Camping Village L’Esplanade, Olmeto-Plage

Rugged cliffs, secluded coves and long, sandy beaches – that’s Corsica. Viewing it as just a place for swimming and sunbathing is to underestimate the island, however. A dense network of trails leads through the mountainous terrain to where the island’s old ways are still practised – a paradise for active holidaymakers.

A great choice of campsites makes it easy for hikers and bikers to explore the island. If the location is nice, then you stay a while, before biking or hiking on down the trail. One of the smaller and more pristine campsites lies in the south-west – the Village L’Esplanade. Situated on terraced terrain deep in mixed woodlands perched on steep uplands, this campsite offers a panoramic view down to the bays of Valinco and Propriano.

When it comes to washrooms and WCs, most holidaymakers are looking for cleanliness and decent facilities. Since 2015, a new sanitary building has been serving visitors to the Village L’Esplanade campsite. The facilities are modern, and provide a generous number of individual shower cubicles and washrooms, with hot and cold water, WCs and showers. Outdoor washing facilities for crockery, etc. are also provided.

SCHELL provided all of the fittings for the sanitary building. Key arguments for choosing fittings from SCHELL were their robust, vandal-proof quality combined with their proven water-saving technologies.

In the shower cubicles, the DP-SC exposed shower panel with self-closing functionality was installed. The body of this fitting is made from a sturdy extruded aluminium section and water comes pre-mixed out of the shower head. After activation, each flow of water stops automatically after the configured time (5 to 30 seconds can be set). Maintenance-friendly: the front cover can simply be pivoted to the side.

The site owners selected the PURIS SC self-closing tap for all washrooms. The minimalist, clean visual language used here makes the fitting suitable for many applications – both in the washing cubicles and the dishwashing area. The cartridge design ensures the precise control of water through the tap and the temperature, which enables the economical use of water and energy.

Urinals are very important for campsites, for reasons of water conservation and hygiene. The compact and robust SCHELLOMAT BASIC flush valve fitting is made from high-quality solid brass with a chrome finish. The campsite owners were also impressed by its appealing SCHELL design. Above all, this exposed fitting is always ready to flush with a strong yet economical flow.

For the WC facilities, SCHELL supplied WC cistern modules, equipping these with SCHELL’s elegant LINEAR ECO operating panels in white. The campsite operators appreciated the timeless, unobtrusive design, combined with the easy cleaning offered by the flat operating panel with a water-saving dual flush. With a choice of a large or small flush button, the flush volume can always be matched to what is going down the pipe.
