Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
The pasture Chapy is placed at the beginning of the Val Ferret, in a lovely, sunny, secluded but easily accessible, along the path that goes back to Rifugio Pavillon and the Botanical Garden Saussurea and continuing to rise, and the Rifugio Torino Punta Helbronner, on the summit of the Mont Blanc range. You can easily reach the Rifugio Pavillon and Punta Helbronner cable car, summer and winter, and from here you can go down to Chamonix by cable car or ski in the winter, along the Mer de Glace.
The pasture is surrounded by meadows where cows graze in the summer of the shepherds who daily prepare fresh butter and fontina to mature. Deer, chamois, deer, foxes ... animate the forest and, especially in the fall and spring, they approach the hut.
In winter the hut is reached only by a short walk on foot, with snowshoes or skis; or with a thrilling ride on skis or snowboard directly from Punta Helbronner (m. 3462) along the Toula glacier, first between the seracs and then along the wide slopes leading to the Pavillon (m. 2173), and from here, through the thick fir forest, you reach the last plains around the lodge, where you expect a polenta and a mulled wine.
