Eco-responsible stay

in `Burgundy

Our commitment to responsible and nature-friendly tourism

Sensitive to current climate change , aware that every gesture is important and that efforts must be made by everyone, we have been trying for a few years now to minimize our impact on nature !

We have implemented simple actions and gestures in favor of respect for the environment :

Preserving water resources :
All our toilets are equipped with an economical flushing mechanism and all of our washbasin and shower taps are equipped with aerators to considerably reduce the flow without impacting the comfort of use.
In the garden, we protect our plantations with a mulch of wood shavings or flax straw to reduce the frequency of watering. In addition, the irrigation of the flower beds by a drip and micro-sprinkler system limits the volume of water used.
We also have the chance to benefit from a well of a good capacity, thus avoiding us the use of the water of the network.
In order to preserve the quality of the water, we use a maximum of organic cleaning products.

Energy savings :
We replaced nearly 90% of our light bulbs with LED lights and installed a heat pump as well as energy-efficient household appliances to reduce our electricity consumption.

Waste reduction and recovery :
Among the simplest eco-gestures, recycling and sorting waste is not the least important with of course composting green waste, raising awareness of selective sorting but also by favoring the recycling of objects by giving them a second life.

Favor short circuits and local products :
We are sensitive to seasonal and "homemade" products, in particular by producing nearly 40 varieties of different jams that we will be happy to introduce you to during your stay!

In 2022, we signed the "Puisaye Accommodation Charter for Sustainable and Responsible Tourism" set up by the Puisaye-Forterre Tourist Office and obtained the 2nd of the 3 levels of eligibility by having answered at least 90% mandatory criteria and 50% of the "Plus" criteria !

This validates our actions and commits us even more!

Slow tourisme

Beyond these actions and eco-gestures, we are convinced that tourism that is more respectful of nature also means more responsible tourism , tourism where you take your time, the time to discover a destination without running from one end to the other from the department.
