and the smaller Le Grand Bornand Chinaillon, both villages have a selection of bars and restaurants. However, Chinaillon is better placed for accessing the ski area with a selection of pistes leading all the way back to the village for the end of the day.
Both villages have retained their traditional character with some chalets dating back 300 years. This is also the home of Reblochon cheese which must be tried during your holiday. Le Grand Bornand local ski area encompasses 90km of pistes

which takes in a further 130km of pistes
