    Die Gite de Bousieyas ist nicht empfehlenswert. Sie ist zwar neu, hat aber für 18 Pers nur 1 Toilette, keine Aufenthaltsraum, aus Platzmangel wird das Essen in der privaten Gites nebenan serviert. Unfreundliches Personal.

    The Gite de Bousieyas is not recommended. Although it is new, but has only one toilet for 18 people, no lounge, lack of space, the food is served in the private Gites next door. Unfriendly staff.

    In St. Etienne gibt es weitere Übernachtungsmöglichkeiten, zB Hotel des Amis. Einfach, aber sauber und familiär.

    Monaco - Trieste

    Good camp ground @ Col D'anelle, water bathtub available

    St Dalmas is 1hour away from Col d'Anelle.
    The food served @ Gite Philippe Issautier to me was not good (frozen pork, fresh salad was appreciated tho)..the minimum is done (fill up the stomach of hungry hikers with carbohydrates)...had almost to beg to get an orange as dessert...paid 15euros for the below average dinner, 18euros for a bunk bed (expensive)...

    The gite have a kitchen facility, there are bar/restaurants and grocery store (not always open) in St dalmas

    Nice church in St Dalmas

    Roya - St Dalmas 20km, 5h20 of walking

    From St Dalmas to Col de la colombiere it took me 1h30 at the beginning a a nice sunny day in the early morning

    From col de la Colombiere to the gite of Boussieyas...an hour down, water stream to cross by foot (depends on the season, 3m wide 40cm high mid June 2013)

    On the way down to Boussieyas, possible to camp on flat, woods and water can be found on that side
