The «country» of Saint Martin de Belleville

Neither a postcard village, nor a resort parody, Saint Martin is, above all, loyal to what it was : an authentic Savoyard village, dominated by its church tower, with its winding narrow streets and stone clad farms whose doors open onto vaulted stables. The village is, of course, equipped to welcome its guests, but has lost nothing of its simplicity The farms have sometimes been transformed into cosy accommodation, the ancient stables into restaurants and the church hosts concerts, but the village soul is still present.

More emotion

Those looking to discover the mountains other than on the pistes, are not left out. Walks on foot or snowshoes, a dog-sledge getaway, heritage discoveries, shows and torchlight descents are on offer throughout the winter. Not forgetting the musical après-ski concerts in the church. Saint Martin also has a great “terroir” where the names of good restaurants are passed on like well kept secrets. From the farm-inn with its home-produce menus, to the gastronomic restaurant and its two stars, the temptations are numerous. Will you be able to resist ?

citation

The real Savoy, its scents and chalets, its fun inns and restaurants for zealous skiers, we have looked for it everywhere. From valley to valley, via resorts pretending to be « real» villages. Then one day we found it, in the hollow of a lost valley, not far from Moutiers station, with its yesteryear mini-villages, slate roofs and patois speaking inhabitants. This isl what is called a « country ».
