Leaving Saint Cyprien for Belves
The people who mark the trail are amazing, this is another mark you may see just to clear up doubt.
Attack of the trees!!!!!
The town of Belves is a sight for sore feet after a very full day of walking
Belves. Town of bells and secret dwellings (13th – 15th century a whole slew of people lived under the castle)
The Gite, our home for the night – Relais Vert. The sheets are for 1-2 nights use and then throw away, they feel like paper towels.
The gite is an old church (complete with cemetery and bell tower) about 3 km from Belves city center.
Walking paths in the area, we are still on GR 36.
View from the gite. Good night Belves. Montferrand-au-Perigord we’ll see you tomorrow. (Note to future guests, the bell tower stops at 10:00, THANK THE LORD.)

Les Eyzies, the starting line for our walk and our hotel information
Our last train from Perigord to Les Eyzies get delayed for hours – No “Train Supreme” for us, we get a taxi
We arrive in Les Eyzies with about an hour of sunlight left to explore
We wake up to a cold morning
Le petit dejeuner
Found the trail – GR 36
Walking to Saint Cyprien
The white and red stripes mark our path
The GR 36 leading us into Saint Cyprien, we’ve finished our first walking day – very easy only about 7 km.
The kids still have tons of energy so we find a playground
Our “hotel” Chez Nanou
The daily laundry
Goodnight from Chez Nanou
