When you have to choose a top ski resort as part of the world-famous 3 Valleys, you might say Courchevel, Meribel or maybe even Val Thorens but Saint Martin de Belleville is probably not going to be one of them.
But for those who have already discovered Saint Martin de Belleville, there is no going back. Unlike the bigger resorts on Les 3 Vallées circuit, this is an authentic French village providing a luxury ski destination, and at a more affordable price too.
Saint Martin de Belleville not only provides speedy access to all of the astonishing skiing of Les 3 Vallées; it’s also a charming, elegant and established resort with a true farming legacy. In more good news, for the next winter the central access gondola has been improved with its capacity increased by a third to reach the top of the slopes more easily than ever. In the French Alps, it is somewhat rare for a 500-year-old village to have ski-in, ski-out ski properties (and new ones for that matter). w know of other beautiful French villages – Samoens springs to mind – that also have access to skiing, but none with the ease of Saint Martin de Belleville.
Activities and top food in Saint Martin
There are also loads of very special events to enjoy in Saint Martin de Belleville which will make your holiday definitely one to remember, including the chance to try a dog sledging adventure with professional musher, Dany, and his team of dogs. Once you’re wrapped up warmly you will enjoy being pulled along in a sledge by a snowy river. Truly magical!
Foodies will also cherish the exceptional cuisine waiting to be discovered in St Martin. There are many excellent eateries, but the famous (family-run) “La Bouitte” in the nearby hamlet of Saint Marcel is one of the best in the whole of the Alps, having obtained its third Michelin star in 2015. Run by father and son, they are among a very little group of chefs to have been awarded three Michelin stars.
In addition, last season the owners opened a bistro called Simple et Meilleur, a wonderful new mountain tapas bar in Saint Martin de Belleville.
This winter a holiday in St Martin de Belleville is set to be better than ever too with the new Lys outdoor spa, where you can unwind in one of 5 hot tubs in the centre of the village, open each evening once the ski lifts close.
