Refuge de Bonavau

Refuge in Champéry
  • The Refuge de Bonaveau is a picturesque mountain refuge, perched on a bucolic alpine plateau between Grand Paradis and the Susanfe Valley.

  • A cosy mountain hideaway, Brigitte's refuge is the first stop en route to some of our most spectacular local sites, from the Dents du Midi and Dents Blanches mountain ranges to the formidable Pas d'Encel passage and the airy Belle Etoile suspension bridge.

    Hardly a 'hut', Bonaveau is a lovely alpine chalet that appears like a mirage when you round the bend in the trail. The panorama is striking, with the chalet and its garden full of flowers standing out before the icy bulk of the Ruan...

    Hardly a 'hut', Bonaveau is a lovely alpine chalet that appears like a mirage when you round the bend in the trail. The panorama is striking, with the chalet and its garden full of flowers standing out before the icy bulk of the Ruan Glacier in the background.

    Visitors seeking the restful simplicity of yesteryear are welcome to stay the night; three snug dormitories equipped with fluffy duvets offer 5, 6 and 7 places. If you're in need of a bite to eat, Bonaveau's kitchen serves traditional Valaisan specialties, cheese dishes, hearty omelettes, homemade soup and delectable fruit pies.
