Unique, piste-side opportunity in the heart of St Martin de Belleville (3 Valleys): Heritage property of 190 square metres with various possibilities. Currently run as a successful restaurant with 4 bedroom duplex apartment above, but could be also transformed into a superb individual chalet.
This is a one of just a handful of properties in the village with such proximity to the piste and central location. A new owner could continue to run the restaurant or transform the whole property into a magnificent ski-in, ski-out chalet. The duplex apartment sleeps up to 10 people and rents very well.

Starting with the residential element of this property, you enter on the first floor level, which houses the main living and dining area, as well as the kitchen and 2 double bedrooms. The living room has 2 double-width windows, which open out onto balconies that directly overlook the piste that comes down into the village centre, and the drag lift that takes you back up to the main gondola, plus an unparalleled view of the stunning old church. There is also a bathroom and a separate WC on this floor.

The top floor of the property houses a further 2 bedrooms, both of which can sleep 3 people in single beds, making the capacity of the apartment up to 10 people. There is one further bathroom on this level with a shower in it.

The ground floor of this property is the restaurant that has been in the same family for generations, and it is very well known locally for serving very good, traditional Savoie-inspired food. The décor reflects this deep rooting in the community and the welcome is always warm and friendly. The owners’ reason for selling is to focus on a different project within the valley, but a summary of accounts for this part of the sale can be provided as evidence of the profitability of the venture.

Given the size and nature of this entire property, the opportunities are almost endless: it could be kept exactly as it is, with the restaurant and self-catered apartment generating income for the owner; there is no obligation to continue running the restaurant, so this part of the property could be converted into habitable space and combined with the 2 floors above to create something absolutely outstanding, especially given the piste-side location; or any number of other combinations including finding a third party to take on the running of the restaurant etc.

St Martin de Belleville is cementing its place among the most attractive places to own a ski property, given its authentic, all-year-round village feel, great range of restaurants and, most importantly, the easy access into the Three Valleys ski area – the world’s largest. The Belleville Valley (300km of pistes across St Martin, Les Menuires and Val Thorens) indeed covers half of the total ski area (600km of pistes including the resorts of Meribel and Courchevel) of the Three Valleys and with numerous off-piste itineraries, is a great place to base yourself.

The village itself is sunny and traditional, pre-dating the skiing by centuries! There are many locals who live here all year round, both French families who have lived here for generations and a sizeable ex-pat community, meaning you can easily either dip in and out of the community whilst holidaying or live here permanently.

During the summer months, when the village erupts into a floral haven, there are many activities to be undertaken, from mountain biking to via ferrata to glorious mountain walks – suitable for all ages. Of course the road biking opportunities are almost endless too, and the valley is great for families with a variety of children’s activities.

For accessing the village, Moutiers is just 20km down the mountain road and with it the TGV/Eurostar terminal (during the winter), and the airports of Geneva (182km) and Lyon (181km) are also within striking distance (approx. 2 hours).
