Anyone who is concerned about having a high carbon footprint will be impressed to know that all the facilities at Felicita are powered by solar systems and gas and all effort is put into recycling as much waste as possible.
Felicita’s water supply is sourced directly from a natural stream. It is then delicately purified with a chemical-free filtration system and is 100% pure and safe to drink.
