RESPECT THE ENVIRONMENT
To save water, to use biological cleaning products, to limit energy consumption, to sort out waste, to favor biodiversity are practices used day by day in our establishment.
EVERY ENCOUNTER IS AN OPPORTUNITY
Hosts coming from around the world, a drop of mixing, a pinch of exchanges, a portion of activities. Brew all these ingredients and you will get the recipe to enable each year thousands of people to meet, thus making Le Cart an important actor of social mixing, personal improvement, and popular education.
ALLOW HOLIDAYS FOR ALL
Exclusion is not fatality. From day to day we act and favor to welcome socially deprived and disabled people. People with reduced mobility are too oftenly ruled out of holiday departures and it can be hard finding a hosting center well adapted for tourism in these conditions. We are certified for the reception of people suffering of mental and physical disabilities.
