St-Martin-de-Belleville

St-Martin-de-Belleville is the gateway to Les 3 Vallées

Just a few miles down the valley from Les Menuires, St-Martin-de-Belleville offers a quiet, family-friendly base from which to explore Les 3 Vallées. A backwater farming village until the 1980s, St-Martin-de-Belleville is evolving as a hidden gem where skiers return to again and again. The resort gives you a taste of old-fashioned France, providing a more relaxed pace to your holiday - if you’re looking for a party then this is not the place for you. In terms of accommodation, the resort is seeing increasing investment with the addition of several new luxury ski chalets and apartments adding value to the area.

One of the best connected resorts in Les 3 Vallées, it takes less than 15 minutes to take the gondola and six-person chair lift up to the ridge that separates St-Martin-de-Belleville and Méribel. From here you have around 600 km of terrain at your disposal, plus a generous amount of off-piste skiing in between. Rolling blues and reds lead back down to St-Martin or you can ski over to Méribel and on into Courchevel.

St-Martin is a family-friendly ski resort

For a small resort, St-Martin-de-Belleville has an impressive number of restaurants, both on, and off, the mountain. The star attraction is La Bouitte, a 3-Michelin star restaurant in the neighbouring village of St-Marcel-de-Belleville. Despite its reputation for a rather low-key nightlife, St-Martin does have over a dozen bars to choose from. One of the best things to do after skiing is to indulge yourself at the wonderful La Bela Vya spa, which offers treatments based around mountain hay, milk and honey.

Given its quiet ambiance, St-Martin-de-Belleville is one of the best resorts in the area for families. Aside from skiing, other activities on offer include dog sledding and snowshoeing. The village is proud of its history and you can discover more about its past in the Museum of Saint-Martin or take a guided tour of the village by torchlight.
