The adaptation to the 2020 rules results in a decrease in the capacity of the refuge from 55 places to 33 this year and in the obligation for hikers to come with their personal sleeping bag.
Everything has been organized on site to ensure the separation between groups or families in the dormitories and the dining hall by fairly simple rules.
Catering during the day is made easier by being on the outdoor terrace.
The reservation which was strongly advised becomes compulsory.
It is possible to bivouac and to reserve your dinner and breakfast.
This eco-friendly alpine chalet offers a simple welcome for 2 to 10 people. Duvets and pillows are provided. Facilities include a shower, three toilets and wash-basins. Bring your own sheet sleeping bag, or hire one of ours.
The team has created a mountain ambiance with typical dishes and a choice of organic wines.
During the day we offer baked ham and cheese, omelettes, selection of cold meats, home-made bilberry tart and drinks.
Dinner : (Following resupply) : home-made soup, roti-polenta or fondue, home-made dessert.
