Self-guided walking tour on the Cele Valley

We arrived home yesterday after a superb time in France. As soon as we met Philippe, the charming taxi driver from Quercy tours,  we knew we would love the trip. Our accommodation was lovely, the food plentiful and our hosts made us most welcome,  especially Evelyne and Alain in Livinhac and Ian in Le Picarel, who could not do enough for us. The walks were very good and the weather was perfect.

 There are, however, two minor quibbles: the photocopied maps were not at all helpful and we had to rely on the GPS on the phone to find our chambres d'hotes. Also, the luggage transfer had a limit of 13kg per bag for the maille poste and 14kg for Claudine's company; we were unaware of this and our bags were overweight. I was given an extra bag to share the load, and the normal charge for this is 3 euros a day. We were not charged, however, at the owner's discretion, but I do feel that this should be pointed out in the trip notes.

It is a good sign when we start looking at your website for future walking holidays even before we've got home from the current one. Huw fancies the Pyrenees next, whereas I like the idea of visiting Rocamadour. Thank you for your help, Cecile, and we look forward to booking many more holidays with you in the future.

 

Best wishes,

Leigh

The Velodyssey cycling tour - from Bordeaux to Biarritz,

Thanks very much Cécile. I really appreciate your help. Not having my bike makes life so much easier. 

I will definitely tell friends about the ride and your excellent service.

The Puy Route - Moissac-Barcelonne du Gers -

This was our first hiking tour and it did not disappoint.

We were very impressed with the hotels selected for our tour and found the quality of the meals to be very good - we especially liked the hospitality of the Chambre d'Hotes. Further, we were impressed with the promptness and professionalism of our email exchanges with Cecile.

We would highly recommend Ici et la nature.

A very good range of landscapes, culture and activities, slightly more hills than expected, 

Just the right amount of kilometers per day.

It was a great service and we were very pleased with all aspects of the holiday.

We were also very pleased with the hotel that was booked for us in Bordeaux. Thank you.

I wanted to reiterate that the experience was great and wonderful.

It opened many vistas within and without.

It was demanding and grueling but a feast to the soul. Thank you for your help to make it so easy.

We are back home now and reminiscing about a wonderful Cathar Castle Trek.  We all learned a great deal about a part of France we knew nothing about.  The biggest surprises along the way were the steady and fierce mistral winds which buffeted us for the first four days and the almost non-existent hikers on the trail and/or villagers in the places where we stayed overnight.  
All this said, we enjoyed the hosts where we were lodged, ate consistently good food, slept soundly in comfortable beds, and had a memorable time.Very best regards and many thanks for all your support and assistance

Bonjour, Cecile -

        Now that my wife and I have returned to the US from our wonderful walk in La France Profonde, I wanted to thank you for your flawless support of our Walk.  Everything that you organized for us - hotels, taxis, baggage transfer - worked perfectly.  You and your colleagues at Chemin de France have a fine reputation on this Camino route.  Our hosts at our accommodations and our taxi drivers spoke well of you and provided friendly, reliable service.   Without you, we could not have had such a wonderful trip.

       Our thanks for a job truly well done.

                 Buen Camino !

Bonjour Cecile, 

We would just like to say what a wonderful time we had on the Cathar castle walking tour.  We found the accommodation charming, the food delicious and our hosts very welcoming.  The notes and maps provided by Nouvel Itineraire were excellent and their organisation of the whole trip was superb. We met two Americans who had booked the same trip through an English company and were disappointed not to receive the maps and guide book that we were sent! We recommended your company to them, as we will our friends, as we have been delighted with the service provided.

 We are very interested in many more of the independent walking holidays you feature on your website and look forward to dealing with you again in the future.

 With thanks and best wishes,

Leigh and Huw
