Internal Regime Regulation

Internal Regime Regulation

In 1950, the Instituto de Religiosas de San José de Gerona acquired the well-known Masia de Can Vicenç in Solius, with the vision of turning it into a place of meeting, rest and formation for the nuns of the Congregation. In June 1957, this idea became a reality and the first nuns went to the Masia to do their spiritual exercises.

Over the years this activity was consolidated, being a reference point, not only for the congregation itself, but for the whole religious community, so that in 2002 work began to create what is now known as Casa Santa Elena. A two-block building, with 82 rooms, meeting rooms, chapels and dining rooms in a well-kept garden environment.

In 2017 Casa Santa Elena opens as a Hospitality and also welcomes those people and/or groups who want to stay, to rest, train or enjoy a holiday in an environment of serenity and peace.

Casa Santa Elena’s gates open at 7 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. During this time slot, to exit through the main gate dial “1234” on the dashboard, and to enter use the external intercom or the encoded card delivered for this purpose.

To make a group reservation, a non-refundable advance of 20% of the total amount must be made. This advance must be paid by bank transfer or cash at Casa Santa Elena’s reception at least one month before the check-in. The remaining balance will be paid to the establishment upon presentation of the corresponding invoice for the total of the contracted services.
