Hotel certaldo

Eco Hotel

Hotel Certaldo is an eco-friendly facility, for your eco-friendly holiday in Tuscany!
Right after the quality and the comfort of our rooms, Hotel Certaldo also invests in eco-friendliness, with renewable energy sources and the safeguard of the territory. Every single day, with small but significant precautions, Hotel Certaldo contributes to diminish its impact on the land and to favour the environmental balance of its context.

Hotel Certaldo and the old watermill
The most important peculiarity of Hotel Certaldo in this matter is undoubtedly the use of hydroelectric energy: our Hotel Certaldo is the result of the recent restoration of the old watermill from the 16th century, which belonged to the Medici family and was the most important one in the whole Val d’ Elsa territory. The watermill had indeed been used for centuries to grind wheat, producing flour. After this period and for the whole 20th century, the watermill was used to produce electric energy for the whole town of Certaldo. Just as hundreds of years ago, Hotel Certaldo is now striving to return to the production hydroelectric energy with the help of the constant flow of the Elsa river, the most important of this area, which gives the name to the same territory. This will enable us to produce the energy we need, still with respect for the environment.

Hotel Certaldo’s Garden

Hotel Certaldo has its own private garden! A space of 5000 square meters, a small green island bordered by the Elsa river and by the artificial channel of the 16th century. This green space is a true oasis close to the town center: many indigenous plants grow here, as well as flowers and trees planted by man. It is also the natural habitat of many animal species: herons, magpies, nutrias, pheasants, water turtles, mallards. In the earliest hours of the day it is not uncommon to spot some deer pacing around the garden!

Hotel Certaldo for Recycling

Here at Hotel Certaldo we divide the waste in a systematic way, differentiating amongst paper, glass, plastic and organic waste, in order to contribute as much as possible to recycling. Coffee grounds are also often used as fertilizer for the plants in our garden…caring for the environment and saving money with home remedies!

Breakfast at Hotel Certaldo

Safeguarding the planet also means preparing home-made food with fresh and genuine ingredients. Every morning pies are baked at Hotel Certaldo, along with biscuits, bread and focaccia, just as you would find in a home! The recipes are the very same of our mothers and grandmothers…and you can taste the difference! You can enjoy all this at our buffet breakfast, available from 7.30 am to 11 am! At Hotel Certaldo we only use local products, such as milk and yogurt from Tuscan producers, marmalades, Tuscan cold cuts and the famous onion marmalade from Certaldo, made with onions grown in the fields of Certaldo, not far from our Hotel.
