21 April 2009
For those thinking responsible travel means expensive travel - think again. Holiday-Rentals' property 85803, the 30,000m Finca de Arrieta estate in north Lanzarote, is offering travellers a 20% discount until the end of June, providing the perfect opportunity to jet off for a great value, eco-friendly spring break. A week at the luxurious two bedroom villa is now just £820 per property per week (normally £1,036), and the unique Mongolian yurt is now £410 per property per week (down from £518).

Both the villa and yurt are run on alternative energy and the estate is set in a fabulous valley with spectacular sea and mountain views. These enchanting holiday homes have been tastefully styled using local stonework, wood and original handpicked antiques with influences from Morocco and Indonesia. Mature exotic gardens surround the properties and are full of mango, banana, guava and lime fruit trees, as well as various vegetables. All guests have access to the heated pool, chill-out area, covered Polynesian-style day-bed, outside kitchen and gas BBQ.

Kids will be entertained by the menagerie of animals, bikes, trampoline and ping pong table, while adults will enjoy exploring the historical sites, gorgeous beaches and striking volcanic landscape. The owners are on hand to provide help and advice on what to see and do, where to eat and even which local wines to take home. They will also happily supply fresh fruit, seasonal vegetables and eggs from their free-range chickens. Who knew going eco was so easy?
