I had a great week working with Delboy and everyone at Trotters. It is a very relaxed friendly environment and it's a very good company. We were treated extremely well and got taken into the desert for safaris and sunsets,what a great place to work! If you have good computer skills its a bonus as there are things on the website they need help with as well as emails etc.

This month the huskies was my first workaway experience and an awesome one. It was in the middle of the nature and taking care of the dogs was a real pleasure, it was hard to leave then! I feel so lucky and thanksful to Trine for this experience. Hope to go back there again one day and i wish the team all the best

We have just spent a month and a half working at the hostel. We had a great time, the work was not hard, the schedule was very flexible, and we had very valuable experiences. Cristian and Melania are excellent hosts and working with them was easy, it was a very good environment with great communication. This was our first workaway experience, and we absolutely recommend other workawayers to work here.

been contacting the lunds for a last minute work-awaying opportunity. They responded fast. Spent 2 weeks with them, and i was welcome to be part of the family. I got the chance to help them out and are rewarded with the horse ridding lesson from them. :) don't worry if you are not a good cook, since when you leave their place you will definitely increase your cooking skill. Their animals were also human friendly. I recommend those who are willing to work but yet enjoy some fun time to stay with the lund. :D

The Pilgrims are amazing! I had such a wonderful time with them and didn't want to leave. The work was interesting as we did every day something else. And they didn't hesitate to go to the new neighbour as ask if I can help there with milking the cows. I also enjoyed visiting their friends and going to the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve. But at the end it is the family who made me have such a good time and I am looking forward to see them again!

I have spent 3 weeks athere and I wish I could stay longer ! This farm is an incredible place. I haven't enough word to explain how great the kelly family is. Denise, Vincent, their son and friends (not forgetting Nanny) make you feel confortable like you are at your home. Denise is always here to listen to you. Ske looked after me and make sure I was enjoying myself (and of course I was) Vincent answered at all my « many » questions ;) I learnt a lot of things with him and had a great time. So I enjoyed every second I spent there. Every day I had at the farm was unique. There is always something to be done and you never get bored. After feeding all the different animals, you can also have a walk with their husky or ride their horses (and get a lesson how to do it :) I'm lucky because we have a nice weather so Vincent cooked wonderful BBQ and I had some nice evening, listening music and drink a beer around nice people. The atmosphere between helpers is great. I had such a great experience and If you get the chance to visit, jump on it. I hope to go back there soon as possible.

Our first workaway, couldnt have been a better experience. Ros made us feel at home straight away and was a lovely host. Work wasnt too strenuous, cutting some logs, painting various areas and getting pool ready for summer. There was also some light housework and looking after the lovely two dogs, which wasnt really work but a good excuse for a walk. Ayamonte is a beautiful town with lots of interesting places to visit in the area

We had such a wonderful time, we stayed for one month in October for our first Workaway trip and did not want to leave at the end! the farm is in picture perfect surroundings and Elisa Vincenzo Tommi and Viola are an extremely welcoming and beautiful family and it was a joy to stay with them. The work was great we very much enjoyed being out in the sunshine picking avocados and olives and helping in the vegetable garden, there are a lot of things to do so there's always much to choose from! Elisas cooking is unbeatable. and we definitely made the most of it! and we tried our hardest to learn some italian from very patient teachers. The children are fantastic, it took a couple of weeks for them to come around, but once they started to play.. we were (quite happily) used as climbing frames for the rest of our time on the farm. a wonderful experience, so wonderful in fact that we can't wait to go back again in a few weeks! to meet baby number three.... and eat up all the food again! THANKYOU!

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!

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!

Being a beginner volunteer I can\'t compare this place to my previous volunteering, but I am sure, that it was the perfect place for me to start this activity. All conditions were very good for me. The family is very kind and helpful, the jobs are various and interesting, the accommodation is comfortable, the food is like at first class. The other volunteers also helped me a lot in my English. Thank you for everybody. You always can talk about interesting people about new and different topics,learn new and new jobs and get experiences in very different areas. The sightseeing, the beach, the visiting of the local inn, the woolfest, the happy evening meals, the barbecues, the celebrating Kathy\'s birthday, the \\"sheep battles\\", the road construction, the hay bales were unforgettable for me. Thank you for the experience in tractor driving, sheep shearing, some joinery work, car driving on the left hand side. In one word: I am very grateful for your great help and I can recommend this place for any other volunteers. Thank you for everybody, again. Laszlo

And it was really interesting to experience the way of family life with the two \\"cude-chaotic\\" kids - different to my life in Germany, but nevertheless with many common points and lots of things to learn! Thank you for this nice experience and thank you for welcoming me so warm and kindly!!!

