Who's already tried this?
Ouishare Connector Germany (Berlin)
I spontaneously I joined a group to spend few days in a Spanish village. Interesting people, makers, change makers, entrepreneurs, multilinguals for various backgrounds came together in a comfortable rebuilt house in a pastoral village in a corageous landscape. What a peaceful and quiet and at the same time inspiring and relaxing environment. The village has also an interesting history to it and ambitious and highly motivated coop that are transforming the once abandoned village into a cool place to be. The perfect setting to have long walks, calm down, have fascinating conversations and inspiring thoughts and just relaxe. I will repeat the experience for sure. It was special.
Mobile Marketing Social Point (Barcelona)
When I found out about Pandorahub rural programs, something deep down resonated and awoke my curiosity to experience it. I couldn't resist the idea of spending some days in a very special village in Solanell enjoying the beauty of the nature and the company of whole hearted people with inspiring conversations, stimulating meals and walks in the forest, under the stars... A great combination of wild nature shared with a bunch of open minded people eager to explore ways to spark their personal paths and projects. That was what first brought me to Solanell when I first joined the Cathar program for start-ups. It was a unique out of the box experience with empowering workshops, an international community of really interesting people of different backgrounds and a lot of fun. If this alo resonates you, don't hesitate

I needed to combine work and rest and this weekend in Solanell fulfilled all expectations. The town of Solanell transmits an unexplainable tranquility, surrounded by nature and stories of Cathars is the perfect place to unwind. In addition I was accompanied by makers, foreign and domestic entrepreneurs, and the members of the cooperative whose mission is to revive the village Solanell, sharing stories, walks in the middle of the mountain, games, and discussing ways to improve and impact positively the society. And if that was not enough, we stayed at an amazing house made by the owner, excellent to relax after a day's work and hiking in the mountains, two bedrooms and two bathrooms were we got comfortable accommodation for 6 people
