The entire Yelloh! Village group is committed to a process of preserving and respecting the environment and developing greener and more sustainable tourism, in collaboration with the OFIS, closely alongside the AFNOR and with the financial backing of the ADEME. The aim in the long term is to assist all of our campsites to achieving the goal of European ecological certification.
Not just green spaces, our holiday areas are like big gardens where you live in the great outdoors. Regional architecture, site optimisation, discovery of the surrounding nature and a taste for the authentic are what define Yelloh! Village. Yelloh! Village sites are particularly well looked after.
Raising awareness among our customers is also an important part of the charter that all camping Yelloh! Village have to apply. So as to increase its commitment to a sustainable development policy, the group has set up Yelloh! Actions. These are designed for our customers, and cover the behavioural reflexes that should be used on a day-to-day basis so as to be more environmentally friendly.
A cartoon showing the Yellito mascot is shown in the bathrooms of the different accommodation options and in the bathroom facilities of every camping Yelloh! Village. These are intended to raise awareness among customers with regard to environmentally friendly behaviour. Yelloh! Village knows that even the smallest things we do every day are vital for preserving our planet.
During your stay, the cleanliness of your holiday campsite is very important for all of us. We therefore deal with waste generated by the campsite very carefully. Household rubbish is collected regularly and then grouped together in areas specially given over for this, for processing and reprocessing. Waste recycling policies are in place so that your ecological footprint is as small as possible, even while you're on holiday!
So the Yelloh! Village - Le Parc de Montsabert has established a composting system for reprocessing all waste that is organic in origin, and the Yelloh! Village - Les Grands Pins has installed a reprocessing and recycling system for other waste (batteries, printer cartridges etc.)
One of the questions that is inherent to human activities concerns the energy we require. For a long time, Yelloh! Village has been committed to tackling wasting energy sources in all its campsites.
We leave nothing to chance, with priority given to clean and sustainable energy sources, campsites equipped with ecological transport modes (electric vehicles used within campsite and bicycles lent free of charge in some Yelloh! Village).
The heat pumps and solar panels at Yelloh! Village - L'Océan Breton and Yelloh! Village - Les Mouettes supply holidaymakers with hot water for bathrooms and for the aquatic parks!
Water is an increasingly rare and precious resource, and we devote a great deal of attention to it here at Yelloh! Village. By collecting rainwater and encouraging responsible consumption, our campsites are implementing a sustainable and ecological process.
Various processes have been set up to this end: the Yelloh! Village - Le Sérignan Plage, for example, collects waste water from bathrooms for watering its green areas, and the Yelloh! Village - Le Soleil Vivarais has succeeded in reducing its daily water consumption by using water economiser systems and monitoring consumption.
The various Yelloh! Village are set in the heart of some of the most beautiful regions of France, Spain and Portugal, and are surrounded by breathtaking scenery and exceptional countryside. We are aware of the opportunity this represents, and we endeavour, with all the means at our disposal, to maintain this natural area intact for future generations of holidaymakers. All Yelloh! Village therefore attach special importance to fitting properly into the landscape, and to leaving as little footprint as possible on its sites. Special consideration is given to accommodation: from the solid timber chalets, in which you can see the reflections of all the various colours of the Pyrenees, to the fishermen's huts next to the ocean, Yelloh! accommodation always blends into the surrounding landscape.
The Yelloh! Village have therefore been particularly careful when it came to making sure that their rental accommodation areas fitted perfectly with their environment.
Protecting the countryside means also allowing people to discover it, get to know it and appreciate it. We are trying to raise awareness among campers about preserving the countryside in which our campsites are located by organising supervised outings, by discovering about the rich variety of natural phenomena in the area, the heritage, the history, the food and the culture that make up the basis of your holiday, as well as promoting the "5 Yelloh! Actions" to reduce its energy footprint.
Outings are regularly organised in a number of our Yelloh! Village for discovering plant life or the regional environment. Your holidays at the Yelloh! Village Le Brasilia, l'Etoile des Neiges and Le Pré Lombard will be full of new discoveries!
Environmental awareness has been one of Yelloh! Village’s main concerns since the start. This is why Clef Verte, which rewards good environmental management for eco tourist accommodation, recognised several of our campsites.
