Luxury ski in - ski out chalets/apartments, catered/self-catered, Sainte Foy - Les Hirondelles

Overview

Property

Updated: 01-Dec-2016
Ideal location for family ski holidays and summer activity holidays

Frontline sur la Montagne are luxury, wood- and stone-built Savoyard ski apartments, in a fantastic ski in - ski out location at Sainte Foy ski resort. They have spectacular views across the Tarentaise valley to the Aiguille Rouge and Mont Pourri mountains, and are right at the foot of the pistes. As they are private homes, the properties have a very high quality of furnishings and equipment throughout with plenty of storage space. There's very efficient electric heating and plenty of hot water. A good selection of books, videos, and games are provided. Please note that the chalets are strictly NON-SMOKING.

Ski schools and children: Ski schools: The ESF ski school is like many other things in Ste Foy: small, friendly and intimate! The instructors in the ESF have a great record of successful teaching of our friends, family and guests. We can also arrange off-piste instruction and guiding.

Children: The Frontline sur la Montagne properties are a particularly suitable base for a holiday with children being perfectly placed to ski in probably the most child friendly resort in the world: Ste. Foy! Ski passes for the under 7’s are free.

Your children can be entertained and cared for by our private nanny service or the well equipped crèche which takes those over 3 years and can link up with the ski school. Ste Foy is a resort where parents can ski with the peace of mind that their children are in good hands.

Non skiers: Non-skiers are well catered for with facilities for cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, dog-sledding, ice-climbing, ice-fishing, ice-skating and swimming nearby. Or why not just relax on the sunny balcony at the Chalet, and leave the strenuous activities to others. Shoppers will enjoy a stroll around the shops and weekly markets at the major resorts.

Summer: There are numerous walking and mountain bike routes in the area, to suit all levels of ability. In the peak summer months of July and August, many of the ski lifts in the neighbouring resorts of Les Arcs, Val d’Isère and Tignes are open to cyclists and walkers to allow access to the high mountains without the hard work of climbing them! For walkers, we are also very close to the Vanoise National Park with its unique and varied flora and fauna.

In addition to walking and mountain biking, there are numerous other activities available within easy reach, including river sports (canoeing, white water rafting, hydro speeding, cannoning), skiing, golf, horse riding, tennis, fishing, bird watching and rock climbing. Cultural interests include the Baroque church trail, the local Vins de Savoie vineyards, concerts in a variety of venues and many local fêtes which take place throughout the summer.

More Details

Details for holiday apartment Les Hirondelles, 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, 2 Bathrooms, 1 Separate WC

Les Hirondelles (the Swallows) is named after the birds that swoop gracefully above the valley in the warmer months. It is perfectly situated at the foot of the children's nursery slope and sledging slope, so is virtually ski-in, ski-out, and it's just a 50-metre walk from the ski school meeting point. It offers a superior standard of accommodation with exposed beams and fireplace, and has spectacular views across the Tarentaise valley to the Aiguille Rouge and Mont Pourri mountains.

Excellent location and lovely spacious property.

  • 5 of 5

A great location next to the slopes with underground parking. The rooms were nice and spacious. Super view from the balcony over to Mount Pourri. The kitchen was fine - perhaps a few more cups and glasses. The food provided at dinner by the Auberge & Chalets Sur La Montagne was lovely. We liked the fact we could do our own thing for breakfast but could choose some nights to have dinner cooked for us. The fire was an added bonus. Thank you

AMAZING!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect! Truly a ski-in/ski-out location. Everything inside the chalet was exceptional and there was plenty of space for all of us. The parking garage worked exceptionally well (and we didn't have to remove the luggage carrier).

We can't say enough good things about Ruth and the ski tech (sorry -- we can't remember his name...but the girls do remember he was an underwear model in the U.K). They greeted us upon arrival and fitted the kids with skis. Amazing service! Thank you for what has been our most enjoyable trip to the Alps to date. See you next year!

We are ideally placed for winter ski holidays at Sainte Foy Tarentaise and the nearby resorts of Val d'Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosiere and for walking holidays, cycling holidays and mountain biking in the summer. The stunning flora and fauna of the Vanoise National Park is just a short drive away. We are a comfortable 10-hour drive from the Channel.

Ski: Winter Sports: All our chalets are situated in the heart of the small ski resort of Sainte Foy Tarentaise which gives you the most fantastic choice of downhill winter sports! Some guests choose to ski a different resort each day; others choose to ski the world famous Val d'Isère - Tignes circuit without paying world famous resort prices or enduring world famous resort commercialisation!

You are in a ski-in, ski-out location at the off-piste paradise of Sainte Foy: it's uncrowded and the powder can last untracked for days. It’s also a perfect place for children and beginners as well as for a relaxing ski holiday away from the crowds. You can drive to the Espace Killy in 20 minutes at Tignes Les Brévières and to the Les Arcs area in 15 minutes at Villaroger.
