We take the utmost account of the effects of our actions on the environment and also try consciously to live. We have therefore renewable energy (solar panels, wood burners). We grow our vegetables in our own biological vegetable garden without the use of pesticides. We seperate our waste and collect the rain water for watering the garden.Our pool is filtered through sand and plants.
We also consider our immediate social environmenty ensuring that our dogs do not cause nuisance (poop cleanup) ans we ask our guests not to smoke inside the gite to ensure a nice stay for the next guests.
In addition, this way of life is also particularly enjoyable ! Your own grown vegetables taste so much better ! Come and find out yourself on a Wednesday when we like to cook for you as a guest. Through Cuisine d'Amis you can follow cooking workshops or ask for an arrival meal with Burgundian dishes.
