The town of Bulle has everything to recommend it. Its protected environment and untouched natural surroundings offer visitors a bucolic setting conducive to relaxation and sports, in summer as well as winter.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
