The campsite Rubina Resort is, actually, the sum of three campsites and a building of apartments: the campsite Internacional Mas Chalet, the campsite Amberes, the campsite L'Estrella and the apartments Limar.
The campsite Internacional Mas Chalet was owned by a Dutch family, Landmann, that later went to Canada.
The campsite Amberes pertained to a family, Le Metayer, composed by a French (Guy) and a Belgian (Viviane), who left later to Alicante and created the campsite International la Marina.
The campsite L'Estrella was owned by a group of investors of Barcelona, which had bought it to the family Arnau of Castellò d' Empùries.
The apartments Limar, a property of a Belgian family, Poppe, were located between the campsite International Mas Chalet and the campsite Amberes. In fact, it appears that there was an agreement for their clients to pass through these two campsites.
In 1978, the Grau family buys the campsite International Mas Chalet with the aim to try the world of tourism. A few months later, both the campsite Amberes and the apartments Limar are also put at sale, therefore they were bought by the same family. The whole set was to function like only one establishment, which was called campsite International Amberes.
At the beginning of the 2001, the director of the campsite L'Estrella since 1993, Mario Sol, retires. The group of investors of Barcelona decides then to sell the campsite. After long negotiations, finally towards half of July of 2001 the campsite is bought and joins the campsite Internacional Amberes.
Initially, pitches in the campsites International Mas Chalet and Amberes were not clearly delimited, and the clients were installed according to the available space and their needs. Because new campsite legislation required delimited pitches, we eventually arranged all the terrain accordingly.
Also at the beginning, the terrain had only a few small trees, therefore one of the first tasks was to plant hundreds of new trees.
The terrain of the campsite, almost completely flat, and with water that could be found already at a few centimetres depth, these conditions turned strong rains into a very probable risk of flood. This problem was solved by adding much ground and installing a complex drainage system.
The reception of the camping International Mas Chalet was only a small caravan. At the same place we constructed the reception building, which grew larger throughout the years. The restaurant at the entrance also grew, with more space inside and outside.
The year following the joining of the campsites International Mas Chalet and Amberes, we built a swimming pool.
The period 2001-2010 was full of reforms: the supermarket, the new internet cafe, 64 new bungalows, bigger campingplots, and finally in the 2010 the new 1000 m2 swimming pool.
At the end of 2011, a small change but of great significance: the campsite name changes from 'International Amberes' to 'Rubina Resort', as the area is called 'The Rubina' and also the beach in front of us is called 'Rubina Beach'. Anyway, at this point, the camping bears little resemblance with the union of the two initial small campsites.
