Saint Martin de Belleville, station village
The resort is openned from mid december to end of april.
The guardian of traditions
Situated at the entrance to La Vallée des Belleville, at an altitude of 1 450 m, Saint Martin is a picture postcard alpine village. A gateway to the fabulous Les 3 Vallées ski area, it is an authentic village resort that also offers the access facilities, services and shops expected of a modern winter sports resort.
In the early 1980s the town hall suggested diversifying the development of the valley, which at that time was concentrated in the two mountain resorts, by a tourist development project grafted onto Saint Martin. This new property development, Les Grangeraies, added to the village without taking possession. The constructions combined the functionality of a resort together with a traditional architectural style. The volumes were limited, not exceeding four stories and fitted in perfectly to the existing buildings. At the same time, work was carried out on the ski area, creating the liaison of Saint Martin to the Les 3 Vallées ski area in 1982. Nowadays skiers join the Les 3 Vallées pistes from the village of Saint Martin using a 8-seater gondola. Cosy chalets, charming hotels and tourist residences welcome skiers from throughout Europe looking for authenticity.
