Hey all,
Has anyone attended the Fete du Roi in Le Puy? I just realized that my preferred start date falls during the festival, and I am wondering what to expect. Will I be able to find pilgrim accommodation, or should I book ahead? Should I plan to hang around for the festival?

Any input would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Nancy

Since it is never a bad idea to book ahead in Le Puy, even without complicating events, by all means reserve yourself a bed. And since many people will attend the event and then start walking, reserving a bed on your route for the next week would also be advisable.

I don't know about the Fete, but the Market Days in Le Puy come very highly recommended, so I imagine the Fete even more so. Lucky you - enjoy the festivities!

I've read that the usual market day in Le Puy is Saturday.

Looks like I'll be there around that time as well for a departure! A Saturday start with the festival sounds good, as the departure from Le Puy Sunday morning would be good.

A festival near your starting date just means a very large number of people with the same thought. Be sure you reserve your lodgings for the next week or so. Remember the French make reservations for themselves - this is very different from Spain.
