Welcome to La Petite Buche
Your own little piece of Heaven. La Petite Buche is a very comfortable well equipped chalet in the alps, 5 minutes walk from the centre of this unspoilt Alpine market village, Le Grand Bornand.
At approximately 1000 metres rising to 2,700 it is a real jewel in the French Alps with the river Borne and real history coursing through its veins. Life does not die with the end of the ski season, like so many ugly purpose built resorts.
In the winter, we offer bed and breakfast accommodation, including evening meal, often cooked on the open wood burning fire, we provide the wine or beer. We are both chefs at Kaaren's in Elounda Crete, during the summer, so you will be well looked after. We can help with lift passes, ski hire, ski lessons or just guide you around the mountain, showing you the wonderful views that surround you at every turn.
We offer long weekend breaks, weeks day breaks, really whatever fits for you, so you can take advantage of the lower flight prices during the week. We just want to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
The skiing is wonderfully varied, with plenty of intermediate and beginners slopes as well as some hairy drops for the more experienced or semi-suicidal, from the top of Le Lachat. The village boasts 6 members of the national ski team. Together with its neighbour La Clusaz, this provides some 200km of pistes. Ski buses link the two villages.
