Locanda della Valle Nuova, Italy
By Hollie Wicks

Locanda della Valle is a small country house lying in a 185 acre working organic farm just in sight of the town of Urbino. It is hidden in a beautiful landscape of gentle rolling hills, rich in wild flora and greenery.

The owners live by the philosophy that ‘one should tread lightly on the earth’ so they grow their own organic wheat, fruits and vegetables. They also keep their own cattle, pigs and poultry with a 100% natural feed diet. Guests are offered traditional home cooking and a whopping 70% of the food they serve is their own fresh organic produce.

Take a dip in the relaxing swimming pool or take a riding class from one of the on-site qualified riding instructors. You can even take a basket weaving course (more fun than it sounds) or improve your skills at a yummy cooking class. Or if none of that appeals why not just have a wander through the beautiful countryside and clear your head.

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) /
