Hello all,
I am seriously considering walking from Le Puy to Conques (maybe Figeac) and then training to SJPP to continue on the Camino Frances.
My flight gets into CDG on a Sunday afternoon (5pm) and so I am not sure how to go about reaching Le Puy without delays and high accommodation prices in Paris.

I have looked into air prices from CDG to Lyon and they seem pricey, so taking a train seems the wisest option. Is there a gite you can recommend near the station in Lyon?
(I may be arriving rather late).
I know the Le Puy Way is a truly beautiful walk and so am wondering whether I can dream this into a realtiy on a modest budget.

Thank you kindly in advance!

Marji,

Try this site in English for hostels in Lyon. >>http://www.hostelworld.com/findabed.php/ChosenCity.Lyon/ChosenCountry.France. There is also a handy map reference.
Bon voyage and Buen camino,

PS. Conques is extraordinary !!

Additionally,http://www.hotels.com lists quite a variety of hotels in the $100-150 range near downtown. Check the name of your train station, and consult the map on the site.

checking at www. booking.com i found several hotels near Lyon Part-Dieu with prices around 60 euros as f.i. Hotel Athena Part- Dieu 50 m from the station. When do you start from Le Puy? I will do the same route to Figeac and from there to Hendaye to walk the north to Santander.
