I spent 1 month in September with Lukas, and then another 3 from January to March. I can honestly say that so many of my experiences there will be hard to beat! From spending time with the 16 wonderful huskies to being able to participate in a sled race with a team, there are so many opportunities for those interested and dedicated. Lukas is a great guy with excellent humour, very welcoming and relaxed but passionate about his work and dogs, always excited to see what you have to offer. If you have any special skills (or hidden cooking talents) be sure he will find and encourage them! The dogs are some of the best I've ever had the pleasure of working with, and I miss them all very much. There are so many personalities and fascinating dynamics, the opportunity to work and spend time with such good natured, skilled and fascinating animals is a must for all interested in animals. Seeing and being part of the progression of the dogs has been a unique and hugely satisfying experience for me that I will never forget. Life in Gnadendorf is full of scenery, great walks with the dogs and surprising opportunities (like mysterious beach volleyball courts!). If you need a lot of partying, you should think before coming here, but if you are motivated, adaptable, excited and dedicated to work with the dogs and other projects then pack your sense of humour, love for the dogs and get on a plane! Thanks for the memories, Lukas, and I'm looking forwards to visiting everyone again!

I had a WONDERFUL time at the montessori school. The children are so charming and it was blessing to get to work with them. I feel that I got more from the experience than I was able to give. This is a great opportunity for someone who is interested/has experience with teaching and with German. Living in Bavaria was also wonderful! Everyone at the school was so friendly and welcoming. Additionally, Lydia and her family were truly wonderful hosts and showed me all around Bavaria. I loved my time here and highly recommend this Workaway experience.

I spent two glorious weeks working for Sandy and Ewan and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The work was varied both inside and out; cleaning, gardening, feeding the chooks and sheep, and even helping with cattle mustering, I enjoyed every single day in the most beautiful setting. Sandy was such a great host and we certainly ate our fill of fresh eggs and grass-fed meat each day. Thank you so much for making my first Workaway experience such a positive one x

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.

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.

It was my first workaway experience to stay with Suse and Fabian's lovely family and I felt like I was part of it. I had a lot of fun taking care of their 3 children. During the 3 weeks I stayed, I helped in accompanying children for homework and playing piano, teaching Chinese, cooking, painting wall...I also enjoy watching Suse's figure show, drama class and to learn more about how a family owned theatre runs. Wennigsen is a beautiful and good place to experience countryside life. I had my own space in the wooden cabin in garden but it can be a bit cold in Winter. I would love to see the family and Wennigsen again in another time in Summer maybe.

My partner and I helped out on the farm for 6 weeks. June and Oz own 2 beautiful properties that we were able to fully engulf ourselves with. Between daily chores of animal maintenance to renovating an 18th century farm house, to reworking the garden to just about anything . They both showed us the ways of how the Haute Pyreneesers do their thing. We meet numerous amounts of people as well during our stay. We fell in love with their animals (especially mr. kneehigh), and we difficult to leave. Even though things seem crazy sometimes we were always able to come back to ground level by the end of the day. It would be amazing to see them and the progression of their place in the future.

The school offers foreigners the opportunity to work at Colombia’s Lago de Tota and teach locals about the importance of water and wetlands. Each volunteer will be immersed into the culture, have unique experiences with the locals, and positively impact the surrounding environment. Overall, the opportunity to work with them is an incredible experience. You will learn about a new culture, speak better Spanish, and have a dramatic impact on preserving Lago de Tota and the surrounding wetlands. Felipe and his family are very accommodating and will make you feel at home. I would recommend this opportunity to anyone interested in Latin America, Spanish, the environment or education. I learn so much about the Environment and Spanish during my time. Speaking Spanish helps, but even if you know a minimal amount Felipe is happy to build a teaching program (such as teaching English) around what your skills/passions are. If you have any questions about what the experience is like, please feel free to send me a message. Saludos, William

