One of the very best guides we have come across to an interesting selection of walks in southern France. The sketch drawings of routes are superb, and true to the local IGN maps. Occasionally, the guidance has been overtaken by changes to the landscape, but this can be overcome by remembering to carry the IGN for the area.

I started reading with a bias towards this volume as Cicerone Guides have served me well over 30 years of walking extensively in France and the Alps. My first Cicerone guide was Andrew Harper's 'Tour of Mont Blanc' which I was unable to fault and so they have been by companion on many trips in the mountains including the GR5 and GR54 and have never disappointed. Having read the guide, I have no doubt that I shall find 'Walking in Provence' as invaluable as its predecessors.

Invaluble Guide For Walking Enthusiasts 13 Nov 2005
By Karen Stern - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Used this book on a 10 day break from New York City in October. We were yearning for some good day hikes, great food and wine, and an authentic feel for the region. This book helped steer us to all three. We did three walks from the book: Le Cousson (our favorite of the three), North Side of Luberon (entirely covered by mist the day we did it), and La Gambade (Dentelles de Montmirail). The color photos from almost every walk, detailed and interesting walk descriptions, and excellent directions for navigating trails with varying degrees of sign-posting were all very useful. This book is small enough to tote around with you daily, has great tips on town highlights and where best to base yourself for walking, and enticing walks with great, detailed descriptions. I wished we had more time to try more of the walks! The small maps for each walk are only somewhat useful--offshoots of the trail are barely indicated, which can be confusing. Also, we are two moderately fit 30 year-olds, and we found some of the walks a little more vigorous than suggested by Janette. Our times to do each walk were pretty close to those suggested in the book. We stop to take a lot of photos and gawk at views, so in general we erred on the side of taking longer to do each walk than Janette indicates (but not by much). We also relied heavily on "Best Of Provence," a great, general, short-and-sweet guide book for the region. Thanks for a wonderful, unique guide, Janette!

Superb hiking info for Southern France 3 Dec 2007
By Rune Zelow Lundquist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We have a secondary home in Provence, and have already used another hiking book by the same author, namely for the Savoy mountain area. That book is full of tempting descriptions of hiking suggestions. The one we followed, was a real adventure, and we got such a wonderful view of the Mont Blanc mountain range that we already decided to follow several other of the author's suggestions. The descriptions are very clear, with a good drawing of the trail, plus useful advice and comments. Since we mostly walk in our own region, Provence, we just ordered the present book for this area, and have already got several ideas of nice trips to make. Being hiking addicts, it is important to have really useful hiking info, and we have never seen any better than the info provided by this author.

fine book for day hikes only - no multiday itineraries 31 Dec 2010
By JPH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fine book as far as it goes, but if you're looking for multi-day itineraries, such as village to village walks, you won't find them within these covers. For a good selection of longer itineraries (as well as single day walks), try the excellent "Walking in France" by Gillian and John Souter.
