Chalet Ibusta ...
There's a cosy home-from-home feel to this lovely chalet, in the heart of Le Grand Bornand. Built in 2014, it combines a sleek contemporary interior with antique furniture, vintage rugs and unique artwork to create an atmosphere where you'll feel immediately at ease.
Chalet Ibusta is in a great location too, with the ski bus, slopes, ice rink and village facilities just a short walk away. If you'd prefer not to use your car, just park it up in the garage and forget about it.
The chalet has plenty of room for ten guests in four charming bedrooms, and with a sauna, games room and outdoor hot tub, we think it has everything you need for a hassle-free mountain holiday.
About the property ...
Accommodation at Chalet Ibusta is set over three floors. On the lower ground floor, you'll find the garage with a boot warmer and plenty of room to leave your bikes or skis at the end of a day in the mountains. From here, you could head to the sauna, or perhaps the hot tub on the terrace. There's also a large workout area with an exercise bike, a shower and a useful laundry room.
The main living area on the next floor is arranged around a large central fireplace. The cosy living area has chairs and a large sofa, as well as a piano, perhaps for musical evenings. The well-equipped kitchen makes cooking a pleasure, and there's room around the dining table to enjoy a meal together.
In good weather, step out on to the spacious terrace where you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink, soak in the hot tub, or cook up a feast on the barbecue.
The first of the bedrooms is on the ground floor - a double room with an en suite shower room. There's also a separate WC. There are three more bedrooms upstairs, two of which are double rooms with plenty of storage. The third room has a double bed with a mezzanine floor above it, reached by a ladder. At the top there are two single beds, suitable for children. These bedrooms share a shower room with two hand basins, and a separate WC.
There's a great TV room on the top floor landing, as well as a games room with table football and a desk area for two, handy as a workspace or for playing computer games.
About the area ...
When you stay at Chalet Ibusta, you're less than 1km from the pistes and just a short walk from the ski bus stop.
The bus, which also serves La Clusaz, runs every 15 minutes between Chinaillon and Le Grand Bornand, and is free to use with your Aravis ski pass. This covers more than 220km of pristine pistes, in the resorts of Le Grand Bornand, La Clusaz and Manigod, so there's plenty of challenge for skiers and boarders of all abilities. There are also plenty of cross-country trails.
Non-skiers won't be bored either - try hiking or snowshoeing, paragliding, hot-air ballooning, ice-skating or ice-climbing. Le Grand Bornand boasts the Famille Plus mark, ensuring that there is always plenty of entertainment and activities for even the youngest visitors.
In the summer, a network of walking and biking trails criss-cross the slopes, and you can pick up a route map for either at the tourist office. Le Grand Bornand has a beautiful nine-hole golf course with a great driving range, and on those very hot days, why not head for the fantastic swimming pool complex, with a restaurant and grassy areas for picnics.
If you’re looking for something a little more challenging, there’s a climbing school, via ferrata routes, a tree-top adventure park, canyoning, white-water rafting and paragliding all nearby.
August sees the international children’s festival - Au Bonheur des Mômes - in Le Grand Bornand, a week of magic shows, circus acts, theatre, games and workshops, with a grand firework finale. It’s always hugely popular, so make sure you book early to guarantee a holiday you’ll never forget!
If you're looking for a spacious chalet close to the lifts, village shops and restaurants, Chalet Ibusta could be a great option for you. If you need a little time to make up your mind, you can use our no-obligation 24-hour hold option. But don't leave it too long, this popular chalet is sure to get booked up fast.

Why Le Grand Bornand?
Le Grand Bornand is an idyllic Alpine village which happens to be surrounded by some great skiing and in summer, a superb mountain playground.
There are none of the huge hotel complexes you'll find in other ski resorts – just a friendly welcome all year round.
Families are particularly welcome, with a great programme of activities to keep kids of all ages busy and happy.

The OVO Network Review
“A home from home in a great village location”
Chalet Ibusta is a four-bedroom chalet with three bathrooms (including the shower room on the lower ground floor), as well as a sauna, hot tub and games room.
Its great location opposite the ski bus stop and just a short walk from the centre of the village makes it ideal for a group who don't want to have to rely on the car, or perhaps those with older children who want to enjoy a bit of independence. You'll love being able to pop to the bakery for fresh bread in the morning, or perhaps wander in to the village in the evening for a drink and a meal.
The chalet is set back from the road, but as you'd expect from such a central location, there is some road noise at rush hour.
There's always something going on in Le Grand Bornand for visitors, and especially for children. In the summer they get their own festival - Au Bonheur des Mômes - with a packed programme of shows, workshops and games, but they won't be short of entertainment what ever time you visit.
Chalet Ibusta combines modern decor with antique furniture, as well as rugs, throws and cushions to create a homely atmosphere where it's easy to relax. And with a cosy seating area on the ground floor as well as a TV and games room on the first floor, there's plenty of room for everyone to find their own space.

From the owner
The chalet was built on a family land.
We raised our 3 children in this idyllic setting, close to the village, facing the sunny Aravis mountains.
We are now committed to providing you a wonderful stay in our beautiful chalet!
Enjoy a car-free vacation, one step away to great skiing, and cross-country skiing with all the amenities of the Grand Bornand village close by.
We wish you a wonderful stay!

“Thank you for this great stay in Grand Bornand”
The chalet is very welcoming, architecturally well designed and well equipped. The bedding is perfect, the jacuzzi spacious, the sauna pleasant. Beautiful bathrooms and careful decoration where many details make us forget that we are in a rented chalet.

“A good stay”
A wonderful chalet, very welcoming, well equipped and well located.

“Breathtaking view of the mountains from the Jacuzzi!”
Chalet right next to the slopes and the village. Warm home decor. Breathtaking view of the mountains from the Jacuzzi. We had a great stay!
— Julien B. Mar 2022
“It has been the best vacation home we have ever stayed in!”
A really beautiful chalet in an even more beautiful environment. It has been the best vacation home we have ever stayed in. We regretted a lot that we only had one week. From the decoration to the set-up of the rooms and the cleanliness, everything was just perfect! We immediately felt at home. There was plenty of space inside and outside for the family to hang out, it was perfect for us as a family of 5. The chalet is very nicely decorated and is very well equipped with TV, Wi-Fi and fusball-table. The outdoor jacuzzi, and the large garden kept the kids happy. Definitely a highly recommendable vacation house. We loved it!
