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.

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.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Olivier

We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff involved in food preparation are trained to the City & Guilds qualification – Level 2 in Food Safety during the pre-season training course. There is a continental breakfast is every morning and a breakfast hot option, afternoon tea and evening dinners are provided for six days of the week in both chalets and Chalet Hotels.

Breakfast

A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a hot option, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff day off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.

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 day off. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready.

Children's High Tea

In chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 11 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.

Dinner in Chalets

In the evenings our hosts will cook you a three-course adult only meal six nights a week. This starts with a glass of prosecco followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! There is also an option for vegetarians, please warn us in advance.

One of these meals will be a regional meal with the menu depending on which country you are staying in.

On the staff one night off per week just a continental breakfast is provided and it’s a great opportunity for you to experience some local restaurants in your resort. Speak to your resort representative for recommendations and help with reservations.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are available in our properties – just advise us at time of bookings so that we can ensure that our staff can prepare. 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. Our Chalet Hosts will discuss your dietary requirements with you upon arrival to the chalet or Chalet Hotel.

Christmas and New Year

All of our chalets and Chalet Hotels will serve a traditional Christmas dinner with a glass of Champagne to start off the evening. This will include roast turkey with all of the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers and party hats plus a fantastic Alpine atmosphere in which to enjoy the day.

A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!

Our Quality Wines

We are very proud of our wine selection for chalets and Chalet Hotels, which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full-bodied reds, for a variety of palates. We select our wines in conjunction with our good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together we choose our wines for the coming season, based on our menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however, the feedback we have received from our guests over recent seasons endorses our aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!

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.

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.

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.
