FEATURES OF THE AGRITURISMO AND ITS RESTORATION
The agriturismo was completely restored (2004) using environmentally sympathetic construction
techniques which respected the architectural features of the old building. The beamed and tiled
roof was built incorporating a natural ventilation system for greater summer comfort in the attic
space, thus avoiding the unhealthy and ecologically unsustainable use of air conditioning. Particular
attention was paid to the choice of materials: wood was used for the reconstruction of the structural
elements of the ceilings, the architraves and the porticos and it was treated using a completely
natural wood stain and protector. All the floors are in reclaimed terra-cotta. The internal and external
fixtures and fittings are made from hardwood. Cork panels were used in the roof and wall insulation
while the internal and external plaster and painting are constituted from natural lime to guarantee
the maximum benefit and health of the building.
The carefully planned electrical system, the solar panels both for heating the water and the
underfloor and wall central heating, the proper disposal of refuse and the use of products which
respect the environment, the use of renewable energy from an energy company, all demonstrate
the low environmental impact of the building and the farm . The project of the garden was done
following special attention in using bushes and trees that need low water and saving water with
special cistern for rain and automatic irrigation. Since we are committed to the protection of the
environment, we encourage the guests to ask for new towels only if required and to drink the
special tap water coming from Sibillini National Park (one of the best water in Italy).
We set in 2010 a Roof Integrated Photovoltaic System for electricity production ( among the
first ones in Le Marche) that ensure 13.900 Kw/year production and almost completely cover the
energy need in agriturismo and in the winery. In this manner we avoid the emission of 9,1 ton/
year of CO2. We believe in renewable energy and in a "green sustainable agriculture".
For our commitment to environmental sustainability we received the Quality Isnart Label, the
Legambiente Turismo Ecolabel and the acknowledgment of Marche region.
