Organic Green Thinking

Our B&B is part of an old barn that we have recently restored by using natural materials and sustainable tecniques. However, our green thinking is much more than the application of eco tecniques, it is a strong commitment to nature and its safeguarding. Our intention is a loving, respectful approach to nature and our aim is to live in synergy with nature and its rhythms.
