Le Grand Bornand – picturesque, convenient & relaxed!
It would be hard to imagine a more picturesque, traditional and relaxed setting in which to enjoy a short ski break.
Fondly known as ‘Grand Bo’, Le Grand Bornand is steeped in history and Savoyard charm, with a pretty church and traditional square – the home of the regular Wednesday market – at the heart of village life. From there you also have fantastic views across to the entire Aravis mountain range, and down the valley.
Smaller than neighbouring La Clusaz, it is a quieter village, for those looking to avoid the rowdy apres-ski scene so typical of larger, more well-known ski resorts.
Authentic Savoyard charm in this ‘real mountain village’
Despite its size, Grand Bo remains a ‘year round’ working village. Its’ quaint, compact centre has a range of shops, bars and restaurants – perfect for spending some post-ski downtime.
Away from Alpine skiing, the village boasts some fantastic cross-country ski trails, as well as plenty of waymarked snow-shoe walking routes, a sledging slope and an ice rink.
The resort always organises a host of fun activities throughout the season, both on-piste and off, and for visitors of all ages.
At only an hour’s transfer from Geneva airport, Le Grand Bornand is a perfect Alpine resort in which to enjoy a charming and laid-back short ski break, for skiers of all abilities.
