This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • rewarding, full days of walking in the uplands
  • wild and varied scenery
  • great mix of accommodation

Unspoiled and largely undiscovered, the Cévennes National Park (granted UNESCO World Heritage status in June 2011) is a land of rugged mountains coated in heather, gorse and open grassland that turns golden in the sun, while the slopes of the deep valleys below are cloaked with majestic chestnut woods. The region seems scarcely to have been touched by the march of time; ancient ways continue and historic buildings are preserved. Indeed, you can imagine that the wild landscapes of the Park, home to eagles and vultures, have changed little since Robert Louis Stevenson passed through on his Travels with a Donkey.

We hugged ourselves with pleasure as we gazed out over stone buildings and silent narrow streets unchanged since the days when they buzzed with the latest news from the court of Louis XIV.
     
The Guardian
By leading across the wild uplands as well as the lower valleys, our challenging but rewarding route promises very varied walking, with each season bringing its charms, be it vivid broom in spring, colourful expanses of heather in high summer or ripening chestnuts in autumn. You stay in an appealing combination of welcoming hotels and traditional guesthouses (chambres d’hôtes), with some delicious regional cuisine.
