Our values

A common commitment

As I write these lines, my memories take me back to the child I was, playing in these walls, bathing in this river, drinking from the fountains...

I grew up in the midst of this nature that I have always taken for granted. Its preservation and conservation were at first a natural act for me, before becoming a subject and then a concern.

In the course of my career, surrounded by the men and women who accompany me, we had to think about how we could contribute at our level, with our values and our means to the protection of the environment and more particularly to sustainable tourism.

Today it is collectively, and if possible with you, that we wish to reinforce our commitment and responsibility for the environment.  We are taking this road humbly, without animosity and without ever wanting to give a lesson.

We know that this road will be long, and that our journey can be constantly improved, but we are going forward convinced that true luxury is to be found here, far from the codes, outside of time and more than ever here!

All together!

Our environmental charter

Le Moulin du Roc has been committed to sustainable tourism for several years and is progressively striving to reduce its environmental impact and thus contribute locally to the socio-economic fabric. In particular, we have put in place: the reduction of water consumption, waste management, the promotion of local agriculture and local products, and the implementation of environmental awareness programmes for our staff and clients.

We are all concerned with the use of renewable energy and we encourage initiatives undertaken in the region, such as the construction of a methanizer in our village. We are currently working on a photovoltaic project that will be implemented in the coming years.

We favour short circuits and local products as much as possible. We grow and use garden flowers to garnish our bouquets and we grow our own herbs for the restaurant. For the first time this year, we will produce our own 100% Moulin du Roc honey, while at the same time helping to preserve our beloved bees. A large orchard with multiple fruit trees is also being created near the Moulin.

At the same time, we have strengthened our commitment to supporting community and associative projects through, for example the local school of the village.

Thus, by staying at the Moulin du Roc hotel, you will contribute in your own way to the preservation of our environment and the promotion of a sustainable economy. It is important to us that our daily work has a real meaning. We thank you for accompanying us directly or indirectly in this eco-responsible approach.
