Twin Town Visit to Bagnols-sur-Ceze (France)

A group from Newbury will be visiting Bagnols to take part in a weekend of activities.  Visitors from our other twin and associated towns will also be present.

Visitors will travel together and stay with host families from the Bagnols Twin Town Assocation.




Feltre, Newbury's newest twin, is a gem. Nestling in the foothills of the Dolomites,it offers easy access and breathtaking alpine scenery.

It can be reached easily and cheaply by air, with a regular Ryanair service to Treviso. Other airlines fly direct to Venice Marco Polo, mid from there, it is a 90 minute train journey to the town itself.

Feltre has the lot: beautiful architecture, plenty of culture in the form of museums, galleries and arts verities, and a friendly population. There aren't many hotels, but the Nuovo, a family-run establishment, is clean, friendly and inexpensive, as well as being centrally positioned.

Take advantage of cheap car hire from Treviso and explore the province of Belluno, with its opportunities for riding, sailing, climbing, walking, skiing, fishing, and hang gliding. Or just drive up into the mountains and enjoy breathtaking views from some of the roads where the original 1969 version of The Italian job were filmed.

In and around Feltre, the Roman remains are a must-see, as is the tranquil Sanctuary of Saints Vittore and Corona, a cloistered abbey on top of a hill a short distance outside the town.
