Backing onto the slopes of the Criou, facing the Tuet and the crests of the Dents d'Oddaz, the refuge can be the goal of a day hike to savor one of the regional specialties on the terrace, a veritable balcony, overlooking the valleys of Giffre and the Arve, or a hike over two or more days, spending the night in a dormitory or in a room.
Excluding guarding, the refuge has a room permanently open in winter.
