6 Eco-Chic Spring Break Destinations
Spring break is here and you know what that means: time for a vacation! Instead of opting to stay at a huge (and environmentally unfriendly) chain resort, why not choose an eco-chic destination for spring break? If you think going green means forsaking luxury or convenience, think again. Here are 6 amazing vacation rentals from our collection that are stylish, affordable, and totally eco-friendly.
Boutique-Homes.com has partnered with DestinationBCN to present a series of 13 stylish and affordable apartments in the heart of Barcelona, definitely one of the coolest cities in Europe and a must-go for anyone traveling to Spain in the near future.
DestinationBCN started as a side project 12 years ago by Anne Nijstad and Miklos Beyer, a designer and art curator respectively. After being hired to redecorate a friend's apartment for short-term rental, the pair realized that there was a market for travelers who were actively seeking stylish properties in Barcelona. Thus, DestinationBCN was formed. They are now the proprietors of 13 apartment rentals that have won acclaim from Mocoloco, Design Milk, LA Times and The New York Times, among others, for their sophistication and attention to detail.
