  And in the back, you will still find the old chalet-refuge A magnificent and friendly mountain hut in the Alps, near Chamonix. Nice hiking on the GR5 path, lake or stream fishing

English spoken.

At an altitude of 2000m , the chalet is situated in the heart of the Natural Reserve of Passy, right on the famous GR5 path and on the Pays du Mont-Blanc's tour.

Which means that it is at 2kms as the crow flies or a 5h walk, or 20kms by car from Chamonix, a mythical resort.

It is a perfect stop while trekking between Chamonix, the Plateau d'Assy, it's celebrated church and it's Plaine-Joux ski resort, Sixt, and Vallorcine.

In winter, the refuge is covered by snow... and closed A poster of the old days A poster of the old days A poster of the old days A poster of the old days

Situated on the border of the Fiz Mountains (a splendid limestone chain which shelters the Platé desert), from there you will trek to the Brevent and in the Aiguilles Rouges massif, to the Buet, to the Platé mountain hut, to Servoz, to Sixt, or go fishing in the Pormenaz and Anterne lakes (small jewels in different settings), or in the Diosaz, an impetuous and wild mountain stream.

All these itineraries are well marked. They appear clearly on the IGN map, 3530 ET, Samoens Haut Giffre, TOP 25.

Climbing fans will appreciate the spectacular scenery of the Fiz's limestone cliffs.

In the heart of the Passy Natural Park
The chalet is opened from mid-June till mid-October.

Here are a few walks and treks from the chalet-refuge :

 

The liaison Chamonix-Sixt or Plaine Joux-Sixt across the Anterne Pass, on the famous GR5 path.

From there you can continue to the Fer à Cheval Circus,
or to the Buet by a splendid but more delicate itinerary, the Grosnairon.

 
From the Plateau d'Assy and its magnificent church to the Anterne Pass
