The Olan (named after a local mountain) has some pretty incredible views of the mountains from the large south-facing wrap-around balcony, perfect if you love getting a good sunset picture! It's also not a bad spot to enjoy a drink or two before your home-cooked evening meal.


The chalet sits in a peaceful residential area with easy access to one of the main lifts in the resort - the Diable chairlift 200m away. The Place de Venosc is only 100m away and has a good choice of bars, shops and cafés which are perfect for an early evening stroll. For a bit more life, take a 10-15 walk and you'll find yourself in the main resort hub.



It's a really lovely place to relax and unwind. There's well-seasoned wood panelling on the walls which gives off an almost library-like calm. Couple that with the antique yet unfussy furniture and you have a rustic style with slightly contemporary soft furnishings to add to the appeal and atmosphere.

About the resort

A great example of an all-rounder. Long hours of sunshine (when it's not snowing) and snowsure slopes certainly help, but Les Deux Alpes is all about the variety of things to do, both on and off the mountain.


A superb resort for families (one of our top 10), groups and all standards of skier or boarder. Beginner slopes near the resort and on the glacier make it a great place to learn whilst enjoying the glorious mountains rising up all around you. Intermediates have plenty of choice while experts should hire a guide and test their freeriding ability on the legendary off-piste runs of the ominously named La Grave. 



The resort is large and well laid out with two main roads; one in, one out. Along each road, you'll come across an excellent range of sports shops, gift shops, restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets. The après-ski is as lively as you want it to be with over 40 bars, restaurants and nightclubs on your doorstep.

Evening meals are a three-course set-menu with regionally inspired dishes and free-flowing wine throughout the week, all followed by fresh coffee. We provide evening meals on six nights a week leaving you free to head out and explore the resort on one evening. 


The Olan sleeps 10 to 13 people in five good sized bedrooms. Most are ensuite with a mix of twin, triple and quads meaning that any group make up can be handled easily here.


Each room is simple with rustic furniture, gorgeous wood panelling and cast iron radiators. The soft furnishings are sympathetic to the surroundings to create a real sense of warmth and style. You'll also find luxurious Temple Spa toiletries in each bathroom. 


Neilson Mountain Experts

Don’t forget that you get free guiding and coaching throughout the week from fully qualified ski and board instructors with our Mountain Expert service.


Designed for confident blue and red-run skiers and snowboarders, they'll show you around the mountain on free guiding sessions, and even offer free coaching sessions to help you become a more confident skier or snowboarder.
