    Auch wenn man nicht im dort übernachtet, lohnt sich der Umweg vom Valscura-See zum Rifugio Questa. Die Landschaft entlang der ehemaligen Militärstrasse "Strada degli Alpini" mit den vielen kleinen Seen ist ausserordentlich schön.

    Even if you are not staying there, the detour from Valscura Lake to Rifugio Questa is worthwhile. The landscape along the former military road "Strada degli Alpini" with the many small lakes is extremely beautiful.

    3h40 c'est correct pour aller au refuge Questa, et j'ai continué dans la descente caillouteuse, jusqu'à Terme di Valdieri. (Je ne savais pas que l'hôtel Royal gérait un gîte). J'ai été à la Pensione Albergo chambre et 1/2 pension ; il y avait d'autres randonneurs.

    3:40 it's okay to go to the Questa refuge, and I continued in the stony descent to Terme di Valdieri. (I did not know that the Royal Hotel ran a shelter). I was at the Pensione Albergo bedroom and 1/2 board; there were other hikers.

    Faute de place dans le petit Rifugio QUESTA, j'ai poursuivi l'itinéraire jusqu'aux Thermes de VALDIERI ou est situé un gite d'étape de la GTA géré par l'Hotel Royal. C'est dans ce bel hotel plein de curistes en peignoir que se prennent diner et petit déjeuner. Un autre monde !
    L'hebergement est assuré dans un batiment annexe aménagé avec douches et petits dortoirs.
    Nourriture varié et abondante avec petit déjeuner pris sous forme de buffet.
    Tel : 00 39 (0)17197106 ou 97107 ou 97108. Il faut réserver...

    Lack of space in the small Rifugio QUESTA, I continued the route to the Baths of VALDIERI or ATM is located a step of cottage managed by the Hotel Royal. It is in this beautiful hotel full of spa guests in a bathrobe that will take dinner and breakfast. Another world! The accommodation is provided in a separate building equipped with showers and small dormitories. Varied and plentiful breakfast buffet taken. Tel: 00 39 (0) 17197106 or 97107 or 97108.
