My name is Michaël GUT and I am the new caretaker of the Balme refuge, like my father and my grandfather. The refuge is a family affair.
Nature and me is a great love story. Apart from the refuge keeper, I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.

We are located in the commune of CONTAMINES MONTJOIE (74170, in Haute-Savoie) in the heart of the nature reserve, a privileged and preserved place. What I want is for you to feel at home here by making this refuge a welcoming and warm place to spend good times in the company of nature enthusiasts.

Mountain refuge located at 1706m, at the foot of the Aiguille de la Pennaz (2668m), on the paths of the T.M.B, GR5, Tour du Beaufortain, Tour des Pays du Mont-Blanc.

We benefit from a splendid clear view above the forest.
