Chitre is a great little town with a lot of people watching to do! Just ask Mike! Mike is a very relaxed guy with a very welcoming demeanor. I stayed there for almost a month, and had a great time in such a little city! I am still in Panama for awhile, so I may stop by again, who knows!

My first workaway experience couldn't be better, Fiona is a great person who gave me the freedom and all kind of facilities. I only can thank you Fiona for all you did for me and also all the good moments I had with all of you (Tilly, the singer & James, the ping-pong player). See you soon! Una abraçada!

I spent two weeks in Vivianos place and I can say, that this is a wonderful place for everybody who enjoys working with animals! Be prepared that you work on your own responsibility and the experience you will have is what you make of it on your own. Unless you dont have a car you are mostly dependent on Viviano driving you somewhere and very rare bus traffic, so be prepared that you will spend most of the time / evenings on the farm. Viviano and his mother are very nice hosts and I had a great time with a lot of music and inspiration in their place and also learnt a lot about animals, birds, italian cooking, wine-making, gardening etc.

I had an absolutely lovey time staying 'au ferme de Chenaud' with Genevieve, Erick, Helouise, George and Mathild. It was very easy to settle in and feel at home. The work was pleasant and the 3 cats, numerous goats, 2 horses and Pony, 1 dog and plenty of chickens are adorable. I learnt a lot in terms of agriculture and cooking/ baking (though I still didn't get the tarte tartain right) and defiantly had the opportunity to improve my french. The second time I visited I got sick for a few days and they were lovely, bringing me tea and checking up on me. If you want to spend some time living light and reading or just relaxing Erick has an amazing library and there is ample free time to do so. Thank you so much for having me stay, I thoroughly enjoyed staying! Best wishes! xx

This was my first experience as a volunteer, and I could not have chosen a better place! The hospitality was something out of this world, and the chores were not at all difficult or hard. I had plenty of free-time and the surrounding is very relaxing. I loved the way I was recieved and treated as a part of the staff all the time and I was always given the opportunity to intermingle with the locals. Not to mention that the food and the rooms are fantastic! It was the best experience abroad I have had so far!

I can\'t say enough good things about my stay at this Cottage so I\'m just gonna keep it simple and say only that I LOVED IT.. Loved it so much in fact that what was meant to be only a 2 to 3 week stay turned very easily into 10 months :o)) Easy going, friendly and creative, that be this family through and through and with a welcome I know for sure will be hard to beat. I\'ve left now for some new flavours but I\'ve come away knowing that I\'ve made some good friends and I\'m already looking forward to seeing them again :o)))

I spent 5 days with Delphine and her daughter in their beautiful home. They are so nice and generous, and really made me feel like I was part of the family! I helped Delphine decorate her attic, and also helped with the cooking and even got the chance to make some jewellery. We made great progress in the attic, and all the jobs were so enjoyable, that it didn't feel like work! Delphine and Justine are wonderful people, and I had a great time with them. I wanted to improve my French, and we spoke French the whole time I was there - even though Delphine has amazing English! They both made me feel very welcome, and I enjoyed every minute! I really hope that I can go back soon :)

I stayed with Brigitte and Philippe for about 3 weeks from August until September and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was a great experience in a beautiful region in France, Brigitte and Philippe are nice and welcoming and the other workaways were great fun to be with. Since Brigitte is very generous with lending her car we had lots of opportunities to go and visit the many sights in the Dordogne. The work isn\'t hard and we did get a fair share of wine with our meals. As well as that we cooked a meal for dinner twice which was a lot of fun and played Trivial Pursuit with Brigitte, Pauline and their neighbour Aurélie. Merci beaucoup pour ce séjour!

It was absolutely incredible being able to help make their home a better place. If you are looking for a good experience and a great family to work with, look no further. I will be forever grateful for the Bitterwolf\'s kindness, hospitality, and contagious attitude! Thanks again guys ;D

Straight away I felt like a part of his family and really enjoined sharing life with them and learning about Karen culture. I had luck that I was there in time of Sonkran so with other volunteers had a chance to celebrate it in traditional way with lot of water (of course), music, dancing, Karen whiskey and delicious food! All Karen people are warm-hart and genuine, I left place filled up with positive energy and will return for sure coz part of me stayed there! Thank you Mr Sao and Mrs Savani!!!

