Living in harmony with nature
We feel the need to run our hotel and farm sustainably and to preserve the earth as we know and love it as a place worth living in for future generations.
We are aware of the high quality of our living space and
and would like to handle our resources with care.

Our farm is entirely supplied with our own drinking water, which is of excellent quality, has the best
drinking properties and is piped directly to the hotel.

The whole farm is heated biologically with wood chips.
The wood comes from our own forest.
