Exciting Times!

FAB PO , since it's first meeting on a sweaty June 08 evening in Café des Artistes in Laroque des Alberes, has gone from strength to strength.

Now, with over 100 members, we meet at least once a month, to network, refer business to each other and to plan FAB PO events. Usually a glass of wine or two is involved ( we are in the South of France , after all!!!)

At the moment, we are all pulling together to organise a press trip next week ( 17 to 20 March). We have a group of international journalists visiting the area and are planning on giving them the time of their life.

They will eat in FAB restaurants like Bistrot le Cortal in Vernet les Bains, stay in delux accommodation ( Chai Catalan in Ortaffa and Les Hirondelles in Fuilla) and meet most of the FAB PO team while they are here. Roland Thomas from Fenouilledes Motos is going to take them for a motorcycle ride in the mountains and they will be wined in the award winning Domaine Treloar.

The journalists will tour around with moi ( Karen from the French Tour Co) as we visit the three gorgeous valleys in the region.

Our FAB PO soirée on Thursday 20th March promises to be a great night out in a rooftop bar overlooking the med. There are rumours that Dan Carter might even make an appearance.

  1. Thank you for a great initiative. The term French Anglo Business may indicate an English network, but readers should note that in this case "Anglo" refers to the language, not the nationality. The network is not limited to those whose mother tongue is English, and members are from many countries, including La France. The important thing is the synergy effect of the network, that we all pull together as businesses serving the local community as well as those visiting our beautiful region.
