There is an amazing variety of accommodation possibilities when going on eco holidays. Whether you want to rent a hotel room, holiday house or stay in a tent, there are many available places to choose from. Most of them offer meals, usually with certified organic products but some are self-catered. Quite often owners of holiday homes in rural areas grow their own fruit and vegetables, always making sure they also use fresh local products. It is said that about 50% on average use organic products to prepare their meals. When choosing a self-catering option it is also possible to purchase some local organically-grown food, home baked bread, cheese and jams. Having a box of fresh fruit and veggies delivered to your doors can really make your day.

Some of the eco friendly accommodation places will also have environment friendly solutions such as rainwater harvesting, solar panels or wind turbins providing electricity in the area. Of course for some traveler these elements might not make much difference, as long as the lights work and there is some hot water. But it makes a huge difference to the environment so the benefits of supporting such places are immense.
