The bedrooms are fitted with eco friendly ceiling fans and not air-conditioning. We do have air-conditioning units in the guest living area but again they are run by a heat-pump so could be classed as eco-luxury! We use the system more to heat the area in winter than cool it in the summer, when for most of the time the ans do the job quite well.
Most of the light bulbs used are energy saving low wattage with others outside the house being solar-powered and movement activated rather than being left on all night.
We recycle as much as possible of our household rubbish and encourage our guests to do the same. All paper, glass and plastic is taken to be recycled.
We try to organise our eco walking and eco tours to minimise the use of the car with many of our walking and hiking trips starting from the door of the villa. Walking is perhaps the most eco friendly travel possible!
Bed linen and towels are usually only changed every 4 days to minimise the effect of waste detergents on the environment and excessive use of water and electricity. Even our toilets have a low volume flush to reduce water wastage.
So for your eco vacation, we try at all times to minimise your carbon foot-print during your trip to Provence.
