Village for all - V4A®
V4A®’s main goal is guaranteeing a free access to information about accessibility, on different features of the places tourists are going to travel to, in order to allow them to choose the best solution for their specific needs. "Village for all" is a quality label addressed to people with disabilities, food allergies, elderlies, families with children and anyone with specific needs.
"Everybody's holiday": by spreading the right information about a door width or a ramp gradient of the accomodation facilities that our technicians directly measured, we allow tourists to evaluate indepentently the quality of the services compared to their needs.
For the reasons mentioned above, Village for all ’s goal is improving accessibility for everyone, by creating public and private partnerships in order to train tourism professionals, entrepreneurs and Public Administration. It is a worldwide objective approach that overturns the concept of accessibility which is often interpreted as a mandatory obligation imposed by law.
Moreover, thanks to the new innovative technological device named "V4AInside", we collect and process data (photos, physical characteristics etc. ) and suggest a list of improvements in line with the environment and the heritage.
The Universal Design is a key element: our innovation is in making facilities accessible to all without giving a hospital design to the location. This is what we called “Accessibilità Trasparente”: a transformative and sustainable result by putting our visitors at the heart of their decisions.
The Brand V4A® is already present in Italy, the Republic of San Marino and Croatia with more than sixty tourist facilities (villages and campsites, hotels, residences, agritourism, B&B, residences). Accessibility information of V4A®’s facilities are available for free and with no registration to end users (tourists) and Tour Operator/Travel Agencies on www.V4A.it.
V4A® operates in full accordance with the “UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities”, specially referred to the Art. 30, which recognize the right of every person to a cultural life and to enjoy the access to places for cultural performances or services.”
