Sainte Foy is perfect for families like us as experienced skiers with younger children, the ski school instructors are lovely and pistes are so quiet even at New Year or half term. Overall we find we get a lot more for our money here, lift pass is very cheap as is ski hire, restaurants etc...
If we feel the need for some motorway skiing and the resultant crowds and queues we just jump on a shuttle bus and visit Val d`Isere or Les Arcs; they are only 20 minutes away... ...

The village is purpose built but very nicely constructed and well laid out. There is not much in the way of night life. The on mountain restaurants were busy and quite expensive. All accommodation appeared to be of a high standard and easy walking distance to lifts. All the pistes come back to one point which was superb for us as we had a mixed group and it allowed our teenagers to safely snowboard in a small group without us worrying that they'd get lost! The pistes were very quiet even though it was the Easter holidays. Sainte Foy is a great base if you have a car for visiting Tignes, Les Arcs, Val d'Isère etc. There is also easy access to Les Arcs via Villaroger. ...

A great resort for all ages. have been to big resorts and quite frankly this beat the pants off them. We stayed in Les fermes with swimming pool and spa on site and stepped out of our chalet onto the slopes, fab! no carting skis and equipment. Very safe environment in fact by the end of the week you recognised faces almost unheard of unless you own a property somewhere and go year after year. We will be going back! ...

I took my family to Ste Foy for a week during February Half Term this year and was amazed at how quiet it was in comparison to other resorts in the area. We went to Val d'Isere for one day but couldn't wait to get back to the relative calm of Ste Foy! Although the resort is small, the local restaurants are good and family-friendly, and the skiing is phenomenal. The runs were varied enough to keep the children entertained all week, and the off-piste was great. I would highly recommend a trip to Ste Foy for families and serious skiers alike. ...

Just returned from a half term break to Sainte Foy for our first ever skiing holiday as a family (kids 8 & 4). This small resort is centred around the nursery slopes which makes looking after the children very easy as they can ski/sledge all afternoon whilst you enjoy the beautiful scenery. The snow was good and the ski was blue all week. I enjoyed the skiing and, despite it being half term, the slopes were not as busy as I had experienced in other resorts in the past. The only queues for lifts were when the ski school set off in the morning and all classes arrived at the one chair life up the mountain at the same time. We were all in ski school but had very different experiences. The ch...
