Why help restore the Châtel de Theys?

So that we, our children and all future generations can enjoy a rare heritage. To do this, we must start by saving it from progressive ruin. Such a project requires the participation of each and every one of us, because it is a heritage that we must take care of out of respect for our ancestors and out of passion for our history.

Small streams make big rivers…

All our donations are essential, even the smallest. The popularity of this subscription will mean that the restoration of the Châtel affects everyone and that everyone, whatever their means, wants to enjoy this wonderful place with their family one day, to enrich their culture and feed their imagination.
