St. Martin de Belleville

St Martin de Belleville is a picturesque hidden gem at the entrance of the world-famous Three Valleys ski area, a peaceful and relatively authentic Savoyard ski village which avoids the crowds of the larger resorts. Universally accepted as the prettiest ski village in the Belleville valley, it has excellent links to the Meribel Valley and Les Menuires. Access from the village up the mountain is better than ever thanks to the installation of a brand-new gondola in the 2019/2020 season, giving the best of both worlds.

St Martin de Belleville is a picturesque hidden gem at the entrance of the world-famous Three Valleys ski area, a peaceful and relatively authentic Savoyard ski village which avoids the crowds of the larger resorts. Universally accepted as the prettiest ski village in the Belleville valley, it has excellent links to the Meribel Valley and Les Menuires. Access from the village up the mountain is better than ever thanks to the installation of a brand-new gondola in the 2019/2020 season, giving the best of both worlds. 


Despite its picture-perfect chalets and fairytale vistas, St Martin is a resort for skiers who mean business too: there are more than 600km of pistes to explore for skiers of all ages and abilities. Over half of the local trails in the huge are are gentle for novices & beginners, but the resort offers challenging skiing and jumps under the St Martin Express chair too. 

St Martin’s characteristic wood and stone architecture makes for some charming chalets and hotels, built in keeping with the local scenery, yet boasting luxury and comfort on the inside. What’s more, the village is a culinary hotspot within the Alps, with a 3 Michelin starred restaurant at La Bouitte and plenty of stunning independent eateries.

Non-skiing activities

Being such a charming village has its perks for non-skiers too, with plenty of boutique shops and cafés to while away an afternoon when you don’t fancy hitting the slopes. For more physical excursions, snowshoeing by night, electric scooters on the snow, and skidoo snowmobile trips are fun alternatives. Head up to Chalet du Sunny restaurant on a piste-basher for a truly unique mode of transport, or spend a couple of hours dog-sledding – a family friendly activity through forests and village scenery. Thrill seekers can have a go at ice diving, paragliding or zip-lining in nearby Val Thorens, while those in need of a pamper can enjoy a massage at La Bouitte’s 5* spa.
