Sustainable Eco Glamping Spain
Outdoor Glamping Hotel Finca Les Coves is situated in a stunning, eco paradise. Every day we are grateful to Mother Nature for all the splendor she creates; colorful wildflowers, an assortment of cacti, fruit and almond trees, beautiful singing birds, wild boars and foxes; you never get bored here! If you look closely at nature, you can discover something new every day. We have to cherish that! A more sustainable earth starts with you and we don’t stay behind. This is how we create a sustainable holiday destination:
solar energy & solar boilers
Our energy comes from solar panels and is therefore completely green. We are 100% self-sufficient and not connected to the network. Fortunately we do have a backup generator. So if we have a few cloudy days we can switch it on and we still have power for everyone. Besides that our newest accommodations are equipped with solar boilers as well. Every year we are leveling up when it comes to sustainability!
The tap water in Spain contains a lot of lime. You don’t get sick immediately when you drink it, but we still prefer bottled water. In our own house we switched to water coolers quite quickly because the bottles that come with it are reusable. Just calculate how much plastic you save if you don’t have to throw out plastic water bottles anymore! That’s why we installed a water cooler in each accommodation, with glass bottles to fill. This way you always have nice cold water within reach and you don’t have to waste mountains of plastic during your holiday!
You can purchase a 19 liter bottle from us for 10 euros. We don’t earn anything from this, it is just a service. If you need a new one, just holla and we’ll bring it to your accommodation.
natural purified swimming pool
Our swimming pool is purified on a natural basis. We do not use chlorine, but salt. That is not just better for nature, but also for your skin!
waste separation & reduction
We separate our waste and motivate you to do the same by placing separate trash bins in the accommodations. In addition, we give our leftovers as much as possible to the pigs and the things they do not like we use for compost.
We have organic septic tanks. Therefore you may not flush anything down that doesn’t come out of your body, not even toilet paper. It takes some time getting used to, but the result is that, in the end, the water from the septic tank can go directly into nature. In a dry area like ours that a big pro!
The smoothies we make for our guests will soon be made with fruit from our own garden. The perfect way to provide you and your kiddos every day with the necessary vitamins. We have planted a variety of fruit trees, but we have to be patient. Moreover, we cook exclusively vegetarian and vegan meals using mostly veggies from our own garden. This has the aim of reducing our ecological foot print. If one person skips meat for a week, it already saves 130 liters of water. Image how much water we save cooking vegetarian dishes for all guests for an entire season? Don’t worry, we won’t let you nibble on a boring leaf of lettuce. It is our mission to satisfy even the greatest carnivores!
Chances are you have to adjust your mindset a little bit, because you may not be used to this way of living at home. There is no shame in that. We came from Rotterdam, so we had to do some adjusting ourselves! On the other hand, it also gives kind of a kick to contribute to a cleaner, sustainable world with a few simple adjustments. That way you can enjoy your holiday even more! And who knows, you might want to implement these new habits at home as well.
