I am planning on walking this path in the last week or two of April. It looks like it is open year round and fairly straight forward long walk/hike. If anyone has done this I would be interested in knowing about some of the accommodations and backup plan.
1 - It looks like there are plenty of bad reviews about the gîtes d'étape, so I am inclined to pass them by and make for a long day. But some of the complaints are about price and there are plenty of Augerge along the way that are near 100euros, which are pretty pricey - more than double some of the gîtes d'étape. What gives, should I be worried?
2 - I am trying to decide for emergency camping - hammock or tarp/bivy? Any thoughts?
thanks - dn
