Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We aim to share our experiences of this beautiful area of the Peloponnese with visitors who care about the quality of their food and the preservation of the natural environment. Lavender Lodge is intended to be a tranquil retreat for guests to enjoy local foods, explore the bountiful wildlife and nature in our gardens and grove and to receive therapeutic wellness treatments such as massages as well as participating in cultural archaeological visits and appreciating nature in areas of outstanding beauty such as waterfalls.

Energy efficiency: We heat our properties by using wood-burning stoves to burn our own wood which has been naturally pruned each year from our olive trees. We heat our water with solar panels.

Recycling: We provide separate recycling bins for our guests at Lavender Lodge and we dispose of these appropriately, recycling as much paper, plastic cardboard and glass as we can.

Water use and conservation: we encourage all guests to save water through the use of appropriate signage. We use waterbutts and onsite underground reservoirs around the property to conserve natural rain-water for irrigation of the land and for any other appropriate use. The packages we offer entirely support and uphold the preservation of ancient monuments and archaeology, culture and cultural practice in our local area of the Peloponnese.

Minimising negative Impact : we run every trip from a standpoint of environmental conservation, highlighting issues of pollution, litter or any action contrary to the preservation of the ancient artifacts or cultural importance attached to the sites which we visit.

People

This archaeological tour is designed to promote and support the preservation of the ancient sites and the cutural artifacts of this area of the Peloponnese through educating visitors to the ancient sites.

We also encourage visitors to support the local craft makers and artisans who produce a great range of informative material and memorabilia in the museums and galleries.

Before each trip all guests are given information covering the history (both social and political) of the place to be visited in the form of a talk followed by a guided tour and they are provided with access to up to date guide book material.

We run educational guided cultural trips to Olympia (site and museum), the museum of Hora, Nestorís Palace, Pylos Castle and harbour, Epidauros (ancient amphitheatre), Messene and Mycenae with the intention of patronising local social and cultural points of interests.
