November 2018 New Tourist Tax - With effect from January 1st 2019 - La Taxe de Séjour- is being introduced. From that date there will be a legal obligation on anyone renting their property to pay this tax. At the time of writing the Tourist Office are unable to confirm exactly how this tax should be paid and to whom - however no doubt clarification will be forthcoming in due course. The new tax is being introduced throughout Pays D'Evian and Vallee D'Abondance. We understand that the tax will be used to improve and help fund aspects of tourism in the region. Tax will be 2% of the rental charge per person, per night to a maximum of €2.30. The tax will not be payable for persons under 18. The following example is given as a guide :- A family comprising 2 Adults and 2 children (aged 19 & 16) renting and staying 7 nights in a non classified property (see footnote) where the weekly rental is €756. * Rental fee €756/ 7 nights = €108 per day/night * Rental fee per night = €108 / 4 occupants = € 27 per night * Tax per night = € 27 / 100x2 (2%) =€ 0.54 * Tax due for this rental = € 0.54 x 7 nights x 3 = € 11.34 Note: there is also a new classification system for rental property details of which are available from the tourist office. We understand that this is a national system and that it is not as yet. compulsory. Thanks to RG for this contribution.   Reported on Pays d'Evian -Vallee d'Abondance web site

November 2018 Le XV Restaurant

LXV new 2018

The Le XV has re-opened with a new look, expanded format with a new relaxing lounge area adjacent to the current restaurant. We understand that there will also be a range of lighter meals/snacks available. Thollon.org wishes Arnaud & Madalene success for the coming winter season. An early visit is scheduled!

Brief review of the summer. The weather was certainly excellent with good temperatures and plenty of sun shine. A good program of events and music organised by the tourist office. The annual fete. The Choumas and Bar L’Ourson continue to be popular with the British. Corinne at The Pooh Bar (L’Ourson) has done a great job with themed evenings, Soiree Barbecue, music from locals and some great bands. Tres bonne ambiance sur Thollon! All on the new terrace.

Michelle, Le Mimies has moved to be in the station. Offering a great breakfast, omelettes, tea, coffee, light lunch. Beer and wine available. A great addition.

The local and visiting Brits enjoyed many activities, the usual boating, the annual petanque competition, swimming at Grand Rive, for more see the News/Blog page.

 Some pictures of summer and some looking forward to the winter season.
