  • Construction materials

    We choose materials that have the least possible impact on the environment. Our bioclimatic buildings use wood from our forests and sport solar panels. We collect rainwater and use it for the toilets on site. Our lodges have composting toilets.

  • Energy

    Saving water is paramount at the park and we choose our fittings accordingly. Our fleet of electric vehicles helps limit our consumption of fossil fuels. The electricity we use is from 100% renewable sources.

The European eco label is the only official pan-European label.

In France, it is awarded by AFNOR. The nature lodges and the park restaurants bear the European eco label for tourist accommodation. This label acknowledges our efforts in reducing our carbon footprint, in terms of energy and water savings and waste reduction.
