Using energy responsibly

  • Using energy responsibly

    If you are interested in using less energy whilst in Italy, there are a few small actions that can make a huge difference. In the middle of summer, for instance, temperatures are high and it can seem difficult to keep your villa cool. We would suggest keeping all doors and windows closed during the day - to allow the air conditioning to cool the villa - and opening windows in the evening to allow a breeze.

    If you are worried about finding your way back to your villa’s front door after an evening at a local restaurant, you don’t need to keep indoor lights on. Most villas will have a low energy consuming light outside the villa which will help guide you back. Plus, any lights left on during the evening can attract insects. This way, when you return home, you will be able to rest and have a good sleep.

    Since sustainability is a collaborative effort, we as a company highly encourage our owners to use renewable energy where possible. Many owners have solar panels and some even have hybrid car charging points. One of our villas that has both of these features is the charming La Casa di Radda, located in the town of Radda in Chianti. It has an elegant modern interior and is within walking distance of this beloved Tuscan town.