Unfortunately we could only stay 8 days in here, because we had other plans already. But if we go back to Portugal, we definitely want to go back to this place and then hope to stay much, much longer time. We, already miss all other workers, hope to see them some day again!

I stayed with Peter and Lya for almost two months in August and September 2012 and it was a great experience. They welcomed me as part of the family and they hosted me in a cozy apartment. Lya happily involved me in all the aspects of running a B&B and I feel that I learnt a lot from this experience. Moreover I \"took over\" the kitchen and baked cakes and cookies for the guests and for friends and that was also very nice. Besse is a beautiful mountain village with great walks all around and beautiful views wherever you turn. I would definitely recommend Peter and Lya as hosts for a workaway experience. They are caring and ready to do stuff together but also give you a lot of own space and time to discover around on your own. Thanks Lya and Peter! Un abbraccio, Elisa

I've found in my short travels that the most important thing about a place is the people. And the people I met while working here for a little over a month made it one of my best times in recent memory. I was lucky to work with some other really amazing volunteers, and all the staff are kind and like to have a good time. ;) I say work, but most of the time it was easy or even enjoyable. Having good company makes the time go by faster, of course. And what a magical place Minca is. Its location right between the sea and the mountains is perfect, and there is still so much I didn't have a chance to see in town and the surrounding area. I'm looking forward to returning some day. Thanks for everything, Jay, Annie, Kim, et al.!

To say I miss you guys is an understatement. Nar and family are working to materialise their beliefs and passion about ecological, respectful living and spending time with them will def invigorate you. There's so much to be fascinated by and to indulge in at their farm - food is ridiculously amazing (fresh veg & fruits, vegetable patties, blow-your-mind desserts w hot turkish tea...), people look out for you and are always willing to share their knowledge, the air if fresh and it must be beautiful now in Jan/Feb, blanketed with snow. I'd have to buy a ticket back pronto if I reminisce any more.

We stayed with Hanne and Milton for 5 weeks and loved every minute of it, really couldn't have wished for a better workaway experience! They live in a picture-book perfect house in the rural country side of Beutow and own a beautiful fishing lake. The work ranged from maintaining the lake, gardening, wood work, painting to shabby chic-ing furniture. Every day was different and we thoroughly enjoyed each and every task! They have lots of books for you to read and films to watch in your spare time. There're also two bikes which you can use to cycle around the surrounding areas and explore the village which is very picturesque. And of course there's also the lake to have a go at fishing! Plus the cities Lunenburg and Hamburg are not too far away. Cannot write a review without mentioning the food too! Unbelievably good! Probably thought about Milton's homemade burgers every day since we left... Plus the Lufts family, Marco and Paddy were an awesome bunch of people too and we really loved getting to know them as well. Overall it was all kinds of amazing, we can't thank Hanne and Milton enough for being such stellar hosts! Pair of legends!

We helped Madeleine and Marcus for a couple of weeks in the lead up to their first guests arriving. This was a time when there was a lot to do, and with them working long days it was difficult to feel relaxed in our down time and of course we wanted to help relieve their stress. However we were well looked after and the room we stayed in was very comfortable and clean and with a nice bathroom next door. Most importantly we were included in family life rather than being made to feel like serfs (which has been our experience elsewhere!) As the weather warmed up we got in a couple of nice swims in the pool and we got taken to a market, and a lovely village to explore on our time off. We also got to use the bikes. Madeleine cooked some lovely meals, despite being very busy and not having much time to shop, it is amazing what she whipped up! We miss this beautiful and interesting slice of rural France, the family and the lovely animals. Hope to come back one day for a holiday!

Special thanks to Olive and Kerry for all your suggestions for fabulous walks on the cliffs and beaches of the Gower Peninsula. If you love to walk, this is the workaway for you! Even in February we were able to walk for hours almost every day.

