As summer rapidly becomes a distant memory, it's time to start planning a bit of winter sun or compiling your wishlist for next year's big vacation.

And as air travel becomes cheaper and accessible to all, it's easier to visit further flung parts of the world. But with travel, comes emissions.

According to the European Commission, just one return flight from London to New York, "generates roughly the same level of emissions as the average person in the EU does by heating their home for a whole year."

The Commission further states that by 2020 international aviation emissions will be roughly 70 percent higher than in 2005.

With that in mind, finding accommodation that's both beautiful and sustainable is important. Here, Sustainable Energy takes a look at some of the world's most stunning and sustainable holiday destinations.
