Gite d'Etape du Casset

Gite d'Etape du Casset

The Gite d'Etape du Casset is located in a small hamlet called Le Casset in the heart of the spectacular Valgaudemar valley.

It is a great stop-over for walkers doing our famous Tour du Vieux Chaillol or mountain bikers on the tour of the Champsaur and Valgaudemar valleys.

The building is a traditional stone farmhouse and it is a youth hostel style accommodation. It is basic but functional, with everything you need for a comfortable night in a refuge!

There are dormitories sleeping from 2 to 15 people with shared toilets. Sheets, pillows and covers are included. However we recommend that you bring a sleeping bag liner to sleep in as the sheets are not washed after every guest!

In the summer, you can enjoy a lovely terrace outside of the Gite with amazing views over the surrounding Himalayesque mountains of the Valgaudemar Valley.
