This self-sufficient way of lodging means living without direct connection to mains electricity or water. So not only are you going back to basics in comfort, you will also gain more respect for the natural world around you. On your arrival, you’ll receive everything you need for your stay and as your cabin’s battery discharges, yours will recharge. Another bonus of Slow Cabins is that with every booking they plant a tree and annually invest in local nature regeneration projects through their Impact Investment Fund.
