New sport event : Hunting Dogs

nuevo evento deportivo

Hello everyone !!

We hope all of you are in good health and looking forward to the summer season.

We really want to open our doors and see the well-known faces of our customers and welcome the new ones to visit us.

This year we will continue with all the cleaning protocols, distances and mask as in the previous summer but now with more knowledge of the facts and knowing that we are all going to respect the rules and capacity as much as possible.

We are working hard to  E N J O Y this summer with family,  friends and doing what makes us happy.

For this reason, for bicycle lovers, we have created the Hunting Dogs – Gravel Costa Brava event. A new sport event in Camping Bungalow Resort & Spa La Ballena Alegre.

Gravel is a type of cycling that is practiced starting from the base of a road bike but with some modifications in the geometry of the frame and a larger size of its tires.

Our intention is to share the essence of how we understand this type of cycling (GRAVEL), which is not only sport but also companionship, adventure, freedom and good vibes.

The natural habitat of gravel bikes are tracks, forest roads and highways away from traffic. It is also characterized by its agile pace on low-technical trails and roads.

In this way, we have created an event where you will enjoy with your friends a series of wonderful tours and spectacular landscapes, all combining refreshment stops and culinary tastings.

You can not lose this!

Responsible Holidays

RESPONSIBLE HOLIDAYS AT LA BALLENA ALEGRE CAMPSITE

The report on Responsible Holidays shows the commitment our campsite has made in becoming a benchmark for sustainability and for the energy self-sufficiency of our facilities, achieved with the support and awareness of all customers and visitors.

It’s an effort that has been rewarded with the prestigious European Solar Prize 2020, nominating us “the Champions of Renewable Energy”, thanks to the eDevesa eco-friendly bungalows project which uses solar energy.

At La Ballena Alegre campsite, we are confronting the future by taking care of the global environment and we have set ourselves the objective of continuing to find sustainable solutions to help reduce CO2 emissions.

In the Vacaciones Responsables report, we are taken on a tour of the campsite by Franc Comino, founding partner of Wattia y Webatt Energía, interviewed by Francesc Buxeda i Aliu, head of communication at the campsite, in which it is explained, for example, that the emission of 100 tons of CO2 per year has been reduced by supplying some 1,000m2 of multipurpose spaces with renewable energies.

Geothermal Energy

In addition, we have 14 geothermal wells that allow water to be heated and cooled, as well as providing air-conditioning in various areas around the campsite for both customers and operatives, such as in the restaurants. Its profitability is four times that of gas boilers and twice that of air conditioners.

Solar Energy 

We also have bungalows and bathrooms – hot water – that run on photovoltaic energy, several free fast-charging points and it is planned to install 250 solar panels on the roof of the central area.

The eDevesa and Tamariu Bungalows

The eDevesa bungalows have been created specifically to operate with renewable energies, reaching 85% of self-sustainability by combining a hybrid of photovoltaic energy with a battery and a heat pump system in which all the needs of customers are taken into account. Each bungalow has its own battery that stores the energy collected during the day.

The Tamariu bungalows, on the other hand, have been adapted to take advantage of the experience of the eDevesa bungalows in reducing energy expenditure and making them sustainable.

Wind and Water

One of the objectives we have set ourselves is to take advantage of the natural resources provided by the geographical area in which we are located. We are looking at various systems, such as high performance and efficiency reverse osmosis water purifiers, twenty times more efficient than desalinators.

Inside Model

This is our European model of reference, which promotes the energy, environmental, economic and social benefits of locality. And, in this regard, we prioritize Zero km products to promote local trade and the circular economy.

One interesting fact is that even the bathroom sinks and toilet paper are manufactured by certified local companies with a zero carbon footprint, which is why they offer us high quality products.

Help us to make it possible!

This is a just a sample of the efforts we make at the campsite to respect the planet and, in this regard, we need the maximum support from our customers and visitors in order to raise awareness of the fact that this is a task that belongs to everyone. Because it is only by working together that we can really enjoy a Responsible Holiday.
