More of a hut than a refuge, this 8 person accommodation is certainly simple but provides a peaceful respite from every day life.
This quaint and cosy little hut is open all year around but only provides half board between mid-June and early September. Out of season, you are still able to use the refuge for a small fee, however, you should contact the guardian for details.
During the summer season, accommodation can be booked on a half-board, B&B or bed only basis. Bedding is provided but for hygiene reasons you should bring your own sleeping bag liner.
There is no electricity at the hut and the guardian cooks all meals over a gas stove using organic local ingredients. The majority of the dishes are vegetarian, other dietary requirements can be catered for with advance notice.
Bivouacking is allowed from sunset to sunrise. Out of the summer period the winter room (8 places) is unstaffed but equipped with blankets, dishes and gas. Before leaving you need to clean up after yourself, remove any waste/litter and close the door behind you. There is a small fee per night, which is to be left in an honesty box.
Please contact the refuge directly for this season's prices and opening/closing dates.
