Refuges and stopover gîtes
If you want to recharge your batteries in the middle of nature and go hiking to discover the grandiose landscapes of the mountains of the Nice Côte d'Azur metropolitan area, enjoy a unique experience of immersion in the heart of preserved nature.
- Refuges :
For an overnight stay during a timeless nature holiday or from refuge to refuge for itinerant hikes, these high-altitude accommodations, located in isolated places, are accessible mainly by footpaths.
In addition to accommodation, the refuge, whether guarded or not, can offer various services in terms of equipment, catering and reservations, but is always based on the principle of communal living.
To prepare for a night in a refuge, you must first of all make sure that it is available and know its rules of operation.
- Stopover gîte and/or holiday gîte:
Unlike the rural gîte, which is a furnished accommodation with a private vocation, stopover gîtes and holiday gîtes have a collective dimension. In this context, catering services or the provision of a self-catering kitchen is possible.
These gîtes are often accessible by a road open to the public.
