Chez Sven Bed and Breakfast, USA
By Hollie Wicks

We know we always harp on at you about not getting on planes but we know sometimes you just need to get as far away from home as possible. If you are heading further afield and can’t turn the trip into a cool Traincation, just make sure you stay somewhere as awesome (and green) as this place…

This week we’re heading across the pond to Chez Sven Bed and Breakfast in the U-S-of-A. It’s a beautiful eco-friendly haven in a traditional setting. The BnB lies half a mile from the pretty village of Wellfleet, on Old King’s Highway, a scenic road that remains unpaved just like in colonial times.

The rooms have been renovated and filled with local art, and the cosmopolitan hosts offer organic sheets and a gorgeous wholesome breakfast for home to home comfort.

Wellfleet is famous for its pristine kettle ponds, wide expanses of deserted ocean beach, oysters, and theatre and art galleries. A whopping 61% of the town is within the Cape Cod National Seashore, which means there are fewer houses and much more natural trails. So pack your walking shoes as there are many hiking and biking trails to discover. And make sure you refuel after all that exercise at one of the many gourmet restaurants. Yum!

Take a look at the photos for more of an idea of just how lovely this holiday is…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
