Summer Randonnées

Summer days can be very hot, and randonnée group activities halt in July
and August as the social calendar is filled with fêtes. Venturing out early and
finding a perch for a picnic, we can hike up a steep slope from our village
— soon marvelling at the Mediterranean glistening below, and enjoying a fresh
sea breeze after reaching the highest peaks that form part of the view from the
bergerie of Mas Reste.