It was my first workaway exchange, and it couldn't have started in a better way. Arthur is really kind and does all he can so you feel at home. The work is very light, walking Jack and a little bit of gardening! Though i suppose it was more a matter of jack walking me, and he showed me around the beautiful spanish countryside with great thouroughness! ;) if you are looking for a relaxing stay in a beautiful environment with nice and easygoing company, this is where you should go! But I was also offered to be driven to the metro so I could go take a look at Valencia if i wanted (as I said - terribly nice and considerate!) I recommend this host highly, and I really feel that I should've stayed longer and would love to come back! Greetings from Granada, and give jack lots of hugs from me! / Felicia

We got along well, she is a lot of fun to work with and be around, has a great sense of humour and made me laugh a lot! The whole family speak very good english and were all very welcoming...Even the cheeky 9 year old who is a nice boy really! :) The scenery and views of the mountains and countryside are amazing, have some lovely photos and great memories of my time here, would highly recommend!! The accommodation is really nice, big and feels homely, and is next to the main house so you have your own space too. I also really enjoyed the experiences i had working with and riding the Icelandic horses on the farm, lots of fun! Also was able to borrow their car a few times to drive to the nearby towns which was nice. I will miss Rakel and her family and the fun times..hope to go back to visit them maybe next year!

The three girls and fun, independant and easy to get along with, I miss Sonia´s singing! The workload is reasonable and leaves a good part of your day to do other things. I was also able to join in alot of activities such as snowshoeing, skiing, northenlight wathching, husky sledging, feltmaking, breadmaking, and Maya even lent me a yoga mat and some of her books for me to discover yoga, as there weren t any classes going on during my stay. The food is excellent and like many others, I have taken a few recepies home:) Finally I would just like to add how breathtakingly beautiful this part of the world is, from the multicolored sunsets and starlit nights to the healthy relationship that the people have with silence. Would definitely recommend Aurora.

What can I say...GREAT Workaway place. Working with Ian was very educational and fun. We did lots of different things...the best maybe, making the paradise terras where we had after work wine and beer with a great view of the Midi Pyrenees. Nina cooks (more than) good nosh and the cookies are fab! We had nice conversations at the dinner table and lots of laughs. The whole atmosphere is relaxed, working hours are evolving as the day goes by and depending what there is to be done (pottering about..). It's a quiet place, and there are some nice walks in the area, passing horses, cows, sheep, goats and donkeys. Nina loves doing crochet and Ian is into woodturning.

Oh my goodness...seriously the BEST summer of my entire life. There are no words to describe how awesome it was working for Wild Blue Yonder! They trained me to be a raft guide. They trained me in the office. My work ethic definitely got better. There weren't a lot of down days, but we had SO much fun. WBY is definitely a family. You do your part around the house (metaphorically speaking), and you get rewarded. I really hope that I can return next year. Yo, Gina, Freeman, Rio, Miska, Dean, Ciara, Marco, and all the other staff were awesome. I cried and cried when I left. Haha. But thank you guys so much for giving me the best experience ever. You guys are awesome!

Brij, Lynn, Kavin and Oliver are honestly one of the nicest families I've ever met! I spent a great week with them, I learned a lot about renovating an old barn and I feel honored to be a little part of such a great project. The barn is amazing and I even got to sleep in one of the nicest rooms! I never worked too hard and had a lot of freetime to spend with this great family and their friends. The kids are just adorable and the food was always really good! :-) I loved listening to all those interesting stories Brij and Lynn shared with me and another workkawayer about their exciting life! I can only recommend this wonderful family to every workawayer, it was a great experience and I hope to get the chance to come back and see the process of the barn and their life! Thank you for this great week!:-)

It was a pleasure to stay with Rosmarie and Josef. They have a very nice family and I always enjoyed having conversations with Rosmarie and tring to communicate with Josef and Simon (I do not speak German, although I was able to learn some with them). The food was great, and much of it was very traditional which was fun to try! The work was not very difficult. They went out of their way to make sure that I had a good experience with them, and I really did! Winden is a very small town and the house is mostly surounded by farm land, but it wasn't too difficult to make day trips to Munich. I recommend staying with this host if you are seeking a Bavarian experience!

