According to Law no. 78-17, dated January 6th 1978 of the French personal data act (CNIL), concerning information technology, files and personal liberty (article 36), the holder of the right of access may demand that any information that is inexact, missing or out-of-date information or whose collection, use, communication or storage is forbidden concerning him/herself be rectified, completed, clarified, updated or deleted. To exercise this right, please use the above form.
We invite you to discover this magnificent valley, the birthplace of the Reblochon cheese, through which the Borne river flows between the gentle alpine slopes of the Lachat mountain, forests and the steeper rocky outcrops at the foot of the Aravis range.
You can walk through the hamlets with their hundred year old chalets, roofed with wooden shingles, their chapels and the many farms, evidence of thriving agriculture.
All year round. Inquire about road conditions in winter.

The southern side of the Col de la Colombière, from the Grand-Bornand, is much less formidable than the climb from Cluses. Nevertheless, the last four kilometres above Chinaillon are very steep.

A short but very steep climb above the pretty village-resort of Le Grand-Bornand, famous for its traditional chalets and “onion-bulb” steeple.

Those who love “middle of nowhere” roads with views across spectacular mountains, in this case the Aravis, will adore this very difficult climb. Café at the top.
