Refuge de l'Espace

Refuge de l'Espace

Located on Glacier 3000, the atypical Refuge de l’Espace enjoys a unique, privileged location above Derborence. It offers regional dishes that can be enjoyed while admiring the stunning view from the terrace.

The Refuge de l'Espace has without doubt one of the most spectacular views in the Vaud Alps! It is set against the slopes of the Diablerets Massif, at the foot of the "Quille du Diable" at 2,860 metres. In the middle of this glacial landscape, the warm welcome of the managers warms the heart.

With its magnificent terrace, the restaurant offers a cuisine prepared with regional products. Among the must-try dishes are the hot "Rougemont Fleurette tomme" with truffle oil and fried potatoes, the "Schüblig" sausage with Bénichon mustard and fried potatoes as well as homemade desserts such as tarte tatin and chocolate cake.

Playful jackdaws are often seen and the lucky ones can admire the majestic bearded vultures that have their nest nearby. Over a cup of "Yeti" tea or "Refuge" coffee, the public can also discover the history and legend of the 1714 landslide and the famous Devil's Keel. Young and old feel as if they are in another world at the Refuge de l'Espace.
