Planning a trip:
Valac, vacances à la carte, is the planning and booking office of La Ligne Verte. We help you planning and booking the right trip.

Our packages start the first day ("day 1") with dinner or, in case of a B&B hotel, with checking in your hotel room for the night. Our packages end the last day after breakfast. So neither the first nor the last day are effective walking or cycling days. Of course the first day you can do a small walking tour and try out the bikes if you rented some and arrived early enough.

So a 7 days package will include 6 overnights and 5 walking or cycling stages.

Besides that, the quality of your holiday is also the service you'll get in the hotels, the food, the transfers of your luggage, support when needed, the most interesting roads and trails, up to date hiking and cycling maps and route descriptions to make your holiday a carefree enjoyment all the way.
