We are a member of
association Cévennes Ecotourisme
This association includes hundred tourist structures committed hired in one
Approach(Initiative) of progress defined by the European Charter of the Sustainable Tourism in Spaces protected.
Worried of protecting the wealth of our heritage (holdings), we put a lot to the everyday life for the ecotourism.
The members of the network the Cévennes ecotourism chose to make a commitment to reduce their impact on the environment and contribute to the sustainable development of the territory of the National park of Cévennes.
They made a bet, that of to make you discover and include their living environment of exception to respect it better and participate in its conservation.
We chose to subscribe to it in the opening of our bed and breakfast because this initiative corresponds to our values and it allows us to belong to a network having identical aspiration. We are from now on a signatory of the European charter of parks to nationaux.
Our objectives are at the same time environmental, social and economic
Protect at best our planet and our future by beginning with what surrounds us, to protect the local fruit variety, to to exchange with and all around the protected space that is the national park, to feed on healthy products, to share them but also to go towards more autonomy
