Our eco-hotel is situated in a unique environment of rare beauty which has been protected for many years by the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago.
The love and respect that connects us to this wonderful island has led us to create a structure with a family atmosphere and a low environmental impact.
In this direction, in 2003, we decided to become part of “Legambiente Turismo” which is a national project for the environmentally friendly development and promotion of local resources and created the largest Italian environmental organization (Legambiente).
The Eco-Hotel Montemerlo has been using only energy from renewable sources since 2012, which is partly produced by our own photovoltaic system, whereby we receive the prestigious award of the European Ecolabels EU (IT/051/018) which provides the products and services of the European Communities certifies a low environmental impact.
In 2022 the Hotel Montemerlo obtains the Cets2 Certification and becomes the official partner of Europarc and the Tuscan Archipelago National Park.
In 2022 it obtains also the Certification Electric Friendly by Motus-E.
