"Slow Escapes" Rural Retreats for Conscious Travellers
"Travel ennobles the spirit " - Oscar Wilde
Travel is evolving, ever more aware of reducing its environmental impact, embracing the kind of experience that revives rural areas in a sustainable way. A growing number of hospitality venues use only local craftspeople, celebrate local skills and produce, and reinvigorate the land around them. Visitors here are more than guests, they are in contact with a whole culture and help strengthen the bonds within the community.
In "Slow Escapes," sustainable tourism expert Clara le Fort introduces converted monasteries, transformed windmills, and many other enchanting places around the world, that embrace slow living and breathe new life into a region. This book shows us how travel can be a saving grace for the long term; a volume for everybody who wishes to be more than a mere consumer of place.
