We are always proud to add another establishment onto our Lonely Birder Approved list. This time it’s the turn of Allucant, a veteran establishment that remains a model for ornithological tourism. The names Gallocanta- Allucant have been inseperable for years, and this is by far the best place to eat and sleep and enjoy the wonders of the Gallocanta Lagoon, without leaving the building.
It’s impossible to find a criterion that Allucant doesn’t comply with generously. The library is full, the walls replete with photos and paintings of birds, souvenirs are on sale and the visits to the lagoon are spectacular. The owner Javi is an ace birdwatcher and the atmosphere is excellent.
On top of all of this, Allucant hosts many varied events, from solar cuisine to festivals of sexual diversity, painting courses, sculpture and scientific ringing programmes- a very fine example of mixing the environment with the social.
We wish Allucant a long and happy life along with all its enriching initiatives!
