Overview

In 1 hour from Chambery and 2 hours from the international airport of Lyon, Orelle is a small mountain village of almost 400 inhabitants in the Maurienne's valley and it preserves its rural character and its traditions and architecture with stone-built houses surmounted by solids frames of larch covered with slate roof at the bluish-grey reflections. In winter, 15 minutes of gondola are enough to join the skiing area of Val Thorens and of The 3 Valleys, the highest of Europe. In summer, the hikes and the trekkings beat the time to your days and at the same time you will discover wild and splendid landscapes. Holidays in the Alps, at a natural size.
