1. The Location

A natural setting

Situated in the heart of the Aravis massif, at an altitude of 1,000 metres, Le Grand-Bornand continues to enchant its visitors who come to enjoy this winter sports playground which, when the snow melts, gives way to green pastures and alpine lakes surrounded by snow-capped peaks.

Getting to Le Grand-Bornand

With its ideal location, just 40 minutes from Annecy, an hour from Geneva, and just over two hours from Lyon, Le Grand-Bornand is attracting more and more people.

2. In summer and winter alike

The winter season

Those who wish to invest in Le Grand-Bornand for the skiing will enjoy the eighty-four kilometres of pistes. Thanks to the exposure of the ski area, there is usually plenty of sunshine.

There are runs suitable for both beginners and advanced skiers, including the three kilometre Denivel’Maxx with a vertical drop of 1,100 metres, as well as zones for freeride and freestyle skiing.

Did you know ? You can access the pistes via the Rosay gondola in the centre of the village, or from the Grand-Bornand Chinaillon snow front.

The summer season

During the summer months, Le Grand-Bornard becomes a hikers paradise. No matter where you are in the resort, there is always a hiking trail on your doorstep leading up to the mountain pastures, or following a more technical route through rocky higher altitude terrain. The resort also offers a range of other activities to enjoy with family or friends during the summer season.

 

3. An Authentic Mountain Village

A distinct local culture

Le Grand-Bornand has always been recognised as a destination with a strong local identity, even as it continues to evolve. Buying a property here is an investment in a mid-mountain resort where people live all year round, and with an active village life in every season.

This human scale resort is ideal for those who appreciate the simple pleasures in life, where cosy restaurants rub shoulders with centuries-old chalets in an unspoiled natural setting.

Did you know ? Le Grand-Bornand is the home of Reblochon cheese. You can learn about local agriculture by visiting one of the sixty-five farms in and around the resort. Food lovers are sure to enjoy sampling the local cheeses and other produce.

An artistic soul

Le Grand-Bornand has a vibrant arts scene with artist studios tucked away in the narrow streets, and creative works on every corner. There are even works of art adorning the ski lifts up on the mountain.

4. A Great Place for Families

Recognised as a family-friendly resort

Le Grand-Bornand holds the Famille Plus label, and has much to offer new buyers with families. Many events and activities are available for you to enjoy with your children. From parent-child yoga to treasure hunts and creative workshops, you can be sure that the kids will be just as happy with your investment in Le Grand-Bornand as you are.

The ski area has many easily accessible beginners' areas, and learning to ski here is always fun and enjoyable.

Events to make the whole family smile

There are numerous children's events in the resort. The international festival of live performances for a young audience, "Au Bonheur des Mômes", has been a huge success since its inception, and gets rave reviews year after year. In 2017, the festival was attended by 90,000 people. This magical, mischievous, light-hearted and poetic event for the whole family takes place every August.
