About the property

Luxury boutique catered chalet in Sainte-Foy - 100 Metres from the piste in an exclusive area just on the fringes of the old Savoyard village.

Luxury family-owned boutique catered ski chalet, nestled just above the first lift on the edge of the charming old village of Bonconseil, yards from the piste.

Designed and built by local artisans, Marigold captures the Savoyard spirit with the use of local stone, wood and Lauze throughout the building. It combines spectacular views over five floors, with stunning spacious traditional and modern interiors.

Its an exceptionally well appointed spacious chalet, all bedrooms en-suite with stunning views across the valley to Mount Pourri/Les Arcs, with majestic views of La Rossiere and the Italian Alps.

Food is our passion and we carefully select Chefs with a proven desire to exceed our clients expectations. Together, our professional chef and chalet host will prepare exceptional four course evening dinners 6 days a week, continental breakfast with an alternating hot option every morning before your days skiing. Upon your return in the afternoon, they will prepare delicious cakes and afternoon tea. Aperitifs and canapes are served before a four course dinner and our choice of quality wines selected from our wine cave.


To get the day off to a great start, our chef and chalet host will prepare a fantastic breakfast with something for everyone. Freshly baked bread, croissants, pain au chocolate, cereals, yogurts, preserves and fruits. Each morning they will also cook a hot option if you prefer.

-Eggs Benedict served with French ham and hollandaise sauce.

-French Toast with Cinnamon Icing Sugar and seasonal hot fruit compote.

-Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Eggs (chive, crème fraiche & Dijon mustard sauce).

Afternoon Tea.

After a day out on the slopes, our chef will have prepared fresh cakes, tea, hot chocolate and the odd glass of vin chaud. Relax in the sitting room around the log fire, try out the sauna or even the hot tub on the terrace as you watch the sun go down over Mount Pourri.

-Blueberry muffins served with a warm blueberry compote.

-Scones with whipped cream and strawberries.

-Carrot and cinnamon cake with a frosted topping.

-Dark chocolate, pistachio and almond trail biscuits .

Childrens early dinner.

If required, our chef and chalet host can serve the children's dinner earlier. Tell us what you want and we'll try our best to accommodate it. We've kept the menu simple, healthy and nutritious, but also something that should be appealing.

-Homemade chicken goujons with mayo, sweetcorn coblet and sweet potato wedges.

-Bangers n'mash with a delicious gravy and peas.

-Homemade fish fingers with french fries and homemade tomato ketchup.

About Valerie Dunn

The owners Alan and Valerie, have been skiing in the Tarentaise for 40 years and decided to relocate to Sainte Foy and as Alan ran a development company and Valerie is a Chartered Surveyor, decided to build Marigold ourselves in 1999. Since building Marigold, we started a French Development/Building company and work extensively in the area. Having been here since the infancy of the resort, we have vast local knowledge and contacts.

Valerie Dunn purchased this chalet in 1999

Why Valerie Dunn chose Val d'Isere - Tignes - Sainte Foy

Chalet Marigold is a superior chalet set in the perfect location, 100 metres from the piste and a short walk or ski down into the charming station of Sainte Foy. Being located on the outskirts of the original old village Bonconseil, Marigold benefits from the lack of modern development and is relatively peaceful considering its proximity to the centre of the resort.

The property is set on a hillside overlooking the Tarentaise valley with magnificent views of Mont Pourri. This 16 bed chalet was built by a master builder with every attention to detail.

What makes this chalet unique

Conveniently located 100 metres from the piste, this exceptional spacious boutique catered chalet has had every attention to detail.....

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would like to thank you for a fantastic week in Sainte Foy. Our stay in the chalet was tremendous. The food was exceptional- high quality restaurant standard for every sitting. We've stayed in many catered chalets before but this was by far the best. It exceeded all our expectations. Lauren and Harrison were so flexible with timings which suited our young family. They seemed so perceptive to all our needs which made our stay so relaxed and enjoyable. Our boys, Tom and George, thought they were wonderful- they were so patient and engaging with all of the children in our group; thank you. Our accommodation was lovey, clean, warm and incredibly relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble for lauren and Harry; from making reservations for lunches, to sorting ski hire, to buying children's particular dietary preferences. We couldn't have wanted more from our stay. We are so pleased to have such amazing hosts. We would absolutely return to Sainte Foy. We would recommend you to any of our friends.

