Our commitments Planet 21 Bronze, Collectif Mieux, Atypio
Our Aigle Noir Hotel MGallery has been committed to improvement for several years and to do so, does not hesitate to make concrete commitments, to shake up its habits and to surround itself with competent professionals in the field.
Indeed, in order to structure our environmental commitment in the best possible way, what better way than to be accompanied. So, in 2023, we will be guided by the organization Betterfly TourismAtypio Hotels Resorts' historical partner, co-investor and manager of our establishment.
For the same reason, "together we are stronger to meet environmental challenges than alone", our hotel joined the Better Collective via Atypio Hotels Resorts.

Restore - Chintz - Modernise
The Aigle Noir Hotel is an inspiring place, inspired by its illustrious guests, its experience and its long history.
What a pleasure it was to hunt, to find in the cellars among the treasures of more than 300 years of history, objects to be restored, modernised for some, to be framed, dusted for others, to be dramatised like this wall of "broken" plates in our restaurant A l'Epicerie, symbolising an anecdote to be told to you, with pleasure
We have had the pleasure of working with various French companies, including the craftsman Zuber, over the years.
This factory, founded in 1790, opened the Wallpaper Museum in 1983 and continues its unique, traditional know-how in its workshops, which has attracted the entire world. Today, the ZUBER Manufacture still uses for a large part of its production all the traditional hand techniques used since its creation, and mainly woodblock printing carved on hand-brushed backgrounds. A true "living heritage".
