Night in a refuge above Lake Annecy

Have you always dreamed of sleeping in a mountain refuge? We propose you to live this experience in the Bornes range around Annecy. The beginning of the adventure will be a gentle climb in the middle of a pine forest. Then progressively, the scenery and landscapes of mountains are revealed to leave place at the top with a panoramic view. We will be ideally placed to watch the sunset at the time of the aperitif. The night will be in a rustic mountain refuge guarded by Julien and Nathalie. They will prepare a typical Savoyard meal for a good moment of conviviality. The next morning, weather permitting, we will have breakfast on the terrace facing Mont-Blanc before heading back.
