6 Reasons to Take the Potty Poche App With You to the South of France

If you love to travel but like to know where the nearest public conveniences are, then the Potty Poche™ app is for you. It is the brainchild of American writer Bluette Matthey, who lives in Béziers, in the Hérault department of Occitanie, with her husband and cats.  Here are six reasons to pop the Potty Poche in your pocket when you’re travelling around the south of France… 

1. On the go and in the know 

Designed especially for people on the go who have to go, this travel guide/public toilet navigator shares must-see destinations in the Provençal departments of the Vaucluse, Alpes-Maritimes, Bouches-du-Rhône, Var and Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, as well as Languedoc-Roussillon and, if you’re planning a bit of a European tour, Tuscany in Italy. It is packed with information about places to go when you are out and about.  

2. Tantalising Provence and Côte d’Azur 

Discover perched villages in the Alpes-Maritimes, such as Gourdon and Peillon, which, nestling atop a cliff, give a whole new meaning to ‘perched’. Admire the vast fields of lavender, and explore the haunts and homes of 20th-century artists alongside some favourite film locations, and discover some wonderful market towns, including the incomparable Aix-en-Provence and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (where Princess Diana once bought a home).

3. Fascinating Languedoc-Roussillon 

In Languedoc-Roussillon the app focuses on seaside villages, Cathar sites, Plus Beaux Villages de France, festivals and other happenings. Et bien sûr, the app includes trips to some popular market towns in the region, notably Pézenas and Céret, a former enclave for 20th-century artists. Then there’s Béziers, one of France’s oldest cities and a treasure trove of history and legend, which hosts the Feria festival every August. And that’s just for starters!

4. Public toilet finder 

Potty Poche lists all the public toilet facilities in the venues included on the app, giving directions, ratings for cleanliness and amenities, map and GPS information along with pictures of the toilets. Each facility has been inspected and updated by Bluette Matthey personally. (Whew!)

5. Enjoy a smoother journey 

Potty Poche gives valuable, engaging information about each venue and includes many additional helpful links, including tourist office details. 

6. Go on – spend a penny! 

For only $0.99 (USD) per region, you can fearlessly venture forth, armed with the app to get you there every time! Available on the App Store and Google Play. 

If you can’t wait for your next trip to France, whet your appetite by checking out Bluette Matthey’s YouTube channel where she visits beauty spots and sites of interest in the south of France and Tuscany.
