The Refuge of Solalex is located in the heart of a charming mountain pasture just a few miles from the villages of Gryon and Villars. It offers terroir dishes in a typical mountain setting with a cordial atmosphere and a fireplace.
Martin and his staff offer several cheese dishes at the Refuge de Solalex. Don't miss the famous raclette cooked over the wood fire, the Vacherin Mont-d’or AOP cooked in the oven or the tomato fondue. The menu card includes home-made soups, smoked and cured meats, delicacies from the woods, salads and, in the autumn, game specialties. In sunny weather, the pretty terrace offers a beautiful view.
The refuge can be accessed on foot in less than an hour from Cergnement or via Alpe des Chaux. In winter, it can be accessed on foot, with snowshoes or cross-country skis. In summer, you can drive up or take a TPC bus from Villars-Solalex. To make the most of this chalet atmosphere in its beautiful nature setting , you can spend the night in a room or dormitory
