I had a wonderful time in Oteruelos helping Santiago out. It was great to be so immersed in nature and Ali and Sushi were amazing companions too. Santiago and Tadeo were really welcoming and Santiago cooked up some wonderful meals.

Santiago is a good and honest man. Moving with him is really a very good experience. If you want to rest your head and enjoy nature, I highly recommend a visit.

Santiago es una persona muy amable y atenta que siempre se preocupó por mi comodidad, hubo buena comunicación y respeto. El pueblo es bonito y pequeño, perfecto si quieres desconectarte de la ciudad. La habitación designada es agradable y limpia. Las comidas que prepara Santiago son deliciosas y nutritivas, además de que te da la libertad de tomar lo que necesites. Oteruelos está cerca de Soria, por lo que pude moverme y visitar otras ciudades, siempre se me llevó de ida y de vuelta, así que no tuve que preocuparme por el traslado. Es un voluntariado que recomiendo al 100%

Esta fue una experiencia sin igual, una oportunidad perfecta para conectar con la naturaleza y disfrutar de mucha paz y tranquilidad. Santiago es un excelente anfitrión, te hace sentir como en casa con su gran corazón y generosidad, siempre está pendiente de lo que puedas necesitar. Te muestra varios sitios de interés y te cuenta mucho de la historia y costumbres, además de que cocina delicioso! Las tareas son sencillas y gratificantes. Ali y Sushi son unos animalitos muy cariñosos que se roban tu corazón! Recomiendo esta experiencia 100%, espero volver pronto.
