The woods were... challenging. You seriously have to have a death wish in order to run quickly. There were large holes and crevices that you could fall down if you weren't paying attention or if you slipped. Running was out of the question for the most part, so Ross and I just hiked along mostly. Navigation didn't seem so bad, but that was mostly because we were moving so slowly and stopping frequently. Luckily, we have since run on maps that don't require constant vigilance to ensure you don't fall down a 7 foot hole lined with cliffs.
The place where we are staying, La Fruitière d'Arith, is great. We have breakfast every morning and home cooked dinner every evening. The first night there was a fantastic plate of cheese.

Tomorrow we head to a new map further north and then we plan to spend the afternoon in Annecy, the tourist town by the lake. We even have a sprint map there, so we may get to do some actual running (instead of hiking).
