The lodge

You will be welcomed at the restaurant which can host up to 42 people. There is also a free room where 10 hikers will be able to eat their own sandwiches, share a drink or simply relax and enjoy the warmth of the stove.


The lodge also has two leisure rooms in which you can watch films about the local flora and fauna, read, or even play new or old-time games with your friends and family.


“The rising sun” leisure room offers a magnificent view on Mount Cenis and Mount Froid, whereas “The sunset” leisure room will allow you to enjoy the sight of “Aussois” village, and summits such as “La Dent Parrachée” or “Le Rateau”.


Our facilities include 4 toilets (1 normal toilet plus 3 dry toilets), among which two can be reached in a wheel chair, 6 sinks, 2 showers with warm water (2euros/shower), one of them being fit for disabled people.


You will be able to use the two drying rooms designed to hang up the clothes after your walking sessions. One of them is open to daily visitors, the other one is reserved for the backpackers who sleep at the lodge.


In order to keep the lodge clean, we provide our guests with slippers (size 4 to 8 ½).


100 yards next to the chalet you will find a lovely mountain lake, together with benches and a standing map of the surrounding mountains.
