Savoie Property

Generous one bedroom apartment of 32m2 right on the piste and next to the ski lift of St Martin de Belleville. On the market for €215,250.

This apartment would make anyone an excellent ski base, right in the hub of the departure point of the St Martin 1 gondola this is an interesting and vibrant location. You can stroll to the telecabin in a matter of moments and ski back to the apartment at the end of the ski day. Not only this but the balcony overlooks this point which make it a great place for people watching and as its south facing a great place for sunbathing and dining outside.

If you've never skied from St Martin de Belleville then you don't know what you're missing, this is a gem of a ski resort. Not only does it link directly into the four valleys of Meribel, Courchevel and Orelle but it also has Les Menuires and Val Thorens in the same valley, which, considering that Val Thorens has the highest skiing in Europe and both have some of the best off-piste runs anywhere, means you are on to a very good snow thing! The ski area is called the Three Valleys (les Trois Vallées) and the name was not changed even when the forth valley of Orelle became part of the system. All of these locations are available on one ski pass or you can buy local passes if you are happy with the local area, which in itself is plenty for many skiers and boarders.

Travelling here is very straight forward:

The TGV / Snow trains stops at the bottom of the valley 20 mins away.

Or fly into one of the international airports within 2 hours drive; Geneva, Grenoble and Lyon. The smaller airport of Chambery is just over an hour away. Driving is also straightforward as the motorways arrive just short of Albertville then jump on the N90 until you reach the turning signed "Vallée de Belleville" and then you'll know you're 20 minutes from the ski slopes of St Martin de Belleville and your first turns!
