Green holidays & wellness on Lake Como
Speaking about green holidays we shared about our green practices, the opportunity to be candidate for the EU Ecolabel and the efforts we made and still are making to improve walking, hiking and biking paths to offer a safe and beautiful place to live outside for the residents and active holidays to our guests. We also spoke about the importance of being bikefriendly and petfriendly and how proud we are to have among our citizens great artists, who with passion and ability are representing Gravedona and Lake Como in Italy and world wide. We cannot forget to mention the change that is happening in many people, a desire of green living is the main reason why the tourism sector is also changing so quickly. A part from organic products and green practices, having a style of life closer to the rhythmn of nature , more relaxed and livable (allowing you understand your limits and take a pause where it is needed) which is more sustainable, is what is needed to survive in a always fast and faster world where you are required to work more, to run, to be efficient. At Residence Villa Paradiso we are fully coherent with this vision for green living, even more so in our Wellness & Hair Spa where you can relax (soft sauna, steam bath, emotion showers, tea corner & relaxation area or music & aroma therapy) and try our featuring massages and treatments to hair and sculp with certified organic products.
