It’s all about relaxation and a non-snobby attitude to skiing and après-ski in and around Sainte Foy – there’s little wonder it’s fast becoming one of the hottest resorts in the whole of the French Alps. Located close to the border with Italy, it’s reputed for being one of the most affordable resorts in the area and is also a doddle to get into and out of. The information you’ll find on this page has been pulled together to help you choose the very best point of access from the airports at your disposal, with comprehensive resort transfer time listings and a few other pointers to bear in mind.
Despite Sainte Foy being right up there with the best in terms of amenities, conveniences and entertainment, it somehow feels much more unspoilt than its neighbouring resorts. The atmosphere is relaxed, the general clientele laid back and it seems everyone here has the same priority – old-fashioned good times on and of the slopes. Speaking of slopes, you’ll be kept busy with a full 32km of runs serviced by 5 ski lifts, while pistes above the 2,620m mark guarantee all-season snow. It’s a great place for families as one of the safest resorts in the region and as far as the scenery goes, it’s like a little slice of snow-covered Heaven!
A couple of the closest airports to Sainte Foy will have you in the thick of things in no more than about 90 minutes, so for sure you can add it to the list of possible resorts for a quick weekend retreat. If you’re willing to go a little further afield though, you’ll have about half a dozen airports to choose from of which most are served by those all-important budget airlines connecting you with every corner of Europe. Even with airport transfers included, you can still get to Sainte Foy via Chambery for example for very cheap.
Be sure to allow extra time when looking to make flights or any transport connections as the weather can of course be quite unpredictable. The Sainte Foy ski resort transfer services themselves are hugely reliable, but they cannot compensate for busy traffic conditions and extreme weather – the following represent ideal driving conditions:
Bourg St Maurice is probably the closest you’ll get to Sainte Foy if looking to take the train, which is located about 20 minutes from the centre of the resort by bus, car or taxi.
However, if you’re coming in by plane you will always save yourself significant time and money by pre-booking an organised and direct airport transfer service from your chosen arrival airport.
