  • Nice location in the middle of the old town. Lots of brochures and information available, very atentive and helpfull personnel.
  • Very beautiful city VAUBAN. Close to ski resorts and major passes.
  • At the start of my stay for two weeks, I come to ask for information on activities for children. The staff, very pleasantly and with a smile, hand me a brochure in bright colors, but without any real content. After a week I understand that activities in period clothes, fort visits, etc. are proposed but it is too late for registrations. Very disappointed. The children too.
  • Our questions were answered... we asked for information on activities to do and we only got a map as an answer... when we arrived, no response to our "Hello". We had to push the person to talk to us otherwise we would have had no response... luckily the old town is beautiful to visit...
  • Very disappointed with the reception. Two people as hostesses. One of the hostesses was already taken so we were towards the second free (older hostess). Very unpleasant person. We told him that we were there for 3 days and that we wanted information on the city and the surroundings. She gave us a card and goodbye. And for the fair city: here is the plan. (In 1 min it was over)... No information and no desire to share with us the essential places of his beautiful city / region! Very disappointed if she doesn't like to exchange strokes with tourists, she changes jobs because the days must be long...
