Walk 7 - Sainte Alvere walking and hiking route


Walk Instructions

From the carpark turn left and walk back to the main road. Turn right and immediately left again. Follow this small road across the Louyre and then rising. When you arrive upon a built-in cave in a stone wall, turn right and follow a narrow path. Go straight on between properties and, further on, fields. When a track joins the path from the right, go on straight on a grassy track (green marks)

1) In the woods, go straight on until you arrive at a crossroads of big tracks, just after a house. Turn right, and after about 150m turn left into a smaller track (that can be muddy) between fields. When arriving in a chestnut forest the track becomes deeply rutted. Follow it until you arrive at a small road.

2) Here turn right, into the hamlet of Fromprigonde and through it, passing some ruined houses and slowly descending into the valley. You arrive at a somewhat larger road where it has a sharp turn, go straight on. Just before you arrive here, to get to the Louyre, descend about 50m on a small track to your left; a good spot to picnic in the shade near the small river.

3) Follow the road parallel to the Louyre stream sometimes visible between the trees and bushes that border it. After a pigeonnier (pigeon tower) and some houses it turns left and you cross the Louyre.

4) Cross the D32 (take care, fast driving!) and turn right. Take after about 100m the second road to your left and follow this for about 800m, gently rising through a mostly wooded area, until you arrive at a slightly bigger road.

5) Here turn right. Follow the road for nearly 400m and then turn left at an angle into a broad unhardened track, rising, with firs beside it. At the end turn left (the lane at your right goes towards a house) and then after 100m right.

6) Keep the farm at your right, and after that turn right into a small road that leads you again into the village. On arrival at a larger road (the school is on your right) you cross it and descend a narrow and rather steep alley between houses. When you arrive at the main road (D32) turn right until, after the petrol station, you find again the car park. (If you turn left, you arrive in the centre of the village with some interesting old streets and buildings and a public garden.)
