Eco-friendly hotels: a sustainable break

Book
The eco-friendly hotels of Catalonia take care of the visitor while being respectful of the environment. This sustainable philosophy is applied in a transversal way to make better use of natural resources and to reduce the carbon footprint.

In Catalonia, the sun shines practically all year round. To make the most of the hours of sunlight and to reduce electricity consumption, some hotels have oriented the buildings to the South. Doesnít it just feel so comforting when you open the curtains and light bathes the whole room? With this ecological guideline, you have this guaranteed and, in addition, it saves energy.

They also implement other green solutions, such as the installation of plant covers. These green insulators increase your comfort throughout your stay, during the hotter months you will be cooler and in winter you will have a much more pleasant temperature. Along with this, the use of LED lighting, the recycling of waste, and using PVC-free materials are part of this list of responsible practices.

The design and interior decoration are also committed to the environment. The rooms are decorated with recycled materials; the sheets, towels, bathrobes and other textile materials of the establishment are 100% ecological. They also give you natural soaps, with beneficial properties for your skin.

At the table, eco-friendly hotels introduce you to Catalan cuisine by preparing menus with products with zero food miles. These freshly picked products have more properties, better flavour and a stronger aroma because they are fresh. In addition, they do not receive conservation or freezing treatments that are required by those that come from further away.

Do you want to have a sustainable break? Catalan eco-friendly hotels are there for you.
