Ecology plays an increasingly important role in tourism, it is no coincidence that a sector that is very attentive to environmental protection is developing, and some structures offer eco lodges and alternative solutions more in contact with nature.
Holidays in contact with nature in eco-lodges are a new form of eco-sustainable development of tourism on Lake Garda.
An eco lodge is a modern holiday home that respects the environment and assumes great attention to the environment.
The eco-lodge concept aims for natural products (including food), natural environment, sustainable waste system and the elimination of toxic or non-biodegradable chemicals.
The mini-villa should integrate as much as possible into the local nature: it generally has a rural context with local characteristics in the choice of materials and furnishings.
Renewable energies also play an important role in the sustainability strategy, as do measures to prevent pollution and water waste.
The choice of the Eco Lodge also has a social significance: On the one hand, the guests should be informed as much as possible about the importance of a healthy ecosystem and the regional ecosystem, which should raise awareness of life in and with the nature. On the other hand, mainly workers from the region should be employed, who should also receive fair wages.
A holiday in an eco lodge is particularly suitable for those who care about nature and want to relax in a peaceful place. Business travelers are drawn to these vacation homes just as much as families or backpackers.
A good example of the eco-lodge concept is Il Cisternino in Gargnano. Located on a mountain in a beautiful and peaceful green area, you have a wonderful view of Lake Garda, just a few kilometers away.
Photovoltaic systems heat the pool, among other things, and the house has a beautiful garden with olive trees. The modern furnished and equipped house has been renovated with natural materials.
