This was the highlight of our Alta Via 1. People here are very nice, and even if they need to charge to a shower or use of water, it still is the best Refugio in Alta Via. The most expensive as well but, after a 7h hike in the rain, was like an oasis. The drying room for wet gear and boots was fantastic. The rooms clean and worm, 3 toilets next door, including bidet. Food was great, and the best choice in all Refugio's. Thank you, great family business, all the best.
We had our bad day, next day in Refugio Nuvolau.
