How much does it cost per day?

Not surprisingly, walking is a rather cheap way to get around. Taking the year 2017 as a typical example, the average daily cost for the two of us was €70, made up of the following approximate amounts:

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

Money well spent – a Chablis in Chablis


Dinner                                                €35
Coffee                                                €11
Accommodation                                €16
Other expenses                                 €12

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

The accommodation cost was a mixture of:

Camping                                     €14/night
Hotels                                         €63/night

Plus we had seven free nights in camping grounds

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$2,850 each (premimum economy), and all train and bus fares within France came to €114 each.
