When you arrive at the Pierre du Carre refuge while walking through the mountain pastures of Le Collet, you are immediately surprised by the welcome of Guylain and Patricia, two mountain lovers who guard the refuge from mid-June to mid-September. The good scent of the meal prepared with local produce instantly hits us. A lot of people meet there: families going up from Le Collet resort for a first night in the refuge, hikers who take the new GR 738 or who go around Allevard or the trailers of the Echappée Belle. You will immediately notice those who are used to spending nights in a refuge compared to those who spend their first night in a refuge: they discuss itineraries with the wardens, talk about their day and know that here you go to bed early.
Outside these periods the refuge is accessible by reservation on 0476975024.
