Casa Valentina goes Green
We want to contribute to a green and sustainable environment for present and future generations.
With this idea in mind we changed Casa Valentina to a"green" holiday place by building a natural swimming pool. It uses gravel stone and clay in place of concrete or fiberglass, and aquatic plants instead of harmful chemicals and complicated mechanical filtering systems. The plants enrich the pool with oxygen, support beneficial bacteria that consume debris and potentially harmful organisms, and give habitat to frogs, dragonflies and other water life. The result is a beautiful, ecologically diverse system.
We are the first in the region who changed in the bathrooms the toilets to composting toilets. They need neither water to flush with, nor expensive sewage treatment, which is a great benefit to the environment.
Moreover, the separation process makes it possible to recycle the waste back to nature as an organic fertilizer. The benefit to you is a toilet solution without odour. This modern system developed in Sweden (www.separett.com) conquers unpleasant odours.
