"After talking to your
representatives David and Jan at the Rutland Bird Fair last year, who recommended your campsite as an ideal situation from
which to visit the neighbouring reserve - Aiguamolls de l'Emporda.
We arrived on the day you opened this
year and stayed until April 11th. The campsite was excellent and cycling
in and around the site and into the reserve was safe, easy and very convenient.
The reserve was fantastic and in spite
of the fact that it was rather early in the migration season, we managed to see 95
different species in five days. We will certainly return."

We had a brilliant holiday. Our Muga Mobile home exceeded our expectations. It was very comfortable and well equipped. It was also good to be next door to our friends. We loved the view from the veranda and really enjoyed watching all the bird life in such a relaxed environment. Thank you very much for reserving that particular Mobile home so that we could make the most of the birding opportunities.
Many thanks also for organising the bike hire. It was a real bonus to be able to cycle over to the Aiguamollis de l'Emporda Natural Park with its mosaic of ecosystems and wonderful variety of birds. It was also very useful to be given on arrival a copy of your new booklet listing the birds seen in the area.
We appreciated the efficiency, friendliness and helpfulness of yourself, as well as other members of the staff team. This all contributed to our enjoyment of the holiday.
We definitely intend to return to Camping Laguna!
