About the property

Chalet in St Foy Tarentaise, Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Surrounded By Nature With Easy Access To Set Foy, Les Arcs, Val D'isere, Tignes And La Rosiere

Chalet Le Jorat is a traditional Savoyard farm building, which has been sympathetically restored to retain it’s character and charm, while still offering all modern comforts. It is a family home, lovingly decorated with quality furnishings, antiques and quirky finds from the local flea market. It has a large open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area. There are 3 bedrooms, sleeping 6-9, and 2 bathrooms, one of which is en-suite. The hamlet of Le Jorat is almost deserted and often you may be the only people staying there. It is situated half way between St Foy Tarentaise Village and the turning up to Ste Foy Ski Station, nestled amongst the trees and surrounded by nature but simultaneously with easy access to the resorts of St Foy, Les Arcs, Val d’Isere, Tignes and La Rosiere. In summer there are countless mountain activities just minutes away and some of our favourite winter restaurants open their swimming pools so that following a delicious lunch you can bask in the glory of the mountains, while enjoying a glorious day by the pool.

About Tania Chisholm

We are a professional family living in England with two children.

Tania Chisholm purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Tania Chisholm chose Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise

We fell in love with this area for its diverse skiing that caters for all ability levels from children beginners to off piste touring with friendly local guides that have grown up in these mountains. With a host of different resorts to choose from within such a short distance variation is unlimited and in the summer white water rafting, mountain biking, hiking and climbing are all just minutes away.

We feel that we are in the heart of an amazing area with endless activities on the doorstep yet retain the privacy and atmosphere of a mountain hideaway.

Rustic Chic Chalet In Idyllic Hamlet
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

An exceptional, characterful home that turns an Alpine stay into a real experience.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Chalet Le Jorat is fabulous. The wonderfully decorated front door heralds the magic inside. From the antique Savoyard Ski Chalet decor (including animal skins on the floor and stuffed heads on the walls!), to the comfort of the beds, the luxury of the linen, to small details like the sharpness of the knives and the quality of the kitchenware, this place far exceeded our expectations.

The Chalet has a real sense of history about it, and you can easily imagine the convivial atmosphere of long dinners shared around the massive table in years gone by. We invited guests for drinks and dinner during our stay and, unsurprisingly, they all suffered from acute chalet-envy!

We visited in summer, ostensibly for mountain biking, and found Le Jorat perfectly placed with Tignes and Les Arcs within a 20 minute drive up and down the valley, and with XC trails virtually on the doorstep at Le Monal.

Le Jorat is just off-road, but it's views up at the mountains and down the valley towards Villa Roger give it a really secluded feel, and the balcony and stone terraces give you plenty of private outdoor space to relax in.

The owners were really helpful and gave us lots of tips about how to get the most out of our stay. We didn't manage to fit it all in so we're already plotting a return visit.
