  • We had an excellent lunch there earlier this week, very good service in a magical setting after a trek in the mountains.

  • Great place if you've got
  • Apparently the access to Lac de Gaube is closed in the winter with the risk of avalanche. But the hike from Pont d’Espagne to the other parts was really nice too. Parking Puntas was accessible but for 7€ a day and all you have to do is leave your car there and begin from there.
