If you’re dreaming of an incredible ski holiday, Sainte Foy, home of quiet slopes, beautiful chalets & an authentic Savoyard friendly vibe, delivers.
We may be a bit biased, as we love everything our secret ski resort has to offer, but there’s an abundance of reasons why so many guests return to Sainte Foy each year. To get you started, below we’ve picked out what we believe to be the top 10.
1. Sainte Foy Offers Crowd Free Skiing
Known as ‘The Jewel in the Crown’, this hidden resort has been one of the best kept secrets in The Alps for years, it’s no wonder it’s where ski instructors from other resorts love to come on their days off! Just unplug from the world & escape the busy hustle and bustle of the big resorts whilst enjoying picturesque and varied terrain.
2. Superb Skiing for all Abilities
Sainte Foy’s slopes offer plenty of choice for beginners, intermediates & advanced skiers, as well as off-piste powder hounds.
There are currently 4 ski lifts and 2 magic carpets and the resort goes from an altitude of 1550m to 2620m. Sainte Foy offers 26 pistes as well as designated off-piste free ride areas – ideal for all skiers and snowboarders alike. Add to this the 80+ snow cannons and a snow-sure resort is guaranteed.
And let’s not forget, there’s such a wide variety of choice in the terrain: close knit trees (excellent on snowy days), wide open big blue pistes (great confidence builder for beginners to intermediates), rolling reds (for those who want to get those carve turns perfect)… and then there is the off-piste…. A vast snowy playground for advanced boarders and skiers.
3. Authentic Alpine Vibes
Stunning views, varied runs and quaint mountain restaurants where you can relax and re-energise in the afternoon, what more could you want? Check out our Premiere Neige catered and self-catered accommodation portfolio, as all of our Sainte Foy properties are right in the heart of the resort – many of which are situated in ski-in/ski-out locations!
4. Great Value Ski Passes
When you book a Premiere Neige ski holiday, you’ll receive Sainte Foy lift passes at discounted rates – cheaper than purchasing in resort and very much cheaper than the surrounding bigger resorts. Additionally, should you wish to take a Première Neige ski safari over to one of the nearby busier resorts (Val d’Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosiere), you’ll receive discounts and offers with your Sainte Foy lift pass.
5. Fantastic for Families
Offering uncrowded, family-friendly beginner and nursery slopes, the resort is ideal for those just starting out, or looking to build up their confidence, with FREE skiing for children under 5!
If your kids aren’t old enough to ski or are too tired to ski all day, we can arrange private nannies starting from 6months+ and there is also an in resort kids club, which is the perfect retreat for children aged 3-11 years to play, rest and have creative fun! Peace of mind that your kids are in good hands and some time off for you too… Visit our childcare page for more details
6. Ski extras Pre-booking Service
Ski experiences are tailor-made from start to finish – pre-book lift passes & ski hire and enjoy discounts on normal prices.

7. Everything is within easy reach
The best part about Sainte Foy is that everything is so close by! All Premiere Neige Sainte Foy accommodation is close to shops, bars, restaurants, ski school meeting points and the first chairlift. This means hardly any walking in ski boots and getting home after apres-ski drinks is just a hop, skip and a jump away. Check out the resort map for more details
8. Catered & self-catered Accommodation to suit all budgets
We have a range of chalets and apartments in Sainte Foy with options to suit all. From large groups to a couple’s getaway. Guests can choose between catered accommodation with a professional chef and self-catered accommodation with fully-equipped kitchens and luxury features such as hot tubs, saunas & games rooms.
9. Location, location, location
Sainte Foy has been hailed the ‘jewel in the crown’, thanks to its location, with four other world-class resorts, just 25 minutes drive away. If you are keen to ski multiple resorts during your ski week, such as Tignes, Val d’Isere, La Rosiere and Les Arcs, it’s quite easy book an inter-resort transfer via our Concierge Team.
10. Airports & Eurostar train terminus nearby!
Getting to the Alps and booking travel can seem quite daunting, especially if you haven’t been skiing before. But have no fear, there are so many flight options now from the UK to the Alps, with Chambery just 1 hr 45 mins away from Sainte Foy and Geneva, Grenoble and Lyon around 2 hrs 45 mins away. Or, if you prefer to take the Eurostar ski train from London St Pancras, you can arrive into Bourg St Maurice train station which is just 25 minutes from resort!
