Located at the entrance of the valley of Belleville, 1450 m altitude (up to 3230 m altitude at the top of the ski area), this small village you will definitely want to stay. Do not hesitate. In addition to its unique charm, Saint-Marcel is part of the 3 Valleys ski area. The joy of a traditional Savoyard village combined with the pleasure of fantastic skiing and culinary discovery of a 3-star Michelin restaurant "La Bouitte"
Saint-Marcel is a good alternative for ski enthusiasts looking for an authentic village, off the beaten track. There is no noisy discotheque, but the cozy softness of Christmas villages of our childhood.
The nearest access to the slopes ((550 m) of the vast ski area of the Three Valleys (Menuires, Val Thorens, Meribel, Courchevel) will allow you to enjoy the intense skiing or to return to the chalet off piste. You will find all the shops in the village of Saint-Martin de Belleville.
Intermediate skiers will find endless opportunities to explore the 3 Valleys as a whole. Good level of skiers and snowboarders will not be left with a choice of bumps, steep slopes or off-piste in almost every corner of the ski area. The area of Orelle above Val Thorens is particularly the blow. Skiers with no experience can start on a beginners' slope from the village center.
In summer, hiking (trails perfectly signposted) may start from the chalet to enjoy stunning views, cross cows, goats or sheep, see marmots and eagles. Many other activities at lower cost thanks to a multiloisirs card are also available and free daily shuttle between St. Martin and Val Thorens.
From Saint-Martin gondola 8 seats and a chair lift will take you in 20 minutes at the summit of the mountain (elevation: 2,400 m) from which you can ski on the field of St. Martin, or that of Méribel, or reach on skis directly Menuires. From Les Menuires, return to Saint-Martin is live (top of the chairlift of Becca), and offers an easy 8 km descent.
When snow conditions allow it is possible to ski back to the chalet off piste.
