Organic know-how in Europe

Organic lifestyles – everything you need to know

We at myecostay – just like our umbrella brand France écotours – see ourselves as more than a mere tourism platform where our customers can quickly book their next holiday. We want to create real, lasting experiences, bring interesting people together and make them reflect about important issues. One of the topics that we value is the great variety of sustainable and ecologically-oriented lifestyles. Food production, its processing and cooking (including exciting trends such as “Slow Food”), will be among the topics which will be discussed here, as well as sustainable housing, ecological and efficient renovations etc. Finally, we truly hope that by doing so, we will help creating as well as keeping together a conscious, committed community.

In this blog category, we would like to present these topics and many more, in articles with rich content. We hope to add more and more information over time – so if you can't find a topic you are interested in, we would be very happy if you sent us a short message about it!
