I was born in the Black Forest.
After studying languages at Heidelberg University I moved to Spain where I lived for over 20 years.
It was in Spain that I heard about the ‘Camino de Santiago’ for the first time and that one day I decided to set off and do it.
In 2009 I walked from Le Puy to Saint Jean, unaware that things would never be the same again.
I knew right from the start that I wanted to buy a house on the Via Podiensis in France where I could open my own pilgrims’ hostel.
But I did not want to rush into it so I worked at a pilgrims' hostel in Saint Jean for two years. During that time
I learnt a lot about the special needs of pilgrims from all over the world.
A way of harmony, sharing and spirituality in accordance with nature...
Discover the pilgrims’ hostel, its stunning views and the picturesque village of “Montréal du Gers”.
Are you a pilgrim, a walker or just passing through?The hostel is right in the centre of the village, directly on the Way.
