Chalet Astragle has been renovated to a very high standard this summer!
The layout has stayed the same with a large open-plan kitchen, living and dining area on the ground floor. The kitchen will be extended and more open plan with brand new appliances.
All in all the standard of this apartment is very luxurious!
The chalet apartment ‘Astragle’ is one of three apartments situated in the traditional Chalet Fruitière. It has a ground floor entrance and spreads out over two floors.
Astragle is the largest chalet apartment in Chalet Fruitiere with around 125m2 living space. It offers a spacious open-plan living area with a beautiful log fire, large dining table, comfortable sofas and a well-equipped kitchen. The large sun terrace makes an ideal place to enjoy a sunset drink and take in the mountain views. This ski apartment sleeps ten very comfortably and actually has two pull out beds if need be offering space for up to 12 people in total. There are two double and three twin bedrooms all of which have their own bathroom.
To add to your holiday the chalet also boasts a boot heater for 10 pairs of ski /snowboard boots, ski lockers just outside the apartment door and a private underground garage.
This fantastic ski-in ski-out location offers you a lot of flexibility during your ski holiday!
The main gondola is situated on your doorstep within less than 40 meters distance from Chalet Fruitière’s front door. Furthermore the ski pass office, rental shops, ski school meeting points, the beginner slopes, a couple of day-time restaurants and bars as well as a small supermarket are all located within a 100 meter radius – You couldn’t ask for more!
The village centre can easily be reached on foot in less than 10 minutes. It’s a nice stroll through the village. There you can find most night-time restaurants and bars, a larger supermarket, the tourist office, further shops and a fantastic bakery for fresh croissants in the morning.
Usual arrival day: Sunday

Be rest assured when staying with 'SC-Saint Martin'
Here at 'SC-Saint Martin' we completely understand everyone's worries in relation to Covid. May it be about the virus still being around or returning during the winter season, or most importantly the potential concern for you and your family's health, which at the end of the day is our highest priority!
There will be necessary measures in place in resort this winter to keep everybody safe, such as wearing masks in ski lift queues and on the lifts. Of course, we cannot influence everything Covid-dependent, but what we can do is reassure you that we will be making your safety, health and comfort as our number one priority.
Please also read below for information on a new insurance Product Launch from SKI COVER.
The situation as of the 1st December 2021...
As the current situation changes constantly we cannot promise that the information provided below is completely up-to-date and accurate. We urge you to contact your airline before traveling as well as check the government pages to ensure you have all documents required to enter the country.
TRAVELLING TO FRANCE:
It was announced on the 1st December that all travellers from outside of the EU, even those who are fully vaccinated, will now need a negative PCR test to enter France as well as to show proof of their vaccination. This applies from Saturday 4th of December.
- For fully vaccinated people the test has to be taken within 48 hours, otherwise the test has to be taken within 24 hours of arrival in France.
Please note that the UK government-advised 1 dose for teenagers is not considered as a full vaccination in France.
Every passenger travelling from the UK to France will need to complete a sworn declaration testifying that they have no COVID symptoms and have not been in contact with a confirmed case in the past 14 days.
Please consult the French government website page for more information.
TRAVELLING TO FRANCE VIA SWITZERLAND (Geneva Airport):
Whilst scientists work towards understanding the transmission of the new Omicron variant, the government has now decided to take stricter measures regarding COVID-19. It is hoped that once more is known about this variant, the situation may change more in our favour.
From 8pm on 26/11/21, the Swiss authorities have tightened entry rules to the country. The Swiss government website states that if arriving from a country on the list of countries with a variant of concern (UK included) then...
- You must present a negative result from a PCR or antigen test on arrival in Switzerland if you are over 16 (even if you are vaccinated or recovered).
- Everyone must complete an entry form (including children) and quarantine for 10 days.
- You must report to the cantonal authority immediately, and have a PCR or rapid antigen test between day 4 and 7 after entry and inform the cantonal authority of the result.
However, when filling out the Swiss government Travel Check questionnaire to establish restrictions applying to vaccinated UK travellers arriving in Switzerland to immediately transit to France, it states they are exempt from testing and simply need to fill out an entry form with no mention of quarantine.
