  • At the foot of our Lady of France this cloister is very beautiful and conducive to contemplation, in addition it houses a museum that has a lot of interest... A visit by taking his time...

  • very nice place but very average as for the reception at the level of one of the shops which certainly was closed on January 3 in the morning when that I ventured there to me, only a 'poor' handler was trying to "pester" with his heavily laden wagon, so much so that I offered help which he kindly refused, I asked if it was still possible to sell me a postcard the place was deserted, minus 4 ° has outside, amounts to the building hardly passable roads, and there a female voice as cold as the outside temperature that notifies you without compassion that the store is closed, that is all, no other explanation, thank you Ma'am, your dedication is a pleasure to see, luckily the other shop was much more welcoming with 3 very nice people... I will come back with pleasure in summer This lady I didn't know probably prefer the summer heat!
