Le Grand-Bornand is the "pearl" destination of the Annecy Mountains region and is a true mountain ideal. Its chalets, more than 400 of which date back to the 17th century, stand side by side with the sports and leisure facilities of a ski village recognized as one of France's most beautiful resorts. With a range of services reinforced this winter, Le Grand-Bornand is at once bohemian, adventurous, and fun. TAKES CARE OF ME! and epicurean, cultivating a naturalness marked by authenticity and elegance. This is evidenced by the discovery, between two trips on the slopes, of the beautiful addresses that irrigate the secret streets of the village: artists' studios, boutiques and cosy chalets... visitors and locals forming the same tonic, open and happy community.
More than ever, Le Grand-Bornand invites you to give meaning to your mountain experience by offering a winter tourist offer that is good for the body and the spirit, supported by a concern for living well together... coupled with a particular care for an envied nature that has earned it the right to join the very closed club of resorts that hold the environmental label "Flocon Vert". Contemplative people can enjoy the luxury of a saving retreat in the palette of its preserved landscapes, while thrill-seekers can take advantage of the dynamic events that are regularly cited as an example, in particular the organization of the French round of the Biathlon World Cup, from December 13 to 19, and the 13th edition of Glisse en Coeur on March 18, 19 and 20, 2022.
LE GRAND-BORNAND ONE DAY... LE GRAND-BORNAND ALWAYS
Promising to (re)discover the mountain at its own pace, between lively traditions, art of living and sports, cultural and leisure facilities in keeping with one of the most beautiful villages in the French Alps, it is no coincidence that Le Grand-Bornand stands out in the French mountain summer landscape with, exceptionally, nearly 40% of its annual tourist activity concentrated in the summer season.
It is not by chance that Le Grand-Bornand stands out in the French mountain summer landscape with, exceptionally, nearly 40% of its annual tourist activity concentrated in the summer season. In bohemian, adventurous or epicurean mode, everything here breathes authenticity, excellence and good living, just like the heart of the village with its beautiful houses clustered around the granary and its church. The pastures cascade down to the hamlets of chalets dating from the 17th century, creating a setting conducive to the discovery of a well-preserved mountain with a strong character, a limitless outdoor playground where visitors and locals form a single open and happy community.
Just a stone's throw from the city and the highest point of the Annecy Mountains territory, this mountain lives and vibrates all year round, culminating in the 29th edition of the international festival of live shows for young audiences, Au Bonheur des Mômes, from August 23 to 27, which will bring this "carpe diem" summer to a close in style. It doesn't matter how much time is spent here: the essential is elsewhere. In the intensity that each one has to live his Grand-Bornand. So, for one day or for ever: find yourself... at home
A medium mountain village with exceptional snow cover, Le Grand-Bornand, which has been awarded the "Famille Plus" label, is a popular winter destination for families. The quality of the services and services offered to children and parents (daycare from 3 months, kindergarten, ski schools), a preserved and open environment between Lake Annecy and Mont-Blanc combined with original activities, naturally make it an ideal place to stay throughout the winter.
