This guidebook, half of a two-volume set, is intended for motorists who want to tour western Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon by car and enjoy some superb walks en route. The drives have been described in such detail that there is no need to make constant reference to a map. The walks selected — all set in areas of great natural beauty and historical interest — are those the authors believe offer the greatest sense of satisfaction for the effort involved. These are not tough GR routes, but mostly circular walks suitable for moderately fit people. There are also restaurant recommendations for each tour. The book is also ideal for those taking city breaks to places like Carcassonne, Perpignan, Nîmes, Marseille, Montpellier with the budget airlines.
Area covered: Beginning at Aix-en-Provence, you travel west via the Lubéron and Mont Ventoux to the great Roman cities and the Pont du Gard. After forays north to the Ardèche, the Tarn and the Cirque de Navacelles, head south through Hérault to Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi. Crossing the Corbières and the Land of the Cathars, you reach the foot of Canigou, holy mountain of the Pyrenees.
Best months for walking: generally March to June and September and October, but most of the walks described can be enjoyed throughout the winter months.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
