Visitor comments

"A good day the view is unbeatable. You can see most of the Chamonix valley and most of the peaks including Mont Blanc. We had very good service and very tasy food. A favourite place in the alpes. Maybe a bit overpiced, but afterall it is 1000m up in the alps from Chamonix." - Trip Advisior
