Are you a nature lover, want to explore the beautiful landscapes of Europe and are looking for a unique accommodation? The Dutch booking platform Nature house (nature.house) offers the perfect solution.
The company, founded in 2009, offers more than 17,000 holiday accommodations spread throughout all of Europe. The best thing about these houses is that they are all located in the middle of nature, away from the masses and holiday parks. This gives you the opportunity to experience the nature of Europe in another way.
For example, imagine hiking through the magnificent mountains in Switzerland and at the end of the day return to your cabin in the mountains or forest and cozy up. Or book a house at a lake in Finland, Croatia, Sweden, or perhaps Italy and take a refreshing morning dive when you wake up. Europe offers you mesmerizing and diverse landscapes which are worth seeing and experiencing, so what better way to do that than staying in the middle of them?
The vision of Nature house is to give back to nature and connect people with it at the same time. They give back by donating €1 of every booking to local nature projects, such as the protection of the brown bear in Italy or the protection of the living environment of the adder in Belgium. They have also planted more than 1 million trees in Africa already! With Nature house you are not only able to enjoy the nature but you contribute to nature projects as well. If you want a completely sustainable holiday, this is also possible as Nature house offers over 1200 accommodations where you can have an eco-friendly stay; some have their own garden where you can pick fruits and vegetables, solar panels, or green energy.
