LE GRAND BORNAND, Camping l’Escale
Campsite in Alps
Our Experts Say
Selected because this site is situated 935m high amidst
stunning mountain scenery and only 200m from the
pretty Alpine town of Le Grand Bornand with its lively
bars, restaurants and shops. The site is run by the
charming Baur family who create a warm welcoming
atmosphere. The pretty wooden-beamed bar/restaurant
is located in a 200-year old building or ‘alpage’,
decorated in traditional style and offering excellent
Alpine dishes. It is a great area for ski-ing in the winter
and para-gliding in summer.
