But if you do have to go further afield, make sure it’s to one of these amazing eco-hotels…

The Vigilius Mountain Resort, South Tyrol, Italy
“Eco, not ego” is the motto of the architect of The Vigilius Mountain Resort, which is evident in every aspect of it. The design represents a fallen tree and all materials used are from renewable resources, emphasising the importance of sustainability.

The Vigilius Mountain Resort is located in the isolated Dolomites region of the mountains and is accessible only by cable car, giving guests the rare chance to be cut off from the outside world and enjoy nature. The building itself helps guests to enjoy nature with stunning views from all parts of the hotel and the natural tranquility of the design.

There a loads of eco aspects to this resort, such as the grass roof (which helps to conserve energy), incredibly efficient insulation and the carefull conservation of water, just to name a few. The spot itself offers a great holiday with lots of mountain activities to enjoy throughout the year. If a relaxing holiday is on the cards, then The Vigilius Mountain Resort offers this too with a luxury spa and beautifully isolated location in the Italian Alps.