What can we say about Udo, Cristi and Aoni Leon, the best family in Samaipata (and maybe Bolivia..) I arrived there as a volunteer, I left as a friend. I cant find the words to explain how my experience with them was wonderful. The time I past with this family was incredible! They have a hole world to share with you, always a great story to count,(travellers always have good stories to count!) youre learning new things everyday. Thats for all these reasons that we call this place : School of life o Escuela de la vida. For me, the experience with them is an experience that I will never forget. There will always be a special place in my heart for this WONDERFUL family. Workshops, nature, river, firecamp, good bread (hehe) and a lot of love and good energies. Thats how I can resume the nice and easy-living with them. Thanks for everything xxxxx this was probably one of the best experience of my 6 months travelling Cati

This was my first workaway experience so I didn't know how everything is going to work. However I felt very welcomed right in the beginning and Andy picked me up from train station with their cool Spitfire! Food was extremely delicious and Andy and Tracy both have a great sense of humour. Along with guesthouse work I got to do various jobs, for example to photograph Tracy's antiques, which was interesting! The area is quiet, but I really enjoyed the peacefulness. I had a lovely time, thank you all: Andy, Tracy, Molly and Jack! And of course Buster and the Cat!

I had a great time at the farm! Unfortunately all the corn was harvested the day I arrived. But we did go to a beach volley tournament in town that day to sell the corn with the whole group. It was great fun. The surroundings are great to spent your free time. Work and eating times are not fixed so you would need to have some flexibility in that sense. I really recommend this place. The house felt like a home right from the start.

Absolutely amazing workaway experience, it was my first time using workaway and I didn't really know what to expect, but from the first day to the last I was welcomed and everyone was so nice and helpful. I met some great Workawayers and we had lots of fun. The food cooked in the hotel, was delicious especially the grill night. Of course a special thanks to Sylvia and her family who looked after me for a couple of days while I was near Hamburg. It was such an amazing way to spend my Easter holidays for two weeks. I hope to visit this area of Germany again. Awesome!

First experience as a workawayer could not be better. I have met some real friends here, worked, breathed the hot air, lived in a tree house... Jen is a great cook, she made me gave up on meat, George is a fountain of travelling and living experience, their daughters are wonderful and playful, working there gives you the pleasure of seeing everyday what you are doing with your own hands (I have helped George in fixing a small roof and an external stairway)...Good easy work and plenty of food. Met some exceptional girls there, Chels, Meg and Grace...Lovely people, landscape, beautiful night sky, fresh food, close enough to the beach and a lovely little town. You cannot ask for more! I will be back there for sure! Thank you Jen and George for having me there!

I had a really great time at Susan and John's place, I couldn't ask for a better accomodation or family to stay with for my first workaway experience. I spent 3 weeks there, and they were extremely kind, generous and wonderful hosts. I felt very comfortable in their house, and the food was great (Susan is a great cook!). The work was fun and enjoyable: help in the garden, cleaning stuff and some sand in the rainy days. Ashburton is a quite village in the Devon countryside, there are a lot of path and hills where you can walk with John's pet Tallullah, the most lovely dog I've ever meet. And if sometimes you need the town life you can easily join the towns of Plymouth and Exeter. Thank you Susan and John.

I love thisFarm! Hari and his wife Kum Kum are some of the most compassionate and kind people I have met. Hari\'s vision for the farm is inspiring and the work makes you feel healthy and happy. I stayed for only 10 days but wish that I could have stayed longer! We mulched, weeded and worked on building a cob kitchen while I was there. There was time for much needed hard work but there was also time to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The farm would really benefit from people with a background in carpentry and organic farming, so if that is your passion then definitely come and help! I worked hard, played hard, ate delicious food, and met some people that I will never forget. Thank you Hari!

Well...i could write an entire book about my whole experience at Karen's place! This was a dream...but let me tell a bit more. \"A time in life for resetting and getting things more clear. It was the best decision because Karen is a really lovely person that knows a lot of things not only in theory but most importantly in practice. Stuff about horses, psychology, healthy living etc... It is not a common place that people visit and ride the horses like they are motorbikes with metal things in their mouth...it is an approach that gets you bounded with the horses. I have learned so many things about the horses (Merlin, Caramel, Pharras, Paul, Judge, Don and all the other beings), about me and about people...Karen was there to explain over and over again! Before arriving there i always dreamed of riding a horse...but after arriving at this place i was grounded. I wanted to clean, water and feed them so that i could understand about their nature...and maybe one day i can really ride a horse as one, like in Greek mythology - Centaurus. As everything in life it needs time, patience & love :) The work was enjoyable and we shared with other workawayers...around 5 hours a day! I used to love working more by organising and fixing stuff around after asking Karen of course :) It is a peaceful area where the scenery is just relaxing and wonderful. The kids are cool and we had some really funny moments...! I was able to use the internet, play guitar and enjoy Karen's amazing cooking skills...and homemade fresh bread...yeah that was guttttttttt!!!! Vielen dank...kisses from Cyprus & hugs :)\"

