Anne Debeaune

Keeper of the Drayères Refuge

Welcome to the Refuge des Drayères!

The guards Anne & Boris, Ski Instructors and High Mountain Guide, welcome you.

The Drayères refuge, an ideal base camp (altitude: 2180m) is located at the intersection of three important routes: to the south the Clarée valley, to the northwest the Rochilles (place of convergence of the Guisane valleys by the col de la Ponsonnière, de Valloire and de Valmeinier) and to the east the path coming from Thabor and the Étroite valley. This refuge is the essential place for hikers on the Tour des Cerces & the Tour du Thabor.

A warm and friendly atmosphere

The refuge team welcomes you for an overnight stay, a stay, a meal or a snack. Warm up by the stove after your mountain outing and enjoy a moment of sharing or relaxation in the living room. A library and board games await you there. In the dining room, bright and spacious, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the valley floor. In each dormitory there are cozy duvets: remember to bring your house sheet or your “meat bag”. Also, you will find hot showers, a space to dry your shoes.

Kitchen side

We offer you simple & healthy, homemade cuisine! Most of the products we use come from organic or local farming. If you wish, we prepare snacks for your hikes the next day. All you have to do is let us know when you arrive at the shelter. All day long, we serve à la carte and offer dining on the terrace in the sun or inside by the stove. In the evening, a common meal is served in the dining room. For people with a special diet, we will adapt as best as possible.

Practical information

Open seven months a year, you can admire the complete palette of colors on the surrounding peaks from the main of Crépin, the Grande Manche and the Dent du Diable to the ridge separating us from Lac Long des Muandes, then to the north. west of the Aiguille Noire which sometimes plastered with snow would only beg to change its name.

The refuge belongs to the FFCAM. We can accommodate 64 people in dormitories of 4, 6 and 8 places. When possible, we reserve a dormitory for the same group. Excluding security, you have the dining room and 4 dormitories for 32 people (with blankets). Please leave the shelter clean and settle your night in the trunk inside the shelter. To facilitate our organization and the smooth running of the refuge, we are counting on you to reserve your half-board on online reservation or by telephone during the seasons on +33 (0)4 92 21 36 01
