Sustainable  Holiday in Val d'Ega

In harmony with nature

A green valley. In fact, very green!

Val d'Ega: Emerald forests and lush green meadows, embraced by ancient rock giants - and although it is only a small valley, the effort to operate in an ecologically sustainable manner and to constantly break new ground in the direction of sustainability is all the greater. So "green" here is not just nature.
