Wherever you see the "C'est Beau Ici" sign, pop in and say "bonjour" to the team in the local tourist office or at the hotel reception desk. You will find an English speaking person and helpful staff!
You’ll find friendly faces, waiting to share their passion for the area and to give you all the advice you need to make your holiday a real success. They will speak to you in English, give you information in English and even help you with problems that are not necessarily related to tourism like your health, your car and communication in French!​
