Walking Holidays

Apart from July and August when its really too hot to walk, we offer a range of guided or unguided walking holidays based at our gite in Itzac. The northern Tarn area offers superb walking country with rolling hills, plateaux and wooded valleys. With our height, there are always spectacular views to be seen.


The walks can be tailored to your requirements from easy strolls of a couple of kilometers to covering parts of the main national and regional walks which pass close by - we can divide these into daily sections to suit and will transport you to/from the start and finish each day.We can also cater for differents levels of walk during the same week as both Janet and I can act as guides. Finally, we can also base walks around the local food and wine producers, markets and historic hilltop villages steeped in the Cathar history.  

We can accommodate up to 12 walkers using 3 double and 3 twin rooms in our house and gite. Two of these are ensuite and there are 2 other shower rooms. We will provide fantastic food and local wine (and soft drinks too) to help you enjoy your experience of our beautiful surroundings including picnics for longer walks. And of course there's the pool to relax in during May, June, September and October


Finally, we can provide transport to and from the airports at Rodez, Carcassonne or Toulouse and the stations at Montauban or Toulouse if you don't want to hire a car.
