- 5 minutes drive to ski resort
- Mountain views.
This converted barn situated in the prestigious 3 Valleys vast ski area retains original features, including stunning vaulted ceilings which frame the open-plan living area on the ground floor. In a quiet village setting, it is just 4km from the ski lifts in St Martin de Belleville. Currently a four-bed family home, there is planning permission to re-develop the property with a flexible layout. This converted barn would make an ideal project for someone looking to create their dream mountain hideaway.
Set on the edge of a small picturesque village in the 3 Valleys, the property benefits from a quiet, very private setting, with stunning mountain views. The chalet was originally a traditional local barn with a stone ground floor, the rare vaulted ceilings have been preserved and form a framework for the open-plan living space. The cosy living room benefits from a wood-burning stove set in an inglenook fireplace, solid oak flooring, a feature bar area, storage cave and separate WC. The characterful arched dining space is divided from the kitchen by a large breakfast bar island unit. The kitchen is spacious with room for all appliances and includes a professional dual-fuel cooker and extractor. This floor has south-facing windows and a door accessing the sunny South-facing patio and small well-maintained garden alongside the chalet.
The two floors above have not been fully developed, with the middle floor providing four bedrooms all with South-facing windows, a family bathroom, WC and spacious entrance hall, with barn doors opening to the North side.
The top floor remains as the original hayloft, with West-facing windows giving stunning views of the mountains and the valley. The roof is in traditional local slate and retains its original structure with impressive wooden beams. The original balcony runs the length of the house on the South side with steps to the ground. Solar panels and a back-boiler in the wood-burning stove supply heating for a 300L hot water tank plus two further water-based radiators. All other heating is electric. Planning permission has been obtained for external changes, to raise and replace the roof, change windows/doors/facades, replace the balcony, add a small side extension and update the drainage system.
Re-development of the top two floors of the chalet could create additional living space, en-suite bedrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors, sauna, boot room and entrance porch, according to individual requirements. Access to the property is very good with large barn doors on each side and level road access direct to the door on the North side. All doors and windows are fitted with traditional shutters. This property is located in a small hamlet 4km from the lifts at St Martin de Belleville. Access is via a rural road that is well-maintained and cleared by the snow-plough daily in the winter.
Béranger has an exclusive mountain village feel and some truly luxurious properties have recently been built and renovated here. The village is very picturesque and accessible for non-skiers, there are snow-shoe outings starting from here. This is the sunniest village in the Belleville valley due to its enviable position, there are amazing off-piste ski routes to the village from the top of the Olympic lift. Local restaurants including 3 Michelin Star ‘La Bouitte’ will collect you from the village at lunchtime or in the evening in their own transport.
Although renowned for skiing, the area is also a summer paradise for cyclists who can enjoy day trips to ride the many famous cols and routes across the area, or experience mountain-biking across the three valleys from their doorstep. Views from the property take in the amazing range of local wildlife and birdlife, from eagles and buzzards cruising the valley to deer grazing each night during the Spring.

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.
