Labels to guarantee your satisfaction
The FAMILLE PLUS label is awarded for a period of three years to municipalities that have a genuine policy of welcoming families and children. It is awarded on the basis of an application file, followed by an audit to ensure that the criteria have been met. Intermediary checks and consistent effort enable constant improvement and fine-tuning of the care and services offered to families.
Accommodation, activity and catering professionals are committed to working alongside the certified municipalities to provide a special welcome for families.
Like the "Pavillon Bleu" for coastal communities, "Flocon Vert" is a label of excellence for environmental and social issues. Governance, transport, energy, development, water, waste, social and territorial issues are all scrutinised to distinguish tourist destinations with a leading sustainable development policy. It allows tourist resorts that commit to vigorous and comprehensive processes to be valued, while giving mountain lovers a clear vision of exemplary destinations.
The QUALITÉ TOURISME™ title, created by the French Ministry of Tourism, is a recognition of continuous dedication to improving the quality of services provided by Tourist Offices. An internal audit is carried out every 3 years.
The QUALITÉ TOURISME™ label recognises the dedication to quality of multiple tourism players in France: hotels, tourist accommodation, holiday villages, campsites, restaurants, cafés and brasseries, tourist offices, seasonal rental agencies, places of interest and outdoor activities. It is a guarantee of trust and quality of service between professionals and visitors.
