Do you want to enjoy a different type of hike? One full of lovely places, delicious treats and learning about local culture?  Then join me on this hiking day through some of the most mesmerizing olive oil fields in Breil. And unveil all the beauty this place has to offer.

Breil is a charming former commune in the western part of France. It is located in the Maine-et-Loire department. Due to its location and rich land, many species inhabit this place.

This magical place is stunning all year round. But the spring and autumn bring a special glow to these lands. Spring turns them into green and alive fields, with flowers inundating each path with their exquisitely intoxicating scents. And autumn covers everything with shades of color that can’t compare in beauty even with the most skilled painter’s work.

Also, one of the most emblematic trees of the Mediterranean region inhabits this place, the olive tree. This hike combines walking through marvellous places and discovering new ones. One of the places we can visit is a local olive farm. The farm is not only lovely, it also offers some of the most delicious local products that we can taste. Also, we’ll encounter Carla and Frédéric, two olive farmers and proud growers. So they’ll share their passion for nature and the exquisite things they have, olive oil, olive paste, pies, homemade juice and other treats.

There are many options on this hike. I want to make sure we cover everything you want to see and do. So I’ll be taking into careful consideration your expectations and desires. If you want to join this adventure send me a request. I promise you’ll have a wonderful time in Breil.

If you want a winter adventure, I also guide this Snowshoe Tour in Terre Rouge Lakes, France.

About the guide

Nature is for me a fabulous field of investigation . Colors, scents, sounds are always present and reveal us so many sensations.
My hometown is Nice on the French Riviera and I explore my region from the Mediterranean shores to the highest peaks of the Mercantour National Park. In the summer time on foot, and in the winter with snowshoeing.

I am looking forward to guiding you in my region, sharing the vision of chamois, marmots and ibexes, on the tracks of wolves, and with a golden eagle in the sky.

Richard delivered exactly what I was hoping for. The choice of route suited me perfectly; he fitted in with my timelines which was important to me and the cherry on top was that he was a delight to walk with and chat to for 3 hours. If I was here a little longer, I’d do another one and definitely will when I come back. Thank you ☺️
