Relaxing in the Sun at the Refuge de Folly, Samoëns

Whilst we’d previously walked up to the refuges of Boston and Golese we’d never visited the Refuge de Folly which is set between the equally impressive Mountagne du Criou and the Pointe du Tuet.

The walk itself forms part of the Tour des Dents Blanches and after an hour of walking up through the Les Grands Bois from our starting point at Le Pied du Crêt we rewarded with stunning views up the valley of Pointe de la Golette, with the Dent Blanches beyond, and views right down the Giffre Valley back across the village of Samoëns and Grand Massif ski domain behind.

After a spot of lunch we took up residence in a couple of deck chairs on the terrace at the refuge and despite the stunning scenery, fell asleep in the sun!
