A Guide to Saint Martin de Belleville
Saint Martin de Belleville is often described as the prettiest village in the Three Valleys ski area. It is a stunning picturesque traditional alpine village with a number of great shops, bars and restaurants. Thanks to the express bubble lift out of the village, accessing Meribel, Les Menuires and the rest of the World's largest ski area is incredibly easy.
At 1450m, Saint Martin de Belleville is the lowest resort in the Val Thorens (Belleville) valley. Unlike the other two resorts in the valley, St Martin has a very traditional French alpine feel to it and it is an incredibly picturesque village.
St Martin is a family popular destination for famillies as it has a very friendly atmosphere, largely due to the resort having a year round community. There is a great selection of bars and restaurants, as well as some small shops, a butchers, a bakery and a small supermarekt so it is perfect for a self-catered holiday.
