    Excellent office, very friendly welcome, golden information, a magical place full of history in a magnificent building, incorporating a very interesting museum on the customs of the village, some of which are still in vogue. Upstairs, a large room serves as a temporary exhibition for some local artists, illustrating the shelves of a small and charming library.

    A warm welcome and explanations of the places to visit with a room to visit free of charge dedicated to the papogay festival, (a centuries-old tradition which takes place every year in May in Rieux Volvestre) a small museum and upstairs an exhibition of pretty paintings.

    We are delighted! We have just attended the Papogay festival and had an unforgettable day. The soul of the village is revealed and everyone participates in costume with dance music, archery etc... It's difficult to describe this extraordinary and exotic atmosphere, you have to come... Lisa and Arthur welcome you magnificently at the tourist office and very generously provide lots of information and brochures! We, who come from Bayonne and its famous festivals, think it would be right to spread this information: COME COME TO THE PAPOGAY FESTIVAL (every year it is the 1st weekend of May)
