    1 of 1 - St Martin Hiking

3 Valleys

The surrounding area has a particularly rich natural and architectural heritage. The summer months see a series of festivities  that haven’t changed for decades where simple pursuits such as bread baking in the village oven and trout fishing competitions are celebrated. The Belleville valley is a major stopover on the Chemins du Baroque cultural itinerary. The two most important churches are the 17th century Notre Dame de la Vie sanctuary, an important place of pilgrimage, and the lovely parish church in Saint Martin. In the summer months, classical, Baroque and gospel concerts are held there. Bellevilloise delicacies include country ham cooked in white wine, served with polenta, and special sausages called ‘Pormonniers’. Then there are the crisp Savoyard wines, the aromatic mountain honey and the spiced gingerbread to sample too. Book a cookery course with well-known local chef René Meilleur who runs the acclaimed La Bouitte restaurant in St-Martin itself.