However the UK government's Foreign Travel Advice page for Switzerland states that you will need a test to enter the country and has recently updated its advice to say that transit to another country is allowed as long as travel through Switzerland is less than 24 hours and does not include a stopover. It is not 100% clear whether the test requirement applies to UK travellers who are just transiting Switzerland. It is best to check all up to date websites and be clear on the rules yourself before you travel.
It also states that non vaccinated travellers are not eligible to enter Switzerland unless they meet certain exemptions detailed on the web page.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
In summary, the information on entry requirements to Switzerland if you are transiting through to France vary from source to source and it seems very difficult at this time to find a clear answer. From experience, we have gathered that the best thing you can do is to check with your specific airline before you fly. We strongly urge you to do this before making your way to the airport.
OTHER CHANGES IN FRANCE:
In France, over 65's will be required to have a booster jab from the 15th December if it has been 7 months since their second jab. This rule will also apply to all over 18's as of the 15th January. Unfortunately, for the moment the NHS app provides no way to upload the booster jab certificate and so cannot be transferred to the French vaccine pass. There is a feeling that perhaps the vaccine pass along with a booster jab certificate will suffice, but this remains to be seen.
RETURNING TO THE UK:
When returning to the UK, you will need to fill out a passenger locator form, and take a PCR test. You will need to self-isolate until you receive a negative result.
THE PASS SANITAIRE (FRENCH COVID PASS):
As the number of cases has hit the pre-determined mark of 200/100,000 people, the pass sanitaire will now be required for all over 12's to use the 3 Valleys ski lifts from the 4th December. Systematic checks will be carried out at lift pass offices, and randomly throughout the ski area.
Masks are compulsory in lift queues and on gondolas/cable cars, but can be removed once on open chairlifts. They are not required whilst skiing or in other open, outdoor spaces. Social distancing is also obligatory and enforced in the lift queues.
You will need to present a pass sanitaire to eat/drink in restaurants (both outdoors and inside), and to enter other public spaces. Those who are fully vaccinated can download the 'Tous Anti Covid' app (available on the App Store and Google Play Store) and import their NHS certificate to show their vaccination status. Booster jab certificates from the NHS app should now also be importable. Simply go to 'Open my Wallet' on the French app, then 'Add my certificate' and scan your NHS QR code. More information can be found on the French government website.
CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 12
Please be aware that children over the age of 12 years and 2 months do require a pass sanitaire for these venues as well. Unfortunately, the recommended single dose of the Pfizer vaccine for children over 12 in the UK is not recognised as fully vaccinated in France (but the single Johnson & Johnson vaccine is).
So, as of the 1st of October 2021, these children with just a single Pfizer vaccine can obtain a pass sanitaire by presenting a negative PCR or lateral flow test, or evidence that they have had COVID within the past 6 months. Pharmacy testing centres will then generate a QR code which is valid for 24 hours. It is recognised that this presents difficulties, and the authorities are planning to open in-resort 'testing stations'- which includes the Health Centre in Les Menuires, understood to be open every day of the week.
We will monitor the situation very closely and keep you updated as often as we can to make understanding and following the rules as simple as possible for our guests.
'SC-Saint Martin' - Safety measures
- MEET AND GREET
We will give you the option between our personal 'Meet & Greet' service or a 'Contact-less' check-in.
All our chalets are equipped with lock-boxes meaning you are able to let yourself into the accommodation without having to meet us in person.
Nevertheless we are available 24/7 if any questions or issues arise!
When meeting any of our guests, we will wear masks and respect all social distancing measures.
Extra precautions in relation to cleaning and disinfection methods will be put in place to ensure your safety.
Additional disinfecting hand-wash and spray will be provided in all of our chalets/apartments.
Covid resort measures
To be ready for every possibility, the ski resort of Saint-Martin-de-Belleville has put in place a series of measures so that your holiday at the mountain is solely one of happiness and is an opportunity for you to recharge your batteries and have fun with your friends and family.
All measures are explained on the very helpful image by 'France Montagnes' below. These measures are going to be in place in all ski resorts in France.
These measures may be updated for the 21/22 winter season.
The practice of snow sliding sports is an outdoor practice, where the equipment (gloves, skis, ski poles...) favours social distancing measures.
