Exciting Announcement!

The Alpine Club, has been part of the St Martin de Belleville landscape for the past 15 years
offering luxurious boutique mountain chalets – but it is now time for a change.

For the past two winters, the three Alpine Club chalets have been running alongside
the six chalets of White Mountain chalets. From the coming winter, all chalets will be wearing the White Mountain Chalets brand.

White Mountain Chalets

We’ve added some great little extras to our offering in the last 2 years with prosecco and spirits now included in the open bar and an evening turn down service.

The feedback this year was fantastic, with lots of returning guests and a great chalet team:

“What a fantastic holiday we have just enjoyed in St Martin de Belleville! Our 6th time with The Alpine Club and the best yet. Amazing attention to detail and excellent service from the staff. A holiday to remember and we can’t wait to return”

You will get the same amazing service and quality that you have come to expect from the Alpine Club, just under a new name.

"We know you love The Ecurie, Abode and Chamois Lodge as much as we do. We're very excited about continuing the service you enjoy and look forward to welcoming you all this season."

Luxury Ski Chalets

The Alpine Club is a private collection of luxury, catered chalets, nestled in the 3 valleys most beautiful village resort, of St Martin de Belleville.

Each offers attentive service and exceptional food & wine, managed by a team of professionals; which includes a manager, fine dining chef, host & chauffeur.

Tucked away in an authentic mountain village this is the perfect destination for a truly special ski holiday.

The Alpine Club’s story began in 2004, when we started providing luxury winter holidays in St Martin de Belleville. We now own three of the most beautiful chalets in resort, which we have restored or built ourselves.

We have kept the business small and privately owned so that we can be genuinely hands-on.
