About the property

The comfort of a recent renovation (in 2009) with all the charm of the traditional Grand Bornand chalet(built in 1737), and a magnificent decoration give to "La Ruche" an extremely warm character.

Traditionnaly used by the owners, it benefits from all the characteristics destinated to our own comfort and not the ones only for rental (high range equipment, games, numerous DVDs, cartoons, books, Nespresso coffee machine, Bose Ipod Soundock etc...).

Located close to the great Grand Bornand slopes (access in 2 minutes with the free "skibus" shuttle), it will make you appreciate after ski as much as ski itself, especially around a nice large chimney fire.

South west orientation to take full adavantage of the balconies and of the view on the slopes and the Aravis.

It is ideally organised for 2 or 3 families with independent playroom and TV room from the salon and dining room.

It is also great in the summer with exceptional green moutain environment and lots of activities.

Superbe chalet de vacances

  • 4 of 5

9 locataires enchantés de ce séjour d'une semaine à La Ruche. Ce chalet est très confortable. Tout y est pour passer un agréable séjour. emplacement, accès pistes, transports, ballades. Un petit éclairage additionnel au niveau de la table à dîner serait toutefois bienvenu.

Nous espérons y revenir et le recommandons chaleureusement

Beaucoup de charme et très confortable

  • 5 of 5

Ce chalet situé à l'entrée du Chinaillon est très facile d'accès. Le charme de l'ancien, la décoration ainsi que la modernité des équipements en font un endroit très agréable. Nous y avons déjà passé deux séjours avec nos amis, petits et grands sont ravis !

La proximité du ski bus est appréciable.

Magnifique chalet idéal pour grande tribu!

  • 5 of 5

Le chalet très fonctionnel , confortable et joliment décoré dispose de plusieurs espaces de vie : l étage pour les parents et le rdc que les enfants s approprient très facilement! Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour avec nos amis et ribambelle d enfants. Le skibus est très proche et les 3 lignes du grand Bornand / chinaillon desservent l arrêt. Nous adorons cette station de ski qui propose de nombreuses activités aussi bien l hiver que l été !
