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.

My stay in the Center was a unique experience. The place is situated in a very calm area no distractions around. For me it was a great place to get in contac with animals such as dogs, horses, cats, pig...The whole ambiance is very calm however there can be times when a lot of guests arrive so a will to work should be existing if you chose it :) I could benefit from the different activities (yoga,meditations,reiki...) which i absolutely enjoyed! My experience was great met lovely volunteers, guests, enjoyed the beautiful surrounding and learned a lot aboug myself :)

Great place to be around with nature. I could learn how to do multiple tasks such as cleaning and animal care. The bed was comfortable as well :) I met great people and I'm very grateful I had unique experiences like ice meditation and reiki. Super cool It's not close to central barcelona so I would recommend to someone who want some break from hustle and city life I could use pool whenever I wanted to and the view is incredible with the sunshine.
