Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Reducing our environmental footprint, and improving our environmental and social contributions, is our key guiding principle at Chalet Rosière.

CURRENT COMMITMENTS

Waste

To reduce our waste at Chalet Rosière we compost all organic waste produced on-site in two compost piles in our allotment. We recycle guests' rubbish. We also minimise our consumption of harmful packaging by buying in bulk, avoiding things like TetraPaks and plastic, and refilling containers wherever suppliers will allow it.

Energy

We use energy saving devices, and plant trees to offset our carbon foot print.

Transport

We encourage guests' to choose low carbon travel options, by offering everyone who travels by train 2% cash back on arrival.

Suppliers

We purchase from small independent suppliers producing products made from sustainable materials wherever possible.

Catering

Optional catering is vegan or vegetarian, low in air miles, and palm oil free.

FUTURE PLANS

We're committed to making Chalet Rosière off-grid and carbon neutral within 5 years. Future plans include:

Switching to a 100% renewable energy provider
Installing solar panels
More tree planting
Rainwater harvesting

People

NEIGHBOURS & COMMUNITY

Chalet Rosière is located in a small, traditional farming community. We treasure our relationship with our neighbours and respect their way of life. We buy eggs and cheese from our neighbour, because we know that he treats his animals well, and because it is important to us to support local business.

The farmers in our village practise traditional alpine farming techniques, including transhumance. We take guests who are interested to meet our neighbours' animals. These intimate experiences show guests that gentler way of life is possible.

We're proud to partner with local service providers and craftsmen and always pay a living wage. We have shunned the typical approach of many English chalet owners in the French Alps, of forming exclusive expat communities and only using English labour and products. We want to celebrate our local French culture and contribute to our local community. We are here to enable tourists to connect with the local culture, and we aim to reflect that in everything that we do.
