Preservation of the natural area

We hold dear Le Nizan natural area. The vast meadow bordered by a dense forest represents a real wealth of plants. Therefore we make a point of preserving this landscape.

  • Facilities & accomodations are all removable and built without foundation, except the collective building. Their impact on the area is limited.
  • Vehicles take the access road to a unique parking lot and never drive within the Estate. Residents are able to enjoy the lowest possible noise level.
  • Planting indigenous species contributes to the landscape integration.
  • The Estate's swimming-pool is completely natural : plants are an efficient substitute to chlorine and its different adjuvants.

Eco-friendly daily approach

Ecotourism goes hand in hand with ecology. In Domaine EcÔtelia, environmental protection is based on daily routines

  • A strong waste management is applied throughout the Estate through the waste sorting, recycling, and composting.
  • Water & energy waste is limited thanks to water saving devices, dry toilets, and energy-saving lightbulbs.
  • We favour eco-labelled cleaning products & disinfectants and we do not use any chemical or phytosanitary products for the outside maintenance.

Sanitation system with reed filters

Still in an environmental approach, we decided to set up a sanitation system operating by reed filters. It is the most natural waste water treatment facility system possible. It gives back to nature an excellent quality water. No mechanical intervention is required : plants and layers of materials found in the filters do all the work.
