the mountain hut


The Building

The Mountain Hut “Champillon-Adolphe Letey” was opened on July 3rd 2005 and was named after the mayor of Doues municipality, mr. Adolphe Letey, in charge from 1951 to 1990, a strong believer in tourism development of this area. The Hut is located at 2465 metres, above the “Tza di Champillon”, where the local practice of cattle transhumance is still flourishing. The views from there, expecially of  Ollomont valley and Lower Valpelline, are stunning.

If you park your car at “Plan Detruit”, at 2000 metres, after a short walk you can easily reach the Hut, walking on a nice path surrounded by woods and mountains. The walk is enjoyable and suitable for every kind of hiker (more or less experienced, but also families and kids).

Mountain Hut Champillon- Adolphe Letey is open from May till October 31st 2017.
