This is a really, really good chalet. I’ve never seen a better location! It’s great for families – it’s close to a soft play area, the swimming pool, shops and cafes, etc. There is also a nursery very nearby with an outside play area which would be good for people travelling with young children.

Location - where is Chalet Olivier

The best location in Val Thorens!

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Olivier description

There are only a handful of detached chalets in Val Thorens, and this super property is certainly one of the very best. Divided into two chalets, run and catered separately, but sharing the bonus of the sauna on the ground floor, chalet Catherine and chalet Olivier could not be more central or convenient.

As you can see from our picture, skiing is literally to and from the door, as the chalet is located right on the side of the slopes in the centre of the resort!

In the Olivier, all the bedrooms are on the second floor, and at the very top of the chalet is an open-plan living/dining area with a cosy central fireplace. During afternoon tea on the sun terrace, you can enjoy watching the last skiers carve their way past the chalet on their final home run.

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea

The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.

Children's High Tea

In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.

Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels

New for 2013/14 Season - Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only

Dinner in Chalets

A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host - or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets - and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening.

Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Culinary Choice Dinners in Chalet Hotels

A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection.

Our Chalet Hotel adult-only dinners offer 5 courses, starting with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and a cheese selection to round off your meal in style. All this is then followed by coffee with chocolates to complete your evening's repast! Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.

We update Chalet Olivier's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

2300m at the top of the Three Valleys, VT is the highest ski resort in Europe and part of the biggest linked ski area on the planet. While it’s a place for people who above all else, love to ski, you’ll also find some of the country’s best après including the legendary Folie Douce, as well as weird and wonderful activities like the 1300m Tyrolienne zipwire.

At the summit of the largest ski area in the world and bordering the Vanoise National Park, this is a spectacular place to ski and board. Beginners are well catered for on nursery slopes by the Rond Point des Pistes, where the magic carpets often don't require a lift pass. Kids will love the Junior Park, while the Musaraigne and Campagnols runs in the beginner’s area and the new Deux Combes green are perfect to practice on. With a bit more confidence, take the Pionniers or Plein Sud chairs for some lovely lon...
The après ski here easily rivals other top resorts in the Alps. If you haven't already had the Folie Douce experience, head just under the Plein Sud lifts where the “dancefloor on top of the world” is heaving from 3pm. Another place to party is Bar 360 at the end of the blue Moraine run, which always has live music and cheaper plonk. Back in town, Rue de Gebroulaz is a hub of lively bars where O’Connells is the local Irish pub and the Frog and Roastbeef is a long-time favourite of Brits (if you can drink the...

"Very nice chalet with the perfect location in Val T"

Anonymous, Devon
4/ out of 5
This is a really, really good chalet. I’ve never seen a better location! It’s great for families – it’s close to a soft play area, the swimming pool, shops and cafes, etc. There is also a nursery very nearby with an outside play area which would be good for people travelling with young children. The chalet is also just over the piste from the nursery slopes and lifts, and for people who have skied a little before it’s ski in / ski out. You can literally put your skis on outside the chalet and ski down a fairly easy run, no walking necessary at all. Overall we would definitely stay there again. The living area was nice and spacious, however the rooms were quite small and the bathrooms were basic. We took sole occupancy of the chalet, but I could imagine that if you came here and shared the chalet with other guests you might find the rooms a little cramped. We were a bit unfortunate with our chalet hosts this time, initially they were rubbish. We’ve been away before with the same company and usually their hosts are good, but this time we had to contact the area manager to let them know the hosts weren’t up to scratch. After that the manager came round and made sure that the cleaning was done properly and the hosts’ attitude changed. It’s always important to remember that the hosts change every year anyway, so it doesn’t stop me from wanting to come back here. The food was lovely. We did find that the children’s meals were a bit on the small side, but again I think this was down to the hosts. We’ve never found the children’s meals small before with this company. We noticed that some of the Trip Advisor reviews said that the hot water ran out at times in the chalet, but we never had a problem with this and our group filled the whole chalet.

"Chalet Olivier 2015"

The cooking was absolutely brilliant and we had perfectly good food. The chalet girl who was cooking (whose name I can’t remember) was fantastic, but she was pretty much on her own. The staff were continuously changing and the young boys who supported her literally didn’t know how to peel a potato… it would take days for them to do a simple job. They all worked really hard and it was more a question of the strain on them caused by bad management. The cleanliness of the chalet was basically ok, although a lot of things were broken (for example the light on the mirror in my bathroom). The location was absolutely fine, I got from the chalet to the piste in about 15 seconds and the shops and bars were right next door. Val Thorens is a university ski resort and some of the chalet guests staying on the other side from me complained about the noise, but I slept perfectly fine all week.

"Heady mix of high standards and high altitude"

Its top location just off piste makes this ski in/out catered chalet a favourite amongst keen skiers and snowboarders who love the high altitude and fast access into the vast Three Valleys that are the hallmarks of a ski holiday in Val Thorens. At the end of the day you can enjoy the beautiful views and the final skiers making their way past you down the slope. With three and four course dinners served in the evening with a nicer quality of wine than the average chalet fare, you get to relax in the large open plan dining area together and tell tall tales of derring-do on the snow. The food is yummy, the chalet's hosts are friendly and knowledgeable... and its all capped off with doorstep snowboarding and skiing.
