Our policy and actions

1- Procurement, Energy Management and Saving Initiatives
We ensure energy control of all hotel operations by investing in class A efficiency equipment and we raise awareness of energy saving among our staff by developing the following initiatives and actions: Low energy lighting in all hotel facilities, guest information system to turn off air conditioning/heating in rooms when not present, replacement and maintenance of air conditioning systems, timers to control outdoor lighting, TV with low energy screen, heating/cooling of pool water by means of a heat pump, automated system of laundry and pool products.

2- Water management
The Mas des Romarins, which promotes ecotourism in Provence, incorporates water-saving devices in its hotel that reduce water consumption, both in the taps and in the toilet cisterns. The gardens are equipped with a drip irrigation system.

3- Waste management
Mas des Romarins minimises waste production in all its areas, recycling glass and plastic containers. It also composts the vast majority of its organic waste.

Preservation

From the natural space

Our natural area of the Luberon is dear to us. Our terraced garden, bordered by natural stone and typical of Gordes, is a real treasure trove of plants and architecture, and immerses you in the heart of nature. We therefore make it a point of honour to preserve this green landscape.
The ancillary facilities are all demountable. Their impact on the site is limited.
The planting of local plant species contributes to the integration of the landscape in a natural park.
The estate's swimming pool is fully controlled: an automatic system allows for the efficient dosing of chlorine and various additives.

Priority to local products and services

Since its creation, the Mas des Romarins has always given priority to local products.
In its day-to-day management, the establishment gives priority to companies from the Vaucluse and more particularly from the Luberon and, as far as possible, uses local materials for its infrastructures.
Our customers benefit from local and organic products for breakfast and snacks, thanks to our partnerships with local producers.
The Mas des Romarins also develops partnerships with nearby service providers, and employs local staff as a priority.

Customer awareness

To green actions

Various actions are organised to raise awareness among our clientele about good practices in sustainable development and sustainable tourism: Outdoor activities on ecological themes (fauna, flora...) are proposed in order to pass on messages on the protection and respect of the environment via our local partner: OT Luberon Monts de Vaucluse. Waste management is an essential step in preserving our environment. Signs and a welcome booklet are available to our customers.

Daily approach

related to ecology

Ecotourism rhymes with ecology. At the Mas des Romarins, environmental protection is based on everyday actions. A strict waste management system is applied throughout the establishment, through selective sorting, recycling and composting. Water and energy wastage is limited thanks to water savers, dual-flow toilets, low-energy light bulbs, etc. We favour dry steam for disinfection and cleaning, and we do not use any chemical or phytosanitary products for the exterior maintenance of our estate.

Hotel under audit

of the European Ecolabel

Our commitment to ecology and the preservation of nature in the Vaucluse and more particularly in the Luberon allows us to consider obtaining the European Ecolabel for Eco-responsible Tourist Accommodation Services. This distinction rewards the efforts made by the sites to reduce their impact on the environment and work towards sustainable tourism. Among the criteria taken into account are the reduction of water and energy consumption, as well as the use of renewable energies, selective sorting, ecologically friendly cleaning products, etc.
