Environmental approach

Le Moulin des Templiers is committed to an eco-friendly approach to reduce the carbon footprint of your hotel night.

For 11 years now, we have been doing everything we can to preserve this environment that makes us so good…

We have been labeled “Valeurs Parc naturel régional” as well as listed on “Vaovert” platform which includes the ecological accommodations of France.


All our development decisions are made in this direction, here is the list of our ecological approaches already in place:


1/Energy and resource saving approaches:

  • Extinguishment of the hotel lights at 23:00 so as not to disturb the wildlife
  • Installation of solar panels with 1800L storage for domestic hot water (rooms + wellness area)
  • Heat pump limiting the use of fossil fuels
  • Autonomous sewage treatment plant
  • Return of the river to its natural bed as part of the ecological continuity, in partnership with the Parc du Morvan
  • Reduction of packaging to limit the amount of waste (liquid soap, wholesale packaging cleaning products, …)
  • Installation of Low Power LED Bulb depending on the renovation progress
  • Replacement of hip baths to showers in order to limit water consumption.
