Accessibility

M. Angelo MARTONE


Bisc'Accessible : A joint initiative between the Tourism Office and the L'Handi-actif Association

 
A single objective of facilitating access to accommodations and recreational sports for people with reduced mobility.

Unlike the Tourisme et Handicap, label, its aim is simply to provide information for people with reduced mobility about available services that are not yet labelled.
