Located on a quiet, sought-after road in the middle of the beautiful village of St Martin, this imposing chalet currently has 9 bedrooms and lends itself nicely to the rental market because of it. However, there is scope to reorganise the space to create an absolutely fantastic private ski chalet with access to the world's largest ski area. The amenities of the village are around a 5-minute walk away, as is the drag lift that takes you over to the gondola out of the village. This property is currently used as a rental property and sells very well throughout the winter. It makes the very most use of space at present for number of beds, so a new owner could keep it for such commercial use, or could consider undertaking some internal works (move some walls, re-configure rooms etc.) to create an absolutely fantastic, large private chalet.
Entering from the ground floor, you will find:
- A large garage area – perfect for storing skiing equipment and also summer activity equipment such as mountain bikes etc.
- A snug – currently used as an extra double bedroom with large sofa bed
- A double bedroom
- Bathroom with bath, shower and WC
- Large utility room with plenty of space for all machines for laundry etc.
- 6-person sauna with its own shower cubicle
The first floor, divided up into communal areas dominating most of the floor and a sleeping area at the other, consists of:
- Very large open-plan living and dining area with an imposing traditional fireplace, leading onto a balcony with spectacular views
- Good-sized, fully-equipped kitchen
- Cloakroom with storage space for shoes and coats, if using this floor’s entrance
- Large double bedroom
- Bunk room
- Bathroom with shower and WC
The top floor comprises:
- A suite, perfect for families with 2 bedrooms with sloping ceilings (one double and one twin) with shared bathroom in-between (shower & WC)
- A twin bedroom, again with sloped ceiling
- Large family bathroom with bath/shower, WC and double sinks
- Two further double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms (one with WC)
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.
