The recipe for a successful hike needs no more than a stopover at the Petits Lacs Café above Col des Mosses. Easily 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.
At the foot of Pic Chaussy, charismatic shepherd « Grillon » hosts all visiting hikers. Heart and soul of the café, this seasoned traveller and accomplished musician installed his grand piano in the alpine chalet, an incongruous sight indeed ! Cheese dishes, rösti and speciality macaroni are some of the delightful dishes on the menu.
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 !
