Become an l'Islette sponsor
The public opening in 2010 was the opportunity to begin numerous works, both inside and outside the château, to improve L'Islette for visitors.Since then, some large-scale works have been completed; the restoration of the chapel and its decorative paintings, the rebuilding of the bridge over the Indre, the creation of a ticket office at the entrance in the west pavilion.
Many projects remain to be carried out.
THE RESTORATION OF THE DECORATIVE PAINTINGS IN THE GREAT HALL
The Great Hall is the masterpiece of the castle thanks to the beauty of its painted decor. Nevertheless, appearances can be deceptive.
Even if the Great Hall has a wonderful look, when we look closer, this decor lets appear many disorders. Their restoration become urgent for some of them.
A restoration campaign of the three paintings above the doors and of the bedrock’s paneling has just been led in spring 2019. It wouldn’t have been possible without the collected donations (see below) thanks to a crowdfunding campaign initiated at the autumn 2018.
This is the case concerning the three paintings above the doors as well as the supporting woodwork, in particular the surrounds of the south face windows, which are richly decorated with some gentle bunch of flowers and elegant landscapes.
Nevertheless, the major part of the work still to be achieve. That is to say, the restoration of the painted decorations of the upper part : the French ceiling, the stone frieze with the painted coat of arms, the fireplace.
So we are asking you to help us and become a l’Islette sponsor so that we can carry out these works. A sponsorships agreement signed with La Demeure Historique will allow you to benefit from a reduction of tax on your income at a scale of 66 % of the amount of your donation (over 50 €, and only for people who pay its income in France). You can donate -
- online on l'Islette's own page on the web-site www.mecenatmh.com
- by post, sending a cheque (made out to "Demeure Historique - Château de l’Islette") to Demeure Historique, 57 quai de la Tournelle, 75005 Paris, France.
This tax advantage also applies to corporate sponsorship; businesses can also benefit through tax reductions on their donations, as granted by article 238 bis of the CGI.
We sincerely thank you for your support.
