It is situated in the frazione of Chiappera, in the upper Maira Valley at approximately 1,650 metres above sea-level on the right bank of the main valley floor of the Maurin river (the upper stretch of the Maira river). Opened in 1982, has been renewed during 2010 and has now 26 sleeping accommodations in the refuge and an area for camping.
