HI we are coming to France for 8 weeks and will have contents in our pack which we will like to send on to SJPP from Le Puy en Velay. We did this in Pamplona and sent to Santiago de Compostelanin 2011. Checking the French postal system I see we can use the Poste Restante but they state they only hold the parcels for two weeks. We would need them to be held 4 to 5 weeks.

Looking forward to any useful information.

Do you need the items in SJPP or in the next place you go from there, perhaps Bayonne or Biarritz?

Perhaps you might email the Pilgrim Office in SJPdP and ask if you could have your package sent there to be held for you.
Here is their email--
