About the Owner

Chalet Cedar is owned by husband and wife Chris and Christina Nixon. We have been brining our daughter to Sainte Foy since she was 6 months old so our chalet had to be well equiped because of all the little things you need when children are so small. Chris loves snowboarding and has done so for 20 years and Christina loves skiing. The door to the Chalet has a key coded lock and there is also a locker to lock all equipment away at the end of the day, after you have skied to the door at the end of the day.Our Chalet is our home from home we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The perfect ski holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are 3 couples who are intermediate skiers and snowboarders and had the most wonderful holiday in Sainte Foy. Chalet Cedar was perfect!!! So homely and cosy, loved the wood burner and the attention to detail with the decor. I have already recommended this place to a friend and hope to come back one day. Thank you so much :)

Most Pleasing!

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Cedar is a fabulous place to stay in Sainte Foy & we definitely recommend it! Very homely & comfortable with everything you need. We loved it so much we ate in every night after having a few après ski beers, why would you want to go anywhere else with the amazing view of the mountains, wood burner, candles & twinkly fairy lights on the balcony! I loved the new tartan carpets, the double bed was comfy & the wet room shower great after a day’s skiing. Easy walking access to main Sainte Foy centre & we could ski to the door! Perfect Skiing getaway, we dreamt it was ours & have booked our next trip already!

Perfect holiday accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Cedar is a beautiful chalet, with stunning mountain views from the lounge and one of the bedrooms. The property is spotlessly clean and has been recently redecorated. This property also benefits from private parking, which is a bonus.

This is our second year staying at Chalet Cedar and we will most definitely be back.

The property benefits from a mini bus service to the slopes, which departs every 5mins and takes less than 1 min. We found the service to be exceptionally reliable and the driver to be friendly and accommodating.

There is a short red back to Chalet Cedar and on this occasion, we were able to ski straight to the front door :0)

The skiing in St Foy is fabulous and queues almost non-existent. We were lucky with some good powder days.

We lunched most days at "la Bergerie" where the Dutch owner was execeptionally friendly. The food was good, although a little slow at times, so if you are in a hurry, you might want to try somewhere else.

We would recommend the bakery and the supermarket at the opposite end of St Foy to Chalet Cedar, only a short 5 min walk away.

We love St Foy and Chalet Cedar, they make the 1,100 mile drive from Glasgow worth it!

From the Owner

Chris Nixon has snowboarded in the area for many years and was introduced to the village by a friend. We decided to buy because unlike some very popular resorts the pistes are not crowded its very beautiful and a wonderful place for the family away from all the hustle and bustle. Chris loves off piste skiing and has found lots off hidden gems over the years.

Chris and Christina have made their chalet a home from home. You can ski to the door at the end of the day spend the evening at one of the fantastic restaurants in the village or just relax and put your feet up in front of the fire with a large glass of wine. The chalet has a well equipped Kitchen, with hob, microwave, oven, dishwasher, washing machine,fridge and lots of other gadgets such as a slow cooker which is a perfect way to end the day with a slow cooked casserole.
