On vacation and yet at home: the greenest and most beautiful vacation rentals

According to current figures, holiday apartments are becoming increasingly popular among vacationers. We also think you don’t necessarily need a hotel room for a good holiday. There are various reasons to decide for a vacation apartment, such as your own kitchen or more space compared to a hotel room. When your holiday apartment additionally provides a unique ambiance and breathtaking views, and is even sustainable, holiday can come! Check out the vacation rentals you should keep in mind for your next holiday!

Living environments in the Black Forest: Apartment with lookout

In the popular German holiday region, you can find cozy vacation apartments with plenty of space for yourself. From the balcony or terrace of your living environment in the SCHWARZWALD PANORAMA you enjoy a breathtaking view of Bad Herrenalb and the surrounding mountains. Like the hotel, the vacation rentals meet sustainable requirements: among other things, care products are stored in large, refillable bottles instead of being single-packaged, special lavender bag ‘door signs’ help avoiding unnecessary towel changes, and left-over items are donated to a local social organization. There are 2-rooms and 3-rooms apartments, each including a shower, bathtub, and fully equipped kitchen. You might not expect it, breakfast in the hotel’s restaurant is included and you may also use the hotel’s wellness and sauna area. The perfect combination of a hotel and an apartment!

Dolomit Homes: Cottage below the mountains

Describing the Dolomit Homes as holiday apartments would be an understatement: in the cottages La Sajun and Les Viles you can find two apartments each, which can accommodate up to six guests. The cottage Chalet ‘Mi Amur’ is ideal for large (skiing) groups of up to 12 people. Moreover, there is a drying room for wet ski equipment. The Dolomit Design Chalet, on the other hand, is a romantic, luxurious paradise for a couple, elegantly furnished including an open fireplace hanging from the ceiling. All apartments and houses have a terrace or balcony with a wonderful view.
