To reach the Inn

The shortest route is from Van d’en Haut, a hamlet situated just above the village of Salvan – Les Marécottes, you can reach Salanfe in 1½ hours.

Route from Van d’en Haut to Salanfe Mountain Inn

This walking trail is picturesque and offers a lot of variety. After the spot known as the Maraiche, where the trail and the road cross, there are some quite steep flights of stairs which will take you up in altitude quickly. The trail then crosses the other route, the old access road, once again.
