Lebensraum Röblingen in Germany

Attention small and large families! The sun-drenched guest apartment of the habitat Röblingen offers space for up to nine people. Freshly renovated, with kitchen including dishwasher, a bathroom with rain shower and access to the organic garden, the accommodation scores very well for us. But the coolest thing about the accommodation is its location: you’ll be staying in a train station – so the transport links couldn’t be better. And you still can’t hear the trains. But what could be more exciting for the kids, watching trains from the dining table?

At the Röblingen am See train station, living space for communal living, working and living is being created. With a healthy living climate, ecological building materials, community rooms, organic garden, and diverse commercial and office units for living & working under one roof, the historic Röblingen am See train station will become a center for quality of life.

Don Bosco Foundation in Cambodia

White beaches, light blue water and palm trees – Southeast Asia. An absolute dream. And that’s exactly where your next trip with your family can take you, to Sihanoukville in Cambodia. Your sustainable accommodation there not only has a pool and fitness area; you can even take cooking classes to learn traditional Cambodian cuisine. Cambodia’s largest national park, with countless animals and breathtaking nature, is also nearby.

The Don Bosco Foundation is a training center for young people from poor backgrounds. Here they learn about the hotel business and are prepared for a better future with job prospects and a good life. All this is definitely worth at least one night in paradise, isn’t it?

Rewild Collaborative in Brazil

This accommodation offers different types of rooms, for example, a room with a single and a double bed. Couples with a child would be well taken care of here. Your accommodation is only half an hour away from the Curitiba airport – and you can even be picked up by the staff of the Rewild Collaborative.

The accommodation is located directly in a biosphere reserve. The houses are specially built so that you can easily observe the wildlife from your terrace. If you like climbing, hiking or horseback riding, this is also the right place for you!

With your overnight stay at the Rewild Collaborative you sustainably finance the protection of endangered wildlife in the reserve; especially jaguars.

Penduka Trust in Namibia

Not far from Namibia’s capital Windhoek is your next potential accommodation – whether you are four or alone. You have your own bathroom and can cook for yourself. You can also participate in the workshops and sports program in the morning with your family if you feel like it. There is also a tour program available for you! But beyond that, there is so much more you can discover in Namibia. Not only the great nature offers super much potential, also in Windhoek there is a lot to see.

The organization has been working with economically weak women and other disadvantaged groups since 1992. With health programs, workshops, skills and potential development and crafting, the aim is to support precisely these people.

Fundacion Montecito in Columbia

In the middle of the Xieti Nature Reserve, a wonderful guesthouse with two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room with dining area and fireplace awaits you and your family. Surrounded by mountains, you will have a fabulous view of Lake Tota; the largest lake in Colombia in the middle of the Andes. There is also no lack of possible activities: there are many bike and hiking routes, bird watching is great and you can have a very typical dinner with the locals in their country houses.

With your overnight stay in this socialbnb you support an organization that cares for the ecological sustainability of the highand lake and the private nature reserves created by the founders. For more information, click here.
