are only 35km of pistes, although the key attraction of Ste Foy is the off-piste skiing.

The skiing at Ste Foy is accessed initially via a single lift (in spite of which though, there are generally few queues, even in peak ski season) leading up from the resort to Plan Bois, at 1710m. From there, a further ski lift leads up to the Col de l'Aiguille at 2620m, from which you can then drop down to join the recently installed new lift La Marquise, leading from Charmettes at 1800m to Marquise at 2500m - opening up a series of red and blue descents.
