Walking Tours in France

This itinerary allows you to walk the tour of Mont Blanc in Comfort in only 8 days, i.e. you will always have a private room with a bathroom en suite. The idea is to provide you with the highest possible standard of accommodation around Mont Blanc while allowing you to experience the Tour of Mont Blanc within a week period. Dinners are included where there are no other options (for instance in Les Chapieux). In bigger towns, like Chamonix or Courmayeur, it is on a B&B basis.

This itinerary is the most authentic of all. Not only you will walk the whole tour without any bus transfer, but you will stay in accommodation high up in the mountains (mountain huts called refuges and gites when in town or villages).

On this trip, you will share your rooms while you are sleeping in hut and gite. Refuges worth the experience. You share a hearty meal with your co-guests of the evening and sleep in dorms (we always privilege small dorms of 4/6/8 persons when possible). The next morning, you wake up in the middle of the mountain in an environment where you will be the first person of the day to step in, still virgin of other TMB walkers. And of course, this option happens to be the cheapest one with most dinners included.

Carcassonne is famous for the Cité de Carcassonne, a medieval fortress restored by the theorist and architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in 1853.

The Luberon region of Provence is one of the finest examples of the French countryside. Lean into a higher quality of life and a calming atmosphere in the stunning heart of Provence. The area is named after the main mountain range; a compact massif with an easy 1100m summit. The northern face is steep and rich in oaks, whereas the villages in southern Luberon overlook the tranquil course of the Durance river. Sun-gilded drystone walls, ochre-washed homes, terraced fields and shady squares with gurgling fountains all contribute to the warm and gentle lifestyle which dominates here.

Think about France. Villages nestled in pretty valleys, steeples of medieval churches pointing out to the blue sky, traditional food fairs, green hilly vineyards, rich food and of course, its prestigious wines. Burgundy has it all, as you are about to discover! Ideally located at the crossroad of Western Europe, Burgundy has played a huge part in the future of France since the Gallic times. Add to this a sum up of all the French “clichés” and “raisons d’être”, no wonder it is called the cradle of France. For several centuries, the fame and power of the Duchy of Burgundy brought wealth to the region. Nowadays, its amazing architectural heritage can still be seen everywhere as the numerous typical Burgundy tiled roofs testify.

The land has been cultivated and shaped by centuries of interaction between local populations and their physical environment, in particular, the Loire itself.

Known to the French as “Périgord”, the Dordogne “département”, is named after the most important of the region’s seven rivers. The area is a celebration of colour and diversity of landscape. It is also called the “Land of the 1001 sites”. To walk here is to travel through time. Here you will discover unspoilt nature, grandiose landscapes and a plethora of magical sights teeming with history: in the small town of Les Eyzies, the centre of pre-historic studies, we can recount the history of the region thanks to the newly rebuilt Museum of Pre-History. Many castles from the Middle Ages and Renaissance periods, testimony to the Hundred Years’ War and Wars of Religion that raged here; medieval villages full of character (among the “Plus beaux villages de France”); Romanesque churches adorned with sculpted tympanums. The Périgord is also envied the world over for the splendours of its traditional gastronomy. High-quality products used in the preparation of its local cuisine include foie gras, other duck- and goose-based ingredients, the famous black truffles of the Périgord, chestnuts, walnuts, and Périgord strawberries, not forgetting the wines of Bergerac, produced from top grape varieties on land that neighbours the “grands crus classés” of Bordeaux. Choosing to visit the Dordogne with One Foot Abroad, is to choose the perfect itinerary encompassing all the variety and highlights, from Sarlat to Les Eyzies, with the castles and river as a guide. We named this trip: “a delicate savour of France” for a compelling reason: because it is! “Good food and wine, this is paradise on earth”, said France’s much-loved king, Henri IV. Note: We have a shorter trip itinerary for this route which is just three days walking from Sarlat to Les Eyzies de Tayac, ask your walking holiday planner for more information.
