The perfect break for your creative spirit?

Walking...  reading...   writing...  meeting new people, sharing experiences...


Joining Walking With Words for a week in the Cevennes in France.

We've got a wide variety of great walks to share with you, from famous writers' routes to ancient pathways, the trails of myths and turbulent histories. 


But a week with Walking with Words is more than a walking holiday. You'll be tapping into the long, rich tradition of writing by great walkers too.


We invite you to follow their footsteps. Adjust to their pace. Find inspiration in their writing - and for your own writing.


It's a powerful combination - guided walks and creative workshops in some of the loveliest landscape in southern France.


Pick the week that suits you best in 2014.

Dates are open now for booking in the spring and early summer. Or you can book ahead for next autumn if you prefer.


You will be part of a small group,

typically of between six and eight people.

You can join as an individual, or book with friends.


Our base is a spacious 18th century house in

the little town of Florac, at the heart of the

Cevennes National Park.
