Hotel Saytels

Situated in the centre of Le Grand Bornand, Les Saytels is a stylish and welcoming chalet-hotel only 350m from the slopes, and located close to the free ski-bus stop, so you can easily ski both resorts of Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz on your short ski break.

Les Saytels has a very good reputation for its food – a combination of high quality French cuisine, and traditional local specialities – all served in the onsite restaurant ‘La Table du Chalet’.

The hotel has excellent facilities, including a wellness suite housing an outdoor heated swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi, as well as a comfortable lounge bar with an open fire and a billiard room. Everything you need to relax and enjoy your evening after a long day.


Saytels Pool

Although the hotel is close to the centre of the village, and therefore easily accessible to everything the resort has to offer, it is actually in a quiet location, so you get the best of both worlds both on and off your skis.

At only 1 hour away from Geneva Airport, it really is a convenient, comfortable and hassle-free destination for your short ski break, with an extra special touch of luxury included.

Hotel Les Saytels – Rooms

The hotel has a selection of cosy double and twin bedrooms, as well as family rooms, making this an ideal location for couples and small families.

Each room has an ensuite bathroom, along with a flat-screen TV, free WiFi and a high-quality bed for your comfort. Most benefit from a great mountain view and balcony.

Hotel Les Saytels – Social Facilities

The hotel has a stylish and comfortable lounge bar area with an open fire, along with a billiards room, to wind down after your day on the slopes. Great cosy armchairs and sofas create a relaxing, refined feel.

If you want something even more relaxing, there is a unique outdoor heated swimming pool, which forms part of the wellness suite, which also has a hot tub and sauna. Massage treatments are available on-site, payable locally.

If you want to stretch your legs, Hotel Les Saytels is only a short walk from the bars, restaurants and shops, as well as other activities, in the heart of Le Grand Bornand.

Hotel Les Saytels – Food

La Table du Chalet offers a refined dining experience, with a choice between classic French cuisine and traditional Savoyard specialities, using cheese from the local mountains. In fact, the hotel organises optional tours to visit cheese producers, if you want to see how it is still made in this region.

Catering is on a half-board basis, which includes a full continental breakfast buffet and a 3-course evening meal.


Hotel Les Saytels – Location & Skiing Access

The hotel is located in the centre 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, which is included in your package at no extra charge.

Access to the lifts and slopes is either via a 5-minute flat walk or via a free ski-bus which stops nearby and is  just a 1-minute journey to the main Rosay and Joyere telecabines. If you prefer to walk, the ski hire shop that we recommend you use is just by the main ski lifts; they provide heated 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.

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).
