Eco resposible Approach

"Sobriety is a happy option"

 

Be like the hummingbird, because taking care of yourself necessarily means taking care of the environment.

Right from the beginning we chose to include an eco responsible dimension in our project, that is we have always striven to manage it, by doing our best, on our scale to take into account the impact of all the aspects and dimensions of our project on the environment.
This choice is voiced through the following examples: 
We respect the location and its history. We have done our very best to restore and  renovate the original built heritage as it deserves so as to preserve the fired brick walls and local architecture. We carry out the up keep of the surrounding natural heritage (fruit trees, plantations, pruning) in the same way, because, it is also our duty as the new owners, to treat the old organic growing area with the respect it deserves.
We also voice our choice through the way we have furnished and decorated our hotel being driven by preserving the environment and taking into account the impact the materials used have on everyone. Thus everything we use from cleaning agents, through beds, matresses and bedding is as natural organic and as eco responsible as possible. Our sourcing policy is of the same ilk, we source local as much as possible and even "ultra local", for our fresh organic vegetables come from the field opposite and our fruit from the garden!

It is no doubt a modest effort but we are and will always be proud of doing our best to be like the hummingbird.

Ultra local producers and guest instructors

 

We have carefully selected most of our producers and instructors from in and around the Tarn et Garonne and even nearer for their working knowledge of the local environment. 
 

Waxed Concrete by Biologement

Renovating the existing buildings and hotel building proved to be a genuine field of experiment in our quest of being environmentally friendly and doing what is best for our guests' health. If we haven't managed to reach all our aims (legislation, cost, …) we strove to ponder over the pros and cons of each option every step of the way. This allowed to discover many different innovations and solutions to our needs.
Among them a natural waxed concrete technique invented by Biologement.
Their lime based materials are not only rot proof but also can also be washed with simple soap and water.
 

Handmade soap

L'Ostalas has replaced its complimentary toilet sets by bars of local hand made (through cold saponification) organic soap.

Based in the heart of pretty fortified village called Monflanquin in the Lot et Garonne "Saponaire" put their heart and soul into making chemical and synthetic additive free soap. We use their soap from the bathroom to the kitchen at home... We hope you'll like it as much as we do!
A hearty thanks to Geraldine.
