This is a small holding with a large organic vegetable and fruit garden, landscaped ornamental grounds and lots of feathered and furry friends. The old farmhouse has been renovated with ecologically sound concepts such as solar panels, solar tubes, lots of insulation, shading and water collection. In Summer Can Torras is a busy Bed and Breakfast and rural retreat and I also look after 2 holiday apartments in Girona. I love food, both growing and cooking it, but time escapes me and I would like some help with some of the bigger projects such as a large reed bed, butterfly & bird garden and maintaining the large vegetable, fruit and herb terraces. I keep poultry and pets so help with them is also requested and you are welcome to join me for a morning walk with the dogs to start the day.
I offer great accommodation, some delicious food, and a warm welcome in beautiful surroundings.
Once or twice in the year I love to escape my little paradise in the hills to go exploring and would then love some house-sitters. We would arrange an initial hand over period to make sure my volunteers are familiar with the day to day care of Can Torras before I left.

Places for up to 3 volunteers except in the months of July & August when I am busy with holiday guests only.