We were staying here for a month and we had a great time! Audrey and Ciril are super nice and fun. We cooked and ate all together, talked a lot, played with cats and dogs - the posada felt like a real home. The work is very easy, there is plenty of time to enjoy the beach, the garden and trips to the nearby islands. Ciril even took us diving which was great! Audrey did what she could to improve our very basic Spanish (useful there!). We have amazing memories from Venezuela. It is definitely a very relaxing place perfect for people who like peace and quiet. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Hello Bobby, is was a wounderful time with you, full of experience and getting in contact with interesting people and a beautiful area. Working with the books and discussing literature with the customers was a wonderful way to explore English language. It was the best that could happen to us... Thanks for your hospitality and the trip to the Skellig Michael, it was an impression of natural beauty and history of mankind never to forget. It was nice to do some wood work and painting and to see things done. Hope many guests and \"willing workers\" will find their way into your hospitable house And!!!!!! Please don't forget to tell all the customers about the real treasure in your house, in the wifi-room at the end of the corridor: A real piece of the original transatlantic cable, laid by the \"Great Eastern\" from Valentia Island to America 1866... Best regards from Leipzig Michael and Rafael

Thank you to everyone at Parc le Breos for making our first workaway experience a great one! We learned a lot about the running of a B&B and really enjoyed visiting with guests when serving breakfast. The house and property are beautiful and it was fun to tidy the rooms, use the industrial iron, and lay the tables in the fabulous dining room. Mike also enjoyed learning how to French polish the woodwork in the lovely game room. 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. We also enjoyed meeting the other workawayers and sharing their company during our meals and free days (thanks Olive for all the yummy food). Thanks again for a great four weeks to start our workaway adventure. We wish you all the best, Kenlynn & Mike

I stayed in Manasterea Fardea for just over two months. This was my first workaway experience, and I can never thank you enough for the blessing it was to be with you. 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.

We spent a month in the fertile hills of the Arriege with the indefatigable Fryer's; Barry, Virginia, Audrey (and doggies!) and our fellow workawayer, a delight of a young lad, Joe. As Barry said unfortunately the weather was not ideal, a couple of late dumps of snow prevented us from getting our hands as dirty as we would have liked but our month there was very beneficial and enjoyable nonetheless. Barry, Virginia and Audrey are stores of wisdom on an array of matters and the craic is mighty over a few glasses of red wine. Dinner times are the highlight of the day and the food and conversation are both top class. Barry has learned a lot over his interesting life and is more than willing to share his knowledge if the student is ready to learn. We would have loved to stay longer but learned we were \"with child\" and returned home to set up a nest in preparation. Apparently this is the third such incident! We would reccomend a stay chez Fryer wholeheartedly and unreservedly to any prospective workawayers. From Ireland with love, Oz and Ais

First of all, if workaway.info would let us give ten smiley face to a host, we would. Phil and his family are great workaway hosts and our experience with them was an unforgettable one. Phil has numerous tasks and projects going on, that he could do with some help with, so if you are a skilled craftsman or tradesman, a good cook, gardener, tutor etc, any potential workawayer will have plenty of opportunity to get stuck in, as long as you are hard working and conscientious. They are also very accommodating and very quickly we were made to feel like part of the family. We originally applied to stay or five week, but ended up staying for three months. There were enough exciting projects in the pipeline (such as building a swimming pool, installing a wood burning stove and a solar heating system to name a few) for us to stay a lot longer, but we had a travel itch that needed to be scratched. Phil and Shema are more than willing to pass on their DIY and cooking skills/knowledge to those who are interested and serious about it. We did have a great time and we were rewarded with a few trips to beautiful spots in Southern Greece (which included the highly memorable Dog Tourism Day!), so it was very difficult to leave the whole family, their two gorgeous dogs and picturesque village. We can't wait to go back!

I will come back and want to say finally: Come to see.

There were around 8 others whilst I was there, and you get to know people really well and have some great times! On days off you can relax in the lovely rural surroundings or take a day trip to one of the nearby towns, there is always something to do. I couldn't recommend this enough, thank you Debbie and Dan!

