A warm welcome awaits you at The Stone Shed in the lovely commune of Saint Martin de Belleville.
We know how it feels to be cooped up in a tiny, box-like ski apartment… and we didn’t like it much! So, we’ve restored this 17th century village house, along with the adjoining stone cow shed, to create a warm, inviting home-away-from-home.
Nestled in the heart of the world's largest ski domaine, The Stone Shed is ideally located for you to enjoy stunning alpine surroundings & everything the area has to offer.
There’s a spacious (not just a few cupboards stuck in a corner), full-size kitchen that you can actually cook & eat in! It’s well-equipped with a range cooker, large hob, larder-style fridge/freezer, dishwasher & a must-have Nespresso coffee machine. There’s a dining table that seats all 8 of you (not always the case!), plus room to kick-back & relax in the lounge area.
The 4 bedrooms are well-appointed with either a queen-size bed (2 rooms), two single beds (1 room) or a bunk-bed (1 room); all made-up with crisp white linen. We’ve not crammed extra beds into the bedrooms - and each bedroom has it’s own bathroom. You’ll find cotton robes in your wardrobe, together with hand-made toiletries (by The Natural Soap Company) and Egyptian cotton towels in your en-suite.
Enjoy a vin-chaud on one of the 3 balconies, whilst watching the sun disappear behind the mountains or gazing at the stars.
Outside, there's a small garden, ample private parking and a secure ski locker.
St Martin-de-Belleville is a charming, traditional village that happens to have a ski-lift! It offers picture-postcard scenes, a good choice of amenities and easy access to extensive ski and walking areas.
The commune of St Martin-de-Belleville comprises of a number of surrounding hamlets. The closest of these (and we would argue the prettiest!) is St Marcel – home to The Stone Shed. You’re just a 15 minute stroll to the nearby amenities and gondola in St Martin, or you can hop-on the free ski-bus to Les Menuires or Val Thorens.
From St Martin, a gondola and the new ‘express’ lift whisk you up to Tougnète ridge, where you can explore all the pistes of Les Menuires and Val Thorens. Alternatively, you can drop over the ridge to discover the extensive slopes of the Méribel valley and ride the gondola to Courchevel.
