Overview

About the property

Location alpine hut in Rochefort, Val Ferret, at 1800 m altitude

The cabin is spacious and comfortable. On the ground floor there is a living room with a tiled stove and two sofa beds, a full kitchen with sink and a four-burner gas cooker and a wood-burning corner, a dining area with a wooden table for 6/8 people; on the upper floor there is a bedroom with a double bed and a second bedroom with four bunk beds; the bathroom is complete with a shower. A small attic houses an extra bed; outside the hut is surrounded by a meadow up to the forest limits; in front of the house there is the drinking fountain where the spring water flows continuously.

The electrical system is powered by solar panels, the water comes from the source, the heating is ensured by three wood stoves.

In winter, the cabin is recommended for good connoisseurs of the mountain, with the necessary equipment (backpacks, snowshoes or skis with skins), to avoid the risk of being isolated due to heavy snow.

During the winter and into spring the cabin remains senza'acqua due to frost. In this period the water can be drawn from the fountain a few meters from the hut, where it flows continuously.

The hut is delivered clean and tidy and must be returned at the end of the period of stay, equally clean and tidy. For this reason, no additional cleaning costs are charged. Guests must bring their own linen, sheets and towels.

N. B. FOR NEW YEAR PLEASE READ!

In winter the pasture of Rochefort remains isolated by the snow. It can be reached by going up Planpincieux in a half-hour walk on foot with snowshoes or ski equipment. In winter, the cabin has no water, but you can tap into the fountain flowing continuously. For these reasons in winter, the hut is recommended for a few true mountain dwellers, frequent visitors to shelters and bivouacs or to those who want to enjoy a week 'out of it all'.

Notes:
The Rochefort hut is recommended in the summer for families or couples of friends for an intense experience in contact with nature and the mountains, in an environment that is both fascinating and severe, warm and hospitable. The collection of blueberries provides great satisfaction to lovers of jams and again raspberries and wild strawberries. Walking or horse riding, mountain hiking, climbing, golf, trout fishing are recommended activities on fine days. In the autumn we note the foliage and deer in love. In winter, the cabin remains isolated; it can be reached in half an hour with a walk in the snow that can also be challenging, depending on the quantity and quality of the fallen snow; snowshoes or ski mountaineering skis are recommended. In this period the stay in the hut is allowed only a few true mountain-lovers, ski mountaineering or cross-country skiers, who know how to move and orient themselves in the mountains independently.

WELCOME TO THE ROCHEFORT BAITA

The Rochefort pasture is located at the foot of the Mont Blanc range, just below the Dente del Gigante; you can get there along a dirt road that starts from the village of Planpincieux, in a dominant position on the valley and protected behind by the Mont Blanc chain, at the limit between the sunny meadows and a dense forest of firs, summer destination for seekers of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.

Deer, chamois, foxes ... animate the forest and, especially in the fall and spring, they approach the hut.

In the summer, the pasture is surrounded by meadows where cows graze the shepherds who prepare fresh butter and fontina to mature. You can walk on foot, horseback or mountain bike along the Val Ferret, reach shelters and camps on the Mont Blanc massif or along the Tour du Mont Blanc; collect berries to prepare jams and marmalades (beaten those of blueberries); attend the exclusive golf Val Ferret or simply enjoy the peace and serenity of the place to read a book under a larch or in the meadow in front of the hut. In the evening you can leave groped by one of the great restaurants of the Val Ferret, to return to the hut under the full moon or the stars.

In autumn, the village remains wrapped in a quiet unreal, exalted by the foliage, in warm tones of autumn colors of larch and birch. In recent months, the wood can give great satisfaction to mushroom hunters.
