Here at Vacanceole, ecotourism holidays in France isn’t an oxymoron, and even less of a marketing ploy. It’s a demonstration of our desire to prove that holidays and the environment are a great combination. And we prove that daily, in our Vacanceole residences where you can relax while listening to birdsong and walk in areas of outstanding natural beauty, all while respecting the biodiversity.
Vacanceole’s commitment to eco friendly holidays is visible day to day in the good habits adopted by the staff at our residences. This means installing LED bulbs which use less energy, fitting taps and showers with flow reducers to reduce water consumption and buying local produce whenever possible. From little acorns, mighty oaks grow, and all these eco friendly measures combined help to preserve our planet. That’s also why a number of Vacanceole resorts have obtained the Green Key label, which means the holiday resort is enrolled in an ecotourism policy in France and overseas.
And coming back to the birdsong, our feathered friends are welcome in our environmentally friendly Vacanceole establishments, to such a degree that some of our residences have even been certified by the French bird protection league: the holiday village Le Village des Oiseaux in Motz, the residence Les Gorges Rouges** in Guillaumes, the residence Le Domaine du Lac in Chateauneuf-sur-Isere, the residence Les Gentianes** in Gresse-en-Vercors and the residence Le Domaine d'Enserune*** in Colombiers.
By the sea, in the mountains or the countryside, you’ll find Vacanceole Land of nature residences all over France for your eco friendly holidays. At the seaside, for example, head for Les Terrasses de Pentrez*** in Saint-Nic, not far from the Armorique Regional Nature Park. In the mountains, head for the residence Les Chalets du Verdon*** in La Foux d'Allos, just a stone’s throw from the Mercantour national park, where you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a brown bear or a stag. And of course, not forgetting the countryside, especially with the residence Le Domaine du Green*** in Albi, where you can marvel at the remarkable gardens of Tarn or a peaceful barge crossing over the river Tarn...
