Alma_del_Monte_2_1.jpgEscape the city and head south with a gaggle of gals, to get hitched or for an overdue family reunion. In Taos, New Mexico, travelers will find the lovely Alma del Monte vacation rental home, a luxurious hacienda property that strives to combine green elements with total comfort.

In the five-room house (sleeps ten), green features include solar pre-heated water, radiant heat tiled floors, composting, recycling, energy-efficient laundry, bulk amenities, green household cleaners and rainwater harvesting.

Outside, the adventure of Taos (or a sleepily swinging hammock) awaits. Seize the day.
