Rive Gauche Environment and Smoking Policies

We endeavour to be environmentally-friendly by using ecological cleaning products, following organic gardening principles, avoiding toxic sprays, composting green waste and recycling rubbish. A heat exchange system is used for water heating and we have heat pumps in our living areas and in the studio.

The house is double-glazed throughout. While we don't ban smokers, we have a non-smoking policy inside our home and ask that you smoke outside and remove any butts.
