Colloquial Area
“Le pâturage de Solalex et un endroit magique, entouré d'impressionnantes falaises de roches grises si élevées et abruptes, qu'elles vous en donnent le tournis.De la Croix des Chaux au Miroir d'Argentine, en passant par les contres forts du Glacier des Diablerets culminant à près de 3000 m. Ces belles montagnes sauvages semblent protéger le bucolique petit hameau de Solalex et son Refuge.”

Coffee Shop
“A small extremely friendly family orientated bar and restaurant. Limited menu but the atmosphere is really good and used by the locals. 4 minutes walk from the chalet. Open till 8.00 so not necessarily the place to eat in the evening. I love going for a glass of wine here.”