Bernie and Isobel were such fantastic hosts! They welcomed us into their beautiful home built into the side of a mountain on their ranch, overlooking the valley and their Bison roaming in the field. We had such a great time working on the ranch, clearing the dead trees for the Bison to have a greater area to graze. We even got to see ten new born babies! On the weekends Bernie and Isobel took us sightseeing to the beautiful Loon Lake which is crystal clear, blue water and then to Nicola Lake with the fantastic views and all around Merritt. We met their wonderful family and some of their friends and even got to watch some rugby at the local school. Our trip was something we will never forget and are so grateful we got to experience!

Thank you so much for having us, we will definitely come and see you again when we are back in Canada one day.

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!

Volunteering with Nadia and Visente was an amazing experience of holistic approach to life and experimental permaculture with deep respect to nature. This talented couple lives in such an harmony and peace of mind that inspired us to do the same. They make a gorgeous art work of recycling glass, really impressive. As they love music, there are heaps of musical instruments to play. We also enjoyed meditation, yoga and to play with Alice. We delighted with the vegetarian meals they prepared. We developed a great respect for the family's life style and child's education values. From the train station takes 10 min drive to the house. There is no public transportation but you can call the house for pick up. After 3 weeks, the only thing we didn't like was to leave this family. We're missing Nadia, Visente and Alice very much!

This is a beautiful place to experience costa rican daily life. During my stay I worked as a mathtutor but got a lot more than that; I found a place to feel like home, visits to san jose and a sugar factory and also got the chance to look at the puriscal festival! I got to learn a lot more about riding and horsecare during my stay and the family really made me feel welcome. We created a holiday, I got to try aikido, made popcorn pie (surprisingly good!) and learned some necessary words in spanish from Abel (gum for example!). You never have to feel alone here with all the horses walking around freely, the dogs and cats with their own personalities and all the awesome volunteers that stay here. I couldn\'t have found a better place to start my travels in costa rica nor a better family to live with and atmosphere to live in. And if you feel like going for a swim, hey, there\'s a waterfall close by! I love this place and would recommend it for everyone; young, old, tall, short, inexperienced and experienced riders, animal lovers, hiking lovers or whatever. A word to describe this place is awesome. Pura vida

Cornelia and Torsten were great hosts! I had my own small room and got a lovely breakfast, lunch and dinner every day (and they prepared nice vegetarian meals for me!). I mainly helped with the horses and some gardening. I also watched the house for one weekend, while both were away. I took walks with the horses and the dogs and enjoyed the rural surroundings and the hospitality for 2 1/2 weeks. I have to say that it could be a bit limited without a car, if you like to go lots of different places in your free time. But if you like to get away from the crowd for a while it is a great place to stay!

Julia is an excellent host – very welcoming and relaxed, with the work well-organised and flexible. It was good fun working on the kitchen redecoration in a team with Kate and other Workawayers and then eating together with Julia, swapping stories, learning new card games and having a glass or two of wine. In my second week, I was able to enjoy the fine late-November weather while putting up new fences in the gardens. My room was luxurious and, with the Chateau’s stunning views over the Canal du Midi and vineyards to the Pyrenees, I found this a great place to stay and relax in my free time. Visiting historic cities like Carcassonne is easy by train. I had a car and took a couple of day trips - to the wild and beautiful Mediterranean coastline just across the border in Spain, and through stunning mountainous countryside less than an hour to the north of Ventenac. Julia creates a great atmosphere at the Chateau. I thoroughly recommend being a volunteer here.

I had a very nice time on Mallorca. Pat and Bob are friendly people and the work isn't bad beacause it's all the time outside. Even when Pat and Bob are not there when thery're off work, you are not alone because of all the friendly animals around. I had the luck that there were some other workawayers at the same time too! I would definetly reccomend this place for anyone.

