We chose the alternative TMB route for the first day and decided to end it earlier than Les Contamines, and Refuge de Miage seemed a very nice option - after a grueling descent from Col de Tricot. We were put in quite a large dormitory - around 12 people on two bunk beds, but the sleep was trouble free. On... More

I stayed here last summer while hiking the tour du Mont Blanc. While most people go straight to Les Contamines from Chamonix or Les Houches, this little detour allowed for a shorter first day. I highly recommend this for the first night. The Refuge de Miage is in a little valley which can only be described as paradise, with snowcapped... More

We got to Miage on a rainy day while hiking the TMB. Because of the rain we didn't get to enjoy the outside seating area which looks very nice. The dorms are simple, a few mattresses one next to the other. The dorm was almost empty (us two, and two more people), but I think it will not feel very... More

The Refuge de Miage is about 6 hours from Les Houches on the TMB if you do the Col de Tricot alternative. However it is anot as remote as it feels and actually has vehicular access. It's a great place to stop for food and drink but also a great place to stay. We reserved a '2 bed room' and... More

This is a lovely place in the middle of nowhere, near Col du Truc (Tour du Mont Blanc). I didn´t slep there, but I stopped there for a nice hot shower and some rest. The restaurant is also very nice, with tables outside and with a superbe view.

We walked from the car park at gruvaz which was an easy 2h walk with our 5 & 7 yr old. We were the only guests & stayed in a lovely chalet with double bed & bunk bed & toilet. Very clean & cosy. Fantastic location with the valley to explore with the kids. Olivier & celine were very welcoming... More

The settings for the refuge are great, in the valley, welcoming after a long decent. The refuge is mainly used as a stop point less for sleep, so they keep the toilets closed until “lunchers” leave. The showers didn’t work the night we were there, so we dived into the nearby river, a freezing but refreshing experience. The dormitories are... More

One of the larger places. We stayed here after the first stage of the trail du Mont Blanc. We started in Les Houches. We saw this place late afternoon but had booked another place. We first went to the other place but returned to Miage as it was much better. There is good atmosphere, good food (set menu) and very... More
