Environmental Friendliness

Please help us to save natural resources by switching off lights when you don’t use them and by minimizing your use of water (shut off water when you brush you teeth, prefere shower intead bath in the tub). Please keep windows closed when you use the AC or heating.

Paluffo has a low environmental impact and the use of renewable resources is our goal. A photovoltaic power plant provides electricity, rain is collected for plant and grass irrigation, water is warmed by solar panels and waste waters are cleaned naturally with plant-based purification methods. Our heating system is fuelled by biomass pellets (compressed waste wood) and by a heatpump.

Garbage

The garbage must be separated: please use containers in the kitchen (labels identify what to put where).

Blue bin: plastic, metal cans, tetrapack (juice, milk cartons).

Yellow bin: paper and cardboard.

Brown bin: organic waste (peelings, egg-shells, coffee grounds, leftover cooked food etc).

Gray bin: all the rest.

Guests are kindly requested to bring the garbage to the bins that are located in the car park. The glass must be collected to the green bells that are located in the main road (SP 79)

Hair Dryer

A hair dryer is available in each bathroom. Do not use it during your shower or bath!

Mattress

Enjoy sleeping on the latex mattress and pillow.

Mosquitoes

At sunset and nighttime we suggest you keep windows closed when a light is on. Mosquito repellent is available in your room. If you need it, we suggest you only use it at nighttime. A mosquito net is provided for each bed.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the houses

Soaps and shampoos

In your bathroom you will find: rosemary oil hand soap, hawthorn oil foam bath and sunflower oil shampoo. These soaps and shampoos are locally produced by Fattoria Belcanto in Vicchio. They protect your skin by using natural oils and no chemical elements. The products are very effective but do not produce much lather. Your skin will feel softer and smoother…

Swimming pool

The Bio swimming pool is private and may only be used with the owners' approval and at your own risk. The water in the bio swimming pool is clean and pure but exists in a fragile natural environment. For this reason we kindly request our guests to respect the following rules:

  • take a shower before going into the pool

  • do not walk on the stone area

  • do not swim in the flower and plant area

  • do not throw anything in the water

  • remember that the maximum depth is 2.5 meters

  • diving is not allowed

  • do not use bathroom towels in the Bio swimming pool; note that you can request bio pool towels as extra.

  • close the entrance doors as soon you leave the swimming poolarea

  • note that under-18s are not allowed to use the pool without their parents 

 

Tipping policy

Tips are welcome and equally distributed among the staff. Grazie!

 

Washing machine

A washing machine and a dryer are available. Ask the room maid or Federica for the use.  

 

Water saving

We encourage our guests to save water following the practices:

- use shower rather than tub bath

- avoid water running during teeth cleaning

- use dishwasher only with full charge of dishes

- prefer dishwasher instead hand cleaning