We stayed with Jerome at his incredible custom built house 30 mins from Granada for just over 2 weeks in April and had such a good time while learning a lot and really feeling like we helped progress his vision and his b&b house project. Our first week was just with Jerome and then in the 2nd week we were joined by 3 other workawayers. We worked 25 hours per week and got to choose our own working days and schedule. Jermone made and introduced us to some excellent foods as well as some local beers and wines. We had a lovely big bedroom and free roam of the house and facilities. The area is breath taking with stunning views out over countless numbers of hills and millions of the Andalucian olive trees. We loved finishing our work day and then heading up to the tree on top of the biggest hill with a glass of wine and taking in the atmosphere. We hold very fond memories of this... Jermone was a great host and made us very very welcome. He gave us some really useful local knowledge for our days off including recommending the towns few bars for cheap beers and free tapas! The work we did for Jermone was massively rewarding and we really connected with the spirit of the building which made us want to contribute to its history. We built the whole terracotta terrace at the front entrance of the building as well as a smaller square patio section just above which is en route to the swimming pool to be used as a chill area overlooking the hills in the distance. We learned to mix cement and lay the tiles in the particular design - this is something we will take with us and for sure use again on future projects. Jermone is a master at measurements and so this made the terrace creation near flawless!!! It was hard for much to go wrong! :) We'd highly recommend going here and contributing to the house project as well as exploring the local area and Granada. Also Alcala La Real is a must see town but don't decide to walk home if you miss the bus! We will definitely return one day as this place made a big impact on us and is for sure a stand out part of our journey through Europe and beyond. Thanks Jerome, it was a pleasure... A bientot, hasta luego...

What to say?? I had such a wonderful time I can't even describe it, but say: Thank you! Patricia and Wim are living their dream, and you can tell that from the very first moment you step into Le Moulin. It's a wonderful place, with such a magical atmosphere, it was really difficult for me to leave. I also learnt very useful skills and met amazing people. It was a wonderful experience, in perfect time and place with the right people. Thank you for all the love!!

I spent 6 weeks living/working at this hostel for Dannie & Dave and from the moment I walked in, it felt like home. Not only did I work with some of the best people in Puerto Viejo/I've ever met, but the hostel is a beautiful piece of jungly paradise. It is certainly a place that attracts some interesting & beautiful people from all around the world, for Dannie & Dave are great friends & bosses alike. I had everything I needed and more...the hardest part was moving on with my journey and saying goodbye.

Ive had such an amazing time working and spending time with Giovanna (Sadly it was just one week). I did some german translation for the website as well as photos and videoclips. Because i was treated so well i tried to give back as much as i could in terms of the work i did. I really had so many awesome experiences and so much fun. Also everyone in Giovannas family treated me like i was one of their own. I consider myself lucky having had the opportunity to be hosted by Giovanna. Again: Thank you for everything! I really hope i will return to Mexico soon!

I worked at the farm for 35 days and I had a lot of good time there! Working with the animals there is simply amazing, the place is great if you love outdoors and wild environment. And the island offers a lot of good trips to nice places. As hosts Maria and John are terrific, I just felt really part of the family and I was so sad to leave! It has been one of the most important experiences of my entire life. P.S. Maria is a very good cook too! :)

I worked on the farm in Alausi for 2 weeks and had a brilliant time there. We would usually work for around 8 hours per day, Monday-Friday with the weekends off. The work was tough but it kept us busy and I helped with a number of tasks including: the rebuilding of a wall, the digging of trenches, the feeding of animals etc. Victor is a really awesome guy who made me feel welcome as soon as I arrived. His cooking skills are top notch which is nice because he was usually the one preparing our meals. I would highly recommend this workaway place to anyone who is travelling in Ecuador. You won't be disappointed! Take care Victor :) Lots of love Michael

From the very first step out of the airport i was made to feel right at home and as welcome as a family member. The entire two months was a learning experience from each of the family members. I will never forget the life lessons and great skills I acquired from this wonderful bunch! Their home on Water Island is a true retreat and sanctuary from the rest of the world. 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

I spent two weeks in this beautiful old house surrounded by nature and mountains. Gabriele is a fantastic host, with many friends and a big family. Every day we would have a feast prepared by his mother and between 3 and 10 people could turn up for lunch. The work is hard but contributing towards the project is very rewarding. I worked no more than 5 hours a day unless I chose too. Plus I was taken to some amazing places by Gabriele in the surrounding areas. He and His family are so welcoming and friendly... I really felt like I could be myself here. Thank You so much and see you soon :)

