Le Mat is a social co-operative (Corsortium) of social co-operatives. Up from our local pratices all over Italy creating jobs in many different branches and working for a more sustainable and inclusive community we developed all together a brand standing for responsible, inclusive and community tourism. LE MAT - SPECIAL PLACES, SPECIAL PEOPLE, SPECIAL VALUES. 15 social co-operatives are owners of the brand and spread the practice throughout social franchising. So plus the members and owners there are the franchisees. In the Le Mat places you can touch the co-operative work and stay with us some day, discover our pratices and the landscape and local communities. Since 2005 we also work with other social co-operatives in Europe and we developed Le Mat Europe and Le Mat Sweden.
Teresa – the Le Mat traveler – tells the story of the smal social co-operative LA TANA LIBERA TUTTI in Umbria, Central Italy. It’s a small workers owned social co-operative managing a hostel in a small village. In the video you can appreciate the hospitality and the kind of local policy and tourism the co-operative offers.
