Green Resort

A great effort to reduce our environmental footprint

TripAdvisor Certificate 2016

We are working hard to reduce the environment footprint of the place where we live and work and our guest spend holidays.

To use low-energy light bulbs and recycle the bottles it is good, as most of the people now do this, but it is not enough. So, we are working for that extra mile the bold steps that make us out from the crowd..

To give you an idea of the positive steps we have taken in order to protect the environment and improve the quality of life, we mention some of them as follows:

  • EQUIPMENT - All tables,chairs and chaise longue which equipped our suites and the swimming pools, are not in plastic, but are built with wood which comes from FSC certified well managed forest and company controlled sources.We can say the same about the sunshades around our swimming pools,that are made in wood and a local bush - heather.
  • SWIMMING POOL MAINTENANCE - We installed in our two swimming pools an “environment friendly” system which allow you to enjoy a pure and crystal water,almost free from chemical products bad for your health and that cause allergies and skin irritations.
  • SAVING WATER - we have installed in our unit some systems as:
    • - low-flow taps, low–flow shower heads and dual-flush toilet cisterns.
    • - A private grey water recycling system which provide water to irrigate trees and local bushes improving local biodiversity and conservation apart that avoid the use of drinking water for the irrigation.
  • DEALING WITH OUR WASTE - Apart from we provide recycling facilities for our guests with separate bins, we made natural compost with the organic or green waste from our kitchen, cuted into small pieces, with the “help” of the the animals we have in farm,which produce manure to be used as organic fertilizer in our plantation of vegetables and trees.
  • SAVING ENERGY - All the main building have double walls with insulation panels.We installed three sets of solar hot water system and low energy lighting systems using light bulbs and a time-programmed lighting.
