The main objective of Albergo Diffuso Volterra is to create a model of sustainable hospitality and sustainable food, oriented to the future, good for man and the planet. We believe that through the principle of replacing resources, humanity can create everything it needs without causing problems to the planet. For us it is absolutely possible to live, work, do industry, travel, discover and have fun while preserving the ecosystem and our health.
We respect the environment and all forms of living being
Our restaurants are 100% Plant Based, with products that are as organic and biodynamic as possible selected in the small local farms. Our restaurants are “without damage”, in terms of animal exploitation and in terms of pollution due to intensive farming practices. For cleaning we use non-toxic products obtained without the use of animal derivatives. Laundry detergents, dishwashers, window cleaning, flooring, sanitary ware are all natural and environmentally sustainable.
We reduce consumption
We use electricity exclusively from renewable and Italian resources, we are certified by the Life Gate circuit. The lighting of the premises is entirely LED, does not contain gases harmful to health or toxic substances and there are no UV emissions harmful to humans. We carry out constant monitoring and constant tracking of consumption.
We reduce transport and waste
The Life Bistrot and Domus Lucumoni restaurants use beverage supply systems through dedicated plugs, water, wine and beer are supplied without waste of bottles. Our Bistro works by “food by weight”, service system is managed with smart cards. This allows customers to eat according to their appetite avoid food waste. We reduce the use of plastic materials and every kind of product obtained from processes that use fossil resources.
We promote sustainable tourism
We promote history and culture, experience in organic SPA, in farms and wine companies that use natural and sustainable farming methods that improve the soil structure and increase the fertility of the earth. Through our experiences we create tours of one or more days to discover the old history and local populations in 100% electric cars, the territory by bike and ebike, the Mediterranean on a sailing boat.
We preserve history
Our hotel is an open-air museum. In 2001 we chose to start a private archaeological excavation campaign to bring to light the ancient history that appeared during the works. We had found an Etruscan road and an Etruscan well, a Roman pavement and a medieval pavement. At the end of the excavations we chose to install a transparent floor to preserve and allow everyone the sight of these finds. Today we are custodians of these very important findings. The Hotel, the Restaurants, the homes and the apartments have been restored using mainly eco-compatible products and materials such as stones of local origin, plaster and natural paint.
