“Perfect Christmas getaway”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We were some of the first guests in this new renovated chalet and it didn't disappoint. Equipped and furnished to an incredibly high standard, in a perfect location for easy access to the slopes, with amazing mountain views. We catered in a few nights in the spacious living and dining area, but also found some great restos both in the resort (Maison des Colonnies) and the nearby Ste Foy village (Le Monal, the Grange).

The skiing and snow conditions were great, with enough to keep everybody in the group happy, including easily accessible off-piste. We also day tripped to Tignes and Val d'Isere, which were a short drive up the valley.

Only disappointment was not bumping in to Austin Healy who is apparently regularly graces the slopes of Ste Foy! We'll def be back next year to find out.

As a 35 year old Austrian who has been skiing since the age of 4 years old I can still say that our stay at Chalet de l'Ours last January was the most lovely ski holiday ever!
During our week my wife, our friends and myself enjoyed this wonderful old house which has been renovated and decorated with a lot of style and common sense in terms of practicability.
St. Foy takes a bit to reach (as every good skiing resort does), but then gives access to an incredible amount of high class resorts. We enjoyed very much the quality of off and on slope skiing and even though we were not the most lucky with the weather during our stay we found every single day very enjoyable snow conditions!
The owners were very helpful with every little thing beforehand and there was a bus straight from our house to the slope - the transfer literally took 1 minute! This is also a very short walk.
A detail I personally enjoyed a lot about the house was the incredible cooker which was big enough to cook meals for the village and still handy enough just to make a nice cup of tea that I was often enjoying sitting on one of the big nice leather sofas looking at the fire.
At this point every single evening I felt completely fulfilled.

“Dream Place!”

We stayed at Chalet L'Ours earlier this year with a group of friends, just after its renovations. It is absolutely stunning, both in terms of decoration and also the views across the mountains from most of the rooms. It is spacious and really well equipped for large groups (I loved the big kitchen table). Really appreciated also the nice extras e.g satellite, underfloor heating, high quality kitchen equipment. We have always skied in Austria, this being our first trip to France for this purpose and we were not disappointed. The slopes next to the chalet were virtually empty and we had great piste conditions (however the area is actually known for its excellent off-piste conditions). During the week we were able to access Val D'Isere and also Italian slopes. The owners gave us fabulous tips for ski guides (a must in my opinion) and restaurants nearby. We had a wonderful holiday: it would be hard to stay elsewhere after this treat.

“Top quality accommodation, beautiful surroundings”

I would highly recommend this house to anyone thinking of going to the Alps.
The renovations , recently completed, have been handled with care, thought and with the best materials. The views from each and every window in the chalet are spectacular. The entire chalet is surrounded by mountain. There was plenty of room in the 'communal area' for our group of 6 adults + baby to feel we were not on top of each other. There is a lovely open fire, a tv for some lovely relaxing time.
We had the master bedroom which was very comfortable and well equipped with built in cupboards. It fit the double bed, the cupboard area and the baby cot.
The owners of the chalet are knowledgeable about the area and willing to help with any advise you may need.
We had a young baby and drove to the resort from Brussels. The village, St Foy Terentaise, was easily accessible. We did however realise that the snow train goes directly to Bourge-Saint-Maurice which could have also been a good option. Once in Bourg we could have either hired a car or asked someone to pick us up. It was a short drive from the station to the house in St Foy.
