With the school holidays coming up and the urge to take a nice break away from the hustle and bustle of daily routine looming, look for something a little different this year. And the ideal resort to try something different, spend quality time with the family, have a restful break and, most importantly, to ski? St Martin de Belleville! |
Whether you’re keen to introduce the family to the wonderful world of skiing, to enjoy the multitude of other snow sports on offer or to simply have fun in the snow, this resort has it all. What’s more, it is ideally located in the centre of the Three Valleys so while you’re having fun, you can also admire the breathtaking scenery.
Skiing with Little Ones
It couldn’t be easier for the little ones to learn to ski; St Martin de Belleville is a perfectly beautiful environment in which to teach them. Although the Three Valleys is renowned for its incredible altitudes and on- and off-piste terrains suitable for advanced skiers, there are plenty of opportunities for the kids to get involved as well. If anything, the fact that the slopes are high altitude and frequented by top skiers means that the snow conditions are ideal and the pistes are carefully maintained, so your family will be safe when trying out the slopes.
The lifts are easily accessible and there are even shuttle vehicles so you don’t need to carry the entire brood’s ski equipment (along with your kids!) through the village before getting to them. You can arrange lessons which take place on easy and safe slopes, and fast learners will have the opportunity to quickly progress to more exciting routes.
Alternative Activities in the Winter Wonderland
It’s not just the perfect place to ski – St Martin de Belleville also offers a host of alternative activities to enjoy as a family so take a break from the slopes and try something new while you’re there. Bring the kids to a walking or hiking path to really appreciate the gorgeous setting and be sure to make the most of the fresh snow by building snowmen or having a snowball fight.
For more adrenaline-fuelled fun, you can enjoy snowshoeing; it’s an experience you’re unlikely to have tried before but bound to love! Tobogganing and huskie sledge rides are also going to be a real hit with the kids.
At the end of a snowy fun day, enjoy a relaxed bite to eat in one of the atmospheric restaurants in the village.
Where to Stay
There are plenty of spacious properties ideal for families. Choose self-catered accommodation and make meals for your family in the privacy of your own home from home and, afterwards, spend some quality time together in your private living room.
St Martin de Belleville has something for everyone, and so it is the ideal location to bring your family for a unique, fun and snowy holiday this year.
