A refuge mainly used for those wishing to ascent Mont Buet. The hut is open all year around, however, it is only staffed during the summer period from early June to late September.
During the summer months you will need to reserve your place in advance, either by using the website link or calling the refuge directly. The hut can accommodate up to 85 people during the open period and 10 people during the unstaffed months from October to May.
Sleeping arrangements are in dormitories; duvets and pillows are provided but for hygiene reasons you are obliged to use a sheet or sleeping bag liner. If you do not have your own, the refuge has a limited number that you can rent for a small fee. Hot showers are also available for an extra few euros.
Accommodation can be booked on a half-board, B&B or bed-only basis. The refuge serves lunch and snacks throughout the day to lodgers and day visitors. Picnics can be provided on request. Food is simple local cuisine such as omelette, salad, fondue, croute, tartiflette, etc.
Please contact the refuge directly for this season's prices and opening/closing dates.
