Stayed here with my wife and enjoyed spring skiing in Val D'Isere and Tignes, but equally convenient for Sainte Foy, Les Arc and La Rosiere. The house has bags of character and is comfortably furnished. The room was generously sized by Alpine standards and the owners interested and helpful. We had our evening meal there one evening and was treated... More

We stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed the stay, Evie & Michel really made us so welcome and coped with our terrible French! We had a big room with a great walk in, power shower and heard no noise from the road below. It's a quick 10 min drive to saint foy station to ski in the morning and... More

Evelyne and Michel were wonderful hosts. In addition to serving breakfast each morning, they also assisted us with making a dinner reservation one evening at a nearby restaurant, which was also wonderful. They were also very patient with our French speaking skills (though I think we improved dramatically over our four night stay). I saw one review here that described... More

I stayed here whilst skiing for a week in January. It was the icing on the cake. Michel and Evelyne are lovely people and ensured that we enjoyed our stay. Michel was up every morning to prepare our breakfast and the orange juice was freshly squeezed and delicious.

A gorgeous place to stay with lovely hosts - it was so comfortable, so 'savoyarde'. I loved it and felt so at home, which is very much down to the warmth of Michele and Eveylyne. The early hours of the 1st january '13 were especially memorable - a little Scottish dancing followed by a spot of French - much fun!... More

After reading all the other effusive reviews I wonder what I missed - but someone really needs to tell it like it is here for the sake of other travellers. On Trip Advisor it sounds fabulous....but what the other reports don't tell you is that this is bang on the mainest road possible in the alps. I had the misfortune... More

This is the first time we have stayed in Sainte Foy and we booked quite late in the season for New Year's Eve. When I read the reviews on tripadvisor, I kept thinking - yes but what's the catch? There is none. It is a great find. Super simple, savoyarde decoration and cosy. We were staying with our children and... More

What fantastic hosts Michel and Evelyne are - from the moment we arrived to the time we left, nothing was too much trouble. Michel even made breakfast for us on our return to the UK at 05.00 am. The chalet is stunning, recently renovated to a very high standard. The chalet is about 10-15 minutes free bus ride outside Saint-Foy... More
