And a more positive impact on the world around us …
We are working to make a holiday at Domaine La Castagne a more environmentally and socially sustainable holiday. We believe in working alongside the environment and trying to ensure that we and our guests have as minimal impact as is practicable, working to support local producers, encourage use of environmentally friendly travel and alternative products and approaches that support our environment (and all of us too!)
Au temps de la nature…
We bought our home, Domaine La Castagne, in April 2019. It gave us the opportunity to create Nature’s Pace Holidays to help people to share in the beauty and tranquility of Domaine La Castagne and the beautiful Lauragais countryside. We felt that ‘au temps de la nature’ perfectly describes what we are trying to achieve to do, we want to give people time.
