Walking Holidays for Women Travellers In the company of women Finding a niche travel experience that worked for her, Biddy Naylor is now having the time of her life and providing fabulous walking holidays for women travellers. By Briar Jensen. “After 25 years of social work I wanted to do something completely different, something more light-hearted and fun,” says Biddy Naylor 57, “and something that would give me the opportunity to travel in the countries I love.” Organising a 50th birthday holiday in Italy for a group of female friends was Biddy’s inspiration. “It was a wonderful way to have a holiday – in the company of other women – and it was very relaxing to have some space from our normal responsibilities. So, in 1998 Biddy resigned from her job and established Valentine Travel, specialising in walking holidays for Australian women in Europe. Walking with women Biddy only markets to Australasian women.

Biddy loves researching new locations for her holidays. France Vacation for Women; Provence Walking Tour; South of France. Traveling to France: Arrival & Departure You should plan to fly into Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris on the morning of April 26, 2014. You will then need to transfer to the TGV high speed train, which is located inside the airport, for a direct TGV to Avignon. The TGV that departs from DeGaulle at 9:51 a.m. will get you to the Avignon TGV station, just outside of the town of Avignon, at 1:09 p.m.

Please note: There are two train stations in Avignon: the TGV station, a 10 minute taxi ride from downtown, and the main station in downtown Avignon. Trains from Paris, other than the TGV, arrive at the main train station. Pick up on April 26 will be at 2 p.m. at the TGV station. If you can’t make that pick up time, you should come a day early to Avignon. For those arriving early and already in downtown Avignon, you can get a taxi for the 10 minute ride back to the TGV station for pick up. Departure and drop off will be at 9:30 a.m. on May 3 at the Avignon TGV station. Holiday Calendar - Walking Women | Walking Women. Walking Vacations and Tours around the world - The Wayfarers.
