Apart from the possibilities already mentioned , like a stay at our place in combination with theme walks , a tour with or without the company of a donkey and staying in different tourist structures , or combined with other outdoor activities , we now also realised a special  arrangement for walkers with the choice of staying in our B & B  or in  one of our holiday cottages .

Choosing the B & B formula you enjoy your breakfast and dinner with us , and if you wish we  will  prepare you some sandwiches for a picnic lunch .

Staying in a holiday cottage you are self – catering , the cottages are equipped  with a modern kitchen and shops only 1 kilometre away .  

This arrangement is available as from half of May as to half of October , and can be booked either individually or as a (small or bigger) group.
It concerns one fixed residence , La Combette at Saint Jean du Bleymard, from where every day and during 6 days another walk from 6 to 8 hours has been mapped out for you , offering a large variety of landscapes, centuries old farms and other  samples of  cultural heritage . 

In spring an enormous amount of wild flowers add to the joy of splendid walks , as do the mushrooms ( among which the locally much appreciated  cep ! ) in autumn .

Descriptions of the walks and detailed maps are put at your disposal .


Description of the suggested walks,
per day

Day 1 : Walk towards and on top of the Mont Lozère ( 1699 m. ) , 7 to 8 hours , ± 23 km. , going from 1060 to 1699 metres , and back . Magnificent views , in granite sculptured Malta crosses reminding us of the former reign of Malta knights here, large sheep herds …

Day 2 : Walk along the foot of  the Mont Lozère , 5 ½ to 6 hours , 22 km. and between 980 and 1210 m. 
With among other things a beautiful view on  the ruins of a feudal  castle , some “ menhirs “ ( vertically placed granite stones of which is not known why they were , long time ago , put the way they are ( maybe a religious meaning ? ) ), and passing the hamlet of Oultet with its bell for stress of weather .

Day 3 : Walk in the Margeride area , north of La Combette and situated just on the other side of the Goulet range of hills ; 5 hours , 19 km. , and between 1170 and 1463 meters  , with a short car transfer towards and from the point of departure . Plateau , many small streams and green meadows with cows and sheep , railway with snow barriers .Contrast with other walks.

Day 4 : Walk of the bells for stress of weather , 4 ½  hours + short car transfer ( or leaving on foot from La Combette , then adding  ± 3 hours )  , 18 km. and walking between 980 and 1350 m . . These kind of bells , found in a lot of hamlets on the Mont Lozère , used to be rung in case of stress of weather , so shepherds and other travellers could find their way back to a village . Quite some people found death on this mountain because of its quick changing weather conditions , especially in winter….

Day 5 : Walk to the source ( -s ) of the  river of the Lot . About 6 hours , between 1060 and 1286 meter. Via a stretch on the Goulet range of hills towards the spot where the Lot finds its source. Splendid nature , much forest and  beautiful views , among other things on the Mont Lozère.

Day 6 : Walk to the ruins of the Tournel   Castle ( 12th century ) , 7 to 8 hours , ± 12 km. and between 1060 and 1230 meter. This rather well preserved castle is situated on a hill close to the Lot and offers a nice view  ;also passing several hamlets  with well preserved farms , and enjoying some marvellous views .  

Of course you can change the order of
the hikes to your liking.
