The Rifugio Bonatti in the Italian section of the Tour du Mont Blanc is a really nice place to stay.  The mountain backdrop is spectacular and for once you have a little time to just look without moving if you want!  There is an outdoor patio, perfect for some wine and cheese after your shower.  We were nervous all day because we didn’t have a reservation.  Every time we called they told us not to come, that they would have to send us away if we showed up.  Our friends, though, had a private room reserved and they were convinced they could talk them into letting us sleep on the floor if need be.  And voilà!  When we trudged in a little after them, they came out to greet us with news that the people in charge were bringing some mattresses in.  What a relief!

Dinner is fairly gourmet in its quality and the dining room comes alive with everyone buzzing about the day’s hike.
