Hello friends, I am looking at routes to take this spring - from early April to mid/late May 2018 and can't decide between the Le Puy route and the Arles route. Would be grateful for any thoughts. Thanks, Steve.

Le Puy is my choice. Will be walking from Arles in September this year, but have done the Le Puy route twice. It is beautiful.

Have not walked the Arles route, but agree that Le Puy, especially the early parts, is spectacularly beautiful. It goes through some very quiet (i.e. depopulated) areas, so some forward planning (e.g. you may not find a cafe/restaurant/grocery open on Sunday or Monday) but also some lovely villages and small towns. I will be doing it again, DV.

Thanks for the input Glenshiro.

le puy is more beautiful, in my opinion. easter holidays are especially busy on its first and most popular part to conques. check the weather conditions as it may snow even in may!

arles from st guilhelm-le-désert to castres is also very nice. and the part from oloron into spain, of course.
