Hidden hamlets, ancient churches and magnificent mountains

Compostela - Le Puy to Nasbinals - Stage 1

This classic walk follows in the footsteps of pilgrims often making use of the GR65 footpath.

Starting in the Massif Central, heading through the vineyards of south west France and finishing in the sunny foothills of the Pyrenees. The horizons are vast and the terrain remote, with buzzards overhead and villages scattered across the landscape.

    Good, but had to ask for Guardian discount to be applied. Too much documentation. Guidebooks very useful. Maps not needed at all because this route is so well signposted. The topoguide GR 65 plus your guides provides all the maps needed and is easier to carry, but you need to read French. We liked the map carriers.

    Belle France: So glad that you enjoyed the holiday and found the route easy to navigate, so much so that even the maps were unnecessary. The St Jacques de Compostelle is indeed a very well walked and signposted route but we like to give maps too as some people like to refer to these.

    Sorry that you had to ask for the Guardian discount, though it is normally the case that the discount code has to be quoted at the time of booking.

    Unfortunately we had to book the sister hotel in Nasbinals due to lack of availability, we do hope that this did not spoil the holiday in any way and hope that you come back to us next year to book the 2nd stage.

    Product (5/5): All the arrangements worked well including luggage transfers. Hotel accommodation very variable in standard. Did not enjoy being told to retrace our steps at the end of the day to a sister hotel in Nasbinals. Some meals excellent. Meal at Espallion very poor and almost inedible.
