Travelling with small children is up there as one of the most stressful prospects for parents, but this needn’t be the case! Flying to a nearby destination such as Geneva is a relatively short journey, especially given the complete change of scenery! |
When you’ve just gotten off a flight, the last thing you want to do then is make a long journey to your resort. Luckily, with Shuttle Direct, ski transfers from Geneva are short and efficient, making resorts such as Le Grand Bornand the ideal family holiday destination.
On the Slopes
Le Grand Bornand sits just 52km away from Geneva. The pretty alpine town is very family friendly and appeals to all age categories and abilities.
For parents with children who are just beginning to learn to ski, there are ski schools that your little ones can be enrolled in so that you can head off and enjoy the more advanced slopes, then pick up the children later in the day. The teachers are professional and properly trained, so your little ones will be flying down the slopes in no time at all!
With ski nurseries and equipment for rent at low prices, Le Grand Bornand is a brilliant resort to teach children to ski, whilst still enjoying the chance to ski yourself. The nursery slopes in the resort also mean that beginners can practice in safe environments where there are unlikely to be advanced skiers or snowboarders who might cause accidents.
It is not just beginners who might head to Le Grand Bornand, however, as the resort has intermediate and advanced slopes higher up the mountain range.
Off the Slopes
Another great aspect of Le Grand Bornand is the ‘Espace P’tits Montagnards’ – The Little Mountaineers area. This is a specially designed space for families and children to enjoy the resort in a safe environment. Your children are very unlikely to be bored on this holiday!
As this is a family friendly resort, the prices are not astronomical. Hotels with large family rooms and babysitting services are common in the area. Restaurants and snack bars are generally very reasonably priced, with child friendly menus and food options. This means Le Grand Bornand is a very affordable family skiing holiday resort.
During school holidays, there are even more activities going on because popularity for families skiing in the area increases. There are lots of trips and new activities to try, such as guided tours and trips to the Grand-Bo snow park.
