Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8

Les Sorbiers is a large detached chalet located at the edge of the ski resort of La Norma, just a stones throw from the ski slopes. Built in 1990 in a traditional style using local materials, the property is quietly located in a wooded area at the end of a cul de sac. The spacious chalet offers all mod cons, including wireless internet, underfloor heating, own log fire, large terrace, wine cellar, sauna and garden gite and enjoys marvellous panoramic views down the Maurienne valley and across to the ski slopes, which are just a 2 minute walk away.

Accommodation comprises 2 double bedrooms and 2 twin rooms, organised on the top and the ground floor.

The kitchen, living room and TV area are arranged on the first floor. The chalet has 1800 square feet internal space and benefits from a large private garden.

Established in 1971, La Norma's has a reputation for reasonable prices and great views over the Maurienne Valley to the Vanoise National Park. As yet still undiscovered by the bigger tour operators so queues are rare. The lack of cars in the heart of the village creates a relaxed pedestrian shopping area where street entertainers add a lively atmosphere.

Dominated by its peak 2917m, La Norma offers 700 hectares of ski slopes, stretching from an altitude of 1350m to 2750m. There are 65km of runs with 18 different ski lifts - a cable car, six chairlifts, 10 button lifts and a toddler lift). The ski area starts at 1350m up to 2750m. The Maurienne Ski Pass allows you one day's skiing in a choice of 23 nearby resorts of the Maurienne Valley and with a ski pass of two days or more you can get away to the Trois Vallées, Vallee des Belleville or Val Thorens.

The resort has its own Sports Club which owns an FIS authorised permanent slalom stadium on La Fontaine aux Oiseaux and has hosted major competitions including the French Military Championships and the French Surf Alpine Trophy.

La Norma is also close to the world famous Trois Vallées (Three Valleys Region) and Val Thorens, Europe's highest resort, linking into Val Thorens via the Orelle cable car.

The River Arc, so called because of its arc shape, runs through the valley providing summer visitors with a venue for many of La Norma's summer activities. The resort has its own swimming and fishing lake and many forested trails
