The hot summer days are no longer ahead – they’re already here. You’re annoyed that you didn’t book a vacation in time? Say goodbye to your bad mood and check out our ideas for your last minute vacation. We’ve picked out three budget accommodations in Europe for you. So pack your bag and let the adventure begin!
Social travel in Europe
Through our socialbnb platform you can find your next accommodation and book it easily. Whether alone, with your family or with friends. The coolest thing about it: with your accommodation price you finance the ecological or social project you are traveling to. At the same time, you book an authentic travel experience through us. So if you are looking for big hotel complexes, lavish buffets or overcrowded beaches on vacation, you are wrong with us.
Learn more about our vision, the great people behind the projects or win an overnight stay at the socialbnb of your choice. Every month we give away an overnight stay among the subscribers of our newsletter. Good luck!
Last minute vacation can also be sustainable
In this post, we don’t want to encourage you to jump on the next last minute plane and ignore your carbon footprint. No, we rather mean that you can travel in the near surroundings, take a train trip if you have longer time, or similar. Today we give you three cheap accommodation examples in Europe. If you’re interested in more of our European or even all the other socialbnbs, feel free to check out our Instagram channel. There we are currently playing out some Europe travel inspiration for travelers.
Glamping close to nature in Italy
At the unique socialbnb Orto Dell’Idro, a camping night costs $25. It is 5 minutes walk from the beach and the city center. So you can explore the city center, or spend a relaxing day at the beach. Because of the location in a valley, you have great routes for hiking, horseback riding or biking. A kayak rental or other boats for tours can also be reached within a few minutes. In addition, you can join yoga and permaculture workshops on site – what a choice of activities, right?
Orto Dell’Idro is a non-profit association in Otranto that provides inspiration for a more sustainable and harmonious lifestyle. We provide a platform for like-minded people to share their knowledge about practices that can improve our quality of life. We organize social and cultural events to enjoy community life and a conscious lifestyle in harmony with nature.
There is a glamping tent for two people with two single beds on the farm premises. The communal kitchen, dining area and lounge are located outside under an open pergola. You share it with the hosts, Silvia and Robbert, and the participants of the workshops.
A little time out in Portugal
Since 2006, we have welcomed people from all over the world, of all ages, genders, cultures, languages and beliefs, promoting respect for our diversity.
Considered the land of “sailors and explorers,” Portugal offers travelers miles of coastline, idyllic beaches, secluded cliffs, and historic sites. For $18 per night, you can camp at socialbnb Mount of Oaks.
Project tours, fermentation classes, traditional sweat lodge, various types of massages by local practitioners, hiking, swimming, biking, and rock climbing are just a few of the many activities available for you on site. What you’re supporting with your overnight stay here? The educational permaculture farm and its increasing biodiversity.
The goal of this beautiful socialbnb is to care for degraded nature and provide for diverse wildlife, food forests, native forests and balanced, sustainable ecosystems. The land is to be treasured and create a place of hospitality, sanctuary, tranquility, peace and hope for those who visit for long or short periods of time.
The land is owned by a non-profit association that offers courses and events related to permaculture. These courses and events, as well as the accommodation, are intended to provide the financial support needed to maintain the five hectares of land and develop it into a “paradise” for all – people, trees, animals, plants and minerals.
Sports activities in Slovenia
Hostel Idrija is located only 5 minutes walk from the historical center of UNESCO Idrija, where there are many sights to discover. Idrija offers you a complete package: culture, traditions, gastronomy and green nature. In a shared room the price is only 20$, in a double room 24$.
Our sustainable socialbnb is located in an old boarding school that glows with the influence and energy of young people. For example, they’ve done DIY renovations, regularly host cultural events on the terrace, and offer workshops for travelers.
We create a social hub for young people, which includes established programs, a youth hostel and an information point for young people. We encourage young people to acquire skills, get involved in decision-making processes and co-create events through which we enrich life in the city. By participating in international youth projects, we further contribute to the development of independent individuals with acceptance towards others.
We hope we could inspire you with our three socialbnbs for your last minute vacation. So that you are now well prepared for your trip, we have here a packing list for you, which our dear friends from Backpacker Trail have prepared. We wish you a great summer vacation!
