My name is Emma and my partner is Agustín, we live in a little village in North Spain near Burgos called Hornillos del Camino. Its on the Camino de Santiago. We met in 2014 when I was walking the camino and we have a beautiful baby Boy -Eli, who is 3 years old. We have a house attached to a restaurant and a garden.
Our restaurant is situated 20 km from Burgos on the Camino de Santiago. The Camino de Santiago is a pilgrim route through Spain, we have pilgrims from all over the world visit everyday. Pilgrims are often in a place of healing and transformation and we love to create a space where we can meet their needs and offer friendliness and nourishment. We are a small family run business with a team of 3 - 4 people. We have a modest meditation space and offer yoga, guided meditations and reflections for pilgrims. We have two pieces of land which we cultivate so that we use our own organic vegetables for the restaurant. We have responsibly sourced our produce so they are in line with our values of compassion and kindness, therefore we use locally sourced produce, use only free range meat and eggs and follow environmentally conscious guidelines when possible. We also have live acoustic music most evenings from a mixture of local musicians and passing pilgrims. We also offer music residences to International artists.
Our vision is to create a place where we can nurture and be nurtured. Therefore we would like you to help co-create an environment that is based on values of kindness. We will ask you to help develop these within yourself, within our team, with our visitors and globally. We are not aligned with any religion or denomination.
We have a number of positions so please have a look and see if any interest you, ranging from Jobs as a Cook and Restaurant Waiter/waitresses to volunteering as a Yoga and Meditation Teacher, Child minder with Eli, Musicians to offer nightly concerts and help in the garden and art projects.
The village is very quiet and relaxing with only 1 shop and 3 other bars. It is on the meseta, so we have pilgrims from all over the world drop by every day. The people who walk the camino are particularly open and it is honestly a joy to see who comes through the door. A very unique and interesting experience. We are creating a place where we and the pilgrims can be nourished both physically and spiritually.
