About the property

Direct link to 3 Valleys, France - Quiet location for families and experienced skiers - from 200 Euros pw

Ski in the 3 Valleys, open from December to May, but stay at a fraction of the cost and away from the crowds. Located within the Maurienne Valley region of the French Alps, Orelle is connected via an Express Gondola to Val Thorens and the extensive 3 Valleys ski area. A great location for those seeking calm, peace and the authenticity of an alpine village with stone houses, beautiful slate roofs and lots of traditional charm. These well furnished apartments, sleeping up to 10 are half a mile from the Gondola where there is a bar and restaurant. The apartment block has a spa (for which there is an extra charge), and a mini-market. There is a further selection of shops, bars and restaurants in St Michel de Maurienne or Modane, both a 10 minute drive away. For more information please ask to visit our website.

About Sharon Love

My young son and I love the variety of skiing from this lovely alpine village. I am based in the Midlands of UK and we chose this location because it is easy to reach, has great skiing, is a lovely village AND is cheaper than Val Thorens/3 Vallees area.

Why Sharon Love chose Orelle

average rating of 3.0 based on 1 reviews

Appartement bien décoré et fonctionnel mais de nombreux détails à revoir

  • 3 of 5

L'appartement est joliment décoré, mais de nombreux détails ont un peu gâché le séjour :

- Faux nom de la personne à contacter en arrivant, 45 minutes d'attente pour avoir les clefs

- Porte des toilettes qui ne ferme pas

- une télévision sans chaîne de télévision = écran noir !

- mauvaise literie pour les lits des enfants

- problème de robinet : l'eau ne coulait qu'à moitié dans la douchette

Les 4 feus de la plaque de cuisson sont très pratiques ainsi que la taille du réfrigérateur.

Le chauffage de la salle de bain est très efficace pour sécher les affaires de ski mouillées. Canapé confortable. Piscine de belle taille et vestiaires correcte.

Vu que le tarif était très bas pour la saison, nous restons satisfaits de notre séjour mais espérons que les petits désagréments pourront être résolus pour les prochains locataires.
