Chez Sven Becomes a Sawday's Special Place to Stay

Chez Sven is proud to be the first “Special Place” in the United States featured on Britain’s popular travel Web site Sawday’s Special Places To Stay. It is a great site for anyone looking for green accommodation. Our listing, a Web site exclusive, can be found here. Alastair Sawday has awarded us two ethical stamps, one for Environment, and one for Fine Food. Chez Sven offers natural amenities and uses only green cleaning products. We serve as much organic food as possible, including homemade granola, and provide water that has passed through 3-stage PUR filters. No plastic bottles here, although we recycle any that turn up in the trash. Sawday started his famous travel guidebook series a dozen years ago and has sold over one million books worldwide. Each “special place” – 5000 in all – receives a full write-up after a visit from a Sawday’s representative. Chez Sven was fortunate to have Em Sawday as one of our guests last year. We are very pleased to be featured as a Sawday's Special Place. Our former guests already know how special Chez Sven is. We are lucky to live in a fantastically beautiful town, with the Atlantic Ocean, above, two miles away, and Dyer Pond, below, a quick walk through the woods.
