Eco friendly practices
Riva Bella's bungalows are totally ecological in their design and construction. All building stages include natural processes intended to save energy: rock wool insulation, thermo-reflector blinds that keep the accommodation cool and avoid the use of air conditioning, windows with double glazing, silent ceiling fans with low energy consumption, A+ type household appliances, LED bulbs. Even the paint used for these buildings is natural, based on algae.