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.

Highly recommended place to stay at! Working there was fun and very enjoyable, never too hard ;) What is more, there were many different things to learn and experience apart from farm work as the hosts made sure that my stay is as diverse and pleasant as possible  Even though I have experienced a little bit of culture shock at the beginning , it passed away quickly as I got to know all the very nice people in the community . I am very grateful for the experience.

I stayed here for two months from the end of January to the end of March. With this being my first Workaway place I was nervous as hell! That nervousness dissipated completely after my first day there. The family are warm, friendly and often hilarious. They understand that it takes time to get used to a new type of work and don’t put any pressure on you, nurturing instead of criticizing. And it pays off because you end up wanting to do a good job for them. The food is outstanding, the kids are great and if you’re a dog fan you’ll fall in love with Oscar. I felt welcomed as part of a family and hope that I’ll stay in touch through the years. Really, the best part of Workaway is about the people you meet and I like to think I made some friends rather than just a host.

We enjoyed our time spent with the Knight family at the farm, we learnt a lot during our stay, especially from the kids who are a very smart bunch. The whole family were very welcoming, we chose to sleep in our camper during our stay (as it was our first attempt at micro living which we plan to do full time) though we were invited to sleep within the lovely family home and Nicola ensured we remained comfortable during our nights in the camper throughout our stay. We admire the families decision to escape to the country and there determination to live a greener sustainable self sufficient life. Our stay with the Knight family gave us plenty of food for thought (as well as for our bellies). We would recommend working away at this farm to everyone (except perhaps vegetarians) ;-) Thanks again for having us we very much appreciated the experiance

I had a wonderful two weeks here, and only wish I could have stayed longer. From our first contact, Ruth and Walter have been the most responsive, welcoming hosts. I could not have asked for a better way to experience Margaret River. Ruth and Walter were incredibly communicative and easy to work with. Their home is beautiful, comfortable, and filled with delicious food. The children and animals are adorable, and the work is very reasonable. You will have plenty of time to experience Margaret River, the nearby beach, and the lovely countryside around the house. It was a particular thrill for me to see wild kangaroos on my walks in the bush! I would be happy to visit this family again, and hope to do so soon. Any Workawayer would be lucky to stay here!

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

I spent 3 lovely weeks with the family in February. Despite the cold weather and snow, I really enjoyed this amazing place, the warm and welcoming family, and the fantastic horses. This was my first workaway experience, and I feel really lucky to have found such a good place - beginner's luck I suppose! The work was not difficult; the everyday chores of course involved feeding and stable routines, and some mucking out. The beautiful old purpose-built stable barn is all indoor so you are protected from the elements, which makes the work a lot easier! There are 20 horses, including 4 ponies, 2 foals and the gorgeous Red Baron. They are all totally used to people and being handled, so there it is never scary to be around them. On some days I was able to ride, and tried several different horses while I was there. As a rather rusty rider who hasn't really ridden for almost 10 years, I also benefitted from a much-needed riding lesson from Jasmina, an excellent young instructor who understands the Welsh Cob mentality! I travelled with Katharina to observe a couple of very interesting riding lessons, and also to a farrier school. I also helped a little with some of the lessons, grooming the horses or just being available if anyone needed any help. There is such a lot you can learn from Katharina and her establishment about horses, horse-care and riding. A highlight for me was doing the free-jumping with the horses in the indoor arena! Aside from the horsey stuff, the family really included me in many social activities, which is how I discovered some crazy German culture that I had never heard of before, such as Fasching! My accommodation was in a lovely private room overlooking the horses' field, with internet access and a private bathroom. Meals were eaten together with whoever was in the house, normally prepared by Katharina who is a very good cook! I had lots of time for myself and was never over-worked. It was easy to fit into the routine, to learn what I had to do, and I was never confused about what was expected of me. Katharina and her family have hosted many volunteers and interns over the years, so everything continues very smoothly with the arrival and departure of volunteers. My one regret about my time here is that I didn't speak any German. It really is NOT essential to speak German, as all the family speak excellent English, but it would definitely be an advantage and would have allowed me to contribute more e.g. with riding pupils. However, if you don't speak German, don't let that put you off as you can still have a really amazing time, and pick up a few words of German along the way! I would highly recommend this workaway host to anybody interested in working around horses, and/or who wants a genuine experience of true German culture. I had a brilliant time, and hope to return in the future, perhaps with some enhanced German language skills!

