Ecogite Label

This environmental attribute was created in 2003 in the PACA region and is a Gîtes de France nationwide voluntary initiative.
- meet the serious environmental concerns of a growing number of users
- contribute to improved profitability of properties by cutting back expenditure on energy, water and upkeep
- have a positive impact on environmental protection – local, regional and worldwide (by reducing the carbon footprint of our properties)
- anticipate foreseeable developments in regulations (especially as concerns energy).
The following environmental factors are taken into account:
- suitability of property to its setting and site
- use made of environmentally sound, local materials in the property’s construction
- energy savings in every area (heating, hot water, cooking, electricity)
- use of renewable energy (solar, photovoltaic, hydro and wood)
- low water consumption
- management and recycling of waste produced by occupants of property
- commitment to informing users and raising their awareness of environmental issues, and provision of feedback to Gîtes de France.

The property must fulfil a certain number of requirements for each of the above factors, attaining minimal levels (threshold values) below which it cannot be accorded the ecogîte attribute (e.g. air conditioning, electric heating with joule effect, etc).
Ecogîtes® accommodation is rated in the same way as gîtes, with attribute levels ranging from 1 to 4 ‘épis’.
