Le Grand-Bornand

Website
Info

In the heart of the Aravis Mountains, in the Haute-Savoie ideally located between Mont-Blanc, Lake Annecy, and Switzerland, Le Grand-Bornand provides the best the Alps have to offer. It's a great place to visit in summer and winter as well as a genuinely charming village where life bustles all year round. Nature just works out well sometimes.

It all starts with the Aravis Mountains, which provide a magnificent backdrop that culminates with the 2750-meter high Pointe Percée, the range's emblematic peak from which pleasant, verdant, wooded, and gentle contours descend all the way to the village.

The town sits at two distinct elevations: Le Grand-Bornand Village is located at 1000 meters, a typical Savoyard village with its outdoor market, central plaza, church, and shops, as well as the spectacular Bouchet Valley in the background, at the foot of the Aravis Mountains, an ideal location for Nordic skiing.
Six kilometers further up the road leading to Col de la Colombière Pass is Le Grand-Bornand Chinaillon. Located at 1300 meters elevation, and serving as the main base area for alpine skiing, the well-preserved historic village center dates back to the 17th century.
