Outstanding contributions

The Torre del Codina is an individual rural property with accommodation for fifteen people in six bedrooms.  It is in a restored and converted seventeenth century building. Ninety percent of the energy used is clean and renewable, provided from a combination of wind, thermal, photovoltaic and biomass sources. Rainwater is collected and used for irrigation and in a pond for fauna. It is also filtered for use as drinking water.

Guests are encouraged to explore the surrounding areas of natural and historic interest. The accommodation is located on an ecological farm. Wine tastings are held and the production process is explained.  The farm is involved in the reforestation of a 12.5 hectare site. During the summer owls and kestrels are reintroduced into the natural environment. The accommodation business is an active partner in a local Leader Programme and is involved in a working group promoting ecotourism in the region.
