Location

Le Grand Bornand

Le Grand Bornand is an idyllic Alpine village which happens to be surrounded by some great skiing and in summer, a superb mountain playground.

There are none of the huge hotel complexes you'll find in other ski resorts – just a friendly welcome all year round.

Families are particularly welcome, with a great programme of activities to keep kids of all ages busy and happy.

The OVO Network Review

This 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, semi-detached chalet in Chinaillon spans over 3 floors with 170m2 of floor space. (There are two bathrooms on the top floor, and an extra shower, wc, and hand basin on the ground floor by the sauna)

Chalet L’Ours Blanc is a Ski-in/ Ski-out Chalet only 30 metres away from the slopes, and a short 5 minute walk from the centre of the village.

With two double bedrooms, one twin and one bunkbed room, the chalet offers the perfect setting for two families with children of a similar age travelling together.

The main living space offers two seating areas, where you can make use of the TV and DVD player, or unwind in front of the log fire. This open plan area is shared with a well-equipped kitchen, which overlooks the generous dining area.

In the heart of the Chinaillon landscape, with access to 220km of sunny pistes if you take the Aravis lift pass, this cosy chalet is the perfect home away from home for families of all skiing abilities. There is no shortage of activities to keep you busy in the surrounding areas; you can make use of the cinema and ice skating rink nearby and in the summer months enjoy the swimming pool or climb the incredible Via Ferrata!

Guests can kick back and enjoy the unbeatable views of the Aiguille Verte and Mont Lachat from the comfort of the terrace and outdoor seating area, or relax in the sauna after a full day on the pistes. This Chalet truly offers an all round, unforgettable experience for the whole family!

“Staying here has given us a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the mountains, both in winter and summer”

“I first came to the Chinaillon area eight years ago with my brother Christopher, who had been skiing in the area for 20 years and was impressed by the excellent snow record. We were lucky enough to get the chance to build our own chalet right by the slopes, and two years later, my wife Su and I were having our first Christmas at L’Ours Blanc with our sons Callum and Gabriel, surrounded by the snowy Aravis mountains.

Staying here has given us a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the mountains, both in winter and summer. The village is unspoilt, and the slopes are a safe place for the children to explore and improve their snowboarding and skiing.

Having skied at various Alpine resorts over the last 30 years, I can’t think of a better place where older children can be left to do their own thing on the mountain, within reason.

The chalet is right next to a green run, which takes you straight down to the main chairlifts and ski school in the village, and at the end of the day, you can ski straight back to the chalet. In the evening, the boys love to go sledging on the beginners’ slope behind the chalet, and once a week the slopes are floodlit for night skiing, one of our favourite things to do.

There are plenty of restaurants and bars in the village, as well as a supermarket, swimming pool and health spa in the new MGM complex, just a five-minute walk away. Having all these facilities so close means you don’t really a car.

We try to get to the chalet two or three times each winter, and on at least one of these trips, we arrive by taxi from the airport. When we bought the chalet, we hadn’t really thought about spending summer holidays here, but we have been pleasantly surprised.

There’s so much to do so close to the chalet. We go mountain biking, and road biking down the Col de la Colombiere (one of the Tour de France routes just behind the chalet)

There are plenty of walking routes, and there is a great open air swimming pool and a forest rope park in Le Grand Bornand. The children love to cycle from the chalet down to Le Grand Bornand, and they can put their bikes on the cable car to bring them back up the mountain to the chalet.

I hope you find our family account helpful, you can find loads more information on this website and from the tourist office. We have a manager in the village who will meet you on your arrival and help you with any questions you may have during your stay.”

“Cozy chalet for unforgettable vacations!”

Beautiful chalet, comfortable and spacious for two families. The location is probably even better in winter for ski holidays!

— Maria C. Jul 2023

“Lovely ski-in/ski-out chalet”

Beautiful house at the foot of the slopes. Pleasant large living room secured for small children. We suggest installing a stair ramp to access the main entrance for elderly people.
