Looking for a healthy holiday that will also be kind to the Planet? Check out these top three eco retreats
Be Enviro-Chic in France
La Clairière in France makes every effort to ensure that their escape is ecologically sound. From the organic wool mattress you sleep on at night, right down to the eco friendly cleaning products and biodegradable composting. 100% of their electricity supply is from renewable energy sources and their food is prepared using fresh organic ingredients, locally sourced where possible. This is one retreat you can be sure that respects the environment as much as their guests!
Wow Factor: The lush green Alsace forest setting will set your spirits soaring, plus the immune boosting food is to live for.
Eco-Room with a View in Italy
Possibly the world’s most glamorous eco spa and winner of the the Good Green Design Award in 2013, the Lefay Resort in Italy is a place that takes its eco credentials as seriously as it does its style. Everything from the food to the spa products is organic and natural, even the roofs are covered with lush green vegetation to help them blend into the hillside!
Wow Factor: High-tech eco-elegance with stunning panoramic views of Lake Garda.
Find Your Om in India
SwaSwara in India holds environmental care very close to its OM-shaped heart. Fresh water is a scarce resource at the property so they harvest the rainwater in order to make them self-sufficient – a practice they’ve also extended out to the local school. Any waste water is recycled and used for their organic vegetable gardens and flower beds. This holistic retreat strongly believes in giving back to the land that they feel they have gained so much from.
Wow Factor: a truly restorative oasis of serenity, tranquillity and calm – Ayurvedic treatments so good you’ll be in a constant state of bliss!
