The refuge is located at 1877 m in a preserved valley in the heart of the Sixt-fer-à-cheval Nature Reserve. It is a family hike known for its access marked out by waterfalls, for the Dérochoir and its view on the Mont-Blanc and for the Désert de Platé, a geological curiosity.
Our parents created the Refuge in 1981 out of love for nature and the 2024 , and were the guardians of the place for 32 years. We have taken over the family business with the same values of simplicity and authenticity.


The classic access to the refuge is from the Lignon car park. It is easy and particularly suitable for families.
Time: +/- 2 h

From other refuges during the day : Refuges de Platé / Alfred Wills / Moede Anterne / le Châtelet d'Ayères / Gers / Grenairon / les Fonts or during a tour on the Tour des Fiz.
