Casale la Gora is a sustainable, green B&B
The large photovoltaic park produces up to 33 kW of electricity, and accumulates this up to 66 kW, to ensure that the Casale is self-sufficient for the majority of the year.
Together with us, you are also playing your part in helping the environment. If you have an electric vehicle, we have three charging stations.
The pool water is disinfected using a salt electrolysis system. The main benefit of this is that the treatment is natural and unlike chlorine, it does not dry the skin or irritate the eyes.
Not only will you enjoy comfortable sleep on our beds with Puracell, water-based foam mattresses and toppers, you will also have towels and bed linens with GOTS certification, made with cotton grown without pesticides or chemicals. Our rooms also use dispensers for detergents so as to limit waste.
Our kitchen is stocked with Tuscan and zero-kilometre produce.
You can help us by recycling your waste, as we are always careful to do.