Javier and Alejandra are very open and kind people. They, together with Alejadra\'s nice family in Jerez, always made me feel welcome and gave me the feeling that I belonged with their family. This experience has been a big step for my personal development. I\'ve learned so much about a culture, opinions and ideas, different than mine because we\'ve exchanged a lot. Lourdes is a child with a pure heart, just like her parents. She is very smart, and she picks up English very quickly. Once you find out what kind of thing\'s she likes to play with, time will fly by. I\'ve learned a lot from her and she has reminded me that playing is a lot of fun. The hours you work are in the morning so I had a lot of free time the rest of the day. I spend only three months with this family, but they will always have a special place in my heart.

I felt very welcome by Allan and Maja. They treated me as though I was a very special guest. They are very friendly people who were always on watch as to how they can make my stay more pleasant. They literally read my thoughts as to what I would like. I took part mainly in building the inner walls of the house. I was a total beginner and Allan and another volunteer patiently showed me how to do everything, and they appreciated all the work I did. I got to do the whole process of building the walls, so it was interesting. Also Allan, Maja (and Tobija) took us volunteers twice to the top of the nearby mountains and we collected plants for the green roof of the house and of course had a great hike in the beautiful surroundings. All in all it was a great adventure both for experiencing the Slovenian people and culture and for building a straw bale house.

Thanks for the long, relaxing evenings having good chats and the odd midnight pool plunge! Your food was delicious, and your warm hospitality made it hard to leave.

First of all I have to say that It has been very difficuult to write a text that summarizes all my feeling during the eleven weeks I spent there with Sarah, Nigel, Chris, Emma, Claire, etc. From the very beginning, I felt as if were part of the family and to be honest I had never thought of being so lucky and be able to enjoy that way in my first experience as a workaway. You have an extraordinary home, family and friends; I enjoyed each moment living there with you because you have a lot of friends and I could have a nice chat with everybody: this was georgeous because I could very often meet different people, it also was fantastic when I went with you and I could listen to you playing folk music. The work there is very simple and almost each day you can do a different work. This has been one of the best experiences in my life and i wish to go back in the summer so as I can see Tess, Molly, Willow and Spicke again!!. Hugs and kisses for everybody, always in my heart.

What can we say, we didn't really want to go, and were welcomed to stay on. We signed up for 2 weeks and stayed 3. Nicky, her husband Mick, daughter, and even faithful dog Mikey, were much nicer than we ever hoped for. The gardening and curtain making, plus the climb up to the chateau, left us feeling strong and satisfied. Nicky was very flexible, to allow us to enjoy the local markets. We were shown what needed to be done, and she trusted us with the tasks. The apartment was more than enough pay for our 8:30am to 12:30 pm work. Plus we had a lovely coffee/tea break each day. We leased our own car, so made extensive travels on weekends. Can't speak to public transport, but I know that Nicky helped others out with rides to get settled in. Hesitate recommending only because we are tempted to keep this stay \"a well-kept secret!\"

We spent a month in the lovely and warm company of Hendrik ,Christine and their friendly cats at Raspberry Hill and we enjoyed every moment of it.

We loved all our tasks and delicious dinners sprinkled with lovely and rich conversations about life. Eberholzen is a beautiful and very friendly village with amazing surroundings, we also enjoyed our free time in Hannover, Hildesheim and Kassel. Likewise, we had the opportunity to attend our first meditation workshop together and we must say it was a wonderful experience. We were so excited to be part of the Raspberry Hill project. It is the perfect place for couples to retreat , relax and raise their awareness and love with the help of Hendrik and Christine. We are deeply grateful for such a magnificent encounter and wish them nothing but love and success. As for you workawayers, we assure you of a very good time working on a beautiful project with lovely hosts.

