Les Orres

In the summer, Les Orres serves up variety, sun, and a change of scene. In the winter, you’ll be smitten with this ski resort’s exceptional natural surroundings.


Enjoy a sunny holiday in the mountains of the Midi of France. You could imagine yourself in Canada, canoeing down the wild creeks of the Lac de Serre-Ponçon. Alternate between the beach, the banks of Europe’s biggest artificial lake, the shepherds’ huts, or around a barbecue. Here, you can live the dream at anti-austerity prices!

In a marvelous landscape dominated by larches and Swiss pines, les Orres offers you active or relaxing holidays–and a breathtaking view over the Lac de Serre-Ponçon and the town of Embrun. This resort in the Hautes-Alpes blends conviviality and the chance to explore nature with its many activities designed for young and old. Your choice of accommodation ranges from traditional to modern. Les Orres will enchant cyclists with its proximity to the finest Alpine passes – Col d’Isoard, Col Agnel, Col de Vars, Col de Restefond – and also offers mountain biking, at a superior Bike Park and signposted routes for freeriders. Discover all the secrets of the mountain heritage on hikes to the 3000-metre summits and family walks.

Discover les Orres


Admire the panorama of the Parc National des Écrins on one side and the Parpaillon massif on the other from the ski area which stretches beyond the Lac de Serre-Ponçon. Enjoy the sun of the Southern Alps as you navigate the slopes, bordered with forests of larch. The northwest exposure maintains a remarkable quality of snow, and, coupled with the southern climate, makes this ski resort the ideal place for fresh and refreshing holidays!
