Excellent Value, Authentic French Ski Experience…
Stunning views & a central location make this a firm favourite with our guests
- Friendly, family-run 2* hotel
- Single rooms available without supplement
- Half-board ensuite accommodation
- Shower room and changing facilities on departure day
- Short walk to the main ski lifts
The main ski lifts are just a short walk away, and the ski hire company we recommend based at the foot of the lifts offers guests use of their heated lockers overnight, so no need to carry your gear back and forth each day, or trudge around in ski boots after a long day on the piste.
There is a great little bakery and tea room next door, a popular bar across the square, a couple of supermarkets, plus several shops selling ski wear, regional food and souvenirs close by. There is even a local market on Wednesday mornings, if you fancy a quick browse before hitting the slopes.
Hotel la Pointe Percée is also close to the free ski-bus stop, meaning you can easily ski both resorts of Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz on your short ski break, with La Clusaz just a 10 minute bus ride away. With your inclusive lift pass covering both resorts, it’s so easy to take advantage of everything on offer in the attractive Aravis Mountains ski domain.
Along with just a 1 hour transfer from Geneva airport, the superb location of this hotel helps you to make the most of your short ski break from start to finish, with a minimum of hassle and maximum time on the slopes.
You will find Claudette and her team very professional, friendly and accommodating, she speaks good English and is always on hand to answer questions or offer advice.
She has become a firm favourite amongst our guests and can’t do enough for you.
Right in the heart of the village
All amenities to hand, allowing you the maximum amount of time on the slopes.
- 21 traditional ensuite rooms

Hotel La Pointe Percée – Rooms
This warm and welcoming hotel has 21 bedrooms which are decorated in a traditional, cosy Savoyarde style. Each room has an ensuite shower room, a TV, telephone and hairdryer.
Some of the rooms have south facing balconies with panoramic views looking over the village centre and Aravis mountain range.
This hotel is good for solo travellers, as it has 2 single rooms which can be booked without a single supplement (subject to availability).
Free WiFi is available in the common areas of the hotel and some rooms.
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, giving you the opportunity to ski all day and leave for the airport feeling refreshed.
Hotel La Pointe Percée – Social Facilities
Whilst missing a cosy lounge onsite, 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 just across the square, complete with pool tables and a great atmosphere, which more than makes up for the lack of a comfortable social space inside the hotel itself.
In addition it a great opportunity to meet up with other skiers staying in the area, to enjoy the more social aspect of a ski holiday if you wish.
There are several restaurants, bars and shops surrounding the hotel, including a couple of great bakeries and 2 small supermarkets. 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 half-board basis, including a traditional continental breakfast and 3-course evening meal. The buffet breakfast is taken in the bright hotel dining room, and dinner is served in the restaurant conveniently located directly below the hotel, which was taken over by new management in time for the winter 2019 – 20 season and is proving very popular with our guests.
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.
