Insertion sites centering on restoration of a 13th cellars

Les Amis des caves Bertine is a French organization founded in 2010 which aims to preserve the heritage of the Imprimeries Réunies printshop (formerly Imprimerie de Moulins) and restore the "Caves Bertine", vaulted cellars dating back to the 13th century.

Since 2011, Les amis des caves Bertine has undertaken an integration project to restore cellars allowing the training of young people in difficulty in the construction of old buildings. This restoration which started in 2011 helped them access various types of training in the construction trades including heritage buildings, printing and even cultural trades (history, architecture, etc.). 

Solidarity AccorHotels has supported this programme since the start of work right through to its completion in 2016, covering the costs of the materials needed for the restoration.
