Eco Policy

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

Here at Villa Plus we are very conscious of the eco effect that our business and our clients have in our overseas resorts. We feel that we should be leading the way and set down some goals that will help reduce the impact on the local environment. As we introduce more facilities into the holiday experience we are more and more aware of the additional burden these initiatives have on the local environment. We therefore state a few principles where we can, in partnership with our owners, reduce this impact to partially offset the effect of these new idea and equipments. These are only suggestions and we will never insist that our clients adhere to any initiative we are planning. If you are concerned and want to do a little more, then there are steps you can take. The following are real proposals that we will try and lead the way with our owners and customers.
