From the Auvergne to Languedoc-Roussillon
The walking holiday starts from Le Puy en Velay and Monastier (Stevenson‘s own starting point) or from the headwaters of the river Allier. The trail crosses the Parc Naturel des Cévennes, following the route taken by R.L. Stevenson and by Modestine, his donkey (but this walking holiday is without the donkey).
Stevenson’s celebrated crossing of the Cévennes took him and his donkey Modestine 12 days. He started at Monastier sur Gazeille in Haute Loire and finished at St Jean du Gard. He left Monastier on the 22 September 1878......What we offer is four walking holidays, with all modern comforts, and without you having to carry all your belongings across three départements: Haute Loire, Lozère and Gard.....
