Hi, I have a bit of a conundrum. My normally active wife if very under the weather. She does not climb but we normally head off for some fairly long treks. This i s just not going to happen this summer. Looking for some suggestions for reachable areas of Europe, probably France where we could drive to and where there are sports crags that I could climb on fairly easily. Not worried about hooking up with strangers-looking at Languedoc area but be interested if anyone has any reomendations of either other areas or prehaps more specific places. I know it is going to be hot but being able to get out for atleast part of the day on a regualr basis would be a huge basis. If any of the ex-pats on here know of specific gites/apartments that might be available for the first three weeks of August please let me know.

Cheers

Rich

In reply to woolsack:

Thanks Col - I'm afraid we're fully booked though.

To the OP - You could try Ollies place - http://www.climbfrance.com/

Buis is great in summer - we climb all year round as theres quite a few north facing crags.

Ubrieux in the morning.
Dentelles on the Gigondas side
NF of St Leger
Top end of La Baleine after 4pm
Tarendol til about 2pm
and of course the best crag in the area Malaucene is in the shade until about 2pm on the top tier and 3pm on the lower tier.

In reply to Richard Popp: You could try the campsite in Buis (Fontane d'Hannibal) they have chalets for rent and permanent tents with all the kit in (fridge, cookers, beds etc)
