RESPONSIBLE TOURISM

An ecological approach

By choosing our B&B, you’ll be showing respect for the environment.

For us, it’s a question of lifestyle and, thanks to our environmental credentials, we have been awarded La Clef Verte  accreditation, the first international environmental accreditation for visitor accommodation.

Our approach is structured, based on the management of water, waste and energy consumption. We also give priority to responsible purchasing and increased awareness of the environment.

Everything we do is important so we’re relying on you to ensure that from little acorns mighty oaks can grow.

We really enjoy sharing our experiences with our guests.

 

Un environnement vert sur toute la ligne ! Responsible tourism.

At home

Our house is built of honeycomb bricks and the walls are limewashed. The house “breathes” and its temperature is regulated.

Hot water is produced by the solar panels while rainwater collected from the roof is used to water the garden. The electricity produced by photovoltaic panels is fed into the grid.

We sort our waste. We have a few chickens that eat any leftovers and vegetable peelings and we make our own compost.

We purchase responsibly. Household linen is organic and domestic cleaning products are accredited or natural (white vinegar, bicarbonate of soda etc.).

The breakfast table and ‘table d’hôtes’ meals

Much of our food is local and organically grown. The home-made jams are made with organic sugar. There are figs and cherries from the garden, apricots from the organic farm etc.

Our AMAP  (association for the preservation of non-industrial farming) provides some of the vegetables as well as cheese, flour, cereals, meat etc.

We have established close ties with local producers.

 

In the garden

In the garden, nature knows best. The plants are local and we use neither pesticides nor chemicals. Over the past few years we have been testing a permaculture vegetable patch. Our vegetables are sun-drenched and have a unique taste.