Kong is the best host and his daughter a real gem. I was able to help him start a hot 18 day compost for his gardening plans as well as a worm farm to produce natural fertilizer. He has so many plans which we turned to perma culture to give ideas for sustainable ventures. I think I tried most of the local delicacies in the five days I was there and saw so many local spots of interest. I highly recommend Kong and his family as a great spot and anyone who loves gardening can be a real help to this budding gardener. Good luck with the sunflowers, Kong.

This was our first workaway experience and what an experience it was... We couldn't have asked for a better host than Ann and her partner Stephen! We were welcomed so warmly. It felt like a home away from home. Our room was extremely comfortable, not to mention spacious. The work was varied and the meals were fantastic. We never went hungry, that's for sure. We had lots of time to explore the area. It was such a relaxing experience and one we'll treasure. The animals were fantastic to play with and have a cuddle with. We miss them very much and can't wait to see them again soon for more cuddles and play time. Thank you so much again for having us for three weeks. We would come back in a heartbeat. Give the animals a hug for us. Love, Jaclyn and Susan P.S. Hope the water pistol is working well!

I stayed with Philippe and his family for 5 weeks. During this time I was very graciously welcomed into his family life and was made to feel very welcome. The room I stayed in was lovely and I had a lot of privacy There was also good access to the internet, so I was able to contact my family regularly. the work was very interesting and rewarding. It was very active and being outside in the sunshine was lovely. Philippe was very patient and although I arrived with very little French I was still able to take a lot from the experience and improve French as well. I would highly recommend this workaway for anyone looking to improve their French. the food was also lovely, everything was fresh and healthy. It was lovely to experience real French cuisine, and enjoy the food with the family. I would highly recommend this workaway. It was everything it promised to be and so much more. Just remember to bring a good work ethic and a willingness to throw yourself into every experience.

Przepraszam, I should have left feedback when I left in April 2012. I stayed in the first farmhouse that Konstancja had, not the new one, but it was a great experience. Good company, good work and a lovely dog. I was very well-looked after and they did not exploit me in any way. The work was sometimes hard, but rewarding and I had the opportunity to try lots of things, such as helping to fit a shower and putting new clay on the walls, as well as the permaculture experiment in the garden. Wolimierz is a sweet village with lots of kind-hearted people and I recommend it to all. Hope to see you again next time I'm in Poland!

Rima and Dennis are EXCELLENT hosts. They welcome you to the family right away and make sure that you experience all there is to do in Motueka. I really wish I could have stayed longer, and if I do return this will be right at the top of my places to stop. A note to any Americans who stay with these lovely people: be adventurous when you cook! Do not fall back on burgers, there is much more to offer from American cuisine.

I had the greatest time imagineable with the Rowbothams. Kirstie, Paul and the kids (and the dogs) were all super friendly and welcoming. There wasn't a single minute where I felt out of place. As a my first workaway experience it surpassed all my expectations. The work was hard, but Kirstie was always there to show me how, and it hardly felt like work at all as it was so relaxing in between the vines. The days went so quickly, and the work was always satisfying - one could see and feel the difference one makes immediately. I'm just sad it went too quickly - I am already planning to go back soon.

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.

