Tour to Poitiers versus Sancoins to Varzy for a 4-5 days camino

We are two in our 50s and will do 4-5 days Camino in France end of April.

We need to choose between
1- Tour to Poitiers
2- or Sancoins to Varzy

Can I ask for your help?

Our main concerns are:
1- how well each route above is marked and easy to follow without getting lost or having to find our way in the maps with the risk of getting lost
2- how easy it is in each of the paths to find lodging every 25kms (and are the lodgers open during covid time?).

we would choose the path that has less risk of getting lost or not finding accommodation to sleep each night.

if they were equivalent, which one is wilder and more natural i.e. encounter fewer roads, highways, industrial zones etc?

Thanks!!!!

Tours to Poitiers is fairly gentle walking, but mostly on very minor roads. There are also tracks, quite dry at the moment. Some of it co-incides with the St Martin pilgrimage. Accommodation is not always easy, but hotels are mostly open at the moment. Feel free to PM me.

What i do not really understand is whether in either or both of these tours 1- Tour to Poitiers 2- or Sancoins to Varzy, the marks to follow the track are perfect and we need no map nor GPS tracking and online maps, or whether we have to rely upon maps & GPS ... which one of the two is well market , if any.
