The Emilio Questa refuge (2388 m) stands on a rocky peak located on the north shore of Lac des Portette, in the heart of a vast valley surrounded by the peaks of Portette, Claus and Prefouns. It is an ideal place for naturalist excursions: you can see chamois, ibexes, marmots and the emblematic bearded vulture.




In the large dining room on the ground floor, furnished with wooden furniture, or on the tables in the dehors, you can taste the best specialties of Piedmontese cuisine, or simply take advantage of the bar and relax. For those who also want to stay the night, there are four dormitories divided over two floors and some independent "open space" huts; finally there is a winter room, accessible even when the refuge is closed, for the benefit of hikers. A flat rocky "platform" has also been created near the building, used as a heliport, for the primary use of the security and rescue services.

The refuge is included in various local and international excursion itineraries, of varying difficulty and with different characteristics; many others, while not directly touching the " Questa ", are nearby and easily accessible.

Practical informations
