The Earth is our Home. We have chosen to embrace sustainability, we have decided to adopt policies that respect the environment and our valley. With this new philosophy we have embarked on a path of renewal and innovation.
BREAKFAST AND LOCAL PRODUCTS Our breakfast offers local and km0 products; in summer especially on request we deliver vegetables from our garden (under the stairs!) to our welcome guests, on request also freshly squeezed local and seasonal fruit. We do not use packaged products for our packed lunches, but freshly baked sandwiches from our trusted bakery with fresh cold cuts.
ELECTRICITY Light bulbs and most of our appliances (apartments or in use at the structure) are highly energy saving (classes A ++ or A +++). When it is time to renovate some equipment we always choose environmentally friendly and eco-sustainable products. We also offer agreements with e-bike and bike rentals, we promote sustainable mobility and invite our customers to use public transport (agreements with local public transport in summer and advantageous position in winter so as not to use any type of road transport. ). Our outdoor lights and lights in the common rooms and corridors are automatic (they turn on and off only when there is movement / need based on daylight).
WATER AND HEATING Throughout the year, if the temperatures require it, we obviously activate the heating to have a welcoming atmosphere in the busy and common areas. Our facility is also analyzing the geothermal energy solution (but this is only a project!). Many areas of the house are already equipped with thermal insulation and others will soon be, to allow energy savings and respect for the environment. We always invite our Guests to save water and electricity, as well as invite them not to leave the doors and windows open if the heating is on.
For years our structure has had a solar system for the production of hot water: especially during the summer (but also in other periods of the year, it depends on the weather) our structure is self-sustainable.
WASTE AND ENVIRONMENT In the apartments, upon arrival, we prepare a special kit for the separate collection of wet waste. Island for separate collection. We take care of our garden with love every summer, where we also pick berries.
SOCIAL Our family is active in the social and cultural reality of our country and our Valley. We are convinced that only together, in community, could we activate networks of sharing, support and comparison, whether social or environmental. Volunteering is for us a pillar of our philosophy and we are strongly convinced that it gives us important values to believe in, on which to base our idea of Hospitality and Family. We also promote local eateries and artisans.
