Chanaleilles or Le Sauvage?

Camino(s) past & future
Every year, since 2000. Most times portuguese camino also twice the french camiño. Two time Le Puy .
Hi everyone
What will be better, walk from Sauges to Le Sauvage and Le Sauvage to Saint Alban or stop at Chanaleilles instead? What about goog gites in this area?
Thanks a lot

yes
There were two gites in Chanaleilles when I went through. Both were nice (we stayed in the one up by the church). Le Sauvage also is nice. It is a large stone building and more festive and communal. If you want to be with other pilgrims, it is probably a better choice.

I loved Le Sauvage. It is run as a cooperative by local farmers. They supply the produce for meals. Also great views.

Depends a bit on the spring in your legs. The climb up to the crest was fairly demanding, for me. After the crest, it's all downhill to St Alban.

Yes, it is a communal meal, very good and one of the most social meals we had on this route. We had a great night there. There was also a free washing machine and dryer there which was very handy as we had walked in freezing rain all afternoon.

Yes. They cook. And they do it well!

Definitely Le Sauvage. It was one of our magical nights. The food was all local and delicious (and made and served family style), and you are supporting a local farming cooperative by staying there.

Le Sauvage definitely. Have stayed there twice and both times were excellent.
