14 September 2017 – Lunas to Col de Peyrolls

This is a moderately easy walk of about 4 km. It includes a long but gentle climb and returns beside the Gravezon river.

This walk starts in the centre of Lunas and the first 2 km are a long but gentle climb, rising about 100 m, to the Col de Peyrolls. Initially this is a concrete road (with good views down to the town), then an old Mule path, which is often very stony (so good shoes are recommended), but is never steep. At the top we join a good forest track for the gentle descent (with views across to Le Bousquet), and the last part of the circuit is a flat path beside the river.

As usual we shall meet outside the Luteva Cinema at 9:50, ready to depart at 10:00. The walk will start at about 10:30 from the main bridge in Lunas (next to the Chateau) – parking is generally easy in the town or beside the river. We should be back in Lodeve by 13:00.

Leader: Andrew
Distance: ~4 km, climb 100 m
Bring: good footwear


24 September 2015 – From Lunas to Laval de Nize

Laval de Nize chapel

A peaceful sunny there and back walk for a Thursday morning, following the minor road from Lunas to Laval de Nize. The chapel at Laval de Nize is by the stream – an ideal place for a summer picnic.

On the way we passed the Fontaine des Yeux. The water there is said to be good for the eyes, the idea being to dip your handkerchief in the water and then leave it hanging there. Unfortunately we only had tissues.

Lavel de Nize is at the start of another walk which follows the Nize and climbs up through the forest, returning by the village of Briandes. To be done when there is less water about!
