OUR ALBERGUE

Welcome to Oasis Trails which is run by an international community of Volunteers!
Our desire is to offer pilgrims a place of peace and rest on their journey.

Our refuge is a rustic old Spanish house in the center of Villamayor de Monjardín overlooking the valley. It was started in 1997 by two Dutch guys with a dream to create an oasis for people on the journey of life. One of them had previously been on such a pilgrimage himself, the hippie trail to India. In search of answers he met Jesus, and since then his life has been changed.

Where to find us:
When pilgrims leave Estella they will pass the wine fountain and there is the option to go right or left.  The path to the right leads to Villamayor de Monjardín. Going left leads to Luquin, and will add another 3km to the journey.

Reserving a bed

We reserve a limited number of beds. We do this to honour the pilgrims that do not make reservations. We keep the reservations and guarantee these beds until 3 pm. After 3 pm we cannot guarantee the bed for you.
Sending your backpack to our albergue is not a reservation and does not guarantee a bed.
A reservation is only valid once received and confirmed by us.

You can call us, email us, or message us on FB.

If you have arrived at our albergue before we open, you are encouraged to put your pack, or shoes, or yourself in line with those others that are waiting. When there are no more beds available we will always try to do our best to find you a bed somewhere else. We can help with transport sometimes as well. We will look after you!

Children

Families with small children are welcome.  We prefer that they stay in the private room. If this is not possible: Children 0, 1 or 2 years old can stay in parents bed. Older kids pay the normal price.
Children 3 to 10 years pay for dinner €1,00 per year of age. (e.g. 5 year old= €5). Kids 0, 1, 2 years old are free if they sit on parents lap.

Pets

Animals (like dogs) cannot go inside, however, we are willing to find a solution for them to stay outside.

Faith

Our community has Jesus at the centre; we are followers of Jesus. When Jesus walked the earth, he had many followers, and we still follow him now. We are not perfect, nor do we put our worldview on others. We are learning to love, to be in relationship with God. We don’t do this out of our strength, but from a place of being loved and forgiven. We are loved by God and so are you. That simple fact changes everything.

Jesus Meditation

We have a daily and a weekly routine. These routines revolve around work and practical tasks, but also involve meals, gatherings to worship and pray, moments of teaching, excursions, hikes, and moments of meditation. Every evening we guide the Jesus Meditation and pilgrims are invited to join. This is a time to be in Jesus´ presence, through his Spirit. It is a time to become silent and listen. It is a time to come away from the  many voices of the day and go to a place where we can hear the still small voice of Jesus.
The Jesus meditation starts at 20:30 and ends around 21:00. After that you are welcome to hang around, chat and enjoy a cup of tea. Please do not come in after the door has been closed.
