Eco-friendly action

Each visitor should be as free as the next to enjoy all the riches of the château. To make this vision a reality, an across-the-board policy involving all castle staff has been implemented. This touches on a wide range of fields and therefore directly involves various departments at the château. Everything from visitor reception services, staff training, physical and cultural accessibility issues at the château, marketing and publicity and pricing strategies are concerned. Even so, more improvements need to be made in these areas. Some strategies for improvements will be considered and developed as part of the programme of cultural events and the ongoing restoration work being carried out on the château. What's more, if it is to maintain both its innovative streak and its status as the example to follow in the field of accessibility, the château will now have to set off on a new course with the wholehearted adoption of the concept of 'universal design'.