Thanks again

Brilliant ski holiday

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Chalet Marigold before and were delighted to return for half-term this year. Prior to our trip the owners were incredibly helpful - sorting a ski guide, helping us arrange ski hire, and sending menus through. The chalet itself is ideally positioned in this family-perfect resort, and it is large enough to accommodate more than one family comfortably. We were 3 families (5 adults and 8 teenagers) and everyone felt at ease. Jake, our chef for the week, deserves special praise: I'm still thinking about his bacon ice cream, and I doubt my four teens would eat beet carpacccio or pork belly if I cooked it, yet all was devoured when presented at Marigold. All in all, a perfect ski holiday. Thank you, Marigold!

We had a superb time at Chalet Marigold over New Year, despite there being a shortage of snow the resort worked wonders with snow management and artificial from canons.

The chalet was fantastic, very spacious rooms, well maintained and excellent position just a very short walk to and from the piste.

Jake & Phillipa were our hosts for the 10 days and wow what an amazing array of food was provided each night with presentation, attention to detail and taste not out of place in a high end restaurant. Canapes by the fire at 6pm then 3 sumptuous courses at 7.30 followed by a cheese board and port. Amazing.

Breakfast was a cooked to order service, eggs anyway you want them, full English, croissants, pain au chocolate etc etc

All beers and wines are included in the price of the chalet.

Would recommend this chalet to anyone, its fabulous

A wonderful and spacious chalet

  • 5 of 5

The general standard of the chalet was good with some areas (kitchen, main living room & entrance hall) excellent

Conveniently located 5 mins walk to piste where skiing down to the lift was very quick and easy

Most impressive however, the catering and hospitality- our group of 10 (inc. 4 kids under eight) loved every mealtime and every interaction with hosts - such a relaxing and gratifying way to spend Christmas - thanks Marigold !!

Great chalet with helpful owner & wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Chalet Marigold. The chalet was large & spacious, clean and well maintained. There was a great boot room, lovely kitchen & living area with log fire, TV room & good sized bedrooms.

The owner, Liam, was very helpful & friendly, responding promptly to questions before our arrival and offering to do what he could to make our stay more comfortable & enjoyable.

Our hosts, Jake & Philippa were amazing and really helped to make our week memorable. Jake (a Chef) made us delicious breakfasts & 3 course dinners and they both worked tirelessly to help make our stay as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.

This was our first experience with Owners Direct and we were very impressed and would definitely recommend this Chalet & neighbouring (self catering) Chalet Snoopy to friends.

It was our first visit to Sainte Foy and we were very taken with the small resort, which is perfect for families. Everyone was very friendly - from the ski hire shop to the ESF team & the restaurants. We really did have a wonderful week & would highly recommend it.

home from home experience - excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Chalet Marigold as a party of 13 consisting of 8 adults, 4 toddlers and 1 baby. From the minute we arrived we were all made to feel completely at home. Lauren and Harrison were fantastic hosts. The chalet is located a short walk away from the centre and from the piste, which allows you to ski in and ski out. There was ample room in the chalet to ensure that we weren't on top of each other and the communal areas were excellent for socialising, having a hot tub definitely was a lovely bonus. Would definitely recommend and hopefully will get an opportunity to stay here again when we return again.

Great skiing chalet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Chalet Marigold for a week from 24-31 January. There were 12 of us from 3 generations - all there to celebrate Grandmother's birthday.

The resort (Ste Foy) is perfect for a mixed ability skiing group, but maybe limited for more experienced skiers. The chalet is idyllic, well located quite close to the ski lifts, (good) bars and restaurants, and the customer service from the host and his staff was first class - friendly, courteous and always willing/flexible enough to fit in with the group's differing needs. Facilities at the chalet are excellent, including a lift, a very cosy lounge with log fire, a modern and well maintained hot tub, and well appointed bedrooms, most of which have lovely mountain views. The food was excellent, (both at dinner and breakfast) with an unlimited supply of good quality wine; afternoon home made cakes were always good, and occasionally outstanding. For a birthday celebration location, it would be hard to beat, and we certainly hope to return.

MANY thanks, Liam, Lauren and Harry - you were really great!

Jackie and Bob.
