How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...

Economic responsibility

  • We buy all our produce from local small holdings and small producers and encourage our customers to use the local family run restaurants and supermarket.
  • We are sponsoring Dimitris who makes traditional stringed instruments with wood that he collects from the mountains and help him sell his instruments by setting up a website.
  • We offer our time and support to local organisations (cooking, running stalls etc). We help at the local bazaars where money raised is used to promote community activities such as dancing, music, trips etc.

Environmental responsibility

  • The garden around the centre is grown organically, using a water-wise approach. We compost our garden and kitchen waste and recycle all glass, plastic, cardboard, metal, paper, etc.
  • Our hot water is solar generated and we are currently looking at obtaining all our power consumption requirements by using solar photovoltaic cells.
  • We are active members of Gaia, a local environmental organisation whose aim is to preserve the beautiful environment of The Mani.

Social responsibility

  • We have made a commitment to being socially responsible. 10% of our profits are to be put back into our local community.
  • Carers are under constant stress and pressure looking after family members with special needs. The aim of our trust is to offer carers unable to afford it, the opportunity of having a well earned break at the centre.
