Working with Nature the Santa Tresa way!

We are extremely proud to be certified organic, but we are so much more than that – it is our way of life, our mind-set and not just the absence of pesticides that we are talking about here.

We take a completely holistic approach to everything we do in order to ensure that we preserve the natural environment, giving something back where ever we can, and planning  for the long-term.  For the last few years we have been renovating the original estate buildings, re-using the stone and wood found in the tumble-down buildings, and in so-doing not only re-create the ancient buildings as truly as possible, but greatly reduce waste.  We use no plastic at all on the estate and produce our own electricity using a large solar panel – there is plenty of sunshine to harness!  We work with nature, respecting the local environment and planning for long-term sustainability.

 

 

Careful work

environment, giving something back wherever
we can.
