The Tour du Mont Blanc is a unique trek of approximately 200km around Mont Blanc that can be completed in between 7 and 10 days passing through Italy, Switzerland and France.

Hikers, climbers and mountaineers will greatly appreciate stop overs offered by refuges and gites along the Tour du Mont Blanc.

Facing the Mont-Blanc mountain range and close to the lakes, the refuge offers single beds in dormitories located in two buildings. They are equipped with a sheet, pillow and duvet. Only the sheet sleeping bag is not supplied and is obligatory.
Depending on the technical means available a "high altitude" shower is possible.
For lunch we offer a menu with a range of traditional dishes such as the "croûte et le gratin" (crusty cheese on toast), a selection of omelettes, salads, delicatessen meats, cheese and a delicious home-made blueberry tart for dessert.

Our water storage facilities are insufficient for us to allow you to wash your clothes or dishes or have access to sanitary facilities. Cleanliness is important, take your rubbish back down to the valley.
Keep a careful eye on the weather: the refuge doesn't have a heated room and there is nowhere for you to be able to cook or to take shelter.
