This is a marked circular walk (facile) of about 6.5 km, from the village of Fontès to the top of the nearby hill of Ceressou, from which there are excellent views.
The walk starts by exploring the village, which is built over the remains of a castle, and includes ramparts and old gates. From the village we set off across the fields, cross the Boyne river (stepping stones?), and then ascend the south flank of the Ceressou hill (described as an ancient volcano). The climb is about 180 m and is fairly steep (a monté, not a chemin) but should not be difficult. The top of the hill is flat, and from different points there are views south towards the sea, and west towards Fontès. We descend from the hill on the north-west side (not so steep), and then take a different route across the fields back to the village, returning via the church.
The forecast is that it will be mostly cloudy, but rain is unlikely, and it will be a bit warmer and less windy than recent days.
As usual we shall meet at the Luteva Cinema at 9:50, ready to depart at 10:00. The walk will start from the Cave (Fontesole) in Fontès, at about 10:45. The best route is to take the motorway to the Adissan turning, drive through the village and then follow the signs to Fontès. We should be back in Lodeve by 14:30.
Distance: 6.5 km, 200 m climb
