Rifugio Les Montagnards


Les Montagnards is the result of forty years of life dedicated to the world of the mountains as managers of mountain huts on the most important massifs of the Western Alps: from Mont Blanc to Monte Rosa, Gran Paradiso and finally the Graian Alps. Over the years, we have wanted to combine our high altitude experiences with the reality of the mid-mountain and valley floor to be able to introduce our conception of the mountains to everyone. You will be welcomed into a family environment based on appreciation and respect for the surrounding nature. You will find 5 rooms with bathrooms, 2 of which are accessible, for a maximum of 20 beds, a common room and restaurant served by a lifting platform that reaches all floors. We cater for EVERYONE, from families with children to people with disabilities, offering them the chance to gradually discover the mountains, starting with the simplest things whilst focusing on the concept of safety and prevention in the mountains. A year-round base for anyone wishing to immerse themselves in the pristine nature of Balme in search of sport and nature, but also culture and history. To provide these experiences also for people with disabilities, we are equipped with a Joëlette, so they can leave their conventional means of transport behind and explore the nature and surrounding areas along itineraries of varying degrees of difficulty. The kitchen will be able to offer you traditional dishes and more, also retrieving interesting and captivating recipes from other regions, using seasonal and locally sourced products as much as possible. We are convinced that the mountains are for everyone, without any distinction, as long as the activities offered are in keeping with sustainability, where tlimits are defined by the human body and spirit.
