The refuge stands on the Costa Valcaira, on a grassy slope in a panoramic position on the eastern slopes of Pizzo d'Ormea.

The Valcaira refuge stands at 2010 m asl on the southern slope of the homonymous coast which rises from Colle di Chionea in a NW direction towards the cone of Pizzo di Ormea. Near the building there are the highest springs of the Rio Archetti, which feeds the Rio Chiapino.
From the refuge you can enjoy a vast panorama of the Alta Val Tanaro and the Ligurian Sea from Sanremo to the Cinque Terre.
