A lovely resort, not huge but big enough and you can get a lift pass to cover La Clusaz and the rest of the Aravis if you want. Unpretentious, good skiing and also not over-priced. Not only is Le Grand Bornand village itself a nice place to stay (can recommend the Hotel Croix St. Maurice), but you can stay up the mountain in Le Chinaillon; even Annecy, a beautiful city with lots of everything is only 40 mins. drive away, If you want a European resort away from all the Brits, and like the idea of a very 'French' resort, this is it. Very picturesque, good value, not the wildest at night, compact ski area and very unpretentious. Your destination is Le Grand Bornand.