Ian and I stayed with Pompilio and Signora Rosa for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The area, Corese Terra, is beautiful and we enjoyed walking and biking around the countryside. Also, it is an hour outside of Rome with several buses daily which enabled us to see everything we wanted to, and more. Pompilio even brought us to a political rally; it was great to experience history in the making. Pompilio is extremely kind and generous and made his home ours. Signora Rosa is an excellent cook, we certainly looked forward to lunch everyday! They were also very patient with us, as we only know very little Italian, and even helped us quite a bit with learning. They both are legitimately great people who we enjoyed passing time with. We are so thankful for everything and highly reccomend anyone who can, stay with them!

The daily tasks were variable from painting to wood chopping which were never tiring. The place was unique even in a cloudy November and had enough times to enjoy the autumn and to explore the sorroundings by riding a bike. To be recorded: In my time in Nakkeboelle, there were three nice person called Kristine, Katja and Panos who made my time memorable.

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

I don't know where to begin when thinking about describing the last month, but I surely know that I absolutely loved staying with Helen, Ian, George and Lily and that I had such a wonderful time! Helen and Ian are great and friendly people. They are inspiring and interesting characters who got lots of stories to tell and like to share so much. Really, I couldn't feel more comfortable in their company. Plus they have two lovely children: Lily and George are uncomplicated and beautiful kids and got tons of fantasy and energy so it never got boring around them. It wasn't very hard for me to feel like home in my caravan as it offered everything that I needed (even a TV so I could watch great movies that Helen recommended!) and even though I lived there in a cold month like March it never got too cold. The work I had to do was nice and fair as well. I often worked in the two polytunnels planting vegetables or flowers- Ian taught me for instance some interesting facts about the potato-planting and showed me so much other stuff, I really appreciate that. Feeding the animals, spackle the wall, planting, chopping wood, tidying up the yard...I enjoyed all that and I'm a bit upset that I won't be able to see all the vegetable coming out and that I can't try them! Next to that I also had a good time when Ian and Helen showed me around the beauty of Ireland several of times: I saw the beach, waterfalls, nice little towns and so much more. It was an adventure! The place where you guys live in is real magic and I hope I can be back one day, but I'd also love to welcome you in Germany sometime. Anyway, I hope to see you again...I will be back when your house is ready at the latest, because I'd be so curious how everything looks like by then :) Thank you again for the great time you gave me, remembering my time in Ireland will always be a big pleasure for me!

I had only 10 days for my first workaway experience but these days were just unique!!!!!!!!!!! All the time with Roger, Goaty, Veejay and the others was great! We had a lot of fun and it was always interesting to discover the english/french way ;) The work was straight and not so hard because there were no guest when I was there. I will never forget all the things which I have learned and I also enjoyed the sights (Mont St. Michel, hippodrome, Granville, the market in Villedieu,...) that Roger showed me. I will come back and want to say finally: Come to see.

Such a great experience staying with Ann, Mick, Rowen and Declan. The family is incredibly warm and generous. We learned so much about the area, working with animals and gardening. The food was amazing and the conversations very interesting. We enjoyed every minute. Thank you for having us.

My boyfriend and I stayed with Vera, Arnd, Anna & Louisa this past May for 3 and a half weeks (our first workaway experience), and I wish we could have stayed the entire summer! Time went by so quickly on the farm, and I am in complete agreeance with Vera that there are time holes that come and eat up the days, even though the sun sets after 10pm : ) We immediately felt welcomed and apart of the family life. We did a variety of things from cooking to wood construction & planting. The farm is beautiful and there were often other people working with us on different projects. We made it a habit to go to town on the regular as it was so easy to bike and take the train in less than a half hour. Vera and Arnd are so genuinely kind and each of them has a interesting outlook on life. Anna & Louisa became our good friends, even though they are only 6 & 9. We learned so much from them. It doesn\'t get much better than this workaway experience. You\'d be hardpressed to find something better!

