#YourCampingStory - Camping Son Bou, Eva Fornols
Camping managers and professionals in the sector open their doors to us and take the floor on the Harmony Heart Camp blog, to share with us their day-to-day life and their knowledge of the territory.
Today Eva Fornols takes the floor from Camping Son Bou, in Menorca (Balearic Islands).
Harmony Heart Camp : When your clients come on vacation for the first time, what advice do you give them? What is the most important thing to do?
Eva Fornols: Menorca is Menorca, an island of hidden coves, calm and transparent waters, forests, ravines and trails in its interior ... Camping Son Bou has the charm of being an oasis in the center of the island where to live, savor and enjoy Nature by itself. To feel again with the 5 senses.
The most recommended things to do in Menorca are routes through the Camí de Cavalls, visit beaches with turquoise waters in the south or volcanic beaches in the north, take gastronomic routes through white villages. Menorca is also ideal for practicing sports and taking walks in the middle of nature.
You know that you will soon receive clients who have been confined to your home for several weeks ... What is the best advice you could offer them to take advantage of these moments at your Son Bou campsite?
Enjoy nature to feel free again.
It delayed its opening dates due to the coronavirus and it has time. Have you thought about services directly linked to clients who will seek coexistence, but also security?
Yes, we have delayed the opening date. We are adapting the establishment according to the safety and hygiene measures established by the WHO, as well as training the staff and improving processes that allow greater security for the client and the team.
You who grew up in Menorca, know your region or the people who live there well. Could you give us your definition?
The Menorcan is a person linked to his island, Menorca. It is traditional and has a respect for exemplary nature. It has a reputation for being closed but it is very hospitable.
You have many loyal customers at the Son Bou campsite, why do you think people come and come back to your campsite?
We have a loyalty rate of 40% thanks to the power of the destination and the location of the campsite, as well as the guarantees of tranquility and rest that we offer. Camping Son Bou is located in a typical Menorcan forest in the center of the island and close to everything. It is located 3 kilometers from the Son Bou beach, one of the most beautiful places on the island and the ideal starting point to discover Menorca. The campsite has large pitches and a wide variety of bungalows and glamping tents. It has additional services, such as an outdoor swimming pool, restaurant, supermarket, miniclub, toy library, sports areas, Wi-Fi, etc.
Camping is primarily human contact and exchanges. Give us the 3 words or expressions that best define your reception team, the values and the spirit of your establishment:
Do you establish special cancellation conditions, lighter general conditions of sale, to facilitate the purchase act of your future clients? If so, which ones?
We are preparing the Flexy rate, which allows you to book and wait to make the payment of the reservation up to 7 days before arrival at the campsite.
Could you share a secret with us? For example, what do you like to do when the campsite closes at the end of the season?
Enjoy the island gastronomically speaking, as well as the calm that you breathe when you have nature in all its splendor.
