Lovely view over the Gorges de la Diosaz and Servoz. Chalet opened in 1995.

Take the path on the right in between the houses. This crosses the Torrent du
Souay. After 200 metres, the path splits into two.
On the left, go up the Pormenaz route which meets the path coming from Le Mont. A little further on, leave this path and bear right to reach the Chalet and then carry on to Tete de la Fontaine.
