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.

We benefit from a splendid clear view above the forest.
