Walking, horseback, boat or a combination of these are likely.
I would also add "hastily" as his biography says he fled.
He and Antoinette fled because of the St. Bartholomew's killings, from what I gather they were at the Dumond estate - might they have gone by boat on the Seine to LeHarve and then to Naarden?
Thank you for your thoughts, I am very appreciative.

Thank you - yes, they did flee!
In Naarden, right now, there is a very old domestic blackberry patch that has gone wild near one of the rear fortifications.  The blackberries are giant and there are many.  Unfortunately I probably won't make it out there this year to get my fill of them.  Maybe Pierre brought them with him in 1572!  :D
How he went to Naarden is not really the question... I can't find a source that confirms his parentage. His alleged father is said to have died in 1528 in Naples, of disease, and without issue.

Sorry... I thought the last names D'Mailly and D'Dumond looked fishy to start with...
