I will try to put some thoughts down for you. Accommodation was pretty good. It wasn’t luxurious by any stretch, but for a ski resort there was tons of room. I’m used to chalet accommodation where you get something of a box room for two people, but we had a spacious bedroom and a large living area. Very impre... + more

The hotel itself caters for lots of school parties, and they did give us some vouchers to use in the canteen but we didn’t use them (think of the queue for the Next sale at 6 in the morning... and times that by 60!). They’re cheap and cheerful but they had all the amenities you needed. The apartments are cl... + more

Can’t think of anything that would make these apartments better. We were a group of 7 staying in 2 separate apartments; they were just about big enough for 4 people each. Sleeping arrangements worked fine, there was one room with 2 beds and then a sofa and pull out bed. We were in the self catering section an... + more

Location - where is Olympic Village Apartments

Given its construction for the athletes, the apartments are in a convenient location for both the amenities in town and access to the slopes. Within easy walking distance are the Fraiteve Discesa, Garnel and Cit Roc ski lifts, along with several beginner tows.

In the evening or and on an afternoon off, it’s a short walk into the centre, with great places to sample excellent Italian food and drink. Try Il Centro for the best steaks in town, or the excellent pizza at Pinky, which also transforms at night with live music and a buzzing atmosphere.

Built for the athletes of the 2006 Winter Games, the Olympic Village Apartments give you the facilities of a slopeside hotel, without the high-end price tag.

The complex is just 5 minutes’ walk from the lifts and 10 minutes from the centre of Sestriere, with its many places to eat, drink and shop. But with panoramic views of the Argentera Valley and Montagne della Luna, plus a restaurant and bar onsite, you might prefer a chilled night in.

This package holiday to Olympic Village Apartments in Sestriere, Italy departs Sunday 6th January 2019, for a 7 night stay on a "self catering" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

The wonderful thing about Sestriere is that it’s really easy to reach – only about an hour and a half by car from Turin airport. Things are just as convenient when you arrive: This was the first purpose built resort in the Alps (thanks to the owners of Fiat). While it won’t be found on any lists of the world’s prettiest ski towns, its handy location more than makes up for it - high on the mountainside in the Northern Province of Turin, near the Franco-Italian border. Most hotels are rated 3/4 stars, while ...
There’s a whopping 400km of slopes to explore here, and the fact that it hosted the 2006 winter Olympics is a fine mark of quality. Two local ski areas - Mount Sises and Motta - are accessible directly from the town and with the Milky Way lift pass in hand, you can ski far and wide across the Via Lattea. Sauze d'Oulx is easy to reach by gondola, and Sestriere’s also a super base for day trips across the border to Montgenevre in France. One of the best things for beginners is the price of ski lessons – which a...
Après-ski livens up at the weekends with the influx of local Italians who come to enjoy their free time in the town. During the week the resort is more relaxed but still offers a fun vibe and good nightlife with plenty of bars to wind down in and reminisce over the days adventures. Groups will always find great places to spend their evenings with a few drinks and delicious food. For those all-important après-ski drinks, Pinky’s Pizzeria is the place to be (and if you’ve worked up an appetite on the slopes, i...

"Not luxurious but lots of room, food plentiful, service ok, downstairs wine bar a delight"

Sean O’Brien, Norhtampton
3/ out of 5
I will try to put some thoughts down for you. Accommodation was pretty good. It wasn’t luxurious by any stretch, but for a ski resort there was tons of room. I’m used to chalet accommodation where you get something of a box room for two people, but we had a spacious bedroom and a large living area. Very impressive. The food was plentiful, and sometimes due to the nature of mass catering it didn’t quite live up to the expectation but there were always plenty of alternatives if you didn’t like one of the options. The pizza's were excellent!! Service at the hotel was ok - a little haphazard sometimes and the hotel is a large sprawl that can be difficult to orientate yourself around. However the downstairs wine bar was a delight, with excellent service, great and reasonably priced wines and some excellent little nibbles always included on the side.

"Nothing bad to say really"

The hotel itself caters for lots of school parties, and they did give us some vouchers to use in the canteen but we didn’t use them (think of the queue for the Next sale at 6 in the morning... and times that by 60!). They’re cheap and cheerful but they had all the amenities you needed. The apartments are clean and well appointed, with a central location to all the slopes and a good cooking section. You can either eat out – there are plenty of good restaurants in town – or you can cook for yourself. We cooked in the apartment all week – there are plenty of supermarkets in town and one in the actual hotel, so you can either pick up some food when you get off the slopes or nip down and get it. We had a good week – it was fun all round. It’s about a 300m walk uphill to the main part of town (whichever way you go), but if you’re fit enough to ski it’s no problem at all! To get back you literally unclip your skis and cross the road. Ours had two single beds in the living area and one double in the main bedroom. We also had a shower instead of a bath.

"Very, very nice apartment"

Dougal Moir, Berwick Upon Tweed

We had a brilliant time, loved the apartment which was very clean and quite modern, all the facilities were great and you had everything you needed. The apartments are much nicer than your normal ski apartment, which can sometimes be really small and basic. They had a supermarket in the actual apartment building which was great. I don’t know if the owners of the apartments are still doing it, but we got 2 meal vouchers for a couple of free meals in the restaurant. We really enjoyed them and it was a good way to save money on 2 nights! The restaurant is very busy and very Italian and the food was lovely (kind of a buffet set up). We were really close to the slopes which was handy for getting across to Sansicario and Sauze as its near the main lift that takes you there. You’re not far from the bars and restaurants either so you’re really in a top location. The only thing I would change: they were done up after the Olympics which was a while back now and they’re probably need of being updated. Apart from this they were brilliant and I’d absolutely recommend staying here.

"Good self catering apts"

Jacob Clark, London

Can’t think of anything that would make these apartments better. We were a group of 7 staying in 2 separate apartments; they were just about big enough for 4 people each. Sleeping arrangements worked fine, there was one room with 2 beds and then a sofa and pull out bed. We were in the self catering section and cooked for ourselves all week, there’s a shop nearby where you can pick up food and drink. The location of the actual apartments is really handy as it’s only an easy 5 minute walk to get to the slopes.
