Travel responsibly and choose an eco-friendly accommodation
Be environmentally conscious even on holiday
Wood that makes you want to stroke it and smell it, glass features that reveal beautiful views, reclaimed materials that make you feel right at home. But mostly plenty of space for nature to be lived inside and outside with special consideration towards the land and local traditions.
When you choose an environmentally conscious holiday you discover a new world made of natural elements, sustainability focused features, small details that integrate harmoniously with the natural surroundings. Knowing you are doing your share to look after the environment adds a little extra feeling-good to your holiday.
This is the philosophy at the heart of the places we have picked for you: commitment to nature protection, mindful design and max comfort with a minimum footprint.
