The environnement : our top priority
We attach great importance to welcoming you comfortably and in high quality while respecting our commitments in terms of sustainability.
Our eco-philosophy corresponds to the aspirations of ecotourism:
1. Construction and building envelope:
Wooden construction, renewable raw material.
Untreated and unpainted raw larch facades.
Consisting of elements bearing the Minergie Module certificate.
Insulation of exterior walls (ground floor and 1st floor) in Isofloc cellulose wadding produced from recycled newsprint and whose manufacturing is the most energy-efficient of all manufactured insulation. FSC and Natureplus certification.
Insulation of interior walls made of 100% natural Fisolan sheep wool that absorbs and releases up to 33% of its own weight. Pollutants such as formaldehyde and ozone are degraded in the wool fiber of sheep.
Windows and Velux equipped with triple glazing (U = 0,5W/m2 K).
2. Heating and cooling:
Heat pump with boreholes and geothermal probes (3x130m) which offers the best performance.
Free-Cooling: the system allows cooling the building in summer thanks to the lower temperature of the geothermal sensors, a plate heat exchanger and a simple circulation pump. It is much less energy consuming than an air conditioning system.
3. Solar photovoltaic panels:
60 m2 are integrated on the west side of the roof, power 11 KW, (36 panels of 305 W), annual production about 13'000 KW / h. The self-consumption is organized to use the maximum current on the spot when it is produced.
4. Small daily actions:
Electrical and household appliances in category A + minimum.
Lighting with bulbs and LED lights
Wherever possible rechargeable batteries to avoid waste.
Cloth table towels, no plastic straw, paper use reduced to a minimum.
If possible ecological cleaning products.
Shampoo and shower gel natural without chemical additives.
Breakfast consisting of homemade products, regional and / or if possible organic.
Charging station for electric vehicles.
Provide an electric vehicle (car, bike) for guests.
Creation of a vegetable garden and fruit to complement the breakfasts and the table d'hôte.
Sustainable development becomes a way of life. Being close to nature without giving up comfort, this is the new design of holidays.
