History of the Building: The Auberge de Bionnassay was originally built as a farm at the end of the 18th century. It was converted into a restaurant and guest house in 1968 when the dormitory was created. A considerable improvement was made to the guesthouse in 1995 when 5 bedrooms were added.
Location: The Auberge is located 1320 metres above sea level at the foot of Bionnassay glacier. Bionnassay is an excellent location for embarking on hikes of varying degrees of difficulty: GR5, TMB, Tour des Pays du Mont-Blanc, tour du Vorassay, Col du Tricot, Plan Glacier, the summit of Prarion and Bellevue. It's also a great location for climbing Mont Blanc on the Saint Gervais side.
