Go green on your next holiday by renting an eco friendly holiday home. The owners of these holiday homes have gone the extra mile to make their properties eco friendly, allowing you to have have green holidays without lifting a finger.
You don’t need to compromise on comfort by going green. Choose a villa with a solar-heated pool, or a cosy cottage that has its warmth generated by ground source heat pumps. Other eco friendly facilities and features include photovoltaic panels and solar power, water conservation, composting and geo-thermal pumps.
Even if you need to fly to reach your holiday destination, offset your carbon emissions through your airline. When you get there, rent a bicycle to explore the local area, or if you're planning longer day trips, use public transport where possible. If you do need to hire a car, pick the most fuel-efficient model on offer.
