Are you looking for a welcoming house for eco-sustainable tourism in Italy?
Do you want to take a vacation in full comfort without leaving an imprint on the environment?
The trend is called eco-sustainable tourism. We are here for you!
At Les Gomines “living in nature” is a philosophy of life to a conscious and respectful life together with all creatures and the environment! From the construction of our house according to the strict Klimahaus standards and the use of sustainable energy to the adoption of suitable measures for saving water, each of our choices is guided by the conviction that we take care of our environment and therefore also of ourselves.
An Eco-sustainable B&B in Italy
This are the main actions we have taken to offer you a dream vacation while protecting the environment:
1- Green Building: structure built following the Klimahaus energy saving protocols. Each of our spaces has been designed to bring mankind closer to nature through natural materials such as wood, natural fibers, ceramic and natural colors.
2- Green Energy: biomass boiler and solar panels offer sustainable heat. Solar panels and the use of low-consumption accessories and appliances allow you to minimize the consumption of electricity from the network.
3- Cura dell’Acqua: our garden is irrigated with rainwater from our recovery tanks, while all showers and tubs have a water jet regulator.
4- Differentiated above 80%: particular attention is paid to the differentiation of garbage by separating glass, paper, cardboard, cans, batteries, bulbs and organic waste.
5- Local Products: we offer a healthy nourishment, linked to tradition and seasons, which mainly draws on local, housemade and organic products.
6- Eco-compatible products: house cleaning and linen washing are made with “Ecolabel” products. All products available in the rooms (courtesy kit and toilet paper, notepads, placemats) are Ecolabel and / or FSC certified.
7- Green Mobility: we provide a video surveillance area for storing and recharging your bicycles. We encourage the rental of bicycles through reserved agreements and we propose to take advantage of public transport. Our B&B is a few steps from the woods, the river and the historic center, so you can enjoy your stay easily on foot.
8- Eco-Bonus Cleaning: we propose to take advantage of our Ecobonus, giving up the daily cleaning of the room if not necessary.
9- Support to the Local Community:We support local activities so that not only tourism but the whole community can thrive and thus bring well-being to all of us.
10- Inclusion: as an accommodation facility, we repudiate discrimination in all its forms and aspects, giving anyone the opportunity to come to our territory and be welcomed according to our values of sharing and respect for all people.

– Sustainable Tourism considers that on the environment,
– Eco-Tourism, on the other hand, aims to stay in contact with the nature.
