    All being well I am setting off from Puy on the W/E 21st or 28th (or any day in between) and perhaps offer my services as a 'guide'/'Simon of Cyrene' from the steps of the Cathedral in Puy as far as Cahors (I suppose) unless I keep going this time. In the past few years I have learnt that...

    Temperatures in July and August

    I've read about the heat in the summer months. I'm wondering what the actual average temperatures are during the hot months. Are we talking 90's (Fahrenheit ) or triple digits? Thanks so much.
