Attractive 2-bedroom barn conversion with character situated 1.5km from St Martin ski lifts linking to 3 Valleys
- 5 minutes drive to ski resort
- Mountain views.
This cosy barn conversion is nestled in one of St Martin de Belleville’s closest and prettiest satellite village’s just 1km from the ski lifts linking to the vast Three Valleys ski area. The barn is a great combination of old alpine wood with modern fixtures and fittings making this 2-bedroom property a fantastic home or ski base in the Three Valleys.
Laid over three floors, the barn has been cleverly converted to deliver a functional use of space with plenty of storage.
On the ground floor there is an entrance with storage, a separate ski room with plenty of storage for sports equipment, a laundry/utility room and spacious bathroom with freestanding bath and shower.
As you come up to the first floor, there is a large amount of natural light thanks to the large bay windows, which used to be the barn doors. Here you have a fully equipped kitchen with dining table. This floor is on a split-level with two steps leading to the first double bedroom with separate shower room and WC.
The top floor is under the eaves with a comfortable lounge/TV room that leads into a spacious family bedroom with a double bed and two twin beds. The barn conversion has been finished to a high quality with attention to detail all whilst keeping its character.
This village is an all year round location with plenty of activities on offer throughout the seasons. For off piste skiers, there is the possibility to ski back to the village via off piste routes when the snow conditions allow. The village also marks the end of the fourth valley which is called the Vallée des Encombres which offers numerous off piste ski routes which end in the village. It is also a well-known starting point for ski touring itineraries and snow shoeing excursions.
Summer activities in the valley include mountain biking, road biking, hiking, fishing, paragliding, climbing, via ferratas and many more… The warm summer months and fantastic scenery make it a great summer destination for those who love the outdoors. The village has its own restaurant, which is renowned for its use of fresh local produce and friendly atmosphere. The community is very welcoming making you feel immediately at home among the locals.
With its fantastic location, this 2-bedroom barn conversion is a great base for those looking to make the most of the mountains and outdoor activities all year round.
Three Valleys Ski Area
A beautiful place all year with highly defined seasons and quiet and tranquil out of the ski season when the crowds have gone home, and then suddenly once again each winter the mountains of the Three Valleys come alive with people enjoying this vast ski area..... the largest linked skiing in the world.
The Three Valleys ski domain provides more than 600km of runs and probably the same again off-piste. In fact it should now be called the Four Valleys with the link into Orelle (Maurienne Valley) which can be accessed by ski from Val Thorens. This has also opened up some extraordinary off-piste runs. The Three Valleys provides direct links between the ski resorts of St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Méribel, Mottaret, La Tania, Brides les Bains and the four Courchevel resorts, la Praz, 1550, 1650 and the world famous 1850 – and now Orelle, in the fourth valley - all under one ski pass offering on-piste skiing from 1300m all the way up to 3200m. As these figures show the Three Valleys ski area offers huge altitude differences favouring long run skiing.
It has an ultra efficient, state of the art ski lift system, quality piste preparation and a dense artificial snow making system (1920 snow cannons) complementing the excellent natural snow cover. However, if you are not a fan of downhill skiing or like some variety during your stay then you can also roam the domain at your leisure on foot, hiking along the marked trails, or using the pedestrian ski lift passes. Many trails have been created especially to enjoy the increasingly popular snowshoeing sport and to discover the valleys from a new perspective: flora, wildlife, monuments, and spectacular scenery.There are also many cross-country skiing tracks that are prepared and maintained each day. These allow you to take in the breathtaking scenery and provide the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the mountains away from the pistes.
An interesting and wonderful area all year round, there is much more here than the snow sports.
Saint Martin de Belleville Ski Resort
Based at 1400m and directly linked into the vast Three Valleys network by an 8 person gondola, St Martin de Belleville offers unlimited, world-class skiing.
The village is picture perfect, unspoiled and authentic making St Martin de Belleville the perfect ski resort if you are looking for a taste of authentic France combined with state of the art skiing. Clusters of traditional chalets and original Savoyard farmhouses are dominated by the close mountains with chamois and wild boars roaming free in the surrounding forests. St Martin was voted a “Top Ten Picture Postcard resort” for its pretty, traditional architecture and stunning Alpine scenery, it’s interesting to note that the commune have had the foresight to bury all the electric and phone cabling which means that not only does it have a clean uncluttered look, but you are unlikely to lose power when the snow hits!
As an added bonus Val Thorens, officially the highest resort in Europe is situated at the top of the valley offering great skiing from mid-November to mid-May. St Martin also has some of the best and clearest runs in the Three Valleys; with skiing for all levels back down to the village and red run Jerusalem a firm favourite with many, and the confidence inspiring off-piste powder fields have to be experienced to be believed. In the height of summer during July and August the valley is host to walkers, nature lovers and adventure seekers who arrive to enjoy the traditional and less traditional mountain activities along with the colourful mountain meadows and beauty of the contrasting vibrant green against snow capped mountains.
It is also a near neighbour to the Vanoise Park, a protected area of outstanding natural beauty. St Martin de Belleville has a lower key nightlife than its glitzy neighbours. Having said that, the valley boasts two Michelin starred restaurants, one being situated three minutes from the village, the other in Val Thorens. St Martin itself has several friendly bars and restaurants which retain a mountain village atmosphere with prices to match. This ski resort seems ideal for ski and mountain lovers looking for an authentic atmosphere a little apart from the crowds, and out of season it still has life and enough year round residents to stop it feeling like a ghost town.
