St Martin de Belleville - full of charm and character

St Martin de Belleville, which is found in the bottom of the Belleville Valley in the Alps of eastern France, is not a large town, but it is one which draws back its visitors time after time. It has a real Savoyard charm and character, unlike many purpose built resorts. You will, of course, find all the attributes of a ski resort here, but underlying and underpinning it all is a real old town with a heart and history.

Postcard pretty

The town lies at the bottom of the valley, and its pretty wooden chalets with the mountain backdrop make a heart stoppingly attractive picture in any season. With links to the Three Valleys slopes for serious skiing, St Martin offers excellent snow sports for all levels of ability, and for all ages. And there is one huge benefit to St Martin. This is that the slopes are such that you ski home in the sun! Though on your return you might also wonder why you didn't come back earlier as there plenty of places for that last vin chaud on the slopes. The Ferme just above the tunnel into St Martin serves some of the best vins chauds around, and la Loy a bit further up is also good. Both have good terraces to sit in the sun, as well as fires inside.

Après ski scene

The town does have an après ski scene, although there are no nightclubs as such. The social scene revolves around the bars and even the local Salles des Fêtes. Why not try the Piano Bar or the Billog Bar/Restaurant? Both stay open late and the Piano Bar has live music.

Dining out, Savoyard style

The Savoie department has its own very distinctive gourmet style, and there are plenty of opportunities to sample this delicious mountain fare in St Martin de Belleville. The town has a number of excellent and very popular restaurants and eateries, with everything from pizzas to fine gourmet dining on offer. Should you be overtaken by hunger whilst out on the slopes, you can even dine at high altitude... there are three chalet-style restaurants at various locations up the mountains! Infact many people ski to St Martin for lunch, such is the standard of food.
