Description

The Great Escape

The Great Escape is a spacious detached chalet in a peaceful location yet just a short walk from the resort centre, lifts and ski slopes. It is divided into two independent parts which can be rented together or separately. The chalet has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8-9 whilst the apartment has 2 bedrooms and sleeps 2-6. Both are well-equipped with an open-plan living room with dining area and kitchen.

In winter, the chalet is available on a self-catered or fully catered basis to include breakfast, après-ski tea and cakes, and a 3-course dinner with wine and coffee. A two-course children's supper is available if required.

In summer, it is available on a self-catered basis only.

About the property

Chalets sur la Montagne

Chalets sur la Montagne are delightful, wood- and stone-built Savoyard ski chalets and apartments, nestled on the mountainside at Sainte Foy ski resort. They have spectacular views across the Tarentaise valley to the Aiguille Rouge and Mont Pourri mountains, and are just a short walk from 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 and pets are only accepted at Mercer for an additional charge.

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 Chalets 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.

The well equipped crèche takes those over 3 years and can link up with the ski school so that your children can be entertained and cared for from 9AM to 5PM should you so wish. Ste Foy is a resort where parents can ski with the peace of mind that their children are in good hands.

There is an exceptionally good state registered child minder who will take the under 3’s who lives 5 minutes drive away from the Chalet or we can arrange for childcare at the Chalet.

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.
