-The construction of the cabins fully respects the tree which welcomes them. The health of Oaks is followed by a forestry expert and the cabin may be adapted as the tree grows. The wood used for construction are the larch and douglas, rotproof natural materials requiring no chemical treatment.
-They use a natural purification of water innovative system for the treatment of the Nordic Baths that work as well without any chemicals!
-ecological products (crockery, no bleached coffee filters product disinfectant...).
-The selective sorting of waste is done and explained at the beginning of stay: cardboard, plastic, glass and aluminum, each his basket - almost the entire part in circuits of revaluation!
