Responsible tourism: Yoga retreat in Italy

Environment

Locanda della Quercia Calante is an old renovated stone farmhouse, with completely environmentally-friendly principals of operation. It was architecturally designed to provide maximum comfort for its guests but at the same time to keep as low an impact on the local environment as possible. Quercia Calante uses solar energy for all its energy production including an advanced climate control system and the comfortable rooms are kept clear of magnetic fields to ensure guests the most relaxing stay possible. The large lush gardens, surrounded by oak trees and century-old plants, have at their centre, a spring water swimming pool, a natural lake-shaped pool surrounded by volcanic rock and divided into three pools on different levels connected by a system of rocky waterfalls. A solar powered whirlpool is provided in the middle of the largest pool. Guests are encouraged to recycle all waste and to produce as little waste as possible. All the food on site is prepared fresh using locally grown produce.

Community

The restaurant uses local produce grown in a sustainable environment and even the wine list consists of wines from quality vineyards using local traditional production methods. Guests are encouraged to buy local and to support the local community. For this, the area provides high quality tourism so that guests return year after year knowing that their purchases and experiences are helping the local community as well as being of value to them.
The Quercia provides employment to many local people, cooks, cleaning and groundstaff as well as massage therapists and many other helpers. It also promotes local tourism with wine tasting, cultural trips and many other activities to support the local community and encourage home grown tourism in its region. Rachel prefers to work with centres that operate in this way, nurturing their local people and environment. She uses a local company to provide transport whether for excursions or transfers from Orvietto or Rome. People who know the area, know the countryside and environment in her experience provide a better service and are more committed to sustaining their environment than perhaps a more commercial operation might be.
