The recipe for a successful hike needs no more than a stopover at the Petits Lacs Café above Col des Mosses. Accessible for a family walk or before attempting the climb up to Pic Chaussy, the café offers an enchanting setting in the heart of the mountains.
Halfway between the resort of Les Mosses and the summit of Pic Chaussy, this small alp transformed into a refreshment bar welcomes all visiting hikers. From the terrace not far from the stream, it is not uncommon to observe ibexes perched on the mountainside or to hear marmots whistle. Cheese dishes and snacks enchant the stomachs before continuing on the hiking trails.
The Petits Lacs Café also offers an unusual sleepover for a family night out. All you need to do is to spread out a bale of straw and there you have one of the most comfortable beds ever – at least for one night only. And for another overnight with a difference, why not try sleeping in the imperial yurt !
