Culinary DelightsCheese fondue, wood fire raclette, hot smoked trout, carpaccio de bresaola (paper thin slices of salted, air-dried beef, in an olive oil dressing). Delices aux champignons (delicious mushroom dishes). Fondue Baccus (with meat).
SpecialitiesRenovated old farmhouse. Magnificently situated in a high mountain pasture. Night excursions with tobogganing and mulled wine.
Up at 1,560 m, right next to the piste above Gryon, the cosy mountain restaurant "Refuge de Frience" is the perfect place to while away a little time. The break between portions of raclette allows you to sit back and enjoy the beautiful panorama of the Dents du Midi and Le Muveran. This cosy and authentic mountain hut built from stone and wood can also be reached on foot, snowshoes or cross-country skis.
