Unlike the yurts in our village and La Clairière shelter, that are leased exclusively to groups, renting the shelter is community based. You book one or more places and others may join you, depending on the capacity of the refuge. During the day, hikers can also stop by for a break between 11am and 3pm.

Please note that all visitors must stop before their stay at main welcome point (Roquemont) to complete the final details of booking and get their right of access for activities.
