SARDINE SPRING

On April 16 and until May 7, the whole Pays de Saint Gilles celebrates the arrival of sardines during the Printemps de la Sardine. During all the festivities, exhibitions, culinary workshops, screenings, other workshops ... are organized throughout the city and its surroundings.
Renowned for fishing blue fish, in particular sardines, Saint Gilles Croix de Vie has a heritage that tells its story related to fishing.

FISHING PORT
In the heart of the city, the fishing port of Saint Gilles Croix de Vie is the one and only French port labeled "Remarkable site of taste". With about forty ships and a hundred fishermen. This port is the first sardine port on the Atlantic coast. Indeed, about 3000 tonnes of sardines are landed per year. The sardine is not the only jewel of Saint Gilles Croix de Vie: when sardines are not being fished, from October to February, the sailors fish for the shrimp of Saint Gilles.

LITTLE ISLAND DISTRICT
Also called the Quartier du Maroc, this district shows the heritage of the "Moroccans", the Moors of Spain who fled their country in the 16th century due to religious conflicts. Arrived in Saint Gilles, they taught local sailors how to fish with a straight net.

WALK FISHING
More and more families are investing the foreshore, the coastal part where shore fishing is practiced.
At Sauzaie beach in Bretignolles sur Mer, when the tide goes out, you can fish for cockles and clams, mussels, winkles and crabs.
You have to be well equipped and remember to consult the tide times so as not to be trapped by the rising tide.

OUR ACTIONS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

On March 18, we celebrate World Recycling Day. In honor of this day, here are our actions for the environment.

SORTING OF WASTE
We have provided specific bins for glass, packaging and paper in our common areas. In the rooms, we ask customers not to put this waste (packaging, glass, paper) in the bin, but on the desk so that we put it afterwards in the appropriate containers.
For the paper, we use it to the maximum by using the back as a draft. Thus, we reduce our waste of paper.

NAPKINS
In case of recoats, we change the sheets every 3 days and the towels if necessary to minimize machine washes and water consumption. Thus, we invite our customers to deposit the towels requiring cleaning on the floor.

HEATING & ELECTRICITY
In the small, simple gestures of everyday life, there is the use of heating and electricity.We make the most of the natural skylight in our lobby. Thus, we turn on the light only in the morning and in the evening. If we leave a room, we turn off the light.
If the room is not booked, the heating remains off. We turn it on the day of an arrival. We turn it off when airing the rooms.


MAINTENANCE PRODUCTS
For cleaning, we favor the use of eco-labeled or ecological cleaning products.

SEARCH ENGINE
We use Ecosia to do our research on the Internet. This search engine allows you to plant a tree after about 40 searches.

Together, let's help make the world a better place by changing our lifestyles. Thanks to small gestures from everyone, we are fighting against global warming.
