Overview: chalet description: Chalet Orion description

Chalet Orion is our smallest chalet in Val Thorens and indeed the whole of the Belleville valley. Val Thorens chalets are rarely stand-alone, and even less so are they are ski-in, ski-out. If it’s a good location you’re after, our Val Thorens Chalets; Pégase, Véga and Orion are all housed in Chalet Alrock, situated on piste, next to the brand new Sports Centre, just below the central Place du Caron. Each is run and catered separately but share the bonus of the sauna on the ground floor.

The chalet gives you direct access to the piste so you just need to clip in, and off you go, either down to the bottom of the magic carpets (for beginners) or down to Les Menuires or to the various chairlifts and gondolas that open up access to all of the Three Valleys and the glacier

Orion is on just one floor, the lower ground floor of Chalet Alrock. The three bedrooms are situated in a corridor off the lounge, each with their own shower room and wc.

2300m at the top of the Three Valleys ski area, VT is the highest ski resort in Europe and part of the biggest linked ski area on the planet.

With a bit more confidence, take the Pionniers or Plein Sud chairs for some cruisy lon...

Another place to party is Bar 360 at the end of the blue Moraine run, which always has live music and cheaper drinks. Back in town, Rue de Gebroulaz is a hub of lively bars where O'Connells is the local Irish pub. The Frog and Roastbeef is a long-time favourite of Brits. L'Eclipse on Galerie Caro...
