New plants for the entrance

These last days the gardeners have changed the plants at the campsite's entrance, near the playground area. We have chosed rather autochthonous plants, and together with the low-consumption irrigation system, they should grow alright. Previous plants were more 'exotic'.

Preparing the swimming pool

In two days, friday 15 April, we will open the swimming pool. Until 15th June the opening times will be from 10:00 to 18:00, like last summer. Life guards Fede and Bernard are also coming back, so everything as usual.

These last weeks we have been busy cleaning the water deposits and, of course, also inside the pool. With so many trees around us, birds, dust... it has been a long task. Also one month ago we modified the overflowing channel, wood pieces covering it now have more space between them, thus more water falls inmediately inside the channel. We also added custom-made filters inside that overflowing channel, in order to catch as many dust and leaves as possible before the water enters the water deposits and then later the machine room. This should help also to keep pre-filters less dirty in the machine room. So... it seems we are ready for this new season.

Unpacking trees

The swimming pool is almost ready to be opened again on 15 April. Meanwhile, the gardeners are unpacking the new trees that have been planted this winter. This summer the grass will be denser and the whole pool area should look nicer. More about that in the next days.
