Cal Guerxo

We are Emmanuel and Juliana and together with Kauê, our 10 year old child, we live in a (very) small village in the Spanish Pyrenees. Juliana (Brazilian) is a teacher, singer and dancer while Emmanuel (Belgian) works as a regenerative consultant in the built environment. Our home is a pleasant place to live with a strong connection to nature, a small garden based on permaculture principles and an interior biophilic design that makes you feel at home.
We are looking for volunteers who are comfortable in a remote area like the one we live in. We are looking for volunteers that can be part of our family for 4 to 6 weeks and support us in our daily lifes. This involves helping with the raising of Kauê and help us out with cooking and cleaning as well as the garden. Ideally, you have a specific interest in the field of childcare and you enjoy creating little projects together with Kauê, sourced from your own interests and aimed at developing Kauê´s curiosity and skills. We also value good cooking skills and ideally you are comfortable driving a car.
What offer you lodging and food and if you are interested we can share some of our practices such as Hand in hand parenting, Zen Practice , Singing classes or Chi Kung.
We also have a dog called Maya who loves to go on hikes so we are looking for someone who likes dogs as well.
So if the above resonates with you we would love to connect.
Emmanuel and Juliana.

We are located in a small village and we tend to host 1 volunteer. So you should be comfortable being by yourself. We also accept couples. Most of your time will be spent in and around the house with our small family. If you are looking for larger communities this may not be the right volunteering opportunity for you. But if you like to hang out with our family and enjoy nature, then let us know. To get to our place, you can take a train or a bus from Barcelona which is 3 hours away. We will pick you up at the bus or train station. During your time off, you can enjoy walks in nature and explore the surroundings. This is a place for people that enjoy the quietness and beauty of nature. A drivers licence and feeling comfortable driving is a big plus. We prefer stays of 4 weeks minimum up to 8 weeks.

Me sentí en un hogar.Fui buscando nada y me encontré con oro. Una familia increíble, me sentí en un hogar, cálido. Juli hermosa con su energía positiva, kauê el niño más inteligente que conocí en mi vida. Y Manu un gran maestro, con lo poco compartido me enseñó muchísimo, me hubiera encantado compartir aún más con él porque es realmente sorprendente su inteligencia. Me voy llena de cosas hermosas, los extrañaré y siempre estaré con ansias de volver. Hogar cálido e inigualable, una experiencia realmente única para aprender a vivir en familia y conectar con la naturaleza/ con uno mismo. Gracias!

The Cal Guerxo family is fantastic, the house is a special and comfortable place in the middle of the mountains, Kaue is a sweet and incredibly smart child with whom we played, learned and had fun. Manu has great knowledge from which we learned a lot. Juliana is very talented with a very generous warm spirit and Maya is a beautiful dog who was wonderful company the entire time. We always feel part of the family, a recommended place for any volunteer.

After spending five weeks in Bresca I can say that I couldn’t have wished for a better first time volunteering experience. I felt welcomed and comfortable from the moment I arrived. The house is so cozy and the nature surrounding it is just beautiful. I rlly enjoyed going on walks with Maya. She is a wonderful dog. It was quite easy for me to connect with Kauê because he’s an open person with a great sense of humour. I miss our talks and dancing sessions already. A big thank you to Ju and Manu for making this incredible time possible. They’re wonderful people. I’ll always keep u in my heart!
