Your Environmentally Friendly Green Holidays at Melanya

Finding a truly zero carbon green holiday often amounts to degrees of compromise with carbon offset arrangements balancing travel, accommodation and facilities. A Melanya mountain holiday is about as close as you can get to a truly eco friendly green holiday, together with a positive impact on the environment and sustainable tourism for the village and the region. If you cycled to Melanya and didn't use the woodburner, you're carbon footprint during your break would be truly zero.

The electricity used in your green holiday accommodation comes in the form of hydroelectricity from the Kardzhali Dam which supplies renewable energy to thousands of homes in the region. The water supply is from natural mountain springs and the region boasts a number of spa resorts and enjoys legends of the healing powers of the Rhodope Mountains spring water. Your organic food, including vegetables, meat and dairy products are sourced largely within the village and a majority of the mountain activities available at Melanya are carbon neutral. A truly green holiday.

Almost every species of european birds of prey flourish in the Eastern Rhodopes together with a plethora of rare and exotic plants, birds, mammals and insects, some of which are found nowhere else in the world. Despite the numerous green governmental and environmental bodies that ensure the region maintains it's eco diversity, Melanya have been privileged with a small tree planting programme that enables our guests to offset their travel emissions themselves. Green holidays with a difference.
"Wandering off into the mountains and planting my trees felt like one of the most selfless moments I'd had for a long time." M. Hanley
