Eco-responsible Bed & Breakfasts

Some Parisian accommodation providers, involved in initiatives to respect the environment, offer ‘green’ stays.

Paris is also contributing to the development of participatory tourism. The French capital offers bed and breakfast options that enable visitors to stay with Parisians, who proffer advice about where to go and tips for exploring the city.

Quality accommodation in people’s homes is guaranteed by two labels: Hôtes Qualité Paris, established in 2005 by the City of Paris, the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau and volunteer tourism professionals, and ‘Authentic B&B’, a charter drawn up by the Fédération des professionnels parisiens de la chambre d’hôtes (FPPCH), whose members are also PCBV affiliates. Since June 2008, Authentic B&B has also been offering eco-friendly B&B accommodation.
