Short walks

Walking in France: A walker's view of the Château de Chenonceaux

We prefer undertaking walks of four to six weeks duration, but we appreciate that many people are interested in much shorter walks. Therefore, as we post Jenny’s diaries on this site, we extract from them the best short sections of about a week or less.

One criterion that we use, apart from beauty and interest, is that these short walks must have easy access to public transport at both ends.
