HERE'S HOW IT ALL WORKS
We pick you up at the airport or train station on your arrival and you are driven in a minibus to La Petite Galerie (where you stay for the week). Your 'welcome' evening meal consists of a spread of local delicacies and wine.
Up to 6 guests share 3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms.
A generous continental breakfast is provided every day.
Each morning you are taken to the start of the walk in a mini bus for that day's stage. 
Everyone has a detailed map of the route.
You are accompanied by an English/French speaking guide every day.  
A picnic lunch of local produce and wine is provided at midday every day.
The minibus picks you up at the end of the day’s walk and takes you back to La Petite Galerie.
The minibus is only a phone call away if needed.
Dinner with wine is taken at a nearby restaurant, bar or bistro. This meal is pre ordered and consists of an entree, a main course, and a dessert.
On the final day we drive you back to the airport or railway station after breakfast at the end of your holiday.

DAY TO DAY ALONG THE PILGRIM'S WAY
We follow the GR 65 route which takes you on some of the prettiest and most interesting stages on the 
St Jacques Route to Compostelle in SW France. 
Several villages are officially designated 
'One of the most beautiful villages in France'. 
Lectoure, La Romieu, Condom, Larressingle, Fources, Montreal and Eauze are all particularly pretty.  
HOW TO GET THE BEST DEAL
Travelling with a group of 6 friends, workmates, or relatives will get you all the best price: an all inclusive 7 days for only 1300 Euros per person.
