The essence of the ecological Hotel Lurdeia, Basque Country, lies in the communication with Mother Earth in a sustainable space, settling its roots in an ecological agricultural activity. Observe from within, everything around you is sacred. Love it. In the communion with the sacred, in the little things, in the contact with the earth, in the natural cycles, in the journey of life, is the treasure that we must defend with universal love in the search for happiness.
The Vice-Ministry of the Environment of the Basque Government has awarded with the European Union’s Ecological Label to Lurdeia Agrotourism. We have obtained the maximum qualification of energy efficiency (Level A) Bioclimatic building by the Basque energy entity.
To obtain sanitary hot water and heating we use biomass (pellet) from the wood of our country’s forests and thermal solar panels from vacuum tubes.
The whole building is heated by underfloor heating because it is more efficient.
All taps and showers are fitted with aerators to reduce water consumption by up to 60
the wc tanks have double-flushing devices.
Most of the breakfast products are of organic origin and local products.
We have been doing organic farming for 30 years and we also plant native species such as oaks, walnuts, ashes, beeches, fruit trees, etc.
All the lighting is done by means of LED lamps and we have installed presence sensors outside as well as in transit areas to optimize consumption.
The electricity we consume is obtained from renewable energies.
We select and classify the waste generated, paper, plastics, packaging, oils for subsequent recycling, etc. We use the organic waste to make compost.
The cleaning and laundry products are ecological with Ecocert or Ecolabel certification.
