Social Awareness & Saving Our Planet

Social awareness

We fully support diversity, celebrating people’s differences.  Equality is a core value at VéloGîtes and is part of our history, culture and identity.  We truly believe that everyone on our planet should be able to enjoy life to its full, regardless of race, age, gender, identity or religion.

Save Our Planet

We are passionate about doing what we can to protect our fragile planet.  VéloGîtes is at the start of a journey to improve its energy efficiency but this will take some time. We eventually hope to be carbon neutral, employing alternative energy sources to reduce our footprint.   Recycling is a part of our life and we encourage all guests to do the same.  Full details of the recycling at VéloGîtes can be found in our welcome pack.

We have created natural areas on our land where we encourage natural plant and flower growth.  This has had an immediate impact as the number of butterflies and bees has increased substantially.  

We ask our guests to help us to do all that we can to reduce our impact on the environment.  Here is how you can help: 

Recycling

Every Gîte has two bins, one contains a black bin bag, one has a yellow bin bag.  The yellow bin bag should be filled with the following items: 

  • Plastic
  • Metal food containers
  • Cartons
  • Paper and cardboard
  • The black bin bag should be used for all items that cannot be recycled
  • Glass bottles can be recycled, there is a bin at the Salle Polyvalente

Please ask us if you need any advice on what can or cannot be recycled.

Water

Each drop counts!  As summers become hotter, the amount of rainfall is decreasing.  Please limit your use of water as much as possible.

Electricity

We have fitted LED bulbs wherever possible within the Gîte building but please remember to switch off the lights when you do not need them.  This significantly reduces our electricity usage.   Please consider using the washing machines and dishwashers after 10pm at night; this is our cheap rate time.

please help us to help our planet, thank you
