The GR221 is beautiful but a word of warning - think carefully when planning your route. The stages differ significantly and are generally steep hikes up and down taking much longer than you might initially think. I carried a 10KG backpack and hiked 40 miles...More

Nice stone and dirt tracks most of the time. Very well marked, never in doubt where to go. Very good refuges with good food, (breakfast and dinner), and friendly staff. Will definitely recommend it.
