accessible to tourist establishments

To guarantee accessibility, quality, comfort and service, there are various labels and classifications to which you can lay claim.

A label for what?

Obtaining a label for an establishment or activity reassures the public about the standard of the service. The label also ensures greater visibility of the offer by referencing it on websites, brochures and summary lists.

Labeling is generally a voluntary process. The label is awarded after submission of an application and an audit, which may or may not validate the certification.

Each label has its own set of specifications specifying the criteria to be met.

To help you find your way around, here are some of the tourism labels and classifications available. This list may be expanded.

Tourism Quality

You don’t have to be a luxury hotel to obtain the Qualité Tourisme label! This mark can sometimes be frightening, with its many constraints, but think again…

The only requirement? Meet a series of quality criteria, as the mark is obtained following an audit, to be carried out every 5 years.

You validate these criteria with your own style, your own ideas, your own way of doing things. The demand is simple: your services must be of the highest quality and meet customer satisfaction!

As you can see, the Qualité Tourisme label is the guarantee of a great welcome, top-notch organization and, above all, constant self-questioning, because the customer is at the heart of this label.

To find out more, visit the official Qualité Tourisme website.

Accommodation classification

Managed by Atout France, the classification of tourist accommodation covers hotels, campsites, leisure parks, tourist residences and vacation villages.

Classification in brief

  • Classification is official recognition of the quality of your accommodation.
  • It guarantees the conformity and quality of your accommodation with national and international standards.
  • As your offer is better identified, classification enables it to be better promoted by tourism organizations.
  • You will be issued with a statutory sign (approved by the Ministry of Tourism) attesting to the classification of your accommodation.
  • The classification is valid for 5 years.
  • It gives you the opportunity to be approved as a “Chèque Vacances” provider (information available fromANCV).
  • It also entitles you to an advantageous tax deduction (depending on your situation, check with your tax office).
