Very Good

The Auberge la Boerne is a very nice refuge with restaurant located in the hamlet of Tre-le-Champ at the north-western end of the Chamonix Valley. The hamlet of Tre-le-Champs is very beautiful with a great elevated location and wide spread farm houses and chalets around wide pastures. The Auberge sits in a nice location on the crossroads of many trails in the direction of Le Tour and the Aiguillete de Possettes on the northern side.  On the western side lies the hamlet of Le Planet and the Montagne de Peclerey. East from the Auberge lies the Lac Blanc and the trail leading through the Aiguilles Rouge nature reserve. Then to the north you will find the Cascade de Berard and the trails leading to the highest summit outside of the Mont Blanc massif, Mont Buet (3096m). So a perfect location for exploring in all directions!


The Auberge has a restaurant serving local Savoyard dishes including Croute and Tartiflette. It has 6 dormitories with a total capacity for 31 guests. The dormitories range in size from 2 to 9 beds and they can take private bookings. The website of the Auberge la Boerne takes online reservations and they generally seem to be open from June to the end of September.


The name "Boerne" comes from the French world for the chimney that was used for smoking meats. The Auberge la Boerne dates back to the 18th century when it was a farm belongning to the Charlet family. Armand Charlet, who was a mountain guide starting accepting guests at the farm. Gilbert, the grandson of Armand took over the farm and turned it into the inn it is today. 


The Auberge has its own parking for those coming with their own vehicle. The nearest bus stop is Tre-le-Champ a little north from the actual hamlet. The nearest train station is Montroc-le-Planet which is roughly a 20 minute walk away.
