Le Petit Bornand - 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

Situated in the Vallee de Borne 40km away from Geneva airport, the nearest resorts to the Manoir de Leschaux are the Aravis resorts (Grand Bornand 13km, La Clusaz 15km) Chamonix is 64km away, the Mont Blanc tunnel 69km away, les Gets on the Portes de Soleil is just 40km away, Megeve is 50km away.

All resorts can be reached via main roads or motorways.

In the summer the gardens and amenities at the Manoir are superb; there’s a heated swimming pool (17m x 5m), an outdoor jacuzzi, an enclosed all weather surface space big enough for 5 a side football/basketball/volleyball or tennis, a petanque court, a table tennis table and swing set.

The 5000m2 garden runs parallel to the road up the valley, which can get busy in winter as skiers head up to and return from the ski stations above.

The property is comprised of two buildings behind electronic gates - the houses and grounds are completely enclosed. The architecture, furniture and decoration of this property is just stunning, please see the photos, 360s and video to judge for yourself.

The gate house overlooks the gardens, pool, jacuzzi and terrace linking the two properties together, and consists of a gym, sauna, changing rooms, a summer kitchen, an office space and a lounge space with fireplace.

There are 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms in the four-storey manor house itself, as well as a home cinema, a games room with pool table and arcade games, and high quality sound systems throughout the principal areas. There is ample room to securely store kit too.

If you are interested in local history, and especially WWII, the Manor de Leschaux is just a five-minute drive from the road up to Le Plateau des Glières, an important historical site, which is now a place for calm peaceful reflection among the high mountain pastures.

There are shops, supermarkets, restaurants, chemists, petrol stations, Doctor’s surgeries etc in both directions at Entremont and St Jean de Sixt or Bonneville and St Pierre en Faucigny.

There is also plenty of space to park between the two buildings.

“When Le Manoir de Leschaux came on the market, we snapped it up without hesitation.”

“We have lived in Petit Bornand for over 20 years. Geneva is a very convenient 40-minute drive away.

We lived in a typical Savoyard chalet on the other side of the valley, which was great fun but we only had one loo between 16 people! We wanted to build a swimming pool in the chalet grounds, but we were refused permission. When Le Manoir de Leschaux came on the market, we snapped it up without hesitation.

It came with an 18-metre pool and now we have eight loos!

The house was originally owned by the then Mayor who had bought it for his son, an Olympic skier and his family. It's the only house in the village that has a huge pool.

The house was built by a Parisian wine merchant in the 1920s, using the rocks from falling boulders from the Leschaux mountains above. It is known by the locals as 'The Chateau', I guess because it's the largest house in the village.

We were impressed by the decadence of the property and were inspired to enhance it further - making it 'Urban Chic' in the Alps.

The interiors are oak parquet and white marble floors. There are Bisazza tiles in all the bathrooms, two saunas and a hot tub, a Boffi kitchen and lots of modern furniture coupled with super sound systems, flat screen TVs and a home cinema. Downstairs we shoot pool.

There's even a TV in one of the bathrooms!

It's been our winter residence for more than eight years now. With 12 brothers and sisters between us it's the perfect place for large and extended families.

Although the house is not on the ski slopes, it's only a 15-minute drive to the nearest ski domaines in Grand Bornand and La Clusaz. What's more if you want variety, you can get to a plethora of ski areas in less than an hour.

The Grand Massif, Megeve, Portes du Soleil and Chamonix are all easy reachable for a day's skiing and after Chamonix why not go for a pizza in Italy another 15 mins to Courmayeur, on the Italian side of Mont Blanc. Our kids loved to tell their school friends they'd been to Italy just for a pizza!

In the summer there is of course the huge pool, all the land around with landscaped gardens, a mini tennis court, basketball, five-a-side football and volleyball and also a place for Boules. Le plateau des Glières, is just a 15-minute drive away.

Lake Annecy and its medieval town is just 40 minutes away. You can drive to the gorgeous village of Yvoire in 40 minutes and from there, you can cross Lake Leman (Geneva) by ferry, 10 mins to Switzerland.

We hope and think you will love it."

This is the best rental I have stayed in. Better than the pictures. Truly idyllic setting, with a beautiful cinema room, sauna, and workout room. It is just perfect.
