Each apartment is self contained and offers external balconies and stone fireplaces. The apartments are equipped with fitted kitchens, WIFI, TV & DVD facilities with UK satellite channels, ipod docking stations and are in the centre of the village, tucked neatly behind the church, opposite the tourist information centre and within walking distance of all local amenities, shops and restaurants, most within a minute or two's walk.

The skiing is fantastic, and the piste comes right down into the centre of Saint Martin until the very end of the season.
About the Owner
About Lucy Chittenden
We are a group of seven friends and family from the UK who purchased P Bar and Chalet Alice Velut in the autumn of 2011. Six of us live and work in London whilst one of us, Lucy, moved to Saint Martin from Australia to run the business. Lucy, a pastry chef by trade, had already done ski seasons, and had always wanted to return to the mountains. Saint Martin de Belleville, Chalet Alice Velut and P Bar are now very much her home and she looks forward to sharing it with as many guests as possible.

Why Lucy Chittenden chose The Three Valleys
The property was purchased by a group of us. We loved the ski area, the Savoyard village and the location of Chalet Alice Velut, 50 metres from the teleski. The village is charming, and 3 out of 4 of us couples own private chalets here in St Martin also. I, Lucy, live here all year round with my husband and family. We are very settled and have no intention of going anywhere.
