HERE'S HOW IT ALL WORKS
We pick you up at the airport or train station on your arrival and you are driven in a minibus to La Petite Galerie in Mézin for your 'welcome' evening meal of local dishes and wine.
You are accommodated for the first night at at La Petite Galerie. 3 couples (6 guests) share 3 bedrooms - each with its own bathroom.
A continental breakfast is provided every day.
Each morning you are taken to the start of the walk in the back up vehicle (mini bus) for that day's stage.
Everyone has a detailed map of the route.
You are accompanied by an English/French speaking guide every day.
A picnic lunch of local produce and wine is provided at midday every day.
The minibus picks you up at the end of the day’s walk and takes you to a small hotel, a gite or a B&B.
The minibus is only a phone call away if needed.
Dinner with wine is taken at a nearby restaurant, bar or bistro.
On the final day we drive you back to the airport or railway station after breakfast at the end of your holiday.
DAY TO DAY ALONG THE WAY
We follow the GR 65 route which takes you on some of the prettiest and most interesting stages on the St Jacques Route in SW France. Several villages are officially designated 'One of the most beautiful villages in France'. Here are some of the villages we visit:
Montreal, Fources, Eauze, Pimbo, Navarrenx, St-Jean-le-Vieux, St Jean Pied de Port.
Please email us if you have any questions:
On the last day of the walk we start near the pretty Basque town of St Jean Pied de Port and climb up the Route Napoleon over the Pyrenees, finishing at the famous monastery at Roncesvales in Spain.
A note on the daily distance walked
The support vehicle is only a phone call away. This means that the distances we walk can be tailored to suit the group and is by consensus. And, as you only carry a small day pack, the daily distance we choose to walk is between 10 and 20 kilometres - easily achievable by most walkers.
The Back Up or Support Vehicle
All your excess gear will be in the back up vehicle and all you will need is a day pack with a rain jacket,
some water and, perhaps, a snack.
The back up vehicle is exactly what it says it is:
In case of sore feet, knees, hips, blisters, or even hangovers, the minibus is only a phone call away if needed.
Breakfast at La Petite Galerie
