Have you ever had the experience of a holiday in a Rural Resort?
We have installed two photovoltaic power generation systems, two heat pumps that run on the water of the river Lambro, three condensing boilers, recovery of storm water, LED lighting, class A structures, thermal solar systems along with sophisticated consumption control and heat recoveries.
In addition, the ancient mill adjacent to the hotel produces electricity through a mechanical propagation system using the old wheel, so evocative of its rural past. The continuous research and development implemented by the team created by Andrea Camesasca, was an incentive for a number of partners to decide to build the first ever eco-village in Italy "the Eco-village of Baggero".
What do you choose to do every day for your planet?
The rural resort "Il Corazziere" and "Casa del Mulino" is the first example of sustainable tourism in an area that has been a clear example of exorbitant industrialisation. We define ourselves as green because we have introduced the most innovative energy-saving systems, from system automation control of the two hotels to the production of power exploiting the sun and water.
Reuse Reduce Recycle
The entrances to the eco-village consist in the railway station (already fully redeveloped), parks and pedestrian and cycle paths, green pathways and river routes. The Eco-village also features a natural oasis, green paths and facilities, an efficient ecological platform and a large state-of-the-art water treatment plant. The farms are also currently being redeveloped to continue their farming activities and to exchange produce with neighbouring villages and local hotels and similar structures. We have created and constituted a business transfer implementation plan; in fact, our example was analysed in the research study conducted by Cerif - Prof. Devecchi from the Cattolica University in Milan entitled “Strategies and problems of Family Businesses”
Despite being a historic company, we view ourselves as a start-up enterprise, as we recently made a courageous choice and "changed skin" by investing in a new hotel accommodation concept that combines the green and Blue Economy aspects along with the Three R's (reuse, reduce and recycle) concept. The structure employs youngsters who live close to the rural resort, 80% of them even live in the local borough, they have jobs and autonomy both in routine activities and in the analysis of promotion strategies; my objective is not simply to delegate and supervise them, but also to INSPIRE them on the subjects of hospitality and sustainability.
