OK I 'fess up - I caught the train to Pibrac then walked on to L'Isle Jourdain.
Hi Jules,
Could do the same mate but we had fun one day in Bordeaux following the arrows,
Will depend on the time frame ,
We will be trying to get to St Palais and then rejoin the GR65 to St JPP and onwards.
Will head right near Oloron- Ste-Marie
We missed St Palais when walking from Le Puy and we have been told we should try and get there
Any thoughts about this little detour?

I walked from Toulouse the first week in September with just the CSJ guide. There were a couple of places that I had to stop, look and re-read the guide. I never got lost and was glad I walked out instead of taking the train.

Sorry, can't help you there.

I'm not familiar with St Palais but, of course, I've now looked it up and am wondering why I didn't know about it before. Will be interested in hearing what you think of it.

I took the bus to Pibrac and then walked to Legueven where I stayed at the Maison st Jacques, run by the Mairie and volunteers. it looked pretty dull otherwise and the route is not particularly attractive until after at least Isle Jourdain.

I took the CSJ guide and the Miam Miam Dodo which was good for lodgings and other facilities and occasionally the basic maps. Sometimes a proper map would have been useful so you could consider the Topo Guide. Mostly the route was marked but not always very clearly and as there are so few other people walking it it is reassuring to have a map to check.

Why is St Palais unmissable? I have walked through there but it wasn't particularly spectacular!

Stay also with Lilias and Andreas at La Grange, and Chris and Marco at St Criq
