Starting this season, our Swift Restaurant Take Away will offer drinking water which has been purified using membrane technology in glass containers. Beyond the obvious benefits for our health, we will be helping to reduce the environmental impact of transporting empty containers thanks to its infinitely reusable glass packaging. Each container also contributes to creating and improving infrastructures for hydraulic drinking water and sanitation in developing countries. All in collaboration with Ingénierie Sans Frontières.

Current indications regarding the Covid-19 situation suggest that it will be a very similar season to 2019. Most restrictions on travel to Europe have been lifted and high vaccination rates have contributed to the positive situation. Our two campsites will continue to follow the sanitary rules in force and will, as always, reinforce the levels of cleanliness and safety in all the facilities.
Our campsites are a safe tourist destination as they are very spacious and allow direct access natural parks: Castell Mar is located in the Aiguamolls del Empordà Natural Park and Castell Montgrí is located on the edge of the Montgrí Natural Park, Medes Islands and Baix Ter.
