All about our B&B

A cottage with a reduced environmental impact with your well-being at the centre.

Features and little rules

Read all these paragraphs carefully.

The B&B Scacciapensieri was designed and is managed with the idea of ​​minimizing the environmental footprint and at the same time putting the well-being of our guests in the foreground. For this reason, some solutions have been adopted, that require some simple behaviors:

The adoption of phytoremediation and sub-irrigation of the garden requires us not to throw any type of object including paper in the toilets.

For the same reason, it is necessary to use 100% organic biodegradable soaps and shampoos of completely vegetable origin (provided).

For everyone’s well-being, inside the structure, please do not use your shoes (refuge slippers provided); do not smoke; to use computers, cell phones and smartphones in moderation.

IMPORTANT: at the moment we DO NOT accept pets, not even small ones.
