Maison du Torrent, Vallorcine

  • Property description

    Rental Home – 
    5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    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. See this link for more info: http://www.vallorcine.com/en/ 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 r...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    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.

    How to get there
    In terms of getting there, the closest airports are Geneva and Milan. We usually fly easyjet, BA or Swiss from London to Geneva. Once at Geneva, either rent a car or get a transfer with one of the many shuttle services (Alpybus, Chamvan, Mountain Drop-offs are our favourites), which in peak season will cost you around 25 euros per person one way. The journey takes about 1.5 hours, which makes it a fantastic destination for weekends.

Maison du Torrent is a beautifully renovated, spacious old French house in a quiet, traditional village yet close to everything you might need on a ski holiday. I spent a few days there with friends and it was very warm and comfortable. We could use the train across the road to travel back to Chamonix or Grand Montets and also... more

Maison du Torrent was really a home away from home. The chalet was very comfortable and clean and included features like underfloor heating on the ground floor, which was much appreciated after a long day skiing. The downstairs drying room was useful so you could leave all your wet gear before heading upstairs to the main living room/kitchen. The kitchen/living... more

This is a fantastic property within the quiet village if Vallorcine. The Villa has a great layout particularly for a reasonably large group of skiing enthusiasts as me and my family are. At the entrance to the villa there is a comfortable room with underfloor heating to sooth the cold aching ski feet! There is also a larger utility room... more
