Green holidays

If you're a fan of a green and healthy lifestyle, nature and the countryside environment, then "Green Holidays" will be just for you! Look for the countryside accommodations, open farms and eating places which have received the "Green Certificate". That means that everything has been carefully considered to make sure that management of the facilities is environment friendly while ensuring comfort and amenities for guests. These buildings are in clean and orderly rural environments, and their owners have tended well to the surrounding landscape. Many of these are traditional family farms, with buildings made of and filled with materials that are natural and do not harm people's health - timber, rocks and bricks, reed roofs, as well as modern materials which reduce the likelihood of allergies. Interior design in these buildings also is based on environmentally friendly paints and other finishing elements. Cleaning and laundry substances are also ones with ecological certification. Smoking is not permitted in any of the facilities. Many of the "Green Certificate" holders offer home-grown and locally grown food to guests, and there are various open-air activities available such as bicycling, hiking and animal watching. Some facilities are appropriate for children, with playgrounds, pets and amenities for families with very small children. Many of the guest houses offer traditional saunas. The hosts can tell you interesting things about their surroundings.
