Olympie 3 is a beautiful chalet-style apartment (see more details here) that sleeps 10 guests which, in the past, was part of the Purple Ski portfolio. Now, Purple Ski simply "manages" the apartment and provides staff to the owners. The majority of the sales are through the owners' agent.

The chalet-apartment is run by a couple who live in, and who are jointly and wholly responsible for the day to day management of the chalet, including cooking, housekeeping/cleaning and shopping, and for ensuring that the needs of the owners and their clients and guests are met at all times.

The service offering at Olympie 3 is different to that of the other Purple Ski chalets in that the food is "good quality home-cooked food" instead of "fine dining", there are good, local wines but no fine wines or unlmited champagne, and there is no driving service nor service on the chalet couple's day off.

The hours are long and the job is physically and emotionally demanding and you need to be an effective team. You must have extremely high work standards, be customer-focused, self motivated, resourceful, take pride in your work at all times and be conscientious and highly organised.

As Olympie 3 is some distance (10-15 minutes by bus) away from Purple Ski's other chalets, you need to be willing to make a effort to socialise and stay in touch with the rest of the team, but also happy to be relatively independent.
