Bonjour, Elsabe.
Here are a couple of websites to help with planning:

Le voie du Piemont is sweet in May. There will be wild orchids and butterflies along the trail and an abundance of poppies, herbs and flowering grasses. The meadows are verdant and the hillsides are noisy with song birds chortling and scrapping...

When I set off in the first week of May, 2017 there were few other pilgrims for company. Until Lourdes I met just 4. They were following le Chemin de St Jaques whereas I followed the GR 78. Sometimes we met in the evenings. After Oloron-Sainte-Marie I hiked up to Le Col du Somport then followed El Camino Aragones. On the Spanish side of the Pyrenees the vegetation and geology altered somewhat. Hope this helps....

Cheers
Lovingkindness
