Vézelay route

The Vézelay Route (in French: "Voie de Vézelay") is about 900 km long. 
From Vézelay there are two main routes: via Nevers and via Bourges. These come together after almost 300 km in the village of Gargilesse.
Our hostel is located directly on the route via Nevers.

The Vézelay Route is a relatively quiet route, with simple but sufficient facilities, small-scale accommodation (hostels managed by Confraternities of Saint James, municipalities, religious institutions and private persons), and home hospitality ('by pilgrims for pilgrims').

Tour de Vézelay

The Tour de Vézelay is a 140 km circular walk, from Vézelay and back, inspired by old and new pilgrimage routes. Our hostel is located directly on this Tour and on some shorter variants.
