This pulls out into a double bed.  It uses a single matress and so there is no seem to contend with.   The duvet and pillows can be kept on the shelf above.
The banquette seating means you can get everyone round the table.
There is a second sofa bed.  This also pulls out into a double (but there is not enough space to pull both sofa beds out).   It is the second choice option if you prefer a very soft mattress.
The compact kitchen is equipped with everything to self cater.  The oven is a microwave oven only.  There is a slow cooker which is perfect for skiing.  Put a joint on to cook before skiing and it will be ready on return.   There is kettle, tea pot, coffee machine (no filters required - just add cold water and coffee), toaster and a rice cooker.
Not the clearest photo - but you can see the car park - not too far away!
You can ski down to about 30 metres from the front door.
All the apartments in Olympie have entrance doors at the back of the building.
Apartment 7 is in the bottom right side of the photo.   La Brizolee below is a popular family restaurant.
The kindergarten is directly opposite.  Les Petits Loops will get your under 5 on skis and has its own mini carpet.   You can also see the entrance to the cross country ski route that will take you up round the beautiful Lac Tueda.
 
It is 150 metres from the front door of Olympie to the main Plattieres lift.

This is fully equipped for self-catering use.  Fridge, ceramic hob, built-in microwave oven, dishwasher, kettle, coffee machine, toaster, non-stick saucepans, kettle and all the basic crockery for a fully equipped kitchen. There is also a slow cooker (great for putting on a joint in the morning ready for eating after skiing). There is also a rice cooker for perfectly and easily cooked rice.

Bathroom
The bathroom has a bath with a shower in the bath.  The shower has a full height attachment so you can stand in the shower.   The hot water is on a circulating pumped system which means hot water at excellent pressure appears within a couple of seconds.

Access
It is exactly 150 metres to the main Plattieres lift.   You can ski in and ski out from the chalet.
It is 50 metres to the supermarket. There are 6 restaurants/bars and 3 ski shops giving the area a charming atmosphere. The bus stop for the free bus to Meribel is also right by the apartments. There is plenty of free parking by the supermarket.  It is not possible to park directly outside the chalet as this is a pedestrian only area but one can off load by the supermarket and then it is only about 30-50 metres to the apartment.

Cancellation (your part)
If you need to cancel your holiday then I will endeavour to re-let the apartment as soon as I have emailed confirmation of the cancellation. If the apartment is successfully let then amounts paid will be returned to you except for the initial deposit of £100 and less further costs of sale. If you have booked more than one apartment then £100 will be retained per apartment per week for cancellations and can not be offset against other bookings.

Cancellation (our part)
If, for reasons beyond our control (that is Force Majeure such as fire or flood), we are unable to let the apartment to you, then we will return any and all amounts paid for the rental of the apartment. We will inform you as soon as any situation arises. In addition we will endeavour to help you find alternative accommodation. However we do not accept liability for any travel costs or other costs incurred beyond the original rental amount.

Insurance
It is a requirement of the booking that adequate ski holiday insurance must be taken out at the time of booking. Please check your policy covers you in the event you have to cancel the holiday. As the apartments are let out on a regular basis to clients we cannot guarantee the security of the apartments or the ski lockers and the best thing is to obtain adequate holiday insurance.
