Tourism and handicap : the Tourist Office enriches its services !

The Tourist Office has been equipped with specific materials allowing to improve the capacities of crossing of most of the not motorized wheelchairs and so offer to their users the possibility of moving on until then inaccessible routes !

To accompany his family or his friends on paths in the uneven cover is not any more an assault course !

The "Module Tout Chemin ®" ( MTC) of the company MagelanThe device "Module Tout Chemin ®" (MTC), registered trademark by the company Magelan, implanted locally, settles easily on the front of your armchair and, by adding him a front wheel of big diameter, multiply by 8 his capacity of crossing !

Desire to leave having a walk by bicycle ? This module also moors in the bike of your accompanying person and allows you to share with him the pleasures of the discovery of the territory.

These devices are proposed in the rent just as much to the tourist clientele in stay that with the local inhabitants. On the basis of price lists in the day, week or more, this equipment will allow the largest number to circulate more freely in town or to the countryside.
