LaatuLomat have been providing sustainbility accommodation for 25 years.We are located in the village of Kaskii in Juva, which is a nationally valuable village landscape and part of the Saimaa Geopark area.
Here are the things we consider important:
We try to develop our activities in such a way that our customers are satisfied with their holidays. A good indicator for this is that we have many regular customers and usually those who come once, come again.
Renewable energy and energy efficiency
10 of our rental properties are heated energy-efficiently with geothermal energy and in these properties hot water is also produced with geothermal energy.
Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery.
More than half of our properties use self-generated solar electricity.We have solar panel systems with a total capacity of 30 kw.With sunny weather, we also have enough energy for sales.
We use new energy efficient appliances and LED lighting.
We buy our electricity from the local Lumme energy company, which also buys the excess electricity produced by solar energy from us.
Each accommodation has its own bins for mixed waste and combustible waste.The bins are always emptied before new guests arrive. There are composting bins for bio-waste and separate bins for glass and metal. Customers are instructed on how to sort their waste.
Cleanliness, comfort, recycling
Every time there is a change of guests, the accommodation is cleaned by our staff inspector , we have a final cleaning service included in the rental price for all our properties.
If you have a pet with you, our staff will always do an even more thorough final cleaning.
In our accommodation, guests use linen or recycled cotton tablecloths, cotton kitchen towels and hand towels to reduce waste and the use of disposable paper.
Sustainable repair, construction and environmental management
Most of our sites are built from wood and we have chosen hard-wearing and easy-to-clean materials for the surfaces.
All accommodation undergoes an "annual maintenance" at least once a year.
The environment is constantly maintained (beaches, nearby woods, yards).Bushes and aquatic vegetation are mowed once a year, more often if necessary.
During the construction phase, most of the work is done by the owner and local labour is employed.
Development of the accommodation business
We are working for the long term and want to develop as an accommodation company while learning new things all the time.
We are open to new ideas and development.
Customers are instructed to respect nature
