Property Description

Situated in tranquil Villarabout, this 3 bedroom property of 136 sqm is spread over two floors with an additional basement level spanning the whole length of the house, which could be made to further use. This stand alone village property consists of an entrance hall, a spacious double garage, a cellar, an open plan living area with kitchen, lounge and dining room, separate toilets, laundry room, 3 double bedrooms, a large bathroom with a second WC, a garden and 6 exterior parking spaces.

Its location in Villarabout- which sits just 1 km from Saint Martin de Belleville and offers a free ski bus- makes it perfectly suited to enjoy every aspect of the alpine lifestyle both during the winter and summer. The property is set back from the village road making it a very tranquil location in the heart of Villarabout on a generous plot of land of 590 m2. This stand alone property was built not so long ago in 2003 and is a lovely family home with a functional layout providing direct access from the living room / dining area into the garden and outdoor dining area where you can enjoy the mountain views and sunshine.

As you enter the property through the entrance hall on the ground hall, the property opens up into a spacious living area with kitchen, dining area and living room with a fireplace. The living room leads out into the garden and to an outdoor seating area via the French windows making it a functional living area with easy access to the exterior. On this level there is also a guest WC, a laundry room and a generous double sized garage with excellent storage.

The staircase from the living room leads up to the first floor and its 3 very large double bedrooms, all of which are over 14 sqm in size and boasting fantastic mountain views. This floor also houses a small office space and a family bathroom comprising a bathtub, a shower and an additional toilet. This level features high ceilings with the exposed timber roof beams giving a true spacious feel.

On the lower ground floor at basement level is a cellar and over 80sqm of space which could have multiple uses and be converted into a laundry room, spa area, wine cellar or other possibilities. There is the possibility to create a direct access to the living area of the property as the owners left an opening in the floor ready to install an interior staircase.

This unique family home is completely habitable as it is or alternatively, offers numerous possibilities to create a large extension and modify the property to suit your needs and tastes by utilising the space and plot of land fully. With its ideal location, this property is a real gem on the market. Within a short distance to Saint Martin and its direct ski lifts and links to the renowned 3 Valleys ski area, it would make for a fantastic ski property, as well as a great place to enjoy what the sunny Belleville Valley has to offer in the summer time too! 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.
