An eco hotel in Trentino

What does it mean to be an eco hotel in Trentino?
The Monari family has managed the hotel Cevedale (previously an Osteria) for more than 100 years: if we have got this far we owe it to our values and the profound respect we have for the environment around us.

Ecolabel certification: we are an eco hotel in Trentino

In 2008 we received the Ecolabel quality mark that certifies the best companies and services from an environmental point of view. With this in mind we made important choices which we are proud of and we want to share them with our guests:

-    our electricity comes in part from renewable sources
-    we use locally sourced food products as much as possible
-    we use environmentally friendly cleaning products and paper.

One of our future objectives is to connect the hotel to a district heating system and gradually replace old appliances with new energy-efficient ones.

Informing our guests: the most important thing for an eco hotel in Trentino
