Access from Vernosse/Oyace:
From Vernosse, reach the bridge and follow the farm road until you come to the path that leads to Verdona and touches on the Broille mountain pasture and the Alp Chavannes. Just after that, you will come to the fork junction for col d’Arpeyssaou. Turn right to get to the pass and go down the opposite slope until you come to the bivouac.
Access from Moncorvé/Valpelline:
After reaching the hamlet of Montcorvé along the road that goes from Valpelline to the cemetery, take route 6A on the the right a few metres after the residential area. This route joins path 6 on its way from the valley and then leads to Verdignolettaz. From here, continue along the dirt road for a few metres up to Chez-Charvin. Again, the path takes you to Alp Curtellet and Verdignolaz. After this village, you soon come to a crossroads with itinerary 105 from Col de Fouillou. Take this route on the left, which leads first to Alp Arpeyssaou and then to the La Lliée refuge, from where you soon come to Col de l’Arpeyssaou.
Equipment: blankets, water in the fountain only in Summer, gas stove, kitchen material.
