Situated in one of St Martin's finest residences, this large, light and airy 3-bedroom apartment - in which all the bedrooms have en-suite facilities - makes the living room, kitchen and dining area the real star of the show. Here there is a great deal of glazing to both flood this space with light and to bring focus onto the fantastic and uninterrupted views the property enjoys: the Belleville Valley down towards St Jean and the stunning Vallée des Encombres. The property also has its own utility room, cellar and private parking space.
Accessed through the clean and well-maintained communal areas and lifts, this apartment cleverly houses the bedrooms such that each enjoys its own outdoor space but is also slightly tucked away from the main living area and balcony. This living area incorporated the fully-equipped, modern and sleek kitchen, dining area adjacent to the kitchen and then the living room with its open fireplace and comfortable seating area. Off this living space is the fantastic wraparound balcony with the superb views of the local mountain scenery, accessed by the large double doors.
The bedrooms themselves are all equipped with plenty of storage options (as is the entrance hallway), and two of the rooms have shower rooms en-suite, whilst the third has a bath (with incorporated shower). The large cellar, which has its own ski boot driers is located close to the apartment and down on the ground floor is the private garage, located amongst those of the other apartments in the development. Inside the apartment itself, there is a compact utility room with washing machine and tumble drier as well as space for storing equipment.
The development itself, completed in 2011, has its own gym, table tennis and darts area and billiard table. It is a short walk up into the centre of St Martin to access the skiing, shops and restaurants, though there is a free ski bus stop in front of the residence. Currently used as a private ski residence, the property could also be rented out to generate an income, as some of the other similar properties in the development are currently used in this fashion.
St Martin de Belleville is cementing its place among the most attractive places to own a ski property, given its authentic, all-year-round village feel, great range of restaurants and, most importantly, the easy access into the Three Valleys ski area – the world’s largest. The Belleville Valley (300km of pistes across St Martin, Les Menuires and Val Thorens) indeed covers half of the total ski area (600km of pistes including the resorts of Meribel and Courchevel) of the Three Valleys and with numerous off-piste itineraries, is a great place to base yourself.
The village itself is sunny and traditional, pre-dating the skiing by centuries! There are many locals who live here all year round, both French families who have lived here for generations and a sizeable ex-pat community, meaning you can easily either dip in and out of the community whilst holidaying or live here permanently. During the summer months, when the village erupts into a floral haven, there are many activities to be undertaken, from mountain biking to via ferrata to glorious mountain walks – suitable for all ages. Of course the road biking opportunities are almost endless too, and the valley is great for families with a variety of children’s activities. For accessing the village, Moutiers is just 20km down the mountain road and with it the TGV/Eurostar terminal (during the winter), and the airports of Geneva (182km) and Lyon (181km) are also within striking distance (approx. 2 hours).
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.
