Be an environmentally responsible tourist

Ecological responsibility increasingly dictates our lifestyle choices, including during holidays. It must be said that in France, we benefit from such an exceptional environment, heritage and history that it is difficult not to worry about its preservation. To enjoy it without remorse, the ideal is to practice the new tourist trends: micro-tourism and slow-tourism.

If slow-tourism is a holiday concept where time is the primary value, micro-tourism is based on distance. But in fact, these two ethics are very close, since the main thing is to take advantage of different holidays, out of time, to disconnect from your habits, in order to really reconnect with nature and your loved ones, to live exceptional moments.


Choose accommodation with an eco-label

To best choose your ecological accommodation, the easiest way is to refer to an ecolabel. There are different ones: “clevacances environnement”, “High environmental quality”, “Regional Natural Park Values”… You can also rent an eco- gite or benefit from a peasant reception on a farm.

    Move according to the principles of " soft mobility "

    Soft mobility brings together the most energy-efficient modes of travel. It is very important in the context of micro-tourism, but also slow-tourism because you will take the time to observe your environment, to appreciate the beautiful landscapes and views inaccessible by car. Here are some examples, to move in an eco-friendly way:

    • For your short trips between the picturesque villages of Lot-et-Garonne, walking is the most economical, the most pleasant and the best for your health. In addition, you will walk the country lanes and see the country!
