The good news is that there is no shortage of eco-friendly hotels and resorts where you can enjoy quality time with your husband or wife without worrying that your time there is going to leave a dent on the future of the planet!
Luxury in Milan
Located on the Via dell’Orso, the Hotel Milano Scala claims to be the city’s first zero-emission hotel. The hotel has a 4 star rating and it has a very private feel, given that it has just 62 rooms. Right in the heart of the city, the hotel is in the perfect location for those who want to explore the city, with some of the main attractions within an easy walking distance. The hotel also has a number of suites available for those who want more space and the hotel guarantees that there are no CO2 emissions to pollute the atmosphere.
The hotel planners have taken steps to ensure that the heating and air conditioning are both eco-friendly. There is an automated system that controls the heating and cooling of the building and keeps energy consumption to a minimum.
Luxury on Lake Garda
Located on Lake Garda, the Lefay Resort & Spa Lago di Garda is in the heart of one of the most beautiful areas of Italy. The hotel has around 11 hectares of terraces and gardens that lead down to the lake and with 93 rooms and suites, there is plenty of accommodation for you to choose from. The spa is one of the biggest attractions of the hotel and it is a great place for you to relax, feel pampered and recharge your batteries.
The structure of the hotel has been designed to fit into the hillsides so the energy requirements are not the same as they are for other buildings. The windows of the hotel have been designed with athermic glass so they can help to heat and cool the building as needed. The hotel has been constructed with natural materials that have been sourced locally. The use of biomass, turbines and an absorption cooling system all help to keep the hotel as eco-friendly as possible. The hotel has also published details on the percentage of energy that is generated on-site and details of the reduction on carbon emissions.
These are just two of the eco-friendly establishments in beautiful Italy where you could enjoy the honeymoon of your dreams, but there are many more that you could consider. Why not head for the Alps in the north or to the beautiful coast? With so many amazing locations for your honeymoon you could even consider a tour.
