    In the heart of the authentic Abondance valley, join in one hour’s walk a beautiful refuge, located at 1500 m altitude at the foot of Mount Grange. It proposes you the accomodation and small restauration.

    And because a refuge is, first and foremost, a stage on the road of the walker, you only have to follow the path to arrive at the lake of Tavaneuse, at the foot of the mount Grange (2432m) or even to Prétairié .

    Each building is equipped with a kitchenette with two gas, dishes, bowls and allows those who wish to be autonomous.

    The large building includes the kitchen, a large dining room and a dormitory of 18 persons.

    The sheepfold has 13 places, it is a haven of peace, easy to heat in winter thanks to its wood stove.

    Possibility to sleep in half-board, breakfast+night or in free management.