I had such an amazing time at here. The people, both staff and guests, the amazing veggie food cooked by the amazing chef Jamie and he does laughter yoga as well (what a blast!!), the best yoga with Lely and Arantza in an open air studio (best ever!!), bad-ass fun doing samba reggae with Olga (not to mention she cooks amazing food as well), the 2 most fun and respectable managers- Nicola & Charlotte, our \'on top of it before you can blink\' aka superman creative maintenance guy Alistair and our fairy Louise who is faster than a bullet cleaning. 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. I already miss it and would go back in a second. Highly recommend to anyone lucky enough to spend time here. Thank you Rosie and Jonji for allowing me to be a part of the fam. One love and much love to my beautiful family here.

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.

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!

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!

Alessandra and Massimo are wonderful people, and their home is just as wonderful too! I stayed for a month and it was great to share their company and work together. You can tell from the beginning that they are open, relaxed and friendly, and their home is always open to friends and family, and guests for the B&B. It's kind of like everything you'd imagine in a rural farmhouse, with modern amenities as well. There's always something to do, and you take away as much as you put into it; mainly I spent my time gardening, translating and helping with housework. But they are both very creative, so it's the perfect place for the more creatively inclined. They also travel a lot... I guess I can just summarise and say that they are interesting to get to know :) I really hope you continue to do this sort of thing in the future! I enjoyed it very much and I think other people would too. I would recommend it to anyone who is open and willing to learn new things. The landscape and Sassello are lovely, and if you want to see more, it's no problem to get a bus (or lift with one of them) to Savona and from there you can go travel anywhere you want to with the train. Genoa, Cinque Terre, the Italian Riviera or Turin aren't too far! Savona's nice too, also for a splash in the sea. I wish you the best of luck with il bimbo and Cascina Granbego! Maybe I can come again in the end :) Simon P.S. It must be mentioned that Settembre (the dog) is the most beautiful dog in the world :D

We couldn't be happier that we chose to stay with Gill and Alan for our first workaway experience. We were warmly welcomed and quickly felt like part of the family. Gill is an excellent cook and in the whole month we stayed, we hardly had the same meal twice, which was quite amazing! With all the delicious cakes Gill makes, you definitely won't go hungry here! Alan was happy to tell us all about the history of the kiln and the surrounding area and we had many interesting conversations around the dinner table. The work was sometimes physical but always fair and varied, and we were never pushed too hard. They always drove us to nearby towns at weekends so we could do some sightseeing... and rescued us when we got a flat bicycle tire! We fell in love with Molly the dog, and Fudge and Snowy the cats, we miss them already! We would recommend them to anyone and we wish them all the best in their future projects! Anna and Martin =)

WOW! I have just come back to home now from this farm after three weeks and it was absolutely breathtaking not only because of the variety of animals (exotic and also typical for a farm in France ) but mainly because of Karan´s family! They treated me like a family member. I have lived in some families in England but this family in France was the greatest in many aspects and I am not exaggerating at all. I particularly admire Karan, she seems to have infinite patience for virtually everything ( with me- I was sometimes very clumsy, and not very smart with DIY, with children, dogs, animals and with house problems such as a broken dishwasher, problem with a sink, et cetera) The big surprise for me since beginning was that her children have got a new-found respect for volunteers. ( probably the countryside in Burgundy, healthy environment, delicious food and nice sleep makes people better. ) Food was absolutely excelent, we ate like a lords – Karan´s excelent pasta, pork dishes, and luxurious summer picnics next to a nearby lake or just under a farm´s pergola – I was feeling sometimes if I really deserve such a big dinner when we did not work a lot, in summer we ate outside with a spectacular view of the near village with typical french boulangerie. Sleeping: You have to experience sleeping in the countryside- It was the best sleeping I have ever had and I did have neither my pillow nor my own mattress – quiet place, full of stars, moon and your room in totally dark – I have now a new dream! Type of work : First days I was very sad we worked only very little and with a big breakfast, dinners I thought I am just a parasite on a farm :). It took time to me to realize that the work on the farm is a lot but you have to work on your own cooperative initiative and help where you can – and I am sure that every person in the world can help there. One day I weeded, another day repaired bikes or building with another volunteer a pergola, watering, feeding animals The family is very kind to everyone – one example : they gave a bike to a one great volunteer for traveling throughout France. There are always someone new, volunteers, travelers, visitors for seeing animals, students who Karan teaches, children´s friends. I could not have better time – thank you very much indeed Karan, Joseph, Jacob, Emilie, Callum, Sherlock, Gaya, Aggy, The Jacks, Alex, Ettiene, :D!

