All domestic hot water in the hotel is heated with solar power, with additional hot water coming from geothermic heat pumps. All joinery is made according to eco-standards known as PEFC (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) using wood sourced in France from sustainably managed forests. Low-impact LED lighting is used throughout the hotel, and the water taps are fitted with an ‘eco-smart’ system to help reduce waste.
