Just to say what a fabulous week we had at Grand Bornand. The accommodation was excellent, so well equipped. Great atmosphere in the village, really friendly & welcoming people around in the ski shop, mountain bars etc. Slightly worried at first as raining at the lower altitude & real spring snow but it snowed at night & later in the week & we had great powder to enjoy. Thanks to you all.
Neige & Roc Hotel was excellent.
The food and friendly service at La Maison à Colonnes are great, but book early as it is very popular.
The spa area at Kalinda was lovely - a choice of divine smelling steam rooms and saunas.
It is easy to ski/take ski lifts across to Val d'sere so it is definitely worth getting a ski pass for etc who area (not just Tignes).
The cafe at the bottom of the Col Madeleine run is the best for food/seating and views of the ski area.
The supermarket on site is incredibly well stocked and reasonable for the quality and convenience.
Easy access to La Rosiere from Les Eucherets with a lovely walkway. Some nice bars and restaurants in both areas. The Grange in Les Eucherets was our favourite restaurant. Good quality food and friendly service with a good menu.
The main restaurant at the top of the gondola Vieux Moulin was excellent - and another great find was the the restaurant at the junction of Arcelles and Solert- it had wonderful views from its suntrap deck. Recommend heading into Lanslebourg for shopping, especially the fantastic butchers.
Best mountain restaurants - Chalet D'Clair, Morillon and La Pente a Jules, Flaine. Sledges can be borrowed from Chalets de Jouvence reception along with fondue sets etc.
If skiing with young children use the hired lockers near top of the Grand Massif Express.
Bowling was a good evening out with reasonably priced beer.
La Rosière is a perfect resort for a family holiday.
Good resort to take friends and family who are new to skiing.
Hotel St Charles apartments were fabulous and very clean!
Bar Le Graal was great for apres ski, either inside or outside in the sunshine.
Right next to the slopes, ski hire shop, supermarket. Excellent location.
Check out the Ten Pin Bowling in the nearby village for great food for the family. Great resort for families & beginner/intermediates.
Petit Oignons - best restaurant all round!
Great pool. Apartment spacious and comfortable. Good facilities.
We had a great evening watching a well supported local ice hockey game.
L'a-Coeur, L'Apres (pizzas) and Les Brevettes (can't book, cash only, amazing food) were our favourite restaurants.
We love L'Arcelle restaurant in Lanslevillard and La Vieille Poste in Lanslebourg. There are plenty of local boulangeries, the street market every Wednesday, as well as the well stocked and convenient supermarket.
A typically French ski resort, friendly welcoming locals.
The Lanchette lift next to the Grange aux Fees saves a lot of hard work getting on to the pistes.
The Off Shore Restaurant on the La Thuile slopes is a cool, quirky little restaurant with great music. Stopped there for cappucino and croissants every morning!
McKinleys restaurant was very reasonably priced with good food and a nice family atmosphere.
The Sherpa shop, Pizza du Bois and Fromagerie cheese shop on main street were excellent. We were 3 families in separate apartments and used the free hire service to have a fondue night and a raclette night, which the children enjoyed.
If you walk up to the old town, there's an Italian pizzeria; amazing food, amazing prices, amazing service.
Very good family resort with very quiet apres ski.
Would highly recommend lessons with ESF ski school. Staff very friendly, helpful and full of local knowledge.
