The free shuttle bus to exclusive Sainte Foy ski resort stops just outside the apartment building, taking you the 4kms up to what remains one of skiing's best kept secrets - in spite of being voted one of the 'Top 10' ski resorts in the world!

4 of us (2 couples) stayed a week in the apartment in early January and couldn't have had a better time. Although the easiest way to get there from the airport is by car, it means that you have the ability to get to a handful of ski resorts, all within 20 minutes or so, which is great for a varied and interesting holiday. The apartment itself has indoor parking which is especially good when it's cold out and provides piece of mind too. The apartment is equipped with absolutely everything that you could need, from a good set of cooking knives and pots and pans to a whole selection of board games, dvds and an excellent hi-fi system, all of which ensured we felt right at home. Everything is beautifully looked after and very comfortable indeed, so we felt like we were in a home away from home from the second we stepped through the door.
The detail in the welcome pack is remarkable and answered every question we had through the week, meaning we felt like we had local tip-offs for things to do near by as well as all questions answered about the apartment itself.
All in all, the 4 of us had a magnificent week in an excellent apartment and would go back in a heartbeat.
5th stay in this apartment. Great location for access to St Foy, Les Arcs, La Rosiere and Tignes. Comfortable stylish apartment in pretty village with good bar!
Super apartment - caffeine addicts liked the Nespresso coffee machine . Loved the resort of Ste Foy - it is small but the snow was great and the slopes were almost empty. So all in all a great stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Silver Fox Apartment in Ste Foy Tarentaise. We loved the apartment, by far the best we've stayed in during many years of family ski trips. Very clean, comfortable and well laid out. Ian Locke, the owner, did everything possible to make the arrangements and arrival as easy as possible. The village is a bit of a drive from the slopes, but it's on the Navette bus route. If you've got transport it's within easy range of three major ski areas, as well as Ste Foy Station itself, where the skiing is excellent. Covered parking was particularly handy. The village itself has retained much of its original quiet Alpine character.
The area is one of wonderful genuine mountain scenery, with lots of craggy rock outcrops and sharply rising peaks - one of the finest being Mount Pourri which the front balcony looks up to.
Although on the route up to Tignes and Val d'Isere, down the valley things are much quieter, and the choice of many locals who work in the area to live.
Also just 5 minutes away from the apartment is the village of Villaroger, from which a chairlift takes you up to the Paradiski area of Les Arcs / La Plagne; competent skiers can then ski back to Villaroger at the end of the day. The famous resorts of Val d'Isere and Tignes are within 15 mins drive, or you might fancy skiing down to Italy from La Rosiere, also 15 mins away.
