At the foot of the slopes…
Les Glaieuls, a lovely 2* hotel located right beside the ski lifts of Le Grand Bornand.
- Ski-in, Ski-out
- 19 bedroom 2* Hotel
- Half board, wine with dinner
- Ski hire shop downstairs
- 1 hour transfer from Geneva
The hotel has 19 ensuite bedrooms, a bar and lounge set around an open fire. After the lifts close and the skiers leave, this is a very quite setting away from the bustle of the village, especially peaceful at night once the lifts have closed. This could be ideal for families who want easy access to the pistes, but peace and quiet away from the main resort in the evening.
In the evening you can expect to sample some very tasty, locally produced food and wine in the dining room, with full mountain views.
Marion and Frank will be your main point of contact and are always on hand to answer your questions and offer great advice on the ski area, resort and local activities.
Set up so that you can make the most of your time on the slopes
- Cosy lounge with open fire
- Mountain views
- Cosy Bar and sunny terrace
- Excellent restaurant
- Lovely quiet location
Hotel Les Glaieuls – Rooms
The hotel has 19 ensuite bedrooms on 2 main floors. The rooms provide a real ‘mountain’ atmosphere, and are also equipped with a telephone and TV. Many of the bathrooms have been recently renovated. This years project is to improve the WiFi signal to all bedrooms.
As with most hotels, check out is on the morning of departure – but they offer a room for you to change and shower in after your ski day, and before heading to the airport.
Hotel Les Glaieuls – Social Facilities
Once the ski lifts close in the evening, Hotel Les Glaieuls, which is set back off the road, becomes a lovely peaceful and quiet place to spend your evening around the fire in the cosy lounge or in the bar, and meet fellow snow enthusiasts.
It also benefits from being an easy 5 minute flat walk to the village centre where you can enjoy lots of restaurants and bars. There is an ice rink and cinema which you can reach in a 10 minute walk; during the day you can take the local free ski-bus.
Hotel Les Glaieuls – Food
The dining room is designed so that you can take in beautiful mountain views over dinner, and the restaurant is highly rated for its excellent food and high level of service. You can enjoy regional wines and dishes made with locally sourced produce.
The chef team can cater for all your dietary needs – please ensure you notify us in advance.
Hotel Les Glaieuls – Location & Skiing Access
The hotel is located at the bottom of the home run, and right beside the main lift station of Le Grand Bornand. It is just an hour’s airport transfer from Geneva.
The hotel is just outside the main village centre, but it’s only a 2 minute bus ride or an easy 5 minutes if you prefer to walk. Regular ski buses to the village (free with your lift pass) leave from outside the hotel throughout the day until 6pm.
Conveniently though the ski hire shop is located just below the hotel, so you can get set up straight away, no hassle and get skiing first thing the next morning from your door. Once the lifts close, the area around the hotel, which is set back from the main road becomes very quiet.
In the village you will find a good range of restaurants, cafes and bars, shops, ATMs, a post office and a mini supermarket.
In addition, it is only a 10 minute bus journey on the free ski-bus to the neighbouring resort of La Clusaz, where you can ski another 120km of piste at no extra cost; the lift pass which covers the entire Aravis ski area is included in your package. Plus, the village there has lots going on, with plenty more bars, restaurants, shops and night clubs, should you wish to experience another resort whilst you are there.
Our ‘Lite’ Package at Hotel Les Glaieuls
With our ‘Lite Packages’, you benefit from our experience and support in arranging all the elements of your holidays within an inclusive package – yet with more independence and flexibility as to how you eventually enjoy your holiday.
Our ‘Lite’ Package Ski Holidays Include…
- Half board catering
- Full Aravis Region Lift Pass
- Airport Transfers from Geneva
- Access to Off-Site Support if Required
All the essentials in a convenient package
All of our ‘Lite Packages’ include your accommodation, airport transfers and full region lift pass – but unlike on the ‘Classic Packages’, you won’t see one of our team every day and we do not have our Ski Team on site to actively manage your days – leaving you to ski and enjoy your holiday independently.
However, we will still be available and easily accessible to support and help you should you require it! Our Ski Reps will be present in Le Grand Bornand on your first evening so you can meet them to ask any questions, or to use their experience of the Aravis resorts.

Airport transfers are included on break start / end dates, for flights arriving at Geneva 1500-2100, departing 1600 or later. Transfer time from Geneva to Le Grand Bornand is just 1 hour.
Ski & Snowboard Hire
We partner with Paret Sports who are located at the bottom of the telecabines – and provide a ski locker facility for our guests, meaning you can walk to/from the ski lifts in your normal shoes. They offer a discounted rate to our guests and you will find Eric and Audrey very helpful.
If any of your party need them, we can help arrange ski lessons during your stay. We’ve been working for many years with ESF in le Grand Bornand, who give us exclusive use of English-speaking instructors for Ski Weekender-only group lessons which tie in with the short break format.
Small group lessons are possible throughout the season, on a 3-day – Tuesday to Thursday, or a 4-day – Friday to Monday format. We can also help arrange private lessons and 1-to-1 tuition.
Ski Clothing Hire
At the Hotel Les Glaieuls, hire of ski jackets, trousers, goggles and gloves can be pre-arranged.
Crèche & Childcare
Le Grand Bornand has a good municipal crèche, which has places available for children from 3 months to 4 years. We can help arrange bookings with them.
