This year, the tourist office has decided not to print a calendar of events for the two months of summer. Indeed, some events are subject to change until the last moment due to the health situation. In order to provide you with a reliable and up to date programme, we will propose a digital diary which can be consulted here and a paper diary every 15 days available in your tourist offices. Thank you for your understanding.
