The Rhone/French Alps region
The 3 Vallees ski area is the largest in the World with more than 600km of skiing. It has something for every level of skier from beginners to families to extensive off-piste for advanced skiers. The Belleville valley alone has 300km of skiing. St Martin de Belleville and St Jean de Belleville and the surrounding villages still retain all the character of traditional French village life and are steeped in history. The area is just as appealing during the summer months as in the winter with plenty to offer for everyone.
Les Trois Vallees
St Jean de Belleville is known locally as the doorway to the Belleville valley and offers the tranquility and beauty of a traditonal mountain village. The village church (St Jean-Baptiste Baroque Church) is one of the churches on the "Sentiers du Baroque" and is the oldest in the valley with a listed altar piece and is open to the general public. There are various walking itineraries starting from the village and maps can be obtained from the Mairies office in the village centre, walking trails are well maintained during the summer season (June - September). Nearby attractions during winter months include downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snow-shoeing, sledging (both Les Menuires and Val Thorens have dedicated sledging runs, Val Thorens boasts the longest dedicated sledging run in Europe at over 6km long), dog-sledding, Leisure and Spa facilities, Cinema's, ten pin bowling, varied bars and restaurants to suit all tastes.
During the summer months there is just as much to do and see, from walking, cycling/mountain biking, fishing (both river and lake), white water rafting, via ferrata, climbing, tree top adventures, summer skiing in Val Thorens, horse riding, golf (situated in Meribel or Courchevel), quad and motorbiking. Plus Les Menuires boasts an impressive children's activity programme, inlcuding archery, bouncy castles & trampolines, donkey rides, arts & craft sessions plus much more.
Why not try the 2 Michelin Star restaurant "La Bouitte" situated in St Marcel or for a truly spectacular setting try the "Le Chateau des Feissons" just past Moutiers (pre-bookings only) both open summer and winter serving spectacular food and wines. Or the L'Oxalys 1 Michelin Star restaurant in Val Thorens - the highest michelin starred restaurant in Europe.
