Great little apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Cedar apartment. The apartment is just outside the main resort but within easy walking or shuttle bus distance and provides great accommodation for a family. the accommodation is both spacious and comfortable and well recommended. The smallest of gripes would be the lack of a few pans to cook with if you intend to eat at home but for a weeks trip the provision was adequate.

We will no doubt be back to stay here. After a 30 year absence we found the resort to be perfect for a mixed ability group and ideal for children.

Communication was seamless with Andrea the owner and our arrival and departure were easy to manage.

We can whole heartedly recommend this great little apartment.

Living the dream!

  • 5 of 5

Superb property with plenty of room for everyone. Located just down the hill from the main resort but free shuttle bus takes the effort out of the walk up the hill if you have your skis. Sainte Foy is a small village with plenty of character. The skiing is good for all levels and there is some great off piste available for the more adventurous skiers. There are a selection of places to eat with some great regional dishes available. Black Diamond is a must when they have Mullit playing on the outside deck - dancing on the tables is positively encouraged! I will certainly be back next year.

Beautiful, warm - great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas here this year and had such an amazing time. Sainte Foy is a great ski resort and this chalet is in a perfect location to make the most of it. Beautiful apartment, perfect location and an awesome view. Handy bus that stops right outside (whist only a few minutes uphill walk to the chairlift - any help is appreciated when carrying ski equipment!).

Really warm and cosy with great under floor heating and a log burner. Property was spotlessly clean and had great facilities and a spectacular mezzanine bedroom.

The only slight criticism we had is that the shower isn't that great, but other than that everything else was perfect. Highly recommended for families.

Really lovely accommodation

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this chalet with my husband and teenage son, we found the apartment just perfect for our needs.its a very short walk to the ski lifts however

if you can't be bothered to walk a free shuttle bus stops outside with a really helpful bus driver! The chalet has a ski run which leads directly to the front door. The apartment is very bright with fantastic views down the valley and a really cosy log fire which we really appreciated there is a TV with all the British channels which was so handy as the Winter Olympics were on when we there. The double bed was so comfortable ( I often have difficulties with soft mattresses) and the apartment was very clean and warm. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment. The ONLY negative point is the shower isn't very forceful but it does have a great bath for soaking in!
