Taking care of the ecosystem is a key aspect for the sector of hotel hospitality, because the natural beauty of the environment is a part of our offer. Looking after the ecosystem is therefore not only a choice and a commitment, but also a guarantee of entrepreneurial sustainability.
, and that it is a limited and indispensable commodity. This is why we believe in the responsible use of water, and why we aim to reduce its wastage and maximise its recycling.
1- Water saving in hotel rooms
Installation of dual flush toilet cisterns, with two buttons that deliver different quantities of water when pressed.
Use of filters and mixer taps to reduce water flow.
2 - Encouraging guests to save water
Signs are provided in rooms inviting guests to save water by using towels more than once.
3- Detection and repair of leaks or losses in rooms
Maintenance work is one of our priorities, not only to be able to constantly present guests with an attractive product of great quality, but also, for example, to allow us to find any leaks in pipes and repair them. In addition, our hotels open seasonally, and during the winter, to avoid small losses from taps or toilets that over our period of closure would add up to a significant amount of wastage, we completely shut down our water system.
Use of recycled non-potable water or water from wells.
We work every day to reduce the quantity of wastes produced by our activities as far as possible, and to manage them responsibly. This commitment takes various forms:
1. Ecological breakfasts
To avoid the great quantity of wastes generated by single-portion containers of jams, honey, chocolate and yogurt, for many years we have already been using unpackaged products, tastier, more ecological and without producing unnecessary wastes.
2. Products leaving hazardous or highly pollutant residues
We use recycled toner cartridges for printers and photocopiers.
3- Used vegetable oil
Used vegetable oil from our kitchens is collected by a company specializing in handling special wastes, with local authority approval.
4- Separate waste collection
In our kitchens we have separate bins for paper, plastic and organic wastes.
Air conditioning, heating and lighting are vital for the quality of service in a hotel, and their responsible use can never be allowed to affect the comfort we provide to guests. Aware of this, we have however taken several steps to reduce our energy consumption.
1. Use of energy-saving bulbs
2. Purchase of electrical appliances with a Class A energy label whenever possible
3. Efficient use of heating and air conditioning:
a) bedrooms have a system that automatically interrupts the supply of air conditioning or heating if the balcony door is open, avoiding the needless waste of energy;
b) switch or key card to shut off power: in all rooms there is a switch or a card slot that allows the power supply to be shut down, avoiding the unnecessary use of electricity when guests are not present.
4. Control over lighting
Timers and motion sensors in public spaces.
5. Solar panel systems for water heating
Villa Mia and Hotel Nettuno have recently been fitted with solar water heating systems.
6- Condenser boilers with low emissions and high efficiency
An environment free from noise and vibrations is essential for the comfort and satisfaction of our guests.
1. Rooms with noise insulation
2. External door and window fittings in PVC or aluminium with soundproofed glazing
3. Air conditioning systems in protected areas and with controlled noise emissions
