Overview - apartment description - L'Ecrin des Orres description

When staying in the L’Ecrin apartments, you’ll be right in the centre of things. It’s just a short walk to the resort centre, so it’s easy to pick up ingredients to cook up a feast in your apartment. And with the ski lift only moments away, you’ll have the mountains at your doorstep.
Uniquely for apartments, you'll be on half board during your stay. This makes everything a little easier so you just have to pop down to the Winter Lounge restaurant for breakfast and dinner. In the mornings, you'll have plenty of choice - it's a buffet so you can fill up on French pastries and traditional cold cuts as well as fruit and yoghurt. This’ll get you set for the day ahead before you return home for dinner. Prepare a delicious lunch to go or pop back during the day - you can pick up some fresh ingredients and use the apartment's cooking facilities to whip up a meal to keep everyone going until the lifts shut. Come dinner time, simply head back to the restaurant and prepare for a feast - you'll get to choose from a menu with dessert included.
The apartments are spacious so there’s room for everyone (even the messy ones). You’ll have a private balcony or terrace, which looks out upon the Orres mountains or the valley keeping the mountains even closer to you. And after your time on the slopes, head to the indoor pool for a refreshing dip and warm up in the onsite sauna whilst stretching out your ski legs.

This package holiday to L'Ecrin des Orres in Les Orres, France departs Sunday 20th December 2020, for a 7 night stay on a "half board" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Set in the middle of a forest with spectacular views over the Embrun Valley, Les Orres is split into two different villages which are identified by their altitudes, Less Orres 1650 and Les Orres 1800. The presence of two villages within one resort gives a huge choice in terms of atmosphere, accommodation and facilities, and free transport links between the two lets you explore the shops, restaurants and activities as much or as little as you like. 1800 is a new purpose built village, established in 2008 and h...
The skiing is best for beginners and intermediates, as it offers a huge variety of green, blue and red runs. Children are well provided for by the friendly and super experienced team at Club Piou-Piou in 1650 and La Farandole in 1800. Beginners have a number of gentle greens - the Fountaine on the Bois Mean side runs right through both villages and connects with the green Eidelweiss. Once you’ve conquered these, take the Champs Lacas lift up for some high altitude greens and blues, like the Silene (the views ar...
Whilst Les Orres is great for ‘things to do’ where events and activities are concerned, the après scene is pretty quiet. That said, as is the case for most things in life, if you want a party, you can definitely find it. 1800 is the quieter village of the two, but if you want a good meal, La Bouscatiere specialises in typical Savoyard dishes like tartiflette and raclette - their cheese fondue is a great choice. If cheese isn’t your thing, they also offer up a number of French delicacies, including foie gr...
