Refuge des Tindérêts

Chalet des sources
Route du Mont

In the heart of the authentic Abondance valley and its rich mountain heritage, join in one hour's walk a beautiful refuge located in a natural site. At 1500 m altitude at the foot of Mount Grange, it allows you to reach Lake Tavaneuse.

During the fondue evenings, you will go up to the snowshoe refuge, and will be rewarded for your efforts with a real Savoyard fondue by the fire. After the traditional grolle, it is in the moonlight that will take place the descent. An unforgettable moment.

In summer, you will discover the Alpine flora through the Discovery Trail. This marked route will allow you to observe many typical species, such as the martagon lily, a delicate liliaceae on the list of protected species.

And because a refuge is, first and foremost, a stage on the road of the walker, you only have to follow the path to arrive at the lake of Tavaneuse, at the foot of the mount Grange (2432m) or even to Prétairié .

Each building is equipped with a kitchenette with two gas, dishes, bowls and allows those who wish to be autonomous.

The large building includes the kitchen, a large dining room, dancing and singing, and a dormitory.

The sheepfold has 13 places, it is a haven of peace, easy to heat in winter thanks to its wood stove.

The small cottage, away from the main building, can accommodate up to 10 people. It is ideal for small groups or large families.