Laura: the 10 days we lived at Barranconi were just wonderful and I felt very welcome from the beginning. The three were the best hosts i can imagine for my first workaway experience, with their openhearted characters. Also living in the natural surrounding and with the dogs, cats (specially Schnupp ;)) and the horses did really good to me. I enjoyed every evening eating together and the talks, also the work was fun. I am more than thankful for these awesome days and I already miss it so I hope to come back sometime :) Max: Christoph is the most friendly and tolerant host you can imagine. The dinners with him and his family were a wonderful opportunity to have some interesting conversations about different lifestyles. The work was easy and we could decide on our own when to work, and when to drive to the beach ;-). Also the flat was quite comfortable, so we really had to left a second home when we got to go on. Stay with them, work for them, have fun with them, you won't regret it.

The location is beautiful with a nearby lake for swimming and a picturesque rural town.

Staying with Arun in Baluti village was a gem of an experience. Arun may be 63, but he is young at heart and wonderful company. He picked me up from the town center of Kotabagh and we ascended up lush green hills until we reached his cottage. Baluti village is a fresh breath of air from all the chaos and crowds of Indian cities. Friendly villagers smiled and waved whenever I would meander through the mountains to explore. There are a lot of activities to do as well. During my stay, Arun arranged a local villager to guide me through the Sitibani forest reserve on a horse. The forest was silent and pristine and overlooked the hillside villages of the area. We stopped at a hidden temple and conversed with other villagers while drinking chai. Another day, Arun’s helper Puran and I went for a 3 hour hike up the mountains to the Devi Temple. The hike was exhausting but the views at the top were spectacular. Other days, I simply read in the sunshine and enjoyed the views from Arun’s cottage. Arun told me how many guests end up staying weeks at a time, and it’s no surprise why. Baluti provides a calmness that is hard to find when bouncing from one backpackers place to another. Arun’s helper Puran sells liquor as well for rowdy nights. You can find everything here… Be it a quiet retreat, or fun-filled night… or a bit of both. Contact Arun, staying at his cottage has been my best travel decision in India thus far.

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 !

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.

Barney and Sina are great hosts!!! I had an amazing time staying in El Palmar with them, lovely Dylan, their friends and other workawayers :) They are very welcoming and lovely people. We had great food every day! The work was varied and I really enjoyed painting and being creative, a great experience. I wish them lots of success for the future and I hope to go back again and work in beautiful El Palmar at Mambo beach house! Barney and Sina, thank you so much for welcoming me into your lovely home xx

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!

I had a really good time at the castle. Ingrid and Jimmy are just amazing. Living in the castle is kind of like living in a different world and I can definitely say it does have healing powers. If you are looking for an extraodinary experience and are not afraid of work or ghosts its the perfect place for you! There is always a lot of work do be done but I did it with joy. Looking forward to seeing you again some time. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!

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!:-)

I had almost two weeks helping Luisa and John and was an unforgettable experience. They are very friendly hosts, friendly, welcoming and above all very human. They had a lot of willingness to help or advise me on anything (go look, doubts bus or train schedules, tips to know the best of the area) The place is very nice greenery, mountains, peace, to spend time in tranquility and good company. Being at home I encountered Girona is a small but beautiful and with all the amenities of a large city. Trip also Cerbere (France), by train is very close and cheap. I'm ... looking forward to returning!

Well! Where to start! What a fantastic first workaway experience! We came out of season so only had 2 housemates (Ruth and Christian, you little legends you! =)) and were mostly helping with cleaning and gardening jobs which we both enjoyed immensely, the work is fair and flies by. We got a chance to look after the birds, the adorable cats and Cassis the sheep and took it in turns to cook each day which was great as we now know some delicious vegan and veggie recipes which we wouldn't otherwise. We have had such fun from endless games of Articulate to our wonderful 'Christmas Day' and have loved getting to know everyone. Debbie and Dan are brilliant hosts, kind, generous and fair and we would highly recommend them to anyone! We will definitely be returning one day and can't wait to re-visit Ticheville and it's crazy bells! hehe! Big love! xxxx

I highly recommand this workaway possibility. Guiselle and Hans Jürgen are wonderful people living in an absolutely beautiful spot. During the whole stay I never felt under pressure and could do the duties with calmness. I mainly helped Hans Jürgen in the garden and Guiselle in the kitchen. It's a place out in the middle of nowhere, a place surrounded by wild nature where one can really reload energies. I never felt like a worker, it was more a giving and taking and a lot of nice, funny and interesting interaction and learning from each other. Always enough to eat :) Fresh and healthy food. The workawayer's bedroom is amazing (large and beautiful). Plenty of good books available. Will be back for sure one day!

