Our Hands of Friendship

Crestview and its Okaloosa County, Florida, neighbors partner through Sisters City International with the congenial island city of Noirmoutier-en-l’Île and its neighboring commun-

ities on the island of Noirmoutier off the west coast of France. Noirmoutier Mayor Dr. Noël Faucher once said, "It does no good to reach out a hand in friendship unless there is a hand waiting to receive it." Since 1995 our communities have gladly reached out our hands—and arms— to one another.

A Journey Into Noirmoutier's Heritage

Our Noirmoutrin friends will welcome us September 7-18, 2017, for a visit that coincides with the European Union's annual Journeys of Patrimony, a celebration of heritage and tradition. You're invited to become a member of the Crestview Area Sister City Program and  experience the rich history and heritage of Noirmoutier with us. Side trips include Nantes or St. Nazaire, with optional overnight excursions to the Puy du Fou history park and Tours and the châteaux of the Loire Valley. Click on "2017 Trip" for more information.
