Much more than a back-door into the Trois Vallées

Saint Martin de Belleville punches above its weight. A charming unspoilt Alpine village, that is connected efficiently into the vast 3 Valleys ski area. Well endowed with good restaurants, it was gastronomic resort of the year in 2016. The famous La Bouitte, just up the road, was the first 3-star restaurant in Savoie. Accommodation can be found in a choice of slope-side or nearby apartments and chalets. St. Martin’s own ski area is limited to a few easy but pleasant runs, and connecting to Les Menuires and over to Méribel is easy and recommended. Val Thorens and Courchevel are both comfortably within range for day excursions.

Property for Sale and Rent in St. Martin de Belleville

Such a large well joined-up and snow-sure ski area is a huge benefit for property owners, these are key criteria in our view. One, two and three bedroom properties are clustered in and around the village, planning is strictly in the Alpine vernacular, older farm buildings have been renovated and new developments are in keeping. With prices in the same bracket as Meribel Village, St. Martin de Belleville is a worthy alternative value proposition to ownership or rental in the 3 Valleys.

A guide to Saint Martin de Belleville

Saint Martin de Belleville in the Belleville Valley is a lived-in, unspoiled village with an old church in the central square and buildings of wood and stone, a few miles down the valley from Les Menuires. Full of rustic charm and character, Saint Martin de Belleville offers quick and easy access to the 3 Valleys but is secluded and tucked away from the commercialisation of the rest of the ski area. Staying here offers a radically different experience from neighbouring Trois Vallées resorts. There’s a good range of accommodation in Saint Martin de Belleville, with a fine choice of chalets and apartments to rent.

Saint Martin de Belleville ski area

St Martin is one of the best-connected resorts in the 3 Valleys. The new eight-person gondola whisks skiers up to mid-station 35% faster than in previous years, and the still new 6-person Express chairlift will complete the journey to the top of the mountain providing access to the Méribel pistes, Les Menuires and Val Thorens all within easy reach, and the full extent of the magnificent Trois Vallées ski network. Beginners will be fine on the resort’s nursery slope while intermediates are spoilt with St Martin de Belleville’s legendary piste, Jerusalem. Some highly regarded wide-open off-piste terrain can be found on the upper slopes of the valley.

The village is at an altitude of 1450m and since many of the slopes are south facing, just in case, there are plenty of snow cannons on the lower slopes, ensuring skiers can return to the village on skis until the end of the season.

28km of cross-country skiing is available locally.

Après ski in Saint Martin de Belleville

It is a quiet affair compared to its neighbours, but still offers some great spots for après ski drinks. Some of these are located slope side so actually get quite buzzy at the end of the ski day. The Piano bar, which is tucked behind the church in the centre of the village, has live music on two evenings each week and is a popular spot.

Eating Out in Saint Martin de Belleville

Despite its size, St Martin still a lot to offer when it comes to cuisine, winning ‘Best Gastronomic Resort of the Year in the 2016 World Snow Awards. It has four restaurants listed in the Michelin guide. La Bouitte, which is nearby in St Marcel with 3 Michelin stars, needs no introduction. A nice touch, they provide a pick-up/drop-off service for visiting skiers for lunch. La Ferme Auberge Le Chantacouocu is also a farm serving their own produce, a unique experience that is not to be missed. The Eterlous and the Dahlia are both great spots for lunch or dinner.

Le Bouche à Oreille is owned by René and Maxime Meilleur of La Bouitte – but comes at a much lower price range. It is in a gorgeous setting at the top of the Roc de Trois Marches 2 and Granges chair-lifts, and has a delightful sun terrace.

Summer in Saint Martin de Belleville
