The hotel is ideally situated on a quiet cul-de-sac next door to the brand new telecabine ratier lift, which will take you to the main ski area - excellent for beginner skiers as they are able to get up the mountain and back down in safety. The ski area of Serre Chevalier is a bit of a hidden secret. Regularly rated in the top 10 in Europe, it has a superb mix of high alpine motorway skiing, tree runs, gentle plateaus as well as Olympic standard pistes. Entertainment including a bowling alley, ice rink, local shops, restaurants and bars are all conveniently within 5-10 mins walking distance from the Club.
About Club Olympic
A fantastic hotel with a superb setting 5 minutes’ walk from the brand new télécabine Ratier lift, the Club Olympic has developed into one of our most impressive hotels.
The spacious communal areas and sun terrace are relaxing spots to return to, and your group have everything from a bowling alley to local shops within a 5 minute walk.
Large and well designed, the en-suite student bedrooms sleep 4-6. Many have south-facing balconies with stunning views. Teachers have comfortable twin rooms, with relaxing balconies for enjoying that precious moment of peace at the end of each day.
Look forward to delicious meals served in our spacious hotel restaurant. Start each day with a continental buffet breakfast of cereals, croissants, jams, breads, cold meats and cheeses, served with tea, coffee, hot chocolate and fruit juices.
At midday, enjoy buffet lunches or two-course meals of energising pasta dishes and fresh fruit, or you can request a packed lunch and eat on the slopes. Each evening, we serve delicious and filling meals.
Our Club offer 24 hour assistance from our English-speaking staff and the Olympic has night porters to assist staff with any issues or enquiries. We operate a security-coded locked door during the night to ensure the safety of your group, as this is our main priority.
Our first Equity trip has been a huge success! The Reps and hotel staff could not have been any more helpful. So now that I am back from this year's trip - what can you offer us for next year?
Ms Spiers, Party Leader
Throughout the week, there was some great skiing and amazing progress was made by all. It was wonderful to see expressions of joy each day as new skills and achievements were accomplished.
My reflection on the week is one of great pride in the students: to see how many students looked out for each other. We were so pleased to take students on a fantastic learning experience to France and look forward to next year's trip.
