Self-guided walking holidays

Walks in France : Cevennes, Auvergne, Perigord, Normandy ...

What do we mean by "self-guided" or "unaccompanied"?

We mean that once you have decided where you are going using either the brochure or this website, you can set out on the day of your choosing (subject to the availability of accommodation etc), alone or in a group; we make your reservations for each stage of the walking holiday and we transport your baggage for you along each stage. You are then able to walk at your own pace.
