Go to “le dernier bar avant la fin du monde” where you can share a board game with people, which gives you a good escuse to start out a conversation. They also give events several times during the week. It can be planned games or discussion group or lectures. Focused usually on science fiction or geeky stuff, but goes perfectly with the atmosphere of the bar. You feel like on a mission in a submarine. I’d recommand this place if you’ re into geeky games.
We recommand taking a bike tours. It ll be more fun and you ll be more likely to find people travelling by themselves or people seeking social interactions.
Or what about a van trip in france taking you the whole day. It Will definately allow you to get acquainted with the french guide and the little group you’re with.
