St Martin de Belleville in the French Alps
Plans have been announced for a small development of just 19 ski apartments for outright sale in St Martin de Belleville in the French Alps.
The region’s leading developer, MGM French Properties, has earmarked for its scheme, Le Chalet Adele, a site 20m from the slopes. When they are completed in December 2012, the ski-in/ski-out apartments will occupy what Richard Deans in the firm’s London sales office describes it as “a perfect location for skiers in winter and walkers in summer.”
Located at an altitude of 1,400m, St Martin de Belleville is a typical Alpine village. Centred around its village square and C16th church, it has retained the charm of an earlier age.
Situated in the Belleville Valley below Les Menuires, the village is a good centre for access to all of the 600kms of pistes Three Valleys area. A gondola and fast quad (chairlift for four people) link the village with the slopes at Meribel and Les Menuires.
Surrounded by beautiful countryside, the small village of St Martin de Belleville has a good variety of restaurants.
The nearest airports are at Chambery, just over an hour away by car, and Lyon which is a two-hour drive.
Prices of the apartments available at Le Chalet Adele have not yet been finalised but MGM is quoting guideline figures of around €366,000 for a one-bedroom apartment with a floor area of 40sqm, €500,000 for a two-bedroom apartment of around 55sqm and €560,000 for a three-bedroom property of about 68sqm.
