Venus Albir, the First Eco Hotel in Spain

More and more eco-hotels are opening up around the world, like the no frills eco-chic one (soon to be) in Montreal, the one planned for NYC or the Brando for holidays on a green paradise island. If you’re looking for eco accommodation in Europe, check out the Austrian BioHotels, promoters of the first bio hotel recognised by The European Community in Spain. This bio aparthotel is called Venus Albir and you can find it on the Costa Blanca. The main idea behind this tourist complex is the geo/bio construction which included building with local and natural materials such as thermal clay blocks, marble, cork insulation, ecological paints, wooden furniture, cotton sheets and latex mattresses. Solar panels to heat the water, rainwater collectors to water the plants and last but not least: the organic restaurant form part of this eco project. Prices vary depending on the season and lie between €47 and €80 for a double room, with special prices for families. For more information check out their web site, blog and videos where you can start with a virtual tour of the bio hotel. ::Venus Albir ::via EcoHabitar
