PRODUCING LESS WASTE
We participate in segregated waste collection and recycling programmes. We do not use glass bottles for mealtime drinks. We use highly concentrated washing-up liquid with a very low environmental impact with multi-purpose refills and electronic pumps for metering, thereby minimising wastage.
We use less water and consume less energy to heat it. This has been achieved by installing flow accelerators and reducers for showers and taps and special devices for toilets. We use almost exclusively energy-saving light-bulbs. We have installed a new low-energy consumption water heater and encourage our guests to try to reduce the amount of laundry that needs to be washed, particularly in the bathroom.
We make every effort to offer you healthy and natural cooking. We prefer organic fruit and vegetables and in any case produce that is grown with a low environmental impact and of which we know the origin. When nature permits, we are proud to offer you the produce of our own garden, including cherries, pumpkins, plums, potatoes, Swiss chard, figs, tomatoes, courgettes and pumpkin flowers.
All the produce is prepared personally by Salvatore. For many of our recipes we use organic flour, rice and oil. The Colli di Rimini wine served free of charge with our meals is likewise organic. At breakfast every morning the « organic corner » offers a wide range of natural produce. We promote local traditions and specialities and offer typical dishes based on our grandmothers’ recipes.
We encourage our guests to leave their cars at home and travel by train. We are always happy to accompany you to nearby stations. But of course there is plenty of parking space if you do decide to come by car. We offer all guests free use of bicycles.
We have made considerable investments in order to reduce noise by installing soundproof walls, replacing all entrance doors and purchasing new double-glazed external windows. We promote our splendid region with its wealth of history, culture and traditions. We organise trips to small towns and Malatesta castles, often accompanied by tasting of oil, wine, cheese and pork products.
