About Ric Hettinga

We are a couple from the Netherlands (living near Utrecht). As a retired consultant and diplomat i have seen many parts of the world, but Sainte Foy is for me the best place away from home. Both summer and winter.

Ric Hettinga purchased this chalet in 2001

Why Ric Hettinga chose Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise

We knew the area mainly from skiing holidays and when the possibility arose to buy this piece of land we decided very quickly to do it . Although a basic plan was available we made many changes to fit our personal ideas.

What makes this chalet unique

We were especially attracted by the good skiing possibilities for both adults and children in addition to the fantastic views. And most important at 1550 meter it is also snow secure.

Great homely chalet (almost on) pistes

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay over the Easter break. Chalet has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxed ski trip. Especially enjoyed the open fire, the fully equipped kitchen and the spectacular view from the balcony. When we arrived finding the chalet at night in snow was a little tricky as was transporting the gear - but once you are settle in it’s a great location for the pistes. Be aware the trip to and from the village supermarket / bars etc. involves an uphill / upstairs walk, good exercise though!

Cosy, convenient and charming

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Saint Foy and one of the best chalets we have ever stayed in. We were a group of 8 friends and found there was plenty of space for us all. The chalet has stunning views, gets the sun all day, is super comfortable and very conveniently located just off the piste.

Although the WiFi was unpredictable, the chalet was extremely well equipped with everything from CDs to potato peelers and cosy blankets to raclette sets! It was also wonderful to find the logs for the fire stacked up ready outside with kindling ready to go. The owners really had thought of everything.

A few tips: the guy in the supermarket is great fun ‘Yes chef!’, steer clear of the restaurant ‘Le Bergerie’ and look out for free fireworks on NYE!

We would highly recommend this chalet and hope to return ourselves!

Beautiful Chalet in upper village of St Foy

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting St Foy for the last eight years and this year we stayed at the beautiful Chalet Icogne. Its at the top of the resort in the beautiful upper village area. The view from the living room is spectacular and completely uninterrupted. Its south west facing so you get sun throughout the day which just adds to the holiday if you ever decide to take a break from the slopes. The upper village is very pretty but also means you ski down to the lift and ski lessons, so you never have to carry the kid’s skis or polls.

This is a true ski in/out chalet with only tiny little walk to the opening onto the slope. We would leave our skis outside the front door each night and boots (etc) inside the front door in the very convenient 'boot changing' entrance room. The bedrooms are simple but very nice with a double, twin and bunk bed room (for 4). The living room has a lovely feel to it. Its gets fantastic light and is a beautiful space to relax in for breakfast, lunch and especially at night after a days skiing.

There is also covered parking a little distance away which means your car is ready to go with no 'dig out' on the day of your departure.

All in all this is a fantastic Chalet for a family (or two, as accomodates 8). The location is awesome and we look forward to returning next season. Patrick.

Great Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Icogne is well appointed and Ste. Foy Tarentaise is a wonderful, cozy ski resort. We were 6 adults and the chalet was very comfortable. The chalet is definitely "ski in" and it is just a short walk between 2 chalets to the slope. On the bottom floor, there are 3 bedrooms, 2 of which have double beds and one has 2 bunkbed sets (4 people). The bathrooms are also all located on this ground floor. You have 1 bathroom with a toilet/sink, a 2nd bathroom with shower/sink and the 3rd bathroom with bathtub/shower combo, sink, toilet. None of the bedrooms is "en-suite"

Upstairs is the main living area with absolutely breathtaking views. There is a well appointed kitchen, a nice large table and a wood burning firplace, comfortable sofas/stereo/TV. WiFi worked well.

The owners have a parking space in garage but unfortunately this garage is not connected to the chalet. ! It is actually below the chalet so you take a lift up from the parking garage and then walk about 100m, slightly uphill to the chalet. The narrow snow covered path can prove difficult and a little treacherous especially at night and when carrying luggage, supplies. However, it is nice not to have to clean your car after a heavy snow fall!

Over all the chalet is very nice and extremely convenient for skiing and/or snow shoeing. We look forward to returning. One TIP... if you vacation in Ste. Foy during a busy UK holiday period, it is necessary to make dinner reservations ahead of time.

luxe chalet in prachtige, rustige omgeving

  • 4 of 5

We wilden onze 4 kinderen graag laten kennis maken met de Alpen, nou dat is gelukt! Toen we in het chalet aankwamen waren ze volledig door het dolle heen. Niet alleen de bergen vonden ze fantastisch, maar ook het chalet, de hangmat, de stapelbedden. En niet te vergeten alle beestjes die ze probeerden te vangen rondom het chalet. Ze zijn er uren zoet mee geweest. Ondertussen was het goed toeven in de ligstoelen achter het huis met een prachtig uitzicht op de bergen. De uitrusting van het chalet was zeer compleet, ook van binnen (en vanaf het terras) is het uitzicht overigens prachtig. Contact met de hulpvaardige eigenaar kwam eenvoudig tot stand. We hebben genoten van de rust en stilte rondom het chalet. In de omgeving hebben we een paar mooie wandeltochten gemaakt. Kortom een erg geslaagde zomerweek in een rustig deel van de hoge Alpen!

The chalet is located in the French Alps in the snow assured and charming Savoyard village of Sainte Foy at 1500m. Chalet and ski resort are child friendly. Furthermore, Sainte Foy also known for off-piste skiing and snowboarding. There are 40 km of slopes ranging from blue to black. The sunny slopes are located on the south.

The village lies on the road from Bourg St Maurice to Tignes-Val d'Isere.

Apres-ski: Restaurants, tea room, bars (ski) shops and indoor pool. All units are located within walking distance of the ski lift and ski slope.

The famous ski resorts of Tignes and Les Arcs are respectively 25 and 15 minutes.

Accessible by car (1000 km of Utrecht), TGV (alight at Bourg St Maurice at 20km from chalet) and plane (alight in Geneva and then by bus to Bourg St Maurice or rental car)

Golf: SKI: Whether you're a skier or snowboarder, you will enjoy the diverse environment of Sainte Foy. There are well-groomed slopes from blue to black, but also numerous off-piste routes, such as to the picturesque village of Le Monal and the famous north face of the Fogliettaz. Non-skiers will also love to walk through this winter paradise or snowshoes to walk along the forest paths farming villages.

The skiing is between 1550-2610m and there are no queues for the elevator. With the ski pass of Sainte Foy offers you a discount in the ski resorts in the area (Tignes, Les Arcs).
