St Martin de Belleville

The jewel in the rather sparkly crown of the Three Valleys ski area, St Martin de Belleville is a charmingly quaint mountain village.

With fabulous skiing AND being a critically-acclaimed foodie paradise, it’s a real hidden gem amongst the big name resorts of Val Thorens, Courchevel and Meribel.

The baroque church and snow-topped roofs of St Martin lie at the gateway to the Belleville Valley. At 1450m, this picturesque resort is at the same altitude as neighbouring Méribel, thus enjoying a good coverage of snow with skiing up to 3300m.

Nowhere else can you wallow in a traditional alpine village and still be within such easy reach of the huge expanse of skiing that the Three Valleys has to offer.

St Martin de Belleville is also a true foodie’s paradise, having won ‘Best Gastronomic Resort of the Year’ in the 2016 World Snow Awards. With Michelin stars galore and fabulously rustic farms producing incredible cheeses, there’s a huge range of gourmet opportunities to explore during your stay.

With a small (but perfectly formed) selection of low-key, civilised drinking establishments, a rowdy après-ski resort this is not! The emphasis is on relaxed drinks with friends, in a bar where you can hear each other speak. There’s some live music to be found during the week, ask your host for details or read our Bars & Restaurants page.

If more active après-ski is more your thing, the valleys offer a huge variety – from husky sledging, paragliding, ice driving and snowmobiling. St Martin has a new ice-skating rink open in the afternoons. Next to the church and with a view of the mountains, it’s a lovely place to absorb the friendly village atmosphere.

And what does The Telegraph make of St Martin de Belleville?

“While St Martin has a sleepy profile, its lifts are modern – a fast gondola followed by a fast chairlift ascend from the village to the ridge above the Belleville and Les Allues valleys…. In the village, modern architecture respects the old farmhouses and 17th-century church. Staying here offers a radically different experience from neighbouring Trois Vallées resorts.”
