Why choose a Christmas holiday in the Alps – especially Sainte Foy

  • La Marquise chalet at Christmas
  • Chalet Merlo at night.

Let’s face it, the run up to Christmas is always stressful! By the start of December, the department stores have the Pogues, Wham, & Maria Carey on repeat, the kids are writing what seem like endless wish lists, and you haven’t even started your Christmas shopping! The solution? Escape to the mountains!

Here are our the top reasons why you’ll love Sainte Foy at Christmas:

1. Wake up to a white Christmas

There’s something wonderful about drawing back the curtains and waking up to snowy mountain landscapes. Each chalet will have that lovely Christmassy feel with beautifully decorated Christmas trees.

2. It’s such a special time to be in the mountains

People are smiling and everyone is grateful to be there. It’s a magical time to be in Sainte Foy and will create memories you will keep for a long time to come. There’s plenty of snow, it’s full of people enjoying themselves, and Santa always comes to visit!

Sainte Foy really is a paradise of Christmas charm and beauty with plenty of fun for all the family; snow, sledging, snowball fights, building snowmen, skiing and snowboarding – what more could you ask for!

Sainte Foy boasts four excellent ski schools and we can help arrange all the ski holiday extras so you don’t have to! This means that you can relax and spend some quality family time on the slopes too!

3. Guilt–free feasting

Whilst everyone else is worrying about their waistline and that dreaded number on the scales, you’ll be feeling fit and guilt-free, knowing that you’ve worked them off on the mountain each day – Just three hours of downhill skiing can burn up to 775 calories!

4. The Pistes are less busy

The early bird skier catches all the freshest lines, the untracked powder and gets bragging rights way sooner than anyone else going on a ski holiday this season. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast or brunch on Christmas morning. Or if you’re up early, Christmas morning can be a fabulous time to ski. Whilst others are busy opening presents you can be whizzing down the slopes. Don’t forget to look out for Father Christmas on skis!

5. The Catered option- No cooking and more importantly, no washing up!

It could be the best Christmas present for some members of the family! You can enjoy daytime skiing together, before heading back to your slope-side home-away-from-home, to indulge in a festive dinner with all the trimmings. Best part… No-one has to cook or wash up!
