Preserving the environment

Preserving the environment

Our gîte is located in the heart of 2 areas classified as Natura 2000. For the future of the planet, our children and ourselves, it is essential that everyone makes an effort to preserve it. At "Les Combres", we ask you to sort your waste; to respect the environment, the flora and fauna; to avoid wasting water, to use environmentally friendly products... For this reason, in collaboration with La Terre Bleue, we offer you natural solid soaps and shampoos produced locally and in an artisanal way. On arrival, we will provide you with one free guest soap per room. We also invite you to favour local producers rather than the big supermarkets. 

We are here to guide you if you wish.
