Cabane de l'A Neuve

The Cabane de l'A Neuve is a mountain hut in the Swiss Alps at 2,735 metres above sea level open for visitors.
The Cabane de l'A Neuve was built as 'Cabane Dufour a La Neuvaz', in 1927 with a legacy from Mr. Edouard Dufour and had a capacity of 22 beds at the time. As of 2014, it has 28 beds.
The hut can be reached from the Val Ferret. The hut lies below the Grand Darray (3,514 m) on the south side in the Mont Blanc Massif. Other summits close to the hut are the Tour Noir (3,835 m), the Grande Lui (3,509 m) and the Mont Dolent (3,823 m).
The hut is owned by the Diablerets (Lausanne) section of the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC). It is the starting point for alpine tours in the Swiss part of the Mont Blanc massif. It is located on a small rocky spur with a view of the dwindling Glacier de l'A Neuve.