Thanks Donna and Dennis for a fun-packed week...well almost a week. Gina loved feeding the cows in the morning and Len really enjoyed fixing/repairing things around the farm. We were part of a special event...the St. Paddy's Day/Giant Pumpkin Party/Contest where we got to meet and mix with the local folks. Four-year-old Campbell was so proud to be the winner of the event! Gina was proud too that she got to prepare American Apple Pie for dessert which received rave reviews. Donna cheerfully bussed us around and made sure we got to our Hobbiton Tour on time. Thanks, Donna! We were served up delicious dinners which were always accompanied with a glass of wine. But I think our favorite was the Nacho Nite. Thanks, Dennis!

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.

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

The accommodation i was provided was brilliant, the area was breath taking. The work was very relaxed and found myself in such good spirits all the time. Tried my hand at a few DIY projects but found myself better for painting, very therapeutic in such an amazing place. The food prepared for me was always wonderful with such a variety, i also had the pleasure of joining Bogdan and his friends for a night out on the town on a few occasions and I'm certain ill be staying in touch with all the lads! We had dinner at a few different places but i must admit they did not compare to Luigis cooking! I would recommend this experience to anyone and everyone as i cannot wait to see the whole family again!!! And dont forget to show Beano lots of love!

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!

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

I was fed like a king in the restaurant, and the work was very reasonable and enjoyable. This workaway was great for getting my fitness up as the work was always outdoors and often involved climbling from one end of the campsite to the other. :) Access to the bikes also meant i made the most of my free time, enjoying the beautiful winding roads.

Workawaying with Carsten was a wonderful experience for a pair of first-time workawayers! He is definitely one of the nicest and most energetic people we've ever met! Working with the boat was really fun to do and we may have even gotten a little addicted to it (now we've gotten it into our heads to build our own boat). Living with the other workawayers couldn't have been better (mice hunting and all night poker games included) and the little adventures we embarked on together like bow and arrow shooting or canoing just topped off a wonderful stay. We would really like to get back there someday and help finish it! We wish him godspeed with the completion of the cat and hope he doesn't run out of workawayers to help him. He surely knows how to motivate his crew, going forward as an example with his own passion. He will be as good a captain as he is a boatbuilder. Best wishes, Sandra & Thomas

Staying with Zane and Andis for 3 weeks has been my first workaway experience and it was plain awesome! They made me feel like being part of the family since the very beginning, therefore I felt definitely at home there. Work wasn't too hard as well. We (the girls) did a lot of gardening, painting and housekeeping, but there was always time for a tea break (or juice break as it got warmer ;), because as they said “This isn't a workcamp, we don't want you to die out there.” :) I learned quite a lot and they were really patient explaining how the work should be done. Zane and Andis are also very flexible, when it comes to working hours. When we had plans to go to Riga or to make a trip, it hasn't been a problem at all. Further, Zane provided lovely dishes for lunch and dinner almost every day and sometimes my all time favourite Latvian dessert “Kārums”! After-work hours were also always lots of fun - doing canoeing and boat-trips, playing card games or having movie nights! Further, I enjoyed our barbecues with their family and friends and I got really addicted to playing croquet! I basically told everyone in Germany about that! Love it! So it got never boring at all! Those 3 weeks passed by so quickly and it was kinda hard for me to say goodbye. In Zane and Andis you'll find humorous, gentle, kind and easy-going hosts and it was surely great staying with you! Miss u all! xxx PS.: While staying with them, you should absolutely sleep at least one night in the floating cottages!

If you decide to Workaway for Luisa and Joan, you are sure to be treated very well, have a comfy bed to sleep in, a lovely house to rest and work in, plenty of nice food to eat and lots of laughs. Luisa is a real Catalan character and loves to live life, laugh and receives her workawayers with a positive attitude and is generous in spirit and warmth. She enjoys company and is very eager to spend time with her guests, be it at dinner time or at the beach. Thanks again for everything Luisa and Joan. :) :)

My experience was really great! It was my first Workaway, and I enjoyed it a lot! I knew a lot of wonderful people, others worksawayers and staff. The work is organized everyday, and It is an opportunity to be part of this project. A workaway highly recommended. Workawayers, staff and directors are very nice! Thanks!!!!
