Camino Frances (2019)
Hello there,

I'm planning to walk a part of the Camino Frances in the beginning of September. I found a route planner where I can see distance between areas/towns. I'm a bit concerned if these places will provide albergues that are open. My plan is to go from Astorga to Santiago. rougly 270km:

Astorga
Rabanal del Camino
Riego de Ambrós
Fuentes Nuevas
Pereje
La Faba
Fonfría
Samos
Barbadelo
Portomarín
Palas de Rei
A Peroxa (Boente)
Salceda
San Paio
Santiago de Compostela

I'm curious if these stops are available? Any recommendations are appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi @Okapi and welcome here!

Rest assured , you will have no problems finding an albergue or other lodgings in these places. Beginning of September is still " high season " on the Francès so you will be ok!

Maybe you already know about Gronze?
Very good website to give you more detailed information.


Happy preparations!

They will be open. Avoid Os Boente in Boente (in my opinion). Have fun!:)

Astorga? Such a shame you will be missing David at his place just before Astorga! Such a wonderful man!

Gronze.com is a great resource for seeing where there are places to stay. For example, it shows that Riego de Ambros has a small alberque and a Pension, but El Acebo (the town right before) and Molinaseca (the town right after) have many more choices.

I keep seeing reports that David has moved on. I stopped at his place in 2010 and again in 2016, and marveled at his generosity and tenacity, as well as the many changes he had made over that time.

I hope he's well. I always enjoy my brief stay to chat with David.
Not surprised he needed to take a break from it all !

You will not have a problem finding a bed on that route. Will still be busy as many people choose September to avoid the crowds of the holiday months!

20181012_131947.jpg20181012_131947.jpgthis is who was managing it Oct 2018 while the other (Dave I guess) went on camino, as he told us.. an Italian fellow, interesting character... very interested for feedback on the soup he made. he loved my sister for honestly telling him it needed more salt and for washing her cup. he named her supermom for doing so.

Distance Planner
I used this link to quickly search / recalibrate distances...by clicking city/town name on left, new distances to reach subsequent towns appear on right. I didnt have to do math..it was particularly helpful to plan 2 days .. 3 ...4 days out .. to avoid unexpectedly creating undesirable distances.And Gronze for more detailed info incl. accommodation.

For more re David re recent 2018 dates see https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/davids-refreshment-stand-before-astorga.48584/

Note this happy news dated April 20, 2019

When I passed by in June the Italian was setting up early morning. My understanding is the David is gone for good.

Hiya Okapi, I'm doing more or less the same route in September and have booked places in advance the whole way without any problems through Booking. com
