Set at the foot of the gondola from the fourth valley (there's no piste down), Orelle isn't a recognizable resort, but offers bargain prices. A couple of hairpins up the hill from the lift base (there's a frequent ski-bus) is Hameau des Eaux, a complex of 200 apartments in eight chalet-style buildings, sharing a spa with a decent pool - available through Peak Retreats and Zenith. It includes a small convenience store and a restaurant.
