to be one of the 100 leading TUI holiday-hotels worldwide in environmental compatibility and future-oriented hotel management.
Our philosophy and our product are based on an environmentally orientated hotel management. The refurbishings of the building during the winterly closing periods of our hotel are always realized following the criteria of Building Biology:
- Using traditional building methods and choosing appropriate natural, long-lasting materials guaranteeing a perfect transpiration of both the outside walls and the interior structures. The main walls are all built with natural stones thick up to two feet allowing a perfect and natural heat and noise insulation. A non-roughcast layer-sample of the old walls is visible in our dining room.
- Utilizing and taking advantage of natural ventilation: the hotel is positioned high above the sea and from the valley underneath a constant airflow allows us in realizing a perfect summer ventilation from the lower to the higher floors of the building guaranteeing a healthy indoor air quality.
- Using transpiring water colors, removing and avoiding all those building materials that have shown to be dangerous due to their toxic components as hazardous organic volatile compounds, plastic furniture and synthetic materials, splinter -woods, lead and asbestos.
- Taking care to reduce electromagnetic smog to a minimum. All major fuses-boards have been replaced and repositioned outdoors into a centralized, screened back-office. All electric wires of the entire building and the guest-rooms have been replaced and rationalized, all net circuits are screened.
The environmentally orientated hotel management includes waste-separation for recycling purposes, containers for flat batteries, energy-saving appliances, low-energy light bulbs, individually controlled air conditioning regulated by contact breakers of the double-glazed windows and balcony doors, solar energy for hot water production, reducing to a minimum the use of disposable crockery or non-returnable bottles, of canned drinks and portion packs, practicing flexible changes of bathroom towels, using ecological detergents and polishers, avoiding sealing outdoor grounds and using exclusively natural fertilizers in the gardens.
At breakfast we give priority to including the largest possible choice of natural foods, local products, regional specialities and fresh food without preservatives. Some organically grown products as well.
Same importance is given to or client's safety. The drinkable water is filtered, decanted and naturally decalcified through deionisation processing. All water pipes have been recently replaced with the latest non-toxic types. All electric installations are technologically advanced and corresponding to the latest security norms. All single circuits are protected by life saving devices. Alarm calling devices in each bathroom. Fire danger is reduced to a very minimum thanks to the virtual non-existence of dangerous materials as plastics and synthetics, carpets and tapestries. Curtains and mattresses are fire resistant. A total of 80 smoke detectors not only in the 26 guest rooms. The building is subdivided in fireproofed compartments and specialized technicians constantly carry through the security checks to devices and machines. In the winter 2004-2005 we replaced all diesel heaters with the last generation of cleaner gas-heaters with heat recovery systems integrating it to the existing solar heaters.