This was our first work away experience and we stayed with the Hammets for around 2 and a half months. From the moment we arrived, Bob and Meredith did their best to make us feel at home and provided us with everything we needed. The accommodation is very comfortable (we were up in the barn) and the house is very homely and welcoming. The work was mostly felling trees and chopping rounds to make firewood. It is physical and if you are not physically fit, may take a couple of weeks to get used to, but it is enjoyable and the days go very quickly. Bob and Meredith are very fair, making sure that you always have your time off, we were never worked too hard and were not expected to do anything they wouldn't do themselves. Meredith is AMAZING in the kitchen, cooking up amazing dishes from scratch every night. You will never go hungry, and as mentioned in their profile, you will NOT lose weight! Bob and Meredith happily took us to the nearby towns, giving us plenty of time to explore the area. The both of us have had the most amazing time here, we really feel like part of the family and if it wasn't for us wanting to see the world a bit more, they probably wouldn't have gotten rid of us! The kids are outgoing, friendly and entertaining, and all the animals (4 pigs, 3 cats and 4 dogs) are lovely and have very distinct personalities of their own (and sometimes very smelly farts!). Bob and Meredith are truly AWESOME people, they are so warm, kind and utterly hilarious! The conversations were sometimes so funny we were bent double with laughter (often at Meredith's expense!) If you are somebody who tries to avoid work as much as possible and are unmotivated, please do not waste Bob and Meredith's time. They are lovely people, they feed you well and look after you, so they deserve only the best in return. Also if you try and steal our dog (Oscar) we WILL hunt you down and feed you to the pigs! Haha ;) Seriously though, Thank you so much for a great time and we will most certainly be seeing you again MUAHAHA!!! (and Meredith shall be in a dress :P) All the best X

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!

What to say about this amazing school! I helped at the beginning of the school being built. I helped register kids by walking alongside coco and the owner Mannuel and stopping anyone in the Milagro area with a kid and writing their name down. Then told them about the new school that was being set up. The faces of the kids and when they heard their name and school put together were indescribable. These kids deserve an education. Coco does a great job of providing each volunteer with all the teaching materials they need and advice. Coco has the visionary ideas to never stop help improving Milagro. This school can only grow; and with each new volunteer it does. Mucho amor para esta escuela <3

What a lovely fortnight! During my stay with Larry we restored a fireplace, repointed and decorated some walls and built a bookcase. It was all very enjoyable work and I was encouraged to do things that interested me. I'm not sure I've met anyone else that can foster creativity in quite the same way that Larry does. She has great ideas but also leaves plenty of room for freedom. Larry has a heart of gold and her culinary skills are unmatched. She made sure we had plenty of enjoyable things to do both when working and in our free time. I would love to return in the future if she'll have me!

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!

Chez Marian is a great restaurant to volunteer for! Especially if you have an interest in making friends, marketing/advertising a restaurant and coming up with recipe ideas for the daily menu. Cara is great fun to work with. You'll work hard too. If you choose to work behind the bar, you'll often have a chance to speak French with the locals and customers. You'll learn a lot about waitering too. But you also have local towns and villages to visit. There's a small gym in Saint Seurin, bakers, supermarket, tourist office, etc. Saint Seurin is about 5 minutes by bike too. I hope you choose Chez Marian and thanks to everyone there for giving me such a great experience and friends for life too!

Thanks all! To you prospective workawayers: Anyone who loves the country, or loves the mountains (Garbet is pleasantly situated between both), or gets more pleasure from a hard day's work than from not working at all is advised to check out Barry and Virginia. You work hard, but the work in an ends in itself. Logging, butchering, working in the garden- if this is the stuff you crave you'll have come to the right place. All you need is a little grit, a little vinegar, a will to roll up your sleeves and get sweaty. And even when the weather's nasty - and it was - you can always count on an evening of good company and a good dinner. Thanks again

We spent three weeks with Craig and Annemieke and it was just perfect! They are very nice, open-minded and cheerful people (and they cook so well !! ;) ). They made us feel at home from the start and prepared us a cosy bedroom. We had great evenings with them playing funny games, watching movies or having interesting debates ! It was a pleasure to help them with the lovely garden and the house though we would have liked to have the time to do more, they really diserve it. Nicolas learnt many things with Craig and he enjoyed it much. The big task you will have to do if you come is to throw a stick to the dog every 2 minutes if you dare to throw it once ! (cause she's a kind of hyperactive dog, but very nice ) And if you don't know what to do during your days off, don't worry, Annemieke is a real tourist information center ! Craig is always joking and he can make you laugh in every kind of situation. We really loved our time with you and we wish you to finish your house soon. Hope to see you again one day ! (if Nicolas gets his driving licence aha ! ;) )

I stayed here for just about 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. All three of the guys are funny and charismatic meaning theres never a boring moment in the house. The beeches are amazing and the fresh food even better. They constantly helped me with my spanish and created a really home like atmosphere. The work is hard but its rewarding and they are quite dillegent about working when the weathers cooler. I highly recomend this place to work and live, a true paradise!

