With 22 beds this small refuge gives climbers and mountaineers great access to the Grandes Jorasses area and the spectacular peaks of that area.
Accommodation can be booked on a half-board, B&B or bed-only basis; a lunch and snack menu is available during the day, which can be enjoyed on the sunny terrace surrounded by peaks and glaciers. Food is simple but home made and is popular with passing hikers.
Sleeping arrangements are in dormitories of multiple bunk beds; mattresses and bedding are provided but for hygiene reasons you should bring your own sheet or sleeping bag liner.
Bivouacking is allowed here from sunset to sunrise and out of the summer period there is a winter room available for 12 people with mattresses and blankets.
Please contact the refuge directly for this season's prices and opening/closing dates. Discounts are available for CAF members.
