Our Renovations.. When carrying out our renovations of our old properties (two out of the three are around 200 years old), we have kept many of the original features, including; wooden beams and wooden flooring, stone feature sink, old concrete radiators, as well as using reclaimed bricks in some of our flooring.
Where we have moved away from the original heating systems (we still retain log fires in two of our properties),. we have installed pellet burners that use sustainable wood pellets. In our house in Most na Soci, we have made a 20,000 euros investment in the latest technology for efficient heating - air source heating.
Our Furnishings including Bed Linen Where possible, all furnishings have been up-cycled, reupholstered, or sourced sustainably. We have sourced 95% of our bed linen from companies that are committed to a sustainable supply and manufacturing process. We do wash all our bedlinen at 60 degrees (since Covid).
Towels Whilst being conscious of our carbon footprint as a company, we recognise that the upkeep and cleaning of soft furnishings consumes significant amounts of water and energy. As a result, we have made the decision to no-longer provide towels only in an attempt to reduce our company and your holidays impact on the environment due to the requirements of high temperature washing. We therefore compromise, and hope that you appreciate that when you bring your own towels, you can choose to wash them at a lower temperature which is kinder to the environment, and we have removed the charge for towels.
Rubbish and Recycling Slovenia has been named one of the greenest countries in the world.https://www.slovenia.info/en/stories/why-is-slovenia-one-of-the-worlds-top-green-destinations . Everyone who lives here plays their part in helping this cause.
