This modern apartment, situated in the beautiful hamlet of Orelle in the Maurienne Valley (“le Plus Grand Domaine Cyclable du Monde”), is just two hours from Geneva by car. Many of the classic cols featuring regularly in the Tour de France are within easy reach – the start of the stunning Telegraphe / Galibier is only 6km away. It can sleep upto 4 – double bedroom, double sofa bed in the living area, kitchen, bathroom, toilet and large south facing balcony – and there's a swimming pool, shop, laundry and free wifi on site. For larger groups, additional apartments sleeping 2-6 people can be arranged. The Hameau des Eaux d’Orelle is only a few kilometres from the A43 motorway, linking Chambery to northern Italy, but the local area is really peaceful, thanks to the tunnels, which allow the motorway and the trains to bypass the village completely.
