Caillet buvette d'altitude à Chamonix


Why this is a good address ?

  • With its breathtaking view of the Aiguilles rouges, the Crèmerie Caillet is a must in Chamonix, at 1590 m altitude.
  • A colorful bar, full of history. On the historic muleteers’ path, Josephine Bonaparte and Victor Hugo settled there!
  • The service is continuous from 9 am until dinner (evening meal on reservation)
  • You can enjoy the lemon meringue pie, the wood-fired tartiflette at sunset, the buffet of savory pies or the brioche. Everything is homemade and tasty!
  • Unusual night in the comfortable translucent Dome, oriented so as to be aligned with the North Star. For 125 €/pers, treat yourself to an unforgettable night in a queen size bed under the stars and an exquisite half board.

To go to the Caillet mountain bar is to follow in the footsteps of the valley’s pioneers. Between Chamonix and Montenvers, this creamery will delight you with its exceptional view and its delicious menu. It is even said that the life span of a lemon pie when it comes out of the oven is 1 hour…

How not to marvel at the sunset, the scent of a wood oven pizza titillating you and wake up in the transparent dome, facing the Aiguilles Rouges?

On the terrace, under the stars or by the fire, come and discover the Caillet experience.

An easy hike for an unspeakable reward”.
