The day begins with a glorious contouring walk from Refugio Bonatti before descending into Val Ferret, where the climb of Grand col Ferret begins. The top of the col brings up Switzerland. Descending through picture book scenes of chalets, grazing cattle and fabulous alpine views you soon reach La Fouly, an idyllic alpine village of wooden chalets overflowing with flowers. 

Note de l'auteur

We recommend the high route from La Peule (described in the guidebook as the alternative). It offers lovely views and avoids the small portion on the road that the regular, signposted route follows. However, please note that the start of the path is not always obvious and it may seem like you are heading "off track" at the beginning (especially if the field is a little muddy and cattle have graze there). 

The signposted route will take you down to Ferret where you can catch a bus to La Fouly should you wish to shorten the walk slightly.

We would also say that Hotel Edelweiss was a favourite! The staff were helpful and friendly- the rooms clean and comfortable! The meals were also tasty and plentiful!

Our experience at the Edelweiss was quite good, with a small exception (described below). The staff were polite and efficient at check-in, though not effusive. Our room was comfortable, clean, and completely up-to-date, with a wonderful view of the mountains (see the view below). The bed was very comfortable, the sheets and towels soft, and the pillows plentiful. Lots of outlets, but bring Swiss adapters. We relaxed for a while in the lobby, and later moved onto the back deck. Staff were polite and unobtrusive, and the atmosphere was very relaxing. And now the caveat. At dinner, we noticed that the servers were a bit disorganized. For example, a table of four behind us received two entrees, and the server returned to the kitchen for two more entrees but then never made it back to that table. Instead, they served entrees to other tables and the table behind us had to call someone over after about 5 minutes of wondering where their missing entrees were. We all shared a laugh about it, and had no further incidents. The food was delicious and plentiful (though after hiking all day I could still have eaten more -- that's just me). The room was very comfortable for sleeping, and quiet (except for a huge storm in the middle of the night). A great night's sleep. Breakfast was the usual European fare, and since it was buffet style it was fast and efficient. Also delicious, with some excellent crusty bread.

I have to disagree with both L Diffo and N Pugliano. Hotel Edelweiss was one of the best places we stayed in during our TMB. We had an amazing room overlooking the mountains, with the most comfortable beds. We had a bath tub, which was heaven after our walk from Bonatti. Dinner and breakfast were both plentiful and delicious. We accidentally left our poles behind in the drying room and they quickly organised to send them on for us. Absolutely no complaints and I would give them 5 stars.
