The local economy
Because it seems important to us to promote the local economy. We work with a bakery and a cheese boutique located near the Maison Dauphine. Fruit juices and jams are produced in the Drôme area. We favor varieties of juices and jams whose fruits are produced in the south-east of France: strawberries, apricots and figs. We direct our guests towards artisans and traders who also share our values: restaurateurs, food shops and all our favorites.
The human factor first
Because the economy is also a matter of solidarity, bed linen is taken care of and maintained by the ESAT in Puy-Sainte-Reparade, a few kilometers from Aix-en-Provence. This integration establishment employs men and women with disabilities whom we are happy to meet every week and who are proud to participate in the quality of service provided by our guesthouse.
La Maison Dauphine uses cleaning products that respect the environment and the health of the housekeepers and has replaced mini-size toiletries with family-size, refillable or recyclable bottles. In our charming guest apartments in Aix-en-Provence, a system for sorting and collecting glass, plastic and coffee capsules has been set up. The whole house uses Led bulbs and generally favors recyclable or reusable products.
We give you the choice to go further and support us in our ecological approach. We provide you with a bag in each apartment for sorting glass and recyclable packaging. You have the choice to request or not the daily change of towels.
To move forward in the direction of a more sustainable behavior and economy, we are gradually replacing old windows with double-glazed openings, while respecting the aesthetic and architectural requirements of buildings in our historic district.
