How much does it cost per day?

Not surprisingly, walking is a rather cheap way to get around. The total cost for the two of us has increased only slightly over the last ten years, and is presently around €75 per day, which in 2018 was made up of the following amounts:

Walking in France: Money well spent - a Chablis in Chablis

Money well spent – a Chablis in Chablis

Dinner                                                €34
Coffee                                                €10
Accommodation                                €19
Other expenses                                 €14

In other words, we put our money where our mouth is!

The accommodation cost was a mixture of:

Camping                                     €13/night
Hotels                                         €55/night

Plus we had four free nights in camping grounds, and one night in a gîte for €20.

There really is nothing else to spend money on, unless you want to increase your burden.

In addition, return air fares from Australia were AUS$1,424 each, plus a very well spent $US150 each for extra leg room bulkhead seats on the two long legs of our trip, and all train and bus fares within France came to €88 each.
