I loved my time at the Center, the place is beautiful surrounded by nature and with lovely animals. I was a volunteer yoga teacher but also had to do other tasks to complete my agreed working hours. I helped in the kitchen, with cleaning and preparing the rooms for the guest and greeting them. The work was not too hard and we always had time to take small breaks between tasks and to socialise with the other people living and working at the Center, and that was the most special thing about this place for me, the amazing people I met and became friends with. Im so grateful for everything I learned thanks

My experience in Cal Pau Cruset was amazing! Ellen is an open and understanding person always willing to help, I want to thank her for listening and accepting the ideas of the Social Media Team. I really liked the passion the people here share for animal care and protection, I fell in love with all the furry family. All the staff is very nice and easy to work with. Excellent place to volunteer and be part of the Penedes experience.

This was an incredible experience, Ellen is a host who makes you feel welcome, the tasks are simple, the contact with nature and the tranquility of the place makes you feel at peace. You can coordinate your days off and visit nearby towns such as Sitges and Vilafranca. It's about an hour from Barcelona, you can take a train and arrive in Vilafranca and from there it's easy to get to the Masia. Thank you Ellen for everything, I will miss every member of the Masia.

I feel grateful for this experience in which I met very nice friends. I respect and appreciate the intention and effort that this place represents for the owner and the few people working there. But I perceived that is not a project that considers the human value of people as a priority, indeed a bussiness place, where the volunteers play the role of workers without payment and are in a kind of inferiority. I noticed very significant organizational challenges, like the lack of communication and lack of activities that support a team spirit and that cares of learning and growing of individuals

I spent an amazing month in Call Pau Cruset. I've been welcomed so well and meeting the team was so easy, that's a real pleasure when you've been travelling around :) If you love nature, food, animals, to swim, to hike, to laugh, you'll find all that. Here, I've developped some awesome tactical skills in cleanint the poe of the horses, I've been through the all life process of almonds and I tried to move my body in the yoga hall ! I would like to thanks with all my heart Fav, PLulu and Ellen. I'm so gratefull for the times we spent together.