I stayed with Joy for 8 nights and really loved the experience. I worked in the hostel with Joy and in the garden with her son Warren, and they were both very kind, flexible, and enjoyable to work with. The hostel is a unique, cozy and friendly place, and I was proud to see what Warren and I accomplished in the garden. I liked it so much I am certain I will return as a worker or as a guest in the future.

Yes, this was my first Workaway experience, and it was wonderful! I stayed with Kirsten and Edvin (and their cat, Frig) for two months. The area is beautiful. You can walk to the beach, the nearby fjord, or take a hike to the mountains! The house is cozzy and warm. Kirsten and Edvin are very open, and well travelled. I learnt a lot from them both, and it was a pleasure working with them. They have a lot to teach! Even though there is always something to do, the atmosphere is still relaxed and calm. I will be sure to visit them again! And absolutely delicious food. Everyday. It was a pleasure staying there!

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.!

Me and Sam spent just under 4 weeks with Eric and Caroline and had a great time with lots of fun experiences and memories to take with us. We felt welcomed right away in their beautiful little hotel in the tiny town of saint donat. Caroline and Eric are generous people and both have a great sense of humor, we enjoyed a some meals together (caroline is a great cook) poker night and a few movies in our spare time, we also enjoyed the company of two dutch workawayers. We got to go on some lovely walks reccommended by Eric (climbing super besse is a must) and walk the two gorgeous dogs (we miss Charlie and Truss!). We experienced our first european snow!! luckily our rooms and inside was always warm and cosy. Work never started before 10am but there was always lots of fun and interesting jobs to do. I enjoyed spending time in the kitchen with Caroline, always laying and joking along the way, well except for the 4kg of chestnuts...i still have nightmares. ;-) I helped out in the restaurant and got a tip from an old french lady! Unheard of! Caroline didn't mind me flirting with the bosnian and turkish customers either ;-p. one of the best days was a special 7 course lunch with 50 locals, we all worked hard but had a lot of fun (apart from the poor australian that ended up being the main course R.I.P ;-), Other tasks involved cleaning, washing, ironing, gardening, which after a couple days it was easy to see what needed doing, so I could go about my day without needing direction. We were also helping Eric renovate one of the hotel rooms, Sam spent a majority of time doing that - painting, plastering, electrical work, sanding etc and enjoyed being able to do some physical work after lots of travelling. We would recommend working with Eric and Caroline to anyone, we will miss them and their beautiful piece of French paradise. Ps thanks for the ride to Paris! And have the best time in America :-) Ella and Sam

We have been volunteering in India for 3 months, and this is most definitely one of the best experiences we have had thus far! The first few days were spent at Desert Adventure Camp near Jaisalmer. We did a little bit of cleaning and cooking in exchange for one of the luxury tents and a camel ride. The rest of our time was spent at the Shri Ram hotel in Bikaner. Here, along with another volunteer, we set to repainting the front of the hotel. Just as we left one volunteer was preparing to paint a traditional Indian style mural on the wall. This is a pretty big project, and I'm sure any help will be appreciated. If you are an artistic type, this could be a good place for you to visit! Yogi, Vicky and everyone else are all incredibly welcoming to their volunteers. The work is relaxed and enjoyable, and the traditional food incredible. Highly recommended!

Lisa and Julian were our first workaway experience and we really enjoyed our time with them. We spent in their house 5 nice weeks and we couldn't imagine better hosts! Lisa is excellent cook and we had a lot of fun during our dinners with them. Julian knows all building tricks and is always ready to give an advice. They also took us if they were going out so we discovered a lot of new places thanks to them. We can strongly recommend this family.

