Poggio di Montedoro Agritourism is the first italian farm holiday establishment to receive the Green Key award due to its outstanding sustainability performance.
This special case history is part of FEE Italia’s project aimed to make a connection between the programmes “Green Key” (eco-label for tourism facilities) and “Green Spikes” (a sustainability path in the rural areas).
Poggio di Montedoro Agritourism is situated in Montefiascone Village, Lazio, in the centre of Italy. The establishment was an ancient farm with five different houses, and it has become a tourist accommodation after a restoration respecting the rural tradition and with a desire to create a well-being experience of total immersion in the beauty of the place.
Gianluca Scagnetti, the owner has opted for a sustainable management of its business in order to reduce as much as possible the impact on the beauty of the surrounding area.
The structure is equipped with both solar and photo voltaic systems that cover the property’s energy consumption.
The Green Key manager of the establishment has received a professional training in sustainable management that supports the process of spreading the right message to the staff and guests and to help to make a difference on an environmental level.
Each apartment is equipped with small information notes focused on daily best practices in order to reduce the consumption of water, energy and waste. The housekeeping staff only changes towels and sheets upon request.
Before the check-out the clients are invited to fulfill a questionnaire to evaluate the environmental performance of the establishment.
Agrotourism is a connected and complementary activity to the agricultural one. Guests can therefore taste the local food produced by the agricultural activity of the establishment.
The spa area is managed with the same environmental principles which includes waste collection, environmental friendly cleaning products, towels changed upon request, plastic-free environment and various water and energy saving procedures.
Poggio di Montedoro Agritourism is a structure that fully embraces the values in the Green Key eco-label and is therefore strongly recommended for guests that are sensitive and aware of the importance of saving the environment.
