The Walking Party

The Walking Party – private escorted walks since 1996.

Let James lead you on a ramble through France. Like us, he is passionate about good food & wine, and thinks a good holiday should incorporate gentle walking, talking, eating and drinking, as one would do with friends on a weekend break. He loves to share his intimate knowledge of the flora, fauna, history, cuisine and culture of south-west France, but also ventures into Italy in June and into Suffolk (where he used to live) in July.
