Hoping to Walk Geneva to LePuy in Sept 2020

Very excited about researching this Geneva to LePuy route for 2020 in September. Lots of information so far seems to be a bit dated ( 2014-2016 ), hoping someone has updated resources for guidebooks, route suggestions, accommodations, etc. ( yes, I do speak a bit of French which I'm told will be useful if not necessary )
Thank you to all for your assistance advance!

Again, soon as possible!
The guide you really want is the 'yellow Guide' for up to date accommodations. The 2019 is out now, by next September the 2020 should be out. From here:


I also found useful the Topo Guide (with good maps for finding short cuts) but not necessary. Does not come out every year as far as I know, but you can get a 2019 copy here:


I have a blog with pictures of my 2015 walk starting in Geneva here:

I really adored the Geneva route (Via Gebennensis), happy planning!

We walked in May 2018. We used the yellow guide. Our small amount of French was very useful. We had practiced some French for our 2016 camino and also worked on it more for this camino.
You can take a look at our blog if you wish.

Hi Davey, did you use any online maps or know how to access? I plan to also do the route next year. Either in June or mid to late August. Any suggestions. I will get the yellow 2020 guide when it comes out.

At the time no. First I never had a phone with me, plus the route was so well marked all I really needed was the Yellow Guide for accommodation. I did carry the Topo guide for maps just in case a secluded or difficult part had to be got around due to bad weather etc.

Since that Camino I now use maps.me and download a GPX file for the route I am on, and when I walk the Geneva route again I will use that. maps.me is free, you download the maps you need, and don't need internet to access them on your phone. Then download a GPX file into maps.me so it shows the route. Plus maps.me shows you town plans, bars, gites, hospitals, pharmacies etc.

Hope that helps
Davey

I just finished the Geneva route in Oct; the iPhiGenie app is invaluable: has all the GR routes throughout France. The paid version has topo detail down to the 166m level.
