Who are we ?

A Châtellerault we welcome you as a friend

We simply offer you the opportunity to enter the more everyday aspect of our city, with its markets, shopping centre, bistros…

During this walk, inhabitants of the Châtelleraudais, “greeters”, lovers of their city, will be happy to share with you the charm of unusual places and to tell you the great and small stories of their city. This visit that we will make with you, in one of the city’s neighbourhoods and in the surrounding area, will take into account your tastes, interests and pace.

We are volunteers, members of the International Greeters Association. We want to introduce visitors to “our Châtelleraudais”, as we would for friends. We are neither interpreter-guides nor qualified lecturers, but curious inhabitants, passionate about the richness of our region, who speak several languages, and who want to meet and welcome people from outside Vienna or France.

During the walk, the “greeter” will walk with you in the streets of a district that he loves for the richness of its past or for its architecture, its markets, its cafés, its craftsmen or its artists…

What more does your greeter bring you: He or she will share with you his or her experiences and anecdotes; will tell you his or her good addresses; and of course will be happy to answer questions that will help you better understand our beautiful region. Moments that we hope will remain unforgettable for you.

What do our visitors say

Oct2018
Visite d’amiens correspondant à nos demandes (histoires et légendes de la ville, façades de la ville). Visite documentée. Michèle a fait de cet visite un échange agréable. La visite historique était ponctuée d’anecdoctes. Nous avons été enchantés de son intervention qui nous a donnée les clés de l’histoire d’Amiens et de sa richesse.

Our day with Alix in Amiens was very fun. Sometimes communication was a bit of a challenge, but we managed to make ourselves understood on both sides. We saw and learned of things we would not have had we been on our own. Alix put in a lot of effort to be sure that we learned as much as possible about Amiens. We would recommend this program to anyone who visits.
