Description

Vallorcine is the "hidden gem" of the Chamonix area. Unlike Chamonix, it is not a substantial tourist town. It is a mountain village in its own valley where the cow bells can still be heard in the summer. However, it benefits from a modern high-speed ski lift into the Le Tour/La Balme ski area which also runs in the summer for the benefit of walkers and mountain bikers. That lift is less than 5 minutes' walk from Maison du Torrent (even in ski boots!).

Vallorcine is a year-round destination. Chamonix is well known for its skiing, but it is also a stunning place in the summer for walking, climbing, swimming, mountain biking and so on.

Vallorcine is also within easy reach of the other Chamonix ski areas on the regular, efficient and picturesque train service, which stops at Argentiere, Les Praz and Chamonix itself for the Grands Montets, Flegere and Brevent respectively - along with the bright lights of Chamonix itself. For those with young families,

For those with young families, the Vallorcine valley also contains beginners skiing behind the Hotel du Buet in the Poya ski area.

There are a number of great places to eat in the Vallorcine valley including Le Cafe Comptoir, la Ferme des Trois Ours, the Hotel Le Buet, the Gite Bellevue and the Arret Bougnete. There is also a super village shop 200 metres from the house from which you can buy your freshly baked croissants every day.

Further details

Chamonix and Vallorcine are brilliant destinations for long weekends. Do contact us if you are interested in a long weekend.

Further details indoors

The Maison Le Torrent is more of a stone village house than a classic wooden chalet. It has a playroom (with lots of toys and games, a baby-foot table and English TV), downstairs loo and ski-room on the ground floor, an open-plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room with a very cosy wood burning stove on the first floor, two double/twin bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room on the second floor, and a further two double bedrooms, a bathroom and a children's room (which currently contains one single bed and one child's bed) on the top floor. So to say that it can accommodate 9-10 comfortably is about right. We also have wifi for those who can't tear themselves away from work.

Further details outdoors

We have two parking spaces across the road from the house and an informal garden which is great for building snowmen in during the winter and having barbecues and a paddling pool in during the summer

Location description from owner

The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region

The house is (we think) very well located, being:
less than 5 minutes walk from the lifts at Vallorcine (which links in to the Le Tour ski area);
15 minutes drive or train ride to Argentiere (the famous, challenging Chamonix ski area);
20 minutes train/drive from the Flegere/Brevent ski area
45 minutes drive to Verbier in Switzerland
45 minutes drive to Courmayeur in Italy
