Jaume Torres, the founder of Creative Rural.
Graduate in Economic and Business Sciences at the University of Barcelona. He grew up closely linked to nature and the rural world. Despite being born in Barcelona, his family had a house in a small town of 400 inhabitants in the Catalan region of Moianès, where he grew up as a child and his love for nature. For 30 years, he lived there practically every weekend and vacation.
Those were days when there were no mobile phones or computers, days when we played freely, the houses always had their doors open, and the field, the forest or the garden were more than extensions of our room. Days when fun meant getting dirty with sand or mud, losing track of time, telling legends or making up stories.
After several years in the world of information and communication, he won the competition to manage a mountain refuge (Cap de Rec Refuge) in Lles de Cerdanya, a town in the Pyrenees with 250 inhabitants. It was an idyllic setting away from the big cities where we gave accommodation and food to hikers. A short time ago, the same shelter was the home of the famous world champion in ski mountaineering and mountain running, Kylian Jornet.
“It was a very revealing experience because I discovered how difficult it can be for most people to spend time planning their weekend outings or vacations on their own.”
Later, he had the opportunity to actively collaborate for years with a travel agency, discovering for himself the fascinating complexity of the sector and the best ways to meet the needs of travellers.
In addition, due to my origins and work experience, I have almost always surrounded myself with healthy people with a high degree of ecological awareness and values such as sustainability and respect for the locals, animals, the environment and traditions… this is how Creative Rural was forged today.
One of our objectives is that your visit has a positive and lasting social impact wherever you go. To do this, we establish collaborations with local or regional entities that we support with part of our income and help to give visibility on our social networks, newsletter and blog.
We are consistent. We do not conceive sustainability and respect for the environment with proposals that involve long journeys due to the impact on the CO2 footprint that they entail.