Hanne and Milton were everything you'd want in Work-away hosts. The experience on a whole was exceptional and I'd recommend anyone to stay there and help out with their blossoming farm lives. The food and accommodation were great and I felt instantly accepted by not only them but by their community of lovely friends as well. The work was never over demanding but there is always something to be done from manual and domestic chores to larger projects. Milton and I (with Hanne's help) built a new greenhouse during my stay which was a very satisfying project. Both Milton and Hanne were extremely socially generous, in the evenings we would often watch movies or go out to dinner on occasion, though I was there as a lone work-awayer, I never felt alone or an outsider. I was given my own space when I needed it but was included when ever I wanted to be. I borrowed a bike from Hanne and Milton on Several occasions too and rode around the surrounding countryside which was very picturesque and very bike friendly. If you are an angler, i would recommend this place as Milton could do with some fishing lessons as well!

Everyday a different and interesting task, and always learning so much about eco friendly living. Thank you all so much hope to make it make there some day soon :-)

I had a great time with Margaret and co. I spent 3 months over the winter there and had a really amazing time. I would consider Margaret as a good friend now, just like family, I was part of the household for a fairly long time and I would love to one day go back and visit for sometime in the warmer climate that Bulgaria boasts in the summer that I have yet to experience. Thanks for everything Margaret, I learned a lot on so many different levels and I think your art project is inspiring, best wishes and I will see you again sometime :)

I spent two months with Eric, Veronique and Ajan, and I had loads of fun! As my first workaway, I was a little nervous, but from the moment I got into the car with Veronique I felt at home. If you've got an open mind and genuinely want to learn, there's no better place to be. I learned a lot about everything, (not just fruit trees) and the chickens and bees were pretty awesome too. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer, but I felt it was time for a change of scenery :) Good luck with the grafting, and the rest of the year! Maybe I'll drop by and visit before I head home, and see how everything has grown. Thanks for everything!

A wonderful host with warm hearts and open arms. I loved packing pet food and the ride around to deliver was really pretty. the villages are small and neat and the pub life really inviting. Merilyn and Paul are a friendly and easy-going couple with lovely animals. Baking was fun and the work easy. If you like the countryside with green fields and bunnies, this is a good place to be: no stress or noise from the city, just pure serenity...

Last summer, I spent four wonderful weeks here. The hosts are the most warm, caring and knowledgeable people I\'ve met in a while! I learned so much about gardening, canning, cheese making and building. The place is peaceful, the accommodations are comfortable and the food is healthy and delicious. In fact, I enjoyed my stay so much that I can\'t wait to go back :)))

Starting our ’workaway carrier’ at Jane’s was the best that could have happened to us! The basic idea of workawaying is accomplished by hosts like Jane. Her great hospitality and kindness motivated us to bring out the best in ourselves. Our work was always very well appreciated. We mainly worked in the garden: planting palms and yuccas, covering the garden path with gravel and painting the trullo. We loved every minute we spent on that beautiful property. We started to work around 9 or 10 until we had our delicious lunch together at 2pm. If we were not finished with our daily project we worked for an other hour in the afternoon. Our days ended with long conversations over the most amazing dinners and local wines. On our chosen days off we could cycle around the area, otherwise Jane was always happy to take us to the nicest, hidden places of Puglia. Thank You for everything!!! Love, Cili and Matyi

Tim and Juliet were the perfect hosts. They welcomed us with open arms into their family and were a pleasure both to work for and to socialise with. We had loads of laughs and lots of fun all round. Fantastic accommodation and food - especially Juliet's cakes which were plentiful and delicious. We really can't speak highly enough of these two amazing people and hope to visit again very soon.

We LOVE Sarah and Richard! After spending a week at their house, our faces were actually sore from smiling and laughing so much. We really could'nt have wished for a better first workaway experience! We really appriciated and learned a lot from how they both trusted us to do things we had never tried before. Their view of life in general is so refreshing, they really inspired the both of us! If Sarah and Richard were on \"Come dine with me\", we would easily give them one billion points for the food, the company, the entertainment and the love! We really hope to come back someday, and they are both so welcome to Norway! These people definately have the X-factor!

