  1. Hello
    We booked since early November 1 room in the hotel for 2 nights to attend the feast of St Cochon.
    When I looked at that time with information concerning this event on the site of the tourist office, nowhere stated that he had booked the meal. Today I call for more information and it tells me that it is full.
    It just sucks and I am very disappointed.
    I was a joy to return to Besse on this occasion….. The joy is gone.
    Thank you.

    Happy holidays to you.

  2. Friendly and good child. Still as easy to use and above all very close to our current desires to live between boyfriends and girlfriends without taking the cabbage. Very good atmosphere that deserves more publicity at the national level, even if this year we count on Nicolas Doze of Betty to publicize this event very French and charged with a sense of a France that many regret today.
    Thanks again to my friend Serge, at Vero, and Juju for this wonderful moment. Strongly 2017 and congratulations again !

  3. Hello I would like to know the date of the holy pig for the year 2019 I deal with a club and some of my leaders attending your party so I have to organize a festival in January that's why I need to advance the date thank you
