Cousinade camping dordogne perigord

Nature campsite in the Dordogne, Green Key certified!

At our nature campsite in the Dordogne, we are gradually implementing environmental initiatives to limit the impact on our exceptional and fragile nature as much as possible. In accordance with our values, we wish to participate in a sustainable, convivial and nature-friendly tourism.

This commitment to eco-tourism was reinforced in 2020 by obtaining the Green Key label with the congratulations of the jury. This label is the 1st international environmental label for tourist accommodation.

Already today, our commitment is translated into concrete actions:

Decrease of pollution:

  • Selective sorting of recyclable waste and our guests’ incentives to do so
  • Recovery of fruit and vegetable peels for animals
  • Recovery of used batteries
  • Installation of automatic dosers for the treatment of the pool water, which reduces the consumption of chlorine

Reduction of energy and water consumption:

  • Low consumption bulbs
  • Installation of water saver on faucet (jet breeze) and timed faucet
  • Photovoltaic installation with a power of 9 KwC

Preservation of biodiversity:

  • Manual and thermal weeding only if necessary (maintenance of paths and trees in common areas) zero pesticide
  • Preservation of biodiversity areas by having a very planted site with tree species, shrubs, flowers and very diversified plants
  • Commitment to the “Bird Protection League” by creating shelters (nest boxes, insect hut, shelters for small mammals) for the animals of our countryside
