Why we've chosen Une Campagne en Provence

How does Une Campagne en Provence minimise its impact on the environment and contribute to a sense of place?

To reduce its draw on natural resources, Une Campagne en Provence is highly insulated, heat pumps are used for warmth, low energy lighting are used throughout the farming resort, as well as motion detectors and timers on exterior lights. A large photovoltaic system covers 50% of electricity needs and the remaining half from the grid is generated from renewable sources. To reduce water consumption, faucets and showers are equipped with flow limiters and all toilets are dual flush. Grey water is used for garden irrigation.

All waste is recycled in separate bins where possible. Soaps and cleaning products are purchased in bulks and refillable dispensers are used to minimize plastic waste. Food produce and ingredients come from local sources as much as possible. To contribute postively to conserving stunning Provence, the owners are reforesting the area to compensate for carbon emissions and enhance biodiversity.
