SEASON 2023 CLOSED
We have closed after a relatively busy season 2023. We are very happy with the reviews and many compliments we received from our pilgrim guests. In 2024 we will open on Saturday 6 April and you can make your reservations by e-mail. Until next year.
The “Accueil Pèlerin” was founded by Pilgrims and is now still operated by Pilgrims. It has the ambition to create an atmosphere were pilgrims can share their experiences and life-stories and can recover for the long journey ahead to Santiago de Compostela or Rome. One of the unique elements is the joint cooking and eating. Generally vegetarian meals are prepared with fresh ingredients from our own biological gardens. The large garden with scenic views and the yoga and meditation room given ample space to relax and in case of bad weather there is a large living room with fireplace to warm-up after a day of traveling. Camping is possible when required. At the Le Coeur du Chemin Dutch, French, German and English is spoken.
THE ACCEUIL OFFICIALLY OPENED
On Friday 19th may the Acceuil Le Coeur du Chemin was officially opened by the mayor of Prémery and the President of the Association de Amis en Pèlerins de la voie de Vézelay.

The nearby town has a large Carrefour supermarket. When required we will bring you there to do some shopping.
WHAT ARE THE COST PER NIGHT
The “Accueil Pèlerin” is operated on the donativo principle. Donativo means that every pilgrims contributes, financially or otherwise, according to their possibilities.
This should make it possible for everybody to do a pilgrimage, independent of their background or what their situation is in life. Together we maintain and support affordable accommodation and food along the routes especially in the rural areas of France.
An indication for the cost per night per person to operate the donativo and prepare the meals is 30 euro. Any donations above will help us to further improve support along the chemin.
