Commitment to the environment
The pruning of the hazelnut trees yields a large quantity of branches, which after shredding, together with the nutshells, are the fuel which we use for the heating system.
Because we want to respect the environment, we use renewable energy in the running of the house. We have installed sun screens to obtain hot water for the bathroom and to heat the water in the swimming pool.
