BRITSNÎMES WALKING CLUB
Wednesday 11th April 2018
Wednesday 11th April 2018 Walk commencing at 10:00 am. Meet from 9:45 am.
Around Lussan This walk designed and led by Francis Lagarde is a discovery of a stunning landscape and the village of Lussan which was named in 2016 a: “ Plus beau village de France”
The Aiguillon, a small stream rising near Vallérargues, after a tortuous and quiet course in the Lussan basin, reaches the limestone plateau. For millions of years, it carved out an incredible canyon about 3 km long. We’ll walk along this canyon called “les Concluses”. Then we’ll stroll to the perched village of Lussan and its beautiful 360° panorama.
Lunch venue: Ferme Auberge La table d’Azor Mas d'Azor, 30580 Lussan
Traditional and fresh homemade cuisine cooked on a farm using their own produce. 20 euros all included, To be paid at the end of the meal.
Difficulty: Suitable for all abilities. It is an easy walk, nonetheless a walking stick could be useful. As always you are advised to wear suitable clothing and footwear. Please bring water.
Directions and parking: From both Nîmes and Uzès take the D 979 and fromAlès take the D6 towards Lussan. At the roundabaout just after Vallérargues both roads merge, then turn right on the D 643, you will see the sign “ les Concluses “ drive until you find the car park. This road is a dead end anyway. Please find thereafter the meeting point map.
If you propose attending this walk please let me know by email before the 9th of April : firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 06 79 89 37 83 and give me your mobile number in case we have to call you.
If you don’t receive any acknowledgement of your email (within two days) it means that I didn’t receive it. So please call me.
If you want to stay for lunch, please register as soon as possible as the restaurant needs a forecast of the numbers of guests a week prior the walk.
If we have to cancel the walk for any reason you will be notified by email by 8:00am on the day of the walk.
Francis and I are looking forward to hearing from those who will join the walk.
Please be aware that cancellations less than 24 hours prior to the walk without strong grounds pose major problems for both the restaurant and the walking club. Véronique
