The title says it all really. I hope to walk this route in May next year, and when I walked it in 2008 there was no where to stay between Lescar and Oloron. Does any one know if this has changed? I am older now and less fit, and some shorter stages have a certain appeal!

I walked from Lescar to Santiago in 2016. I spent the first night at Lacommande. It wasn't exactly by choice, as I'd hoped to get to Oloron. However, there was a narrow path after Artiguelouve signposted through some trees that ended up at a broad track with no obvious way straight on (apparently a T-junction) and no arrows. I turned right and ended up in Arbus. I asked for directions and was sent back to the T junction. Fortunately I met a cyclist who knew the area and he told me to carry straight on from where I'd emerged from the narrow path onto the broad track. Hidden among the bushes and trees on the side of the broad track at what I'd thought was a T-junction, I found a narrow track which was the way I needed to go. As I had wasted several hours being lost, I was not able to reach Oloron that night. The auberge in Lacommande is next to the church. It is very well appointed. I hope you have better luck than I did!

Lacommande has four beds and no food. It has a microwave so bring nourishment with you.

Thanks for your reply! Was there a hospitalero/caretaker on site, or do you need to find some one to let you in?

My memory is a bit hazy on that. I think that there was a note on the door (in French -- in which I'm not fluent) saying to go to a nearby house and knock on the door. I think I did that, but got no reply. I then went to the nearest house I could find which was quite some way away and asked there. The person there drove me back to the first house and somebody came to the door and let me in to the auberge. So not on site, exactly, but very close. I was the sole occupant and I was left undisturbed.

We stayed at Lacommande last year. There are 5 beds in the dormitory plus stretchers that can be put up in the kitchen. The kitchen has an oven as well as microwave. You can buy cheeses and snacks at the winery across the road. They also will do a wine tasting for you.
There were 7 of us staying there.
The hospitalero came around early to let us in as she had heard there were pilgrims in town.
