5 bedroom spacious detached chalet style house in a peaceful setting just 15 minutes from the world famous Paradiski area with over 425km of skiing.

The house has been tastefully modernized and occupies an enviable position in the heart of the quite village of Bellentre, in the Tarentaise valley.

It is an extremely spacious south-facing family property set over three floors with a good-sized garden, private parking and stunning views across the valley towards La Plagne and Les Arcs.

Ground Floor

The ground floor of the house comprises of an entrance hall; ski locker; garage; cave; office; bedroom; utility room and separate toilet.

Arriving at the house you come into a large light entrance with built in cupboards for storage

The large integral garage has plenty of built in storage, lighting, electric and houses the energy saving heat pump water heater. A door at the back of the garage leads into the wine cave.

The utility room has space for 2 appliances and shelving for storage

Also on the ground floor are two rooms which are currently laid out as a double bedroom and an office. However, the layout is such that it would be possible to change into a small self-contained granny-annex if you chose to do so.

First Floor

The first floor is the real heart of the home. It comprises a living-dining room; a fully equipped kitchen; a pantry; master bedroom; master bathroom and a separate toilet.

The dual aspect open-plan living dining room is a bright, light room decorated in neutral colours and with a practical tiled floor. Patio doors lead onto a balcony spanning two sides of the house giving you additional outdoor living space in the summer months and stunning views across La Plagne and Les Arcs. A stylish wood burning stove offers a cozy ambiance in the colder winter evenings.

Decorated in a traditional Savoyard style the large separate kitchen has a built-in fan oven; hob; dishwasher; fridge and plenty of cupboard space. An additional pantry decorated in the same style gives you the option for more storage if required.

The spacious master bedroom has beautiful wooden floors, a window and patio door leading onto the balcony which give this room a light, airy feel. Next to this bedroom the exceptionally large master bathroom has been recently renovated with clean tiled walls and a modern bathroom suite with bath; separate walk-in shower and sink unit. There is also a separate toilet on this level.

Top Floor

The top floor of the house comprises of three spacious double bedrooms, a large family bathroom and an attic storage space.

The first bedroom is a good sized double room with extensive storage space provided by the built-in floor-to-ceiling cupboards. It is decorated in a neutral colour and has beautiful wooden flooring and a balcony door leading out onto a small balcony shared with another bedroom.

The second bedroom is an extremely large double room, also with beautiful wooden flooring. It is currently being used as a children’s bedroom, but you could equally consider using it as a master bedroom if you prefer.

The third bedroom on the top floor is also a comfortable double room. Recently renovated it has white painted walls and ceiling allowing you to see the original wooden ceiling beams.

Also located on the top floor of the house is a large family bathroom with a shower, toilet, hand basin and bathroom unit; as well as an attic for storage.


The house is set on a quiet plot of around 760 m2 accessed by a private driveway in the heart of Bellentre village. It is just a stone’s throw from the center of the village whilst still being well away from the main roads.

Driving in through the front gate you find yourself on a paved area with parking for four or five cars. The house itself is an attractive standalone building across three floors with crepe cream walls offset by decorative stone cladding and attractive wooden balconies.

On the right-hand side of the house is a good-sized lawn and on the left-hand side an established vegetable plot and wood store. Behind the house a further patio area leads down to established soft fruit plots – strawberries, raspberries and blackcurrants.

Bellentre itself is a small, friendly welcoming village. It has a mairie, library, primary school, playground and outdoor picnic/bbq area. Several well-known walking routes pass through the village and school buses collect and drop off from here

In the winter the closest access point for skiing the Paradiski area is nearby Montchavin which is just 15 minutes away, right in the heart of the ski area. You can also drive to Bourg St Maurice in 10 minutes and then take the funiculaire to Les Arcs, or alternatively a 20-minute drive takes you to Plagne Centre.

Tignes, Val D’Isere, La Rosiere, St Foy and the 3 valleys are all easily accessible from Bellentre in under 45mins.

Whilst the winter season here is world famous the summer is equally beautiful and very popular. Bourg St Maurice and Aime both have extensive summer tourism programs; as do all the ski resorts. Just a 5-minute drive from Bellentre is a pleasure lake with zorbing, trampolines, kayaks, sups, beach, playground and café all available during the summer. And of course, a wealth of walking, running and biking trails run across the mountains.

For those looking to purchase the house for a holiday investment travel to and from Bellentre couldn’t be easier. Landry train station on the main line into and out of the valley is just a 5-minute drive from the house and has direct trains to/from London seasonally. Chambery airport is 90 minutes away and Geneva, Grenoble and Lyon are all less than two and a half hours drive.
