Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Dubrovnik villa holidays, Croatia

By sending clients to this Dubrovnik villa we are supporting the local community and economy. The house owner benefits from the direct income of renting the villa and also by bringing travellers to the village the whole community benefits. Local restaurants and taverns, home made souvenir sellers, boat or bus drivers etc. When we send clients to this destination we always recommend domestic services (services run by local people). For each of our travellers we pay tourist tax to the local community, they direct that money to developing the area. In the last decade in Croatia it was very popular to sell old houses and properties. However, many people have realised that renovating old houses into villas or apartments is a much better idea than selling it. We support that idea and we do our efforts to promote and rent those properties.

We encourage travellers to be more responsible with water waste, and we inform all our travellers before their tour about area, especially travelers on tours when they are in protected areas, sea or countryside. We inform travellers about local cultures and habits, we inform our travellers that leaving litter in the sea or beach could have very negative consequences to the fish, sea ecosystem and finally themselves. As a company we employ company wide responsible policies such as using recycled paper, recycling all our waste paper (brochures, etc) and conducting all our correspondence and promotion via the internet and email, minimizing the amount of paper used for our activities.

We support different local ecological associations and our staff were directly involved in afforestation (planting of pine trees in Dubrovnik area after fire disaster in summer 2007). Besides this afforestation during autumn 2008 and a couple of seasons before, we directly support and we are involved in the ecological action of cleaning the sea. This underwater cleaning is ecological action which is support by local diving centers and fisherman's associations. The planting trees and underwater cleaning are ecological actions which we have supported for many years; moreover I am one of founders of this ecological association.

1 Reviews of Dubrovnik villa holidays, Croatia

3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed on 18 Aug 2010 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The Views from the Villa are stunning!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Not suitable for people who find it difficult to walk up steep hills.
The set meal (3 courses with wine) at the Konoba Asterea- Mlini for 85 kuna is extremely good value and well worth the trek up the hill.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

It definitely benefited local people, as the owner moves out of her home for 4 months of the year in order to repay her mortgage on the Villa. As for the environmental impact, I find it difficult to comment on, as tourism and the environment do not go hand in hand.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was very relaxing and our hostess was most helpful. Very Enjoyable.
