• Energy saving lighting is used where possible. Guests are requested to turn off unnecessary lights, the air conditioner and underfloor heating when you leave a room or the villa.
• Recycling is done daily for items such as paper and cardboard, metal, glass and plastics. A container is provided for all recycling items.
• Guests are advised to treat the usage of water, gas and electricity as the scarce resources that they are and encouraged to re-use towels. A notice is placed in the bedrooms asking guests to place the towels on the rails if they will be re-used to assist the environment. Towels and linen are otherwise changed every third day.
• As all of the bedrooms have showers, this allows and automatically encourages guests to save water as opposed to having a bath.
