Designed in the 1960s as a pedestrian resort, Les Orres boasts environmental protection as part of its DNA. Since its creation, the resort is characterized by its constant quest for solutions to reconcile development, client satisfaction and respect for the environment.. For example:
20% savings in electricity consumption
Specific sensors enable the resort to record the energy costs of local amenities such as lifts, artificial snow production and recreational facilities, in the aim to improve the management of energy consumption. In December 2016, Les Orres was awarded the "Sustainable Summits" trophy, the only resort in the entire PACA region to receive a reward.
Head in the stars!
The Haute-Alpes region is renowned for its dry, sunny climate and limited light pollution. The responsible management of public lighting since 2009 has made the resort a privileged observation spot, labelled "Starry Village" in 2014.
A breath of fresh air!
