    Hébergement très agréable au refuge de l'Alpe Colma, vue imprenable, pain frais maison... et gardiens très sympas, alors qu'à Molina, on est au bord de la route (et près de l'arrêt de bus!) et lors de mon passage, l'hébergement était complet.

    Buongiorno, questa estate ho percorso parte della via alpina. Volevo solo informare che in Valle Ossola (piemonte) nella tappa Antrona Piana - Molini non è segnalato da nessuna parte che all'Alpe Colma (proprio a metà della tappa) esiste un Rifugio molto bello e accogliente, dove ho mangiato benissimo e speso poco. Si chiama Rifugio Alpe Colma.Ciao a tutti e...buon viaggio

    Hello, this summer I walked part of the way mountain. I just wanted to inform you that in Valle Ossola (Piedmont) in the stage Antrona Piana - Molini is not reported anywhere that Alpe Colma (right in the middle of the stage) there is a very nice and cozy hut, where I ate well and spent little. It's called Rifugio Alpe Colma.Ciao in all a good trip ...
