Nature detox: top 3 most beautiful places in France

To make you dream a little, and travel through your screens, we have prepared a small podium of the most beautiful places close to nature in France!

1. Jean Imbert's ecological hut

We are not going to introduce you to the chef Jean Imbert, you probably already know him. However, you may not know his home in Brittany! Entirely ecological, his hut is located in the Sables d’Or and measures 85 square metres. Here you can help yourself to the 80 plants in the vegetable garden and relax on the roof facing the pine trees.

2. The Tasseou

In this restored 17th century sheepfold, located in the natural park of the Luberon, relaxation and nature are the key words.

6 rooms available, a 25-metre swimming pool and the sound of birdsong as an alarm clock. What more could you ask for?

3. Even more nature with the ecolodge stilts

Created in July 2015, the stilts are perched in the south of the Landes. Here, you can choose to stay on land or on water but always in harmony with nature. The domain also has a swimming pool, a spa and a restaurant.

So where do you book? We’d love to go to Jean Imbert’s! And if you want to keep dreaming, we also have an article on the most beautiful film houses!

Hoteliers: what if you made partnerships ?

For a hotel, making partnerships has two main advantages : saving some money and getting a unique decoration. Indeed, having partnerships can allow you to regularly change a lot of things in your hotel. So go for it !

1. For your hall and restaurant

One of the first things you look at when you arrive at a hotel is the reception. In general, we like to see a beautiful bouquet with seasonal flowers. So one of the first partnerships to negotiate could be with an eco-responsible florist or some independent florists who produce their own flowers.

Then comes the decoration : paintings, mirrors… For this, approach young artists whose style fits with your hotel.

Finally, think local for your restaurant service. For example, why not work with a local beekeeper ? Or that new brand that makes jams with local fruit ? You could offer their products for tasting, showcase all that your region has to offer and why not sell them in a shop adjoining the hotel and take a small percentage?

2. In the rooms

There are many possibilities for partnerships in the rooms!

Let’s start room by room:

In the bathroom : toiletries and towels for example. Many brands have already embarked on this adventure, such as Acqua di Parma. For towels, you can offer French linen such as Bonsoir, which is very popular on the networks.

In the bedroom: here again, you have many possibilities. For the mattress, think of young brands such as Tediber, and for sheets, once again Bonsoir or Lin des Vosges.

For decoration, you can offer paintings in partnership with a young artist from your area. You exhibit the paintings which can then be sold. This way, you can change your decoration regularly! You can also use the idea of the florist for dried flowers (very fashionable at the moment).

3. Setting up these partnerships

Now that you have identified the different partnerships and partners you want to approach, think about how best to approach them.

To do this, you need an implementation strategy to make your proposal more attractive to brands.

First, prepare some key figures : room occupancy, star ratings, number and type of guests, average guest spend…

Then, how do you put them in place ? For exhibiting artists, it could be a discreet note under the painting with the name of the artist and the price. For the bed, a nice frame near the bed saying “this mattress/bed is offered in partnership with…”. For the toiletries you can also make a small box with a nice label “products offered by the brand…”.

The little extra ? Put the name of all these brands on your website and present them on your social networks.
