The Alpine Club is a collection of luxury chalets nestled in the charming Savoyard resort of St Martin de Belleville, in the heart of the 3 Valleys. Each offers attentive service, casual elegance and exceptional food and wine, tucked away in an authentic mountain village that is the perfect destination for a truly special ski holiday. The Ecurie, nominated 'Best New Ski Chalet' in the 2016 World Ski Awards is a 130-year-old former stable that has been lovingly converted into a luxurious mountain retreat. The original rustic features of ancient beams and timbers have all been tastefully complimented with warm, cosy fabrics and antique furniture, inspired by the mountains and the local history. The open plan living and dining room is a stunning double-height space spread out over the top...The Alpine Club is a collection of luxury chalets nestled in the charming Savoyard resort of St Martin de Belleville, in the heart of the 3 Valleys.

About the neighborhood
Open the door at The Ecurie and the only sound you will hear is the falling of fresh snow. A place to get way from it all, The Ecurie snuggles itself in the heart of the hameaua of Villarabout, an ancient Savoie farming village, yet just steps away from St Martin de Belleville, in the heart of the 3 valleys. If you want to feel cocooned in a cashmere blanket, far away from the madding crowd, yet with your own personal chef, housekeeper & chauffeur taking care of you, this is the place to be.
