Treat yourselves to a stay at This Chalet located in the pretty village of Saint Martin de Belleville. This chalet is well placed in the main village, all the amenities are within walking distance. There is private parking for 4 cars and the chalet has a Wi-Fi Internet connection.
The owners and chalet hosts, Alison and Rob, have been living in Saint Martin de Belleville running a successful ski chalet company for the past 17 years. They designed the chalet to be spacious, bright and homely. It has many exposed beams which were reclaimed from old barns. These old timbers give the house much more character than new wood ever could. The layout of the chalet allows for 5 bedrooms all en-suite, 4 bedrooms are twin bedded and the 5th has a double bed with an additional 2 beds on a large mezzanine. The chalet sleeps up to 12 guests.
The lounge with its attractive beamed ceiling and lots of comfy seating is a great place to unwind with friends. The log burning stove soon chases away any chill from the cold mountain air. You will find CD and DVD players along with books and games. French windows give a panorama of the snowy mountain peaks and tiny lights glisten in the villages all the way down the valley. The farmhouse table has ample space for everyone.
There is a ski and boot room allowing everyone to get geared up before hitting the slopes. The boot racks do away with cold wet boots first thing in the morning. Next to the boot room they have a Sauna with space for up to 6 friends at a time.
The day begins around our farmhouse table with a reviving cup of freshly brewed coffee or tea accompanied by juices, cereals, eggs, yoghurt's, fruit, preserves and fresh bread from the bakery.
Refreshed it's off to the slopes........Maybe join us for a days skiing / boarding or if you prefer to explore the area on your own, no problem. The chalet is only 300 metres from the village centre so
you are free to come and go as you please. The hosts have a Land rover to transport you to the ski lifts if required.
When the sun goes down either head back to the chalet or sample a beer or two first. From the Piano bar most guests ski back across the field to the chalet. Freshly baked cakes and refreshments await you (no petit fours just well earned calories). Unwind a little. The sauna is warm and relaxing, the roll in the snow afterwards is invigorating, "apparently".
There is still time for a stroll around the village or maybe have a drink in front of the fire before we serve dinner.
Alison prepares all the food and her menus are a blend of classic French and British cuisine. They offer 4 courses including a cheeseboard, all accompanied by bottled wines direct from the vineyard.
For anyone with enough stamina the nightlife of Saint Martin awaits.
This chalet is NO SMOKING. The smoking room is outside but has a great view of the stars.
SLIPPERS. The hosts take great care in trying to keep the chalet clean and for this reason they ask you not to wear your outdoor shoes in the house. Please remember to bring your favourite slippers.
