Hut Fay

Le refuge du Fay et sa terrasse

We have owned and run the familial refuge of La Fay for 43 years ! In front of the glacier of la Girose, Le Râteau and La Meije, you will taste our specialities "Farcis de l'Oisans and "Crozets": some guests come from miles to enjoy them.

Spécial COVID-19

A few animals keep us company : chikens, goats, horses...

From Mizoen – Les Aymes, the path follows the path GR50-54 (Tour du Dauphiné) that leads up to the refuge des Clots (it is also possible to make a detour via the discovery path): take a break and admire the huge Cascade de La Pisse and the view!
Then continue the climb, quite steep, up to the plateau where you reach the refuge du Fay, which you’ll see on your left in a bend of the track. Le Plateau itself is a little piece of heaven, with a wide variety of alpine flowers during
June and July, numerous colonies of marmots near the refuge, grasshoppers, butterflies, dragonflies to the lakes, and also larks, the golden eagle and around sixty vultures recently arrived from the South. Emparis has always been a renowned pasture: the path will then be a good excuse to encounter the shepherds, their dogs and thousands of sheep. The departure is also possible from Besse-en-Oisans or Le Chazelet, in both cases following the path GR54. Mountain bikers may also reach the hut by the sheperds’ road (about 15km), which can also be taken by suitable vehicles with dry and clear weather.
