The Great Escape

The Great Escape chalet and apartment
1 of 25The Great Escape chalet and apartment
Chalet -
6 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 14
Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise, Savoie, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes
The Great Escape is the perfect chalet for a sociable winter or summer sports holiday with a large group of friends or family. There are two parts - the duplex chalet on the upper floors has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8/9, whilst the ground floor apartment has 2 bedrooms and sleeps 4-6. Each part has it's own living area and kitchen, so there is plenty of space to relax. The duplex has a log fire and large comfy leather sofas to sink into after a hard day on the slopes. As it is a privately owned holiday home, the Great Escape benefits from those little extra touches that set it apart from a commercial rental property. It boasts a very high quality of furnishings and equipment with plenty of storage space, efficient heating and plenty of hot water. It has a good selection of books, dvd’s/videos, and games.

Very nice place. The chalet with tne apartment were perfect for two families and grand parents. The sunny terraces were good places during children siesta. The only inconvenient is about washing machine and dryer that didn't work well but we appreciated the rapidity of interventions....More

About the neighbourhood
The Tarentaise valley is famous for its snow sure winter resorts. All our properties are within easy reach of the big names – Val d’Isère, Tignes, Les Arcs, La Plagne and La Rosière with its link to the Italian La Thuile – as well as being at the foot of the slopes at Sainte Foy Tarentaise.

There's loads to do in summer too. You can choose to mountain bike, road cycle, hike, climb, play golf or tennis, swim, watch the Tour de France, indulge at the local wine fairs, or simply relax and soak up the sun.
Getting around
Whilst a car is not needed in the winter if you intend to ski mainly at Sainte Foy, it will make it easier if you want to ski at other resorts as public transport is limited and taxis are expensive.

In the summer a car is essential to be able to make the most of what the area has to offer.
