Responsible tourism: Greece bed & breakfast accommodation, Pelion

Environment

We depend on the sustainable natural beauty of the Pelion peninsula which draws visitors all year through its diversity of pristine mountain, forest & sea ecosystems along with its many small charming villages. Not exploited or used for mass tourism development, Pelion has remained untouched due to its ‘off the beaten track’ location, being at a distance from major airports & cities.

Our policy over the last 5 years has been to develop authentic and sustainable activities reflecting these qualities and to do this we are helped by a network of trusted professional guides who are chosen not only by their service but also through their contribution in maintaining and working in harmony with the local environment.

Our base, a renovated traditional Pelion stone mansion with one meter thick stone walls is itself an ecologically friendly building and was designed to maintain a constant living temperature during Summer & Winter without need for air conditioning. Recently we invested in environmentally friendly systems for water and energy conservation such as heat on demand sinks in the kitchen area, a heat pump system for the general hot water use with a high energy efficiency negating the use of Petrol or Gas, and conversion of all our lighting to LED along with movement sensitive lighting in the most used areas.

Community

Our focus is on the provision of an ‘authentic experience’ which is rooted in ‘real Greece’ with all the best that has to offer. It is especially true in this respect that Community must go hand in hand with Environment. A small guest house, we nevertheless contribute strongly through employment and after ten years here we are integrated into the local village & area and are more than happy to share our local knowledge with guests on everything from festivals, food & trip planning, local markets & crafts in the area, to how to say good morning (Kalimera!) in Greek.

In renovating our stone house we specifically chose not to extend the original house with its 8 rooms because we felt we wanted to be able to get to know the guests, something not possible with a ‘mass tourism’ approach. Furthermore, the trips you will experience on your holiday directly support the excellent local guides we have have selected whose contribution and positive impact on their community is proportionally very large. For all our activities we draw on local companies and expertise, helping funnel money back into the local economy.
