Sample various dishes typical of the region at this serviced hut.

 The hut was built in 1982 in memory of mountaineer George Bertone, who died in a plane crash below the summit of Mont Blanc du Tacul in 1977. Here you can sample various dishes typical of the region, in particular, their polenta, which is still cooked on a wood fire.
