Hi Folks
Planning a trek along the line of the Tour of the Aiguilles Rouges. There are a few refuges on the way but google is not helping me find any website etc.. to enquire about booking.

Have you come across anything that might help? the other problem is I don't speak French.

Thanks

Depending on your itinerary there are only about four refuges in total. You could start looking at these:

http://www.refuges.info/point/371/refuge-garde/aiguilles-rouges/refuge-de-la-pierre-a-berard/
http://www.refuges.info/point/357/refuge-garde/aiguilles-rouges/refuge-du-lac-blanc/

The Grenairon site gives phone numbers for all other refuges you might use. They'll all be closed now but there'll often be a phone number for the gardiens home. Try some French and you'll probably find that they'll switch to English as soon as they realise that it'll be easier.

Most CAF huts are bookable online (via CAF website). You pay a 10 euro deposit via the site.http://www.ffcam.fr
