Property DescriptionWith private off-road parking that can accommodate up to 4 cars in front of the property, plus a garage (currently used as a stock room), there is ample room for parking at the property. In terms of entering the chalet, there are 2 options - one via the first-floor front door or from the ground floor parking and via a storage area with ski racks, a laundry room and access to a self-contained studio with its own kitchenette and en-suite bathroom. The final part of this floor is a cellar area for some additional storage. Coming up the stairs you access a first communal WC and the main entrance (outside of winter when you have skiing equipment to bring in) to the chalet, plus a second cloakroom. Next, you come into the bright living room with a reception/bar area and a comfortable seating area in front of the fantastic feature fireplace. This area also gives access to the fully equipped kitchen, the outdoor space and the dining room. It is then off this dining room that you access a good-sized double bedroom and its en-suite bathroom, to complete this floor. The outdoor area comprises a great covered terrace (perfect for eating outdoors when the weather permits), balcony and sizeable private garden with a fantastic south-westerly aspect. The next floor up has a mezzanine TV area with some great views out to the west and then 2 distinct sleeping wings, each with 3 bedrooms and a large bathroom plus a separate WC. These two wings could potentially be slightly modified if required as the walls are mostly just partition walls. The very top level of the chalet houses one last bedroom with some storage under the eaves and a WC and shower facilities. Les Granges is a lovely Savoyard village with both more traditional properties and also newer, large chalets, earning the (newer part of the) village the nickname the Belleville Beverley Hills! There are a reassuring number of inhabitants all year round, ensuring that there is always a good atmosphere in the village. The number of high-end chalets means that the winter sees an expansion in the number of people around to enjoy the slopes. Indeed, it is possible to ski back to the village via an off-piste itinerary (which should be undertaken only with professional guidance). Alternatively, the village is on the free bus routes between St Martin and Les Menuires. For families, there is a children’s play area in the village as well as a bus route that serves the local schools, and for those that like the finer things in life, there is a restaurant with 2 Michelin stars within walking distance of the village! Accessing the village is straightforward with Moutiers situated 24km (~30 minutes) down the road and with it the bigger supermarkets and other amenities such as the TGV/Eurostar terminal during the winter months. Lyon and Geneva airports are just over 2 hours away (185km and 187km respectively)
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.
