La Norma Overview

Established in 1971, La Norma's has a reputation for reasonable prices and great views over the Maurienne Valley to the Vanoise National Park. As yet still undiscovered by the bigger tour operators so queues are unlikely apart from school holidays when teams of young future champions are in training. The lack of cars in the heart of the village creates a relaxed pedestrian shopping area where street entertainers add a lively atmosphere.

Close to the world famous Trois Vallées (Three Valleys Region) and Val Thorens, Europe's highest resort. There were plans back in the 1970's to lift link Valfréjus with Valmeinier, Valloire and Bardonecchia just over through the Fréjus Tunnel in Italy. The River Arc, so called because of its arc shape, runs through the valley providing summer visitors with a venue for many of La Norma's summer activities. The Maurienne Ski Pass allows you one day's skiing in a choice of 23 nearby resorts of the Maurienne Valley and with a ski pass of two days or more you can get away to the Trois Vallées, Vallee des Belleville or Val Thorens.