My work away experience here was fabulous. My experience here in GENERAL was fabulous. Salem is a great host, and he manages to reel in only the best guests to stay at his hostel. Its like a big family there. I was really sick for about half my stay and everyone took such good care of me! The work is generally super easy. There are almost always several workawayers, so you'll be tag-teaming the cleaning with them, and it gets done so fast! I would highly recommend going to stay with Salem in Mazatlan, and going to Playa Bruja, and stuffing your face with tacos, and all the other amazing things that Mazatlan has to offer.

We hope to be back again very soon but had the best experience and it would recommend it to anyone. :)

Simply put: The best Workaway experience I could have asked for. My friend and I decided that this would be the 1st stop on a new life's journey... we didn't know what to expect but to go by the references left by other Workawayers. And they are all true and accurate!!! On arrival we were greeted with the warmest smile, then driving through the winding roads lined with chestnut trees and passing ancient towns untouched by time we arrived at accommodation we could have only dreamed of and eventually had one of the most delicious meals ever.... and then it just got better day by day! Pat and Rob are truly exceptional humanoids, big beings, awake, hospitable, friendly beyond compare and just awesome! I will definitely make an effort to be back in 2013 to explore the rest of the surrounding areas and have more delicious cheese, wine and laughter with these two great people. Constantly I felt we were in a sate of 'exchange in abundance' as once we saw the three bedroom house we would stay in (on our own) we worked as hard as we could... then we were fed exceptional food and decided we wanted to impress further and so it went ... the more we were stunned with Pat and Robs push to make us feel as comfortable and as fed as possible we pushed to get more done... the work was rewarding and I learnt a lot. Pat and Rob go out of their way to ensure that everything is as best as it can be!! I shall be in contact with them personally and hope to develop and greater business relationship with them. I thank you both for the stay here as it was physically and mentally refreshing. My inspiration is back and working solidly. Vic

it's a place where you dont want to miss on your workaway planner. Great, comfortable area. nicest guest cabin ive ever seen since being a couchsurfer and workawayer. very close to Yuba River state park. feel free to dive yourself into the crystal clear river every afternoon. Naomi is a great cook, and you will learn some useful things from Jamie on the garden. But most importantly they will be so willing and happy to share with you the philosophy and practice of Yoga; the time spent on chatting with them was priceless.

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.

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

A crew here is very kind and made me feel comfortable, like a part of a team from the beginning. The whole project is well-made and its results are obvious and beautiful! Even though work sometimes took longer than expected, there could be always time found to take a bike and explore lovely french countryside around! It can be also a nice language experience, either French and English. This project is a good match for everyone not too difficult to accommodate but willing to meet any kind of demand in exchange to great food and nice conversations. Thank you for accepting me, guys, and hope to see the results of your effort one day!

This was my first work away and it was a great experience! The accommodation and food were amazing, way above expectations and the work was easy and fun. Light cleaning in the morning and always helping out at the bar and in the kitchen with dishes and desserts etc. Sometimes odd jobs like painting designs on pots, cleaning the deep fryer or building a ladder for the dock! Meliza who you work with most of the time is more than great and Kipp, the owner is super kind as well. Zeus, the giant puppy is adorable and always keeps you entertained. You can go kayaking or take a taxi to town and explore there and Kipp is flexible if you have something specific you want to do. Overall, it was absolutely worth while. I miss you guys!

And I want to say few words about work! I like, Cathy is so creative and she has lots of ideas and stuff to do for you, but in the same way, she gives you a freedom express yourself, to wake up your creativity and to make something good by hands!

The Yollands gave us a great workaway experience. From the beginning they made us feel like a part of the family. And also the accomodation in the caravan was, especially in summer, very comfortable. We did all kind of work around the house and fields (building a wall, gardening, fencing for the sheep...) which we enjoyed doing. They helped us explore the nice bastille towns in the are and in the evening they took us with them to barbecues. If you are looking for a very nice family in rural france and dont mind it being a bit messy this is the place to go.

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. :-)
