5) Energy management

  • Encouragement to stop heating and light in mobile homes and outbuildings.
  • The new rental refrigerators are classified in economy category A or A +.
  • Change of light bulbs by low consumption bulbs.
  • Weekly statements of electricity consumption.

    6) Air quality
  • Open sanitary facilities promote better ventilation.
  • No air conditioners in mobile homes; limited air conditioning in reception and bar / restaurant.
