About this book

A companion volume (Walking in Provence - West) covers the Drome Provencal, Vaucluse and Var.

Provence’s sunshine and Mediterranean charm attract many visitors to its coast, yet the area also has much more to offer the walker. The countryside inland boasts a range of scenery from remote mountaintops to spectacular gorges. History is everywhere, in medieval villages, arcaded streets, abbeys, churches and castles.

This guide covers the eastern regions, with its companion volume, Walking in Provence: West, covering the rest of this fascinating and historic landscape. Suitable for all walkers of average fitness levels, the walks are graded for difficulty from short, easy routes to more challenging walks that can include precipitous sections, but no special equipment is needed.

Biography

Janette Norton has lived with her physicist husband, Alan, in the Geneva region for over 30 years, raising four children and working in the marketing field. Her love of mountain walking dates from the time she was a guide in her twenties, and the proximity to her home of the Alps and the Jura has enabled her to continue her passion. Now her family has grown up, she has branched out to walk in other areas of France such as Provence, the Cevennes and the Dordogne. This is Book 1 of the two-volume second edition of her first book, Walking in the Haute Savoie.
