Chalet Susie is located in the ski resort of Sainte Foy. It offers easy access to the slopes in the winter and is a great walking/MTB destination in the spring and summer.
At 70sqm it is as large as some 3 bedroom apartments and is luxuriously furnished. There is a picnic bench in the garden with fantastic mountain views.
Contact us for discounts on longer stays.
We operate a Sunday changeover in winter (traffic is lighter than Saturdays) and a Saturday changeover in summer.
A large, beautifully renovated 1 bedroom apartment in an old farmhouse spread over 2 floors. Ideally suited to couples it will also suit groups or small families (up to 4) during the peak periods.
Situated in the old hamlet of Bataillette on the northerly edge of Sainte Foy Station the lifts are a short walk or a 30 second shuttle ride away. The shuttle runs a small loop from the Eco Le Ruitor hotel (just a few seconds walk from the front door of the apartment) to the ESF meeting point. In terms of convenience access to the slopes is only bettered by a genuine ski-in/ski-out property.
The property was fully renovated in 2014 in a traditional style by local craftsmen using high quality materials and features underfloor heating. The interior is completed with a Nero Victorio antique limestone floor and an extremely comfortable Chesterfield suite.
Whilst the apartment is comfortably large enough to accommodate 4 adults using the Chesterfield sofa bed in the living area we have designed it to primarily appeal to couples or young families who might otherwise find themselves having to rent a two bedroom apartment and compromise on the available living space.
The front door opens to a garden area with beautiful and extensive views of the Tarentaise valley and a pub-style picnic table
The Winter season:
Contact us if you are interested in a long term stay. We can offer discounts outside the peak periods of Xmas, New Year and the UK half term.
We operate a Sunday changeover for most of the Winter season. This offers clients the dual benefits of travelling to and from the resort when the roads are quiet (the main changeover day in the wider area is Saturday and traffic can be extremely heavy, especially during the peak weeks) and being able to enjoy a Saturday on the slopes as the final day of their holiday (as most people are either leaving or arriving on a Saturday the slopes are generally very quiet on a Saturday).
Outside the ski season:
We can offer discounted deals on extended stays of 4 weeks or more. Contact us for more information as it is not always possible to reflect these discounts in the listed prices.
Chalet Susie offers great walking, hiking and mountain biking opportunities direct from the front door and is superbly located for exploring the wider Haute Tarentaise and Savoie area with its rich and varied history.
The resort itself shares a 25km border with Italy and several historic fortifications are within an easy drive. These include the Fort de la Platte, Fort du Truc and Fort de la Redoute Ruinee.
There are several nature reserves in the area with the Réserve Naturelle des Hauts de Villaroger being a 15 minute drive away. Please be aware that this area serves as a refuge of the Tetras-Lyre and can only be accessed with an approved guide.
The apartment contains several maps and books detailing local walks for all levels of fitness. The walk to the hamlet of Le Monal is easily achievable whilst the return hike to Lac Noir is likely to take most of the day but is well worth the effort. June is a particularly colourful month as the meadow flowers are in full bloom.
The resort's Grand Plan lift opens for foot passengers and mountain bikers during the Summer holiday period. Opening times for Summer 2016 are Sunday to Friday 10:00 to 12:30 and 13:30 to 16:00.
This is a fully contained apartment and clients have sole access.
Interakcija s gostima
We do not live in resort but we do have experienced and professional local representatives who are available to deal with any issues should that be necessary.
During the winter season we operate on a Sunday changeover. During the summer season we operate on a Saturday changeover. Guests may only check-in/check-out on the changeover day.
This allows us to maximise occupancy and schedule local cleaning services whilst keeping our prices competitive.
I first discovered Sainte Foy in 2007 and was taken in by the uniqueness of the resort holidaying their regularly. In 2012, with my partner, I bought a 4-story house in an old farm building on the edge of the resort. The property has been professionally renovated using local craftsmen and traditional materials and now consists of 2 very comfortable duplex apartments.
The first, Chalet de l'Ours, is a large 3 bedroom apartment available for rent year round. Chalet Susie will be our permanent home when circumstances permit but until then we are making it available to fellow skiers and mountain lovers and hope you will enjoy the area as much as we do.
