Bistrots de Pays
Is a local coffee producers network, which are usually some of the last establishments which are still open, and therefore have a very important social cohesion component.
In the QUI SOMMES NOUS part, there is an explanation of the conditions to become a part of this network, which are to be located in towns with a population under 2.000, to be open all year long, to sell basic products, or to have local tourist information.
From this network there is also access to the RANDO BISTROT options, which involves linking a local guided route with a meal in one of the BISTROT DE PAYS.
Another form which is located in the French part of Flandes (near the frontier city of Dunkerque) is «Cafés Rando», located in rural areas and near to the paths used by hikers or cyclists.
