Chalet Hélène is a 4 minute drive from the centre of the charming mountain hamlet of St Martin de Belleville situated on the eastern side of the world famous 3 Valleys ski domain. The chalet’s on call driver service (available until 22h00) will take you in 4 minutes to an 8 man gondola which whips you up to Tougnet from where you can start your day’s skiing towards Courchevel, Meribel, Val Thorens or Les Menuires – with 600 kms of pistes and arguably some of the best skiing to be had in the world. St Martin de Belleville is at the same altitude as Meribel village and offers good snow throughout the season.
The Chalet is beautifully run along the lines of a boutique hotel with a professional chef, host and driver, and the lovely Helen, owner and chalet manager, who has an innate understanding of guest’s needs. Food is high on the agenda with a professional chef serving a 5 course dinner, 6 days a week, house wines are carefully chosen and complimentary and an a la carte wine list is available for those wishing to make their own choice. Meal times are flexible and an early children’s supper can be arranged. For the ‘evening out’, St Martin de Belleville has several good restaurants including the two Michelin starred La Bouitte.
In-house massage can be arranged and the chalet has access to the Bela Vya spa belonging to La Bouitte where there is a well being centre, Jacuzzi, sauna, treatments and massage. There is a free car service for the spa.
The chalet is genuinely child-friendly and has all the kit required for children both young and old. English speaking babysitters are available (at additional cost) and the resort boasts a children’s crèche for 30 month to 6 year olds. There is an English-speaking ski school stationed at the bottom of the ski lifts with transport to and from the chalet by the on-call driver.
Chalet Hélène has a sister chalet (sleeping12/13) only 4 mins' drive away and both chalets can be rented for several families wishing to holiday together.
