Tucked away halfway up the Belleville valley, St Martin de Belleville is perfectly located with quick and easy access to the family friendly resort of Les Menuires and all of the other resorts in the Three Valleys. It only takes two ski lifts to be able to ski in to Meribel and just three ski lifts to Courchevel. The village of St Martin is a far cry from the purpose built resorts of Tignes and Val Thorens with beautiful alpine features such as a lovely old church, museum, farmhouses and cobbled streets. The widespread village offers many luxury ski chalets with stunning views down the valley and sun soaked south facing terraces.
As far as luxury family ski resorts go, St Martin has everything one could ask for.

St Martin de Belleville is home to La Bouitte, widely regarded as the best mountain restaurant in Europe after its recently garnered third Michelin star. The Trois Vallées constitutes what many skiers rightly regard as the greatest intermediate playground in the world: a seemingly endless network of moderately graded runs that provide a challenge to all levels of skier. You can ski from the top of Les Menuires at 2700m all the way down to St Martin before taking a dip in your luxury chalet hot tub.
Skiers can experience over 600km of perfectly groomed slopes which cater for all ages and experience levels from beginners to thrill seeking experts. With famous spots such as the Saulire in Courchevel to the Cime Caron in Val Thorens you'll have some of the finest skiing at your pleasure.
St Martin de Bellville has many après ski options from the many lavish sun terraces on the home run back into resort to the family friendly bars and restaurants perfect to enjoy a nice hot vin chaud or delicious chocolat chaud. For the livelier folk out there the “P Bar” offers weekly live music and fun quizzes to suit all. There are not many late night bars in St Martin but if you were looking to over indulge you can easily get a taxi to Les Menuires or Val Thorens.
St Martin de Belleville offers a wide range of shops including boutiques offering local Savoyarde themed gifts perfect to take home, to the famous farmhouse shops which sell the region's top products such as Beaufort cheese and saucissons.
