Mottaret.com            Olympie I ~ Apartments 2, 7 & 13

 

One of the most sought after chalet residences in Mottaret.  The modern, under-floor heated interior is clad in traditional wood and stone. Each apartment has its own balcony (with great views.)   

There are about twenty apartments in Olympie of which three are available for rental through this website. The apartments are on the first and second floors.

[Note: Olympie II and Olympie III are also in Le Chatelet - see map - nos 58 & 59.]

Location:  Possibly one of the best located chalets in the Three Valleys.

Olympie 1 is number 51 in the map (click on image for larger version). 

It is right next to the Plattières bubble lift towards Mt Vallon and Val Thorens.  It is then a few metres further on to the Plan du Lac lift directly to the top of Courchevel.   A short walk across the piste (or through the tunnel underneath) brings you to the tourist office, cinema, post office and commercial shopping centre of Mottaret where there are a number of further restaraurants and bars.    

On the ground floor of the Mont Vallon Hotel, Le Pralin, Olympie 1 and Plan du Lac is a parade of shops and restaurants and a supermarket.  This is the centre of the "Le Chatelet" part of Mottaret.

This part of Mottaret is car free as the road passes through a tunnel underneath the area emerging just by the supermarket in the bottom right of the photo .  There is then free parking just to the right of the photo.

 

The Tourist Office and the main centre of Mottaret with a number of further restaurants, bars and nightclub is on the other side of the central piste area.  Click on photo for larger image.

The various ski schools meet in the centre.  There are two main gondola/bubble lifts running to the peaks of either side of the valley.  There are then a further two chair lifts running half way up the slopes.  There are three moving carpets and a short drag lift for beginners.
