    Garrotxa is a beautiful area that is not particularly well-known. There is an incredibly interesting history and culture. And the people are one of a kind! We have the volcanic natural park as well as the area of Alta Garrotxa. There are the historic towns of Santa Pau, Besalu and Castellfollit de la Roca.

    We are looking for volunteers to help us with a range of tasks around the house and farm. We always have tasks in our organic vegetable garden and clearing and bringing into use areas of woodland and fields that need attention. This year, we are also focusing on renovating an old outhouse into a bigger and safer henhouse. We would also like to freshen up and paint inside the house - some help to do if the weather isn't so good. We can offer accommodation and meals to a single person or a couple. We have a double bedroom, including wi-fi.

    We recommend that you have a car but if not we can pick you up from the bus station in Olot. The area has some well-marked hiking trails. There are routes that can take you to the volcanic area as well as Alta Garrotxa. It really is a beautiful area.
    We have had some volunteers staying with us before and they have really enjoyed their experience - in fact they have returned for a second stay. We ask that volunteers help us for maximum 5 hours per day, 5 days per week.
