If you are looking for a ski or snowboarding break in a quiet, inexpensive and attractive resort St Martin is pretty much unbeatable. The lived-in and unspoiled qualities of the village are what attract many visitors and the picturesque 16th century church, flood-lit at night to appealing effect, is a notable focal point of the village.
Small but Perfect for a Short Ski or Snowboarding Break in France
Following St Martin's emergence as a prime location for a short ski break in France, the old village has been developed with agreeable new buildings. The location remains small and you can wander around the village in a matter of minutes to view the church or visit one of the local shops.
