St Martin de Belleville: A secret treasure
There’s much to be said for going to the bigger Alpine ski resorts; you’ll find lots of amenities and plenty of choice when it comes to restaurants and accommodation. But venture off the beaten path, and you might find smaller resorts have much to offer too.
St Martin de Belleville is one such resort - and it could be the perfect secret hideaway for you this winter. Though it’s small, it’s perfectly formed. With three ski lifts, it’s at a similar altitude to the much larger resort of Meribel, but retains buckets of small-town Alpine charm.
Easy access to plenty of other resorts means that there’s little chance of getting bored. In one direction lie Meribel and Courchevel, whilst in the other direction it’s easy to get to Les Menuires and Val Thorens.
At St Martin de Belleville itself there are fewer runs - but those you can take on are amongst the best in the world. Jerusalem, a red run, is regularly listed as one of the top ten ski runs in the world, and with a recently added blue section for less confident skiers, it’s one your party is sure to enjoy.
Off piste skiing is also hugely popular, and for more experienced skiers it’s a great way to take in the majesty of this beautiful part of the world. It’s a good idea to go out with a guide, who can tailor routes to your experience, fitness level and stamina and make sure you get the most out of an off-piste experience.
But a ski holiday isn’t just about skiing - it’s also about the location and amenities. Well, worry not, not only is St Martin de Belleville one of the most beautiful and unspoilt resorts in the Alps, it also has its fair share of bars, restaurants and other amenities. And if you do fancy a change, you’ll have your pick of the other resorts in the area.
The great ski runs and gorgeous scenery make St Martin de Belleville a holiday home destination that ticks a lot of boxes. If you’re thinking of investing in property in the Alps, get in touch with us today to find out more about buying a chalet or apartment in St Martin de Belleville.
