Bi Gîte

Our alpine hut « Le Bi-Djitho » (name in dialect) is located just below Cerniat on the La Berra crest, in the Fribourg Pre-Alps. It can be reached either from Plasselbschlund or Cerniat (Gîte of Allières) after about an hour-walk.

During a thunderstorm, the chalet has been struck by lighting and has been entirely rebuilt in 2004, respecting the art and tradition with a tavillon roof. On the first floor there is a kitchen with a fireplace and a bedroom/living room. On the upper floor, there is a room with 6 places to sleep and the armailli room. Spring water can be found 50 meters away from the chalet and there is no electricity.

This place is very unique with a wide landscape showing close mountains. The closeness to the monastery of La Valsainte and the summit of La Berra makes it a mystical place.
