At La Voce del Fiume, respect for the environment and for the territory is expressed in many ways, starting with the conservative recovery of the historic building that houses it, respecting the originality of the places and building sustainability, as well as the use of materials and local resources. Everything has been brought to light with respect for its past, so much so that it has become a virtuous example (of good practice) to follow.
Respect and protection for the environment: in implementing all energy, electricity and water saving choices; in the choice of organic food for breakfast, all at km 0, to create appetizing and genuine breakfasts and tastings, where the "home made" principle applies and respect for tradition and ancient recipes; in the use of natural detergents for cleaning environments and people, such as the "artisanal soap" based on olive oil present in the "La Voce del Fiume" branded courtesy line; in choosing to focus on "green mobility", equipping the structure with pedal assisted bikes to offer its guests a new way of moving around and discovering Basilicata, always in line with the company philosophy. The bike is not only a means of locomotion but also and above all a "lifestyle". Pedaling means always traveling with one eye ahead. The perspective is constantly changing, and it is precisely with this means that the sense of travel acquires its meaning. Trekking on foot, on horseback or by bicycle are genuine passions that open the mind, break down barriers, and must be cultivated and disseminated as much as possible, for a better and more aware future!
La Voce del Fiume has chosen sustainability, as a style of welcome and identity, addressing above all those travelers who are attentive and respectful of the environment and the territory, the economy and local communities. La Voce del Fiume is a member of the Legambiente tourism circuit and Ecobnb green travel.
