The accommodation is located next to the Gallocanta Lagoon, on the outskirts of town. The lagoon hosts the largest concentration of migrating cranes on their flight over the Iberian Peninsula as well as waders and other long-legged birds. In the surrounding areas, you can see steppe birds such as great bustards, black-bellied sangrouse and Dupont’s lark.

With 20 years of experience, this accommodation started out as a simple lodge for crane birdwatchers. A few years later they added on to the existing structure to accommodate more than 50 people in double rooms. The owners’ dedication and commitment has converted this place into something more than just a rural inn.

With 113 points and 5 feathers it’s almost impossible to find criteria that the Allucant doesn’t meet. The library is very extensive, the walls are filled with bird paintings and photographs, they sell souvenirs, the views of the lagoon from the accommodation are spectacular, the environment is excellent and Javi, the owner, is a pro birder. In addition, the Allucant sets the stage for many diverse workshops ranging from solar cooking to celebrations of sexual and gender diversity to painting and sculpture lessons, scientific bird ringing, etc. Their role in the environment and commitment to society is a great example to follow.
