“Great place to stay”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

We would highly recommend the Vallorcine Residence and Spa. The apartment was great value and it was clean and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped. The view was marvelous. The town is very quiet, it was wonderful to able to open our window and hear the stream flowing nearby. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The reception closes at 20.00 hr, but the staff cheerfully accommodated our late arrival, so that was not a problem.

We would highly recommend Residence Vallorcine and definitely hope to return next year (or maybe sooner!) The two-bedroom apartment we stayed in was clean, warm, comfortably furnished and really charming. It had a living/dining area, kitchen and very large terrace. The hospitality in the Residence was very welcoming - we arrived very late at night to find that a delicious dinner of charcuterie and cheese had been left in our apartment (prepared by the cafe downstairs). We made the most of the great self-catering facilities in our apartment, which were were top-notch, and on other nights, we sampled Savoyarde delicacies at the fantastic local restaurant - the Three Bears (Trois Ours).
Vallorcine is an ideal skiing spot for intermediate level skiers - plenty of fun and challenging blue and red runs, and if you're staying at the Residence, you're only a two minute walk away from the telecabine. It really couldn't be better positioned, and incredibly it is uncrowded. Get there before everyone else finds out!

This was my second visit in two months, the first being with a friend. We liked it so much that we decided to come back with friends / family.
The residence is in an idyllic setting with a ski lift (tele-cabine) opposite the hotel. The staff are very friendly and all speak English to varying degrees. Nothing was too much trouble and being a small village, everyone in the area seemed to know one another.
The hotel benefits from having a ski hire shop located within it (book online in advance and search for some discount codes) with good new equipment for sale and hire. Next to the ski lift is another hire shop as well as ESF (the ski school).
The rooms/apartments are very spacious and well equipped for France with all the mod-cons I would expect.
There is a very good restaurant called the 3 bears which is close by and not too pricey and a similar type of residence next to the ski lift that will sell you pizzas to take away as an alternative. Argentiere is about 15 minutes away by car for groceries / more restaurants bars etc. and Chamonix another 10 minutes after that.
The only negative that I have is that there are no facilities (out of high season at least) for young kids and inexperienced skiers. This is because the lift (tele-cabine) takes you to the top of the mountain and the runs are definitely unsuitable for beginners - in my opinion at least! You have to travel 5 minutes by car to a place called Poya which has a couple of slopes but gets boring very quickly. Otherwise you have to drive further to Tours or Argentiere and this gets quite busy and quite a pain when you have to lug childrens skis and boots and poles as well as your own!
In terms of Apres ski and nightlife, not much here but I didnt miss it because Argentiere and Chamonix are not far away, 3 Bears is very good and we do a lot of that in London anyway!

Everithing was just perfect! Vallorcine is a small, quiet and beautifull village, and has a great view to mountains, and the hotel is a great place.
