Our carbon footprint becomes more important everyday which is why we decided to create a low impact, environmentally friendly hotel. By staying at La Posada de San Marcos you too will be helping preserve the environment and be able to enjoy the sensation created by energy efficient, carbon neutral accommodation while maintaining an excellent standard of quality. We have created a low impact environmentally friendly building using as much of the original material while introducing modern day elements. The stone in the perimeter walls is from the old house as is the sand used to mix the mortar; the roof tiles were carefully removed and have been reused to ensure the building blends in with the rest of the village when seen from the Peña. We also managed to save enough to use them as wall light in the public areas of the house. All the old chestnut beams and the original front door were renovated by our local carpenters and we actually made a small wardrobe in one of the bedrooms using one of the old doors from the original house. The majority of the furniture used is antique and many an hour was put into restoring it – each room is decorated in a different and rather eclectic way! Lots of the old bottles we are using for decoration were found in the house and as time goes by we continue to decorate the house with items usually found up in somebody’s attic!
