Refuge des Mottets

Refuge des Mottets is a charming mountain shelter nestled in the pristine Valley of Glaciers south of Mont Blanc. At an altitude of 1864 meters, it offers a breathtaking view of the Glacier Needle and the Seigne Mountain Pass. This historic alpine chalet, restored in 2010, operates from the beginning of June to the end of September, offering a tranquil escape from modern life.

Accommodations range from collective dormitories to private rooms, with or without private showers. The refuge is accessible by a 20-minute walk from the nearest road and a two-hour hike from the Col de la Seigne, ensuring a serene mountain experience.

With a family-friendly atmosphere, the team at Refuge des Mottets invites guests to enjoy social evenings, mountain mornings, and the tranquility of nature. Services include half-boardfree tap water, and hot showers, with a bar and private parking available. The refuge operates on its own electricity and lacks a telephone network, adding to its rustic charm.
