Open all year round, our the Tourist Office offers rich documentation, a quality welcome et its ticket office for tourist sites and the cultural season. In the Pays des Achards, the Tourist Office also has a very strong link with the inhabitants and we are proud to participate in the animation of our territory !
But who is behind all these services?
Here are our magicians, our dreamers, our travelers at heart who juggle between a thousand files to concoct a perfect stay for you and meet your needs!

The ladies of the shadows
You won't come across them at the Tourist Office and yet they are so important to us!
Our Director Marion coordinate it “Tourism and Culture Pole” in the Land of Pickles. We work hand in hand with the cultural service and the Pays des Achards library network to offer you even more dreams!
Always enthusiastic about new ideas, even the most eccentric, Marion is our link with the elected officials of the territory and our “great” project leader.
Do you leave one of our concerts with a smile on your face? You don't suspect everything Laëtitia, from the cultural department, did for you! She selected the artists a year in advance, played taxi to pick up the musicians at the station, served their meals and took the singer's broken heel to the shoe repair shop at the last minute! In short, it is our alchemist behind the scenes !
A fine connoisseur of live shows, she also programs our summer events and children's shows, to make you vibrate throughout the year!
