The Olympique bar and hotel is legendary in Le Tour. Family run since the beginning of time, this wooden chalet-type building stands at the bottom of the bubble lift that takes you up to the Balme ski area.
The simplest way of describing this place is 'traditional' we could say retro chic, but this is purely original 1907s decoration through and through. Don't bother trying to reserve on the iternet - that hasn't been invented yet here - either pop in or ring.
If you're looking for a lunch stop the Olympique is open for lunches in winter and summer, as well as offering accommodation in 13 rooms.
Meals are simple and traditional mountain fodder, don't expect any glamour or a customer service that exceeds expectations.
