we take care of what we have been given!

La finestra sul fiume is located in a natural park of rare beauty and luxurious nature. The river Mincio that runs aside the properties is one of Italy's cleanest rivers. It is full of fish and is the breeding ground for an extraordinary amount of species of birds and other aquatic animals. At la finestra sul fiume we want to protect the future of this natural environment that has been given to us. We are aware of our responsibility to preserve and take care of it to minimise the effects of our presence of the environment.

Since opening in April 2006 we are taking small steps towards becoming sustainable:

- We continue to plant native trees and flowers;
- We only use natural fertilisers;
- We recycle glass, metal, plastic and paper;
- We encourage our guests to limit their use of water, energy and washing liquids during their stay;
- Continuous reflection, revision and implementation of our sustainability project.
