Hotel La Pointe Percée – Rooms
The hotel has 20 ensuite bedrooms which are decorated in a traditional cosy Savoyarde style. Some have south facing balconies with panoramic views looking over the village centre and Aravis mountain range. This hotel is good for solo travellers, as there are a limited number of rooms which can be booked without a single supplement.
As is the norm, check out is on the morning of departure, but this hotel provides you with a recently renovated shower and changing room which you can use on departure day. This gives you the opportunity to ski all day and leave for the airport feeling refreshed.
Hotel La Pointe Percée – Social Facilities
Whilst lacking a cosy lounge, the location of this hotel provides you with everything the village has to offer on your doorstep. Very close by you will find a number of bars – including the favourite Deux Guides complete with pool tables. There are several restaurants, bars and shops surrounding the hotel, including a couple of great bakeries as well as a small supermarket.
If you feel like a break from skiing, every Wednesday morning there is a traditional market which takes place in the square just opposite the hotel, where you can mix with the locals as well as other visitors. You will find a wide selection of locally produced cheeses, cured meats, wines and souvenirs, specialist to the region.
Hotel La Pointe Percée – Food
Stays at Hotel la Pointe Percée are offered on a bed and breakfast basis. The buffet breakfast is taken in the hotel dining room, and there are plenty of bars and restaurants in the village centre, serving local mountain specialities such as fondue, tartiflette and raclette, or you can simply go for a pizza or a steak, the choice is all yours.
Hotel La Pointe Percée – Location & Skiing Access
This hotel is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Le Grand Bornand, just an hour’s airport transfer from Geneva and a short 10 minute bus ride to the neighbouring ski resort of La Clusaz. The interstation bus is included in your package at no extra charge.
Access to the lifts and slopes is via a free ski-bus, which stops just across the road and is a 2 minute journey to the main telecabines. If you prefer to walk, the ski hire shop that we recommend you use is just by the main ski lifts; they provide lockers so that you can walk from the hotel in 5 minutes, then change into your ski boots when you get there.
There are several restaurants, bars, newsagents, ATMs, post office, mini supermarkets, bakeries, ski/outdoor gear and gift shops very close to the Hotel. Directly across the square is the Tourist Office, where you can find more information on what is happening in the village and surrounding area.
Our ‘Lite’ Package at Hôtel La Pointe Percée
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…
- Catered accommodation
- 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.

If any of your party need them, we can help to arrange ski lessons during your stay. We’ve been working for many years with the ESF in Le Grand Bornand, who give us access to their English-speaking instructors for Ski Weekender-only private ski lessons, which tie in with the short break format.
Simply let us know what dates you would like your lesson(s), how long for (1-2 hours at a time) and for how many people (up to a maximum of 6 people per instructor).
