The Easy to Read and Understand guides (ETRU)

These documents are written in ETRU (Easy To Read and Understand). This is a simplified version of our tourist brochures.

Easy To Read and Understand is a writing method that aims to simplify, illustrate and explain information in order to make it accessible to the greatest number of people.

Indeed, the Mont Saint-Michel – Normandy Tourist Office wanted to invest in access to information for people with intellectual disabilities so that everyone can enjoy their holidays. We wish you a great discovery of our region!
