greetings I did this route in 2011 I found it extremely lonely yet very well marked in most places. I stayed at church gite the first day and second day in Arundy at priest;s house. Third day was in Oleron St. Marie beautiful pilgrim hostal. from there on was okay I only went as far as Mauleon due to my walking companion had to meet his wife in SJPP. plan to do it next year again...very enjoyable and peaceful.
