Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We support the local community by giving charity to the church of the nearby Vourvoulos village which provides help to poor people. We encourage our guests to visit local attractions such as music events, theatres, and ecclesiastic fiestas. We also suggest buying local products such as fava beans, dry tomatoes, caper and local wine from Mrs. Moschoula, an old local woman.

We use energy efficient light bulbs and appliances. We turn off the lights and turn appliances off stand by when not in use. We have locks on rooms that turn off appliances when guests go out except refrigerator. We use low energy consumption, A category, for the electrical devices. For the offset of carbon emission we have planted a lot of trees and plants. We collect rainwater for use in the house. We have 100 m3 underground water tank to collect rainwater.

We use Apivita natural products for shampoo and shower gel. We use only animal manure for the garden from mules and biological fertilizer products. We leave an area of our garden uncut for beautiful spring flowers like margaritas, poppies, etc. We feed food waste the lovely local cats. We recycle plastic, glass and paper. We use internet for our reservations and minimize the amount of printed documents.

We employ 1 woman that works as housemaid, that lived in Vourvoulos village. We occasionally get the services of a gardener. We buy local products from our neighbours such as tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants, figs, Indian figs, caper, fava beans, organic cheese and meat. Also we cultivate our own vegetable garden behind the windmill. In addition in our field we have figs, Indian figs, olive trees and tomatoes.