We had the most wonderful time with Uschi, Reinhard and ALL the animals.. it's a real struggle to put it into words. The setting of their beautiful place is great- this tiny little village surrounded by forrest and farmland. Although some may consider it isolated, it is really wonderful to get away from it all (and there are towns nearby!). We really felt that we were taken in and treated as part of the family- it was so sad to leave. Some of our favourite memories include drinking mulled wine around the bonfire with neighbours and friends. The work is not hard, as long as you aren't afraid of a bit of poo, and then most of the afternoon was free for walks with Fynn (world's best dog!), working with the horses or whatever you choose. Uschi is a fantastic teacher and so willing to share her knowledge. We would highly recommend going to stay with Uschi and Reinhard if you are after an authentic German workaway experience, with wonderful people and horses!

Erna and Terry are simply wonderful, no words can describe how grateful I am to them for the amazing time I had in Normandy. Every meal was hearty and delicious, they never wanted me to work too much and they were so kind to show me the surroundings driving me everywhere (Normandy beaches, Domfront, Bayeux, Mont Sain-Michel and more!) and never accepted gas money! The farm is really nice and there are a lot of animals: dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, geese, kune kune pigs (btw, how are the seven piglets?), rabbits, and eighteen (plus one) bl**dy sheep; but Pip and Meg are definitely my favourite, I miss them a lot! If you want to workaway, have fun and visit Normandy, you definitely have to come here. It will be hard for me to find better hosts! Terry and Erna thank you very very much for everything (and sorry if I took so much to write this feedback), I really hope to see you again!

I know that I have made some life-long friends there. Leaving was so much harder than I ever anticipated. Thank you so much for your generous love and open hearts. I was in the Monastery during the Winter Months. We mostly spent our time making icons, learning English, singing and laughing. It was a joy to be with you. Thank you for having me.

I volunteered in Korvala from mid-february till the 23d of march 2013. It was my first workaway experience and definitely an amazing one ! First of all, Jaana, Seppo and the kids are a super kind, warm, and welcoming family and made me feel right at home. Then by extension all the \"korvala family\" members (other volunteers, and neighbors) were really friendly too, so the atmosphere here was really good ! Concerning the \"work\", if you love being outdoors and take care of dogs and stuff, then you won't feel it's work at all :-) Plus I learnt tons of things concerning the kennel, the sledding, Finland, and also new specific pieces of english vocabulary too while I was there ! Jaana was always ready to teach and explain us almost anything, without any stress and always with a smile ! (and so did Amanda helping me with recognizing all the dogs at first :-), big help !!). To be short, I really enjoyed my time there, it went by too fast and I miss all of it !! The good times with the children, the safari days, the doooogss... So THANK YOU again for everything !

I had a wonderful experience staying with Patrick, Anna and their family and would highly recommend them to other Workawayers. The work was well planned, varied and very rewarding and worthwhile. But mostly - what a fabulous, fun, creative, inspiring and open minded family! We shared great discussion and laughter, delicious homegrown food, a welcoming and very comfortable home, and a lifestyle that I aspire to. I had a great experience of French hospitality in a beautiful environment and the opportunity to really learn about other cultures. Thank you. I wish I could have stayed longer. I look forward to keeping in touch with the family, and next time I'm in France I will definitely visit and help in the garden! :-) PS Hi to Buddha, the cats, the chickens, the sheep and those cheeky donkeys! I hope the garden is thriving as the weather warms up.

I spent 10 days with Julie, Alisha and Millie in February. Mallorca is a wonderful and calm island, it’s sunny and green even in winter. Julie has a lovely house in heart of the island. I did gardening in her beautiful garden, and once I helped at her friend’s riding school. By the way, I was lucky for met some of Julie’s friends, all of them friendly and funny people. Amazing landscape surrounds Julie’s place, it is ideal for jogging and riding (I tried it once, big thank Julie!:)). Julie is a good cook indeed! We made a super indian dinner together. She was absolutely kind and helpful through this time. It was really nice to meet you Julie, you and your daughter are very great and friendly people! All the bests for you!

