TRAIN TO SAINTE FOY
Eurostar's ski train to the French Alps
This winter, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Travelski, who’ll be offering direct trains to the Alps as part of a package. Find out more here.
You can also hit the slopes by taking the Eurostar to Paris, then hopping on a TGV train to Moûtiers and Bourg-Saint-Maurice. You will be able to book tickets for the whole journey through our website from autumn.
And you won’t need to worry about missing your connection in Paris. Because Eurostar is a member of Railteam, your ticket will allow you to jump on the next available train in Paris if you’re delayed or your train is cancelled.
Train to Sainte Foy
This charming little resort has stayed under the radar for years, due to the relatively small size of its ski area. However, it's a wonderful place for beginners to learn and for experts to enjoy extensive off piste.
Sainte Foy sits on the road that leads from Bourg St Maurice up to Tignes and Val d'Isère. For many years, skiers would drive past it, but over the past decade word has spread about the charming village with quiet slopes and an incredible amount of off-piste terrain.
Sainte Foy village
The village is small and friendly, the array of attractive chalet buildings nestled amongst the trees creating a gorgeous setting.
The slopes at Sainte Foy
With 40km of pistes, the extent of the slopes is limited and mile-hungry intermediates could cover it all within a day. However, the slopes remain blissfully quiet, and you'll rarely encounter a lift queue.
Sainte Foy for families
Sainte Foy is a natural favourite with families because of its small village and quiet slopes, making it easy for the whole family to stick together or meet up after lessons.
Things to do in Sainte Foy
You can trade in your skis for raquettes and head off for a few hours into the forest, with options to dine and stay overnight at an authentic mountain chalet, waking up to witness the sunrise over the mountains.
Eating out in Sainte Foy
There are some excellent restaurants dotted around the slopes of Sainte Foy, as well as in the village.
Les Brevetes and Chez Leon are good options at the top of the first chair while, at the foot of the slopes, Les Maison a Colonnes is a beautiful 16th century Savoyard farmhouse serving mountain favourites.
Nightlife in Sainte Foy
Being such a small resort, Sainte Foy has never developed an après ski scene. Your best bet is the bar La Pitchoule, which sometimes has live bands.
Where to stay in Sainte Foy
The two main self-catering residences are Le Ruitor and Les Fermes de Sainte Foy, both which have excellent facilities such as pools and spas.
