The last weeks were very busy with project meetings.
All together, we hosted four meetings here in Fitou:
- the Etrust project group
- a smaller group which came together to write a new project proposal
- the kick-off meeting for places2b
- the final meeting for the doing2learn project.
In particular I would like to mention the places2b project meeting as this was the start of a two years project with the aim to write a regional tourist guide and initializing discussion round tables about the development of tourism in our region. We had the opportunity to introduce our aims to local stakeholders from the Fitou administration board. All were very interested in participating and supporting the project idea and I really hope that we will be able to involve many Fitounais in this project to make it to an exceptional experience for everybody.
It was the first time that we hosted meetings here in Fitou and we have been very exited to welcome all together 31 people from seven European countries.
It was also the first time, that the Fitou Office du Tourisme, in person, Carine, made short guided tours through Fitou in English language. She did it with bravour and a lot of charme!
By the way, we did a lot to support the local business. The people stayed at l’Abri du vent and at GÎTES DE FRANCE, Fitou, we had delicious lunch and dinner at the Chateau de Fitou, Le toit vert and at the Moulin de Fitou. And Josy from Fitou taxi brought some people to the airport.
Unforgettable remainthe introduction in the art of wine making at Domaine Garrigo and Domain Revelh.
Special thanks to Susan from La Chapelle and to Joanna from Le toit vert. They offered us their exceptional meeting places!
