We generate our own electricity (hydro electric and solar panels). We therefore have a limited amount of electricity available. That's why we ask our clients to be careful with their use of electrical equipment. Mobile phones and batteries can be charged in moderation. Sorry ladies, hairdryers aren't welcome here!

Bivouac area 15 minutes from the chalet. Free access.
