Yannick Filippetto has slightly changed the interior of the store.

The former manager gave the keys to the store to a former straw hut employee.

This year, lovers of frozen pleasures who will pass by Frontignan Plage on the east bank will not find Barbara Minier behind the counter of "L'île à glace". After 16 years at the head of this small institution located in the Bergerie district, the ice house passed the torch to Yannick Filippetto.

The same ice cream maker

After having chained for eight seasons to the famous hut on Aresquiers beach, "Le Spot", as room manager, the young man therefore left this other institution which allowed him to acquire valuable know-how and embark with enthusiasm on a new adventure.
