awarded to environmentally friendly accommodations
...because the Jeu de Paume team is convinced that it is well founded and necessary to adopt ecological gestures that preserve our environment, because we benefit, in this historical place, from original assets which allow us to develop criteria and tools respectful of the ecology.
The adhesion of the team. More than a simple adhesion, it is a voluntary approach of the Jeu de Paume team. The team, which has been working together for several years, wanted to systematize and develop an ecological attitude around the label clef verte. This international label is awarded when the recommendations of sustainable development experts are applied.
An adapted historical site
The traditional masonry walls - those of the Jeu de Paume dating back to the 17th century - offer unequalled natural thermal regulation. This structure and the wooden frameworks are essentially ecological, unlike certain modern construction materials. A heat pump system provides the additional heating or cooling required by our contemporaries...
What does the label clef verte prescribe?
The main focus is on water and energy consumption, as well as on waste recycling and the nature of cleaning products. Of course, the products used in the rooms are organic and the multiple individual packaging is forbidden.
In addition, our guests are already used to having only the linen they have designated changed, which saves 6 liters of water per towel!... Everyone also knows that in an unoccupied room the electrical appliances will be switched off...
We are happy to be able to display the famous label clef verte since a few months now !
We're committed to protecting biodiversity as a whole, which is why we decided to adopt a beehive. Bees are one of the pillars of biodiversity, responsible for 80% of pollination. Protecting bees also means protecting our food balance, which is under threat. Adopting a beehive helps to repopulate French bee colonies and thus boost pollination. We'll be delighted to share with you the good honey from our bees, which are raised at La Ferté-Saint-Aubin.
In our hotel, we have also decided to offer shelter to insects by installing two insect hotels in our inner courtyard. These insect hotels help to preserve and protect the insects that are essential to biodiversity, by promoting natural pest control and pollination, while helping to restore local biodiversity.
For your trips around the hotel, we suggest:
On foot, strolls in the Marais area, the Ile de la Cité, the discovery of the botanical garden, and the St Germain area.
