I have read that the French Alps seduces travelers with its breathtaking views, idyllic village’s, gastronomic feasts and world class mountain activities. The Lake Annecy resorts did not disappoint. Surrounded by the majestic Aravis mountain range these resorts combine authentic traditional villages with chic chalets and refined hotels. The multi-lingual resort staff and mountain guides offer unsurpassed service with a welcoming smile. The abundance of unique outdoor activities in the valley includes the world’s first bungee jump off a ski ramp, sledge riding (sledding) and the Biathlon, a winter Olympic sport. Le Grand Bornand is home to famed Olympian Sylvie Becaert .
