D 1
Day 1 – Arrival in LE PUY EN VELAY
The volcanic site of Le Puy is of exceptional beauty, with pitons rising in number all across the plain. The city has a long history. Having always been a place of cultish or religious activity, it has more recently been dominated by Christianity and has become a sanctuary of the Virgin Mary. As a place of pilgrimage in itself, and the departure point for one of the paths on the pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostela, Le Puy deserves a visit. Take time to see the Episcopal city, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the cloister, the Saint Michel d’Aiguilhe Chapel sitting on a rock hill, and the old quarter. Le Puy is also famous for its lace, a liquor called La Verveine du Velay, and its lentils – Half-board accommodation in a two-star hotel
D 2
Day 2 – LE PUY EN VELAY – LE MONASTIER SUR GAZEILLE (19 km – 5 and a half hour walk)
After walking through the plateau, you will descend into the Loire valley to Coubon dominated by the château of Bouzol. You will cross the river and go up on the other side to reach Le Monastier sur Gazeille, small town rich in history. The old city is very pleasant and is worth a visit – Half-board accommodation in a two-star hotel
D 3
Day 3 – LE MONASTIER SUR GAZEILLE – LE BOUCHET SAINT NICOLAS (23 km – 6 and a half hour walk)
Before setting out, you will visit Monastier, its abbey and château, and the old streets and homes of the village. You will cross the valleys of the Gazeille and the Loire, then a vast plateau, to arrive at Le Bouchet. Half-board accommodation in a farmhouse. All conveniences provided
D 4
Day 4 – LE BOUCHET – LANGOGNE (25 km – 7 hour walk)
You will hike the length of the plateau, passing through picturesque little villages such as Landos and Jagonas, to reach Pradelles, a medieval city worth visiting. You will then arrive in Langogne, a small city that grew up around its medieval center. Half-board accommodation in a two-star hotel
D 5
Day 5 – LANGOGNE – CHEYLARD L’EVEQUE (16 km – 4 and a half hour walk)
Today’s hike is short, giving you time to wander around the little villages you will pass through, such as Saint Flour de Merçoire, where you will discover a Romanesque church. Your destination for the day is Cheylard l’Eveque, a picturesque village at the end of the earth, sitting quietly in the shadow of the Notre Dame de Toutes les Graces Chapel, accessible by a path which leads one through the 14 Stations of the Cross. Half-board accommodation in a guest house with all conveniences provided
D 6
Day 6 – CHEYLARD – LA BASTIDE PUY LAURENT (19 km – 5 hour walk)
You will cross through the forest and over small streams, admiring the landscape all the way to Luc, which now holds only the ruins of a château that once defended the entire Allier Valley. You will follow the river to La Bastide Puy Laurent. Half-board accommodation in a one-star hotel with all conveniences
D 7
Day 7 – LA BASTIDE – CHASSERADES
with a round-trip journey to the Abbey of Notre Dame des Neiges (about an hour and a half walk) then, La Bastide – Chasseradès (12 km). In the morning you will leave for a visit of the Trappist abbey of Notre Dame des Neiges which Stevenson, though Protestant, often mentioned in his writings. The buildings were all rebuilt after a fire in 1912. You will return to La Bastide to point your route towards Chasseradès, passing through the lovely village of Chabalier, and by the Rocher de Rochaubo, which looks much like a château in ruins. Half-board accommodation in the same one-star hotel at La Bastide
