Sitting on a quiet side street, this chalet is in a superb spot at the top of the picturesque and friendly year-round village of St Jean – just 7km from the pistes of the 3 Valleys (at St Martin de Belleville). Recently renovated to a high standard and with incredible views of the local mountains up to Val Thorens and across to Mont Blanc – this is an opportunity not to miss!
In front of the property is a large private parking area, with enough space to fit 3 cars. From here, you then enter into the chalet’s spacious and light entrance foyer. There is the first of the bedrooms (a double) off this foyer, which has its own en-suite bathroom (shower, sink and WC) and also plenty of storage. Finally, this floor gives access to the very spacious boot room, garage and laundry area within the chalet – a combined 26 square metres.
The middle floor of the property houses the cosy, yet spacious open-plan living room with its central fireplace, dining table area and large, modern kitchen, plus a double bedroom with its en-suite bathroom (shower, sink and WC). This level also gives access out onto the balcony with fantastic views over the village and also the south-facing deck, which is perfect for enjoying the sunshine throughout the year.
The top floor of the chalet comprises a great family bathroom with both bath and large Italian-style shower, WC and sink unit; the master double bedroom with lots of storage and its own Juliette balcony; and a final bedroom currently set up as a children’s bedroom with lots more storage under the eaves.
The chalet is underfloor heated to supplement the wood burning stove in the living area and there is lots of storage throughout – something of a rarity in many ski properties.
The village of St Jean is around 7km from St Martin de Belleville with its shops, restaurants, bars and speedy access into the 3 Valleys ski area (the 2 lifts that whisk you up the hill have both been upgraded since 2017 to improve their efficiency, including the gondola being upgraded for winter '19/20). There is also a local bar/restaurant located in the next village down (Villarly, just 1.6km away) that is open all year round. The Belleville Valley is a stunning place to live across all four distinct seasons with activities for the whole family in addition to the skiing (the 3 Valleys being the world’s largest linked ski area with unparalleled access and endless off-piste routes). Locals and ex-pats alike are very welcoming and it is a fantastic spot as a permanent base, holiday home or for investment. Please see my portfolio for all our ski properties in the Belleville Valley.
Three Valleys Ski Area
A beautiful place all year with highly defined seasons and quiet and tranquil out of the ski season when the crowds have gone home, and then suddenly once again each winter the mountains of the Three Valleys come alive with people enjoying this vast ski area..... the largest linked skiing in the world.
The Three Valleys ski domain provides more than 600km of runs and probably the same again off-piste. In fact it should now be called the Four Valleys with the link into Orelle (Maurienne Valley) which can be accessed by ski from Val Thorens. This has also opened up some extraordinary off-piste runs. The Three Valleys provides direct links between the ski resorts of St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Méribel, Mottaret, La Tania, Brides les Bains and the four Courchevel resorts, la Praz, 1550, 1650 and the world famous 1850 – and now Orelle, in the fourth valley - all under one ski pass offering on-piste skiing from 1300m all the way up to 3200m. As these figures show the Three Valleys ski area offers huge altitude differences favouring long run skiing.
It has an ultra efficient, state of the art ski lift system, quality piste preparation and a dense artificial snow making system (1920 snow cannons) complementing the excellent natural snow cover. However, if you are not a fan of downhill skiing or like some variety during your stay then you can also roam the domain at your leisure on foot, hiking along the marked trails, or using the pedestrian ski lift passes. Many trails have been created especially to enjoy the increasingly popular snowshoeing sport and to discover the valleys from a new perspective: flora, wildlife, monuments, and spectacular scenery.There are also many cross-country skiing tracks that are prepared and maintained each day. These allow you to take in the breathtaking scenery and provide the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the mountains away from the pistes.
An interesting and wonderful area all year round, there is much more here than the snow sports.
Saint Martin de Belleville Ski Resort
Based at 1400m and directly linked into the vast Three Valleys network by an 8 person gondola, St Martin de Belleville offers unlimited, world-class skiing.
The village is picture perfect, unspoiled and authentic making St Martin de Belleville the perfect ski resort if you are looking for a taste of authentic France combined with state of the art skiing. Clusters of traditional chalets and original Savoyard farmhouses are dominated by the close mountains with chamois and wild boars roaming free in the surrounding forests. St Martin was voted a “Top Ten Picture Postcard resort” for its pretty, traditional architecture and stunning Alpine scenery, it’s interesting to note that the commune have had the foresight to bury all the electric and phone cabling which means that not only does it have a clean uncluttered look, but you are unlikely to lose power when the snow hits!
As an added bonus Val Thorens, officially the highest resort in Europe is situated at the top of the valley offering great skiing from mid-November to mid-May. St Martin also has some of the best and clearest runs in the Three Valleys; with skiing for all levels back down to the village and red run Jerusalem a firm favourite with many, and the confidence inspiring off-piste powder fields have to be experienced to be believed. In the height of summer during July and August the valley is host to walkers, nature lovers and adventure seekers who arrive to enjoy the traditional and less traditional mountain activities along with the colourful mountain meadows and beauty of the contrasting vibrant green against snow capped mountains.
It is also a near neighbour to the Vanoise Park, a protected area of outstanding natural beauty. St Martin de Belleville has a lower key nightlife than its glitzy neighbours. Having said that, the valley boasts two Michelin starred restaurants, one being situated three minutes from the village, the other in Val Thorens. St Martin itself has several friendly bars and restaurants which retain a mountain village atmosphere with prices to match. This ski resort seems ideal for ski and mountain lovers looking for an authentic atmosphere a little apart from the crowds, and out of season it still has life and enough year round residents to stop it feeling like a ghost town.
