Welcome to

Saint Martin de Belleville

Sitting at the base of the Belleville Valley (below Les Menuires and Val Thorens), Saint Martin is a picture-perfect Savoyard mountain village with an old church, a small village square ... and fast access to The Three Valleys – the world’s largest ski area with 600km of piste! The long, fast ski from Tougnete down Jerusalem and Biolley and ending up on one of the deck chairs at La Dahlia is one of life’s greatest pleasures!

Despite being a small resort, Saint Martin has four restaurants listed in the Michelin guide - including three Michelin-starred La Bouitte - and a good, if not crazy, apres-scene. With a small branch of ESF and some lovely chalets that are located right on the slopes and next to the chairlift, Saint Martin is an ideal destination for families and those seeking access to great skiing with prices that have fallen in line with the altitude!

Flying - There are a few options when it comes to your destination airport; but Geneva is the recommended option because of greater flexibility for transfers and car hire to take you onto Saint Martin. The transfer is 185 kms and takes around 2 hours 05 minutes.

Train - The Eurostar glides through France directly from London St Pancras to Bourg-Saint-Maurice in a little over seven-and-a-half hours and, from there, it’s 45km on to Saint Martin with taxi and transfer options available.

Driving - Drivers will find the roads through France faster and emptier than those in the UK and this is largely down to them being toll roads…so there is a price to pay! London to Saint Martin takes around 12 hours 15 minutes without stops and this includes the tunnel crossing.


If you're driving, it's worth stopping off in Moutiers or Albertville for the larger supermarkets. Saint Martin also has a Huit a Huit supermarket, a fantastic bakery – La Risolle – and a butcher in resort. You can also organise for fresh bread, pastries and many other food products to be delivered to your chalet too!

Only in France would a small mountain village play host to four restaurants listed in the Michelin guide, including La Bouitte which has three Michelin stars! There are some more family-orientated restaurants too including pizzeria la Voute and le Montagnard serving typical Savoyard dishes. On the slopes, there are some nice eateries including Au Chaudron Saint Martin and Chez Pépé Nicolas. La Dahlia at the base of the chairlift, Saint Martin 1 is also very good.


Not going to lie ... there is not a lot to do in Saint Martin for the non-skiers!

There are two Spas – Spa Leen Pao at Les Chalets du Gypse and Spa La Bouitte at the aforementioned super-restaurant (also a Hotel) but if you want to do much more than that, you will have to get in the car or on the bus! Further up the Valley in les Menuires, there is a cinema and a sports centre with squash courts, table tennis and a swimming pool.

The apres scene in Saint Martin is nice and fun if a little muted with just three main venues; there is the long-standing le Joker bar, a bar at the pizzeria, la Voute, and the Pourquoi Pas piano bar!
