Why choose St Martin de Belleville for a second home?

Posted on Tuesday 19th March 2019 by Steve Thomas

Choosing somewhere to buy a holiday property is a huge decision - you’re choosing the place you could be spending most of your holidays for years to come. With so many gorgeous resorts in the Alps, what is it that makes St Martin de Belleville stand out?

Charm

Not all ski resorts are created equal; though you might imagine a charming village of traditional buildings, it’s not always the case. Some ski resorts are full of modern hotels and apartment buildings, which could reduce their Alpine charm.

Not so St Martin de Belleville, which is a beautiful, authentic Savoyard village complete with narrow streets, clock tower and traditionally clad Alpine buildings. When you buy property in St Martin de Belleville, you can expect a snowy winter wonderland in the winter and beautiful meadows and views in the summer.

Size

St Martin de Belleville is large enough to have all of the amenities that one might expect from a top class ski resort - shops, restaurants, spas and even a small museum. You’ll even find a Michelin starred restaurant in this not-so-sleepy hamlet.

That said, the resort doesn’t cover a sprawling area, and is small enough to feel friendly and intimate - the perfect size, some might say.

Slopes

Of course, if you’re buying a home in St Martin de Belleville the chances are you’re a keen skier - and the area won’t disappoint. A speedy gondola from the village offers access to the Meribel and Les Menuires ski areas, while you can ski back to the village via an easy blue run or a more adventurous red run (the Jerusalem run).

All things considered, St Martin de Belleville is a ski resort that offers the best of all worlds, less bustling than some but with plenty to do on non-skiing days. To find out more about our properties for sale in St Martin de Belleville, get in touch today.
