Does Chateau de Sours use cookies on its website?

Yes. Like almost all websites, we use cookies on our sites. This allows us to detect that the same user has returned to our site, to know how many users have visited our sites, which pages have been consulted and if there were any technical problems when loading pages or navigating on the site. By collecting this information, we can find out which parts of our sites are of most interest and utility to our users, and monitor the overall interest generated by our websites.

These cookies do not collect information identifying the visitor. The information collected is aggregated and anonymous, and is only used to improve the functioning of the website. Like almost all websites, we use performance cookies on our sites.
  • Functionality cookies. Subject to existing and future technical possibilities, these cookies allow the website to remember the choices you make (such as your username, your language or the region you are in).
