Walk, Breath, Admire! 5-day Self-guided Walking Holiday in the Clarée Valley

5 days to explore the Clarée valley independently and at your own pace

Do you only have a few days free to get away from it all into the Great Outdoors, to finally get a real breath of fresh air? This is the trip for you!
Five days of self-guided walks, with all the information and maps you will need, to explore the mountains. You choose the routes and go at your own pace.
We provide a guidebook you can take everywhere with you, giving all the routes and paths, as well as telling the story of the Clarée valley, Névache, and it surrounding peaks...

At the end of the day, you can return to the hotel for some well-earned R&R in our Spa with Sauna and Jacuzzi, and enjoy a revitalising massage, before sampling some gourmet cuisine, courtesy of our chef, Eddy...

We are available every evening to give advice and tips on routes for the next day's walks.