There are so many positive things to say about our first Workaway experience ! Malc and Jen are absolutely charming and very welcoming: they immediately made us feel at home. Jen is a really good cook and her delicious meals are always accompanied with plenty of cheer, great music, conversations and english-french-italian-sardinian lessons! ;) The work is well balanced with entertainment and free time; the place is amazing and we seriously fell in love with the donkeys! We also learned a lot of things about tiles, feeding and taking care of animals, gardening, building and restoring. We will miss so many things about this place: Malc's stories,Jen's desserts, french butter, the donkeys and the silly cats! We had a great time with Malc and Jen and we hope to see them again. We recommend this place for everybody! Cià, un abbraccio forte! :) Roberta e Matteo

Awesome isn't a word I like to use too often but there's no other way to describe my work away experience with this family. I spent a month in Dome Creek during autumn. Most of my working time was spent with Dave and a couple of other work-awayers doing firewood, gardening, digging, berry picking and any other general outdoors work that needed to be done. We tended to work for around five hours a day with weekends off. The work is pretty physical, however, the atmosphere while working was light and fun with many a song and story shared. Dave has a talent for making people feel appreciated which is no more evident than when you're covered in dirt from head to toe and sore all over! The rest of the time we spent with the family (though there was no pressure to if I wanted time to myself) playing with their two young rascals, helping in the kitchen, attempting to play guitar with Dave, taking trips into the local surroundings, playing board games, playing with their wonderful dogs and enjoying each other's company around a campfire. To sum my experience up: the atmosphere is warm and fun, the surroundings are stunning and the work is tough but rewarding.

We just spent 1 week at this place and we are very much convinced that this project is being run from the bottom of the manager's heart. As we've been there only for one week we were more or less engaged as assistant teachers and we did organizational stuff such as website management. We wish would have been able to stay longer but maybe next time. Thanks again to Sopheap, Cebolase, Kanha and all our fellow volunteers for the nice time we had here. Hopefully we will see each other again one day. :-)

They work was varied, which kept it interesting - everything from chopping wood, clearing paddocks to plastering and painting the house. Hours were great as after lunch each day I had free to myself, either hang around the house or explore the local area. The kids were great fun, and I'll miss them both! Jack (7 years old) made me some beautiful paintings as a goodbye present which I will hang up on my wall when I get home! :)

I am SOOOO thankful that Karolina and Max welcomed me with opened arms into their quinta. THIS is what I will now consider as my official first workaway experience and it was magical!! So much happened in only 3 weeks!Not only did I get to eat the freshest produce from the trees and garden (I will miss my nespra and orange breakfast by the way ;)), I got to witness and learn bits and pieces of farm life, but also I got whisked by they're friends to explore Algarve and understand why people come and stay a little longer :) Thank you so much for rounding up all the massage bodies.

How to describe this experience? My words won’t do it justice. I had an incredible time with Tonio, the entire clan, and my fellow workawayers. I felt like another member of the family. We all shared in the hard work picking olives, amazing food, great stories, and lots of laughs! I’ll never forget little Rosalba saying one day in the olive groove “Mattieu, I’m Olive!” while sitting in an olive crate. Gracia (Tonio’s lovely mother) prepared food for us each day, era sempra bounissimo! We would get a call to our apartment for dinner, everyone would run down drooling over the smells reaching their noses. Concerning the work in the olive groves, I enjoyed it a lot, although it was physically demanding it was satisfying. We always had a break midday to enjoy a great meal and relax. When the sun was out hitting the leaves of the olive trees, it was magic! When we weren’t working Tonio took us out on excursions throughout the region which gave us great exposure to the culture, food, and people in the area. Thinking back I have very fond memories from my time in the beautiful Italian country side, satisfying hard work with friends who became my extended family. Tonio e tutte le famiglia, grazie tante!

Thank you all and I love you all for helping me learn and grow from the time and experiences shared together. I enjoyed every moment and unforgettable times with these wonderful people. Did i mention that you are in a beautiful part of Spain with bicycles, hot tub, sauna, pool hammocks, books, movie projector, lots of fruit, amazing people (said this one already but can\'t emphasize more) and lots of fun. Be prepared to work and play otherwise Jamie or Olga will break out the whip. If you are sensitive to noise at night bring ear plugs as the dogs can get a bit loud. What a life changing experience.

Angelo gave us great advice and even lent us cold weather clothes to climb the volcano. During our time we him we worked on clearing his property after some renovations, some winter gardening and chopping firewood. The work wasn't difficult, we could do it on our own schedule, and it was enjoyable to help him get the property in order. We enjoyed his company and that of his lovely old pup, Asia. Recommended!
