    • Accommodation and Activities in the Picos de Europa
« on: August 19, 2007, 12:41 PM »
The project "Segontia Golf", an urbanisation in the Montecillo region of Sigüenza, Guadalajara, involving the construction of 1700 chalets, hotels and an 18-hole golf course caught my eye because Ecologistas en Accion have put forward a perfectly viable optional plan - Segontia Futuro.
As always the excuse reason for the project proposed (by the company Realitas) is the revitalisation of the area concerned. Also, as always, protection laws are being manipulated.
Here's an interesting extract;
"Según los expertos, tener un campo de golf asociado a una urbanización supone poder vender las viviendas un 30% más caras."
(According to experts, having a golf course associated with an urbanisation project can raise the price of the housing involved by 30%.)
