    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.

    The apartments themselves are simple and functional. They each have a kitchenette and there's a mini-market on site to give you full flexibility. Alternatively, you can upgrade to half-board to get your meals included.

    Just be sure to slip off to the wellness area for a relaxing swim, steam and soak before dinner.

    What's Nearby

    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.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.
