The Guardian newspaper has discovered Orelle! In a recent article entitled “Great little ski resorts you may never have heard of” the journalist writes, “This charming little resort in the Maurienne valley is made up of 10 hamlets of slate-roofed stone houses, and has some of the area’s best-value accommodation. The skiing is linked by lift over the Col de Rosael to Val Thorens, so you can enjoy the slopes of the Trois Vallées at a fraction of the price of staying there – and enjoy the off-piste opportunities around the quieter Maurienne area, too.” Ron and Anne
