In spring 2007 we were approved as organic lemon growers. Not only does this mean we have great lemons but also, grass, wildflowers and birds in abundance in spring. Where possible we grow and buy locally organic produce and support local markets and shops. We have an emphasis on vegetarian and fish cuisine and can arrange special diets for people with allergies to lactose, wheat, etc.
Reliance on fossil fuel is reduced by our large solar installation at our guesthouse in Malaga. We have a battery of 12 large solar panels capable of supplying hot water for up to 14 guests. In winter we heat the main lounge burning logs from sustainable forestry sources.
General attention to minimising dependance on chemicals, over use of packaging etc . No use of hardwoods
Approved for organic lemons by CAAE and COAG, the recognised accreditation organisations in Spain for promotion and certification for organic growers. No use of chemical weedkillers or fertilizers on the orchard.
Minimise use of pape:

Recycling of waste:
