The 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.

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
from Alès 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 “

Francis and I are looking forward to hearing from those who will join the walk.
