There are many different ways to travel to St Martin de Belleville.
You may choose to travel by air and have the flexibility to depart from your local airport and choose flight times to suit you. A private transfer can be booked to meet you from the airport and bring you directly to the chalet without having to wait for other passengers.
Car hire and shared shuttle transfers are also great options for getting from the airport to the chalet and may work out cheaper, especially for singles, couples and smaller groups.
And how about driving yourself? Pack everything in the car and travel at your convenience. This offers you the advantage of having your car in resort in case you would like to drive up to Val Thorens or down the valley to Moutiers.
Whichever suits you the best we are here to help and offer advice!
