Visitor Reviews of Le Grand Bornand

Johng from United Kingdom writes:

Less than a week before we head to Le Grand Bornand again. We are taking our motorhome to the campsite; brilliant place with pool and helpful staff. Ski lifts have small queues, pistes are bashed, great environment for us and our 2, under 10, children. This place is a real gem; we may go back again at half-term if we enjoy a post Christmas ski.
