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...

There are no words that can truly give Roxane and company enough credit for the beautiful, inviting environment they have created nestled in the mid-Pyrenees. Cassaet (the house) was truly an oasis-in-progress for us and we couldn't be prouder to have been a small part of its renovations. It was the best first workaway experience than either of us could have imagined. We did a random assortment of tasks while we were there, from cooking to painting to water-blasting to feeding the chicken. Roxane was a kind and flexible boss, always a pleasure to work with! Everyone who lives at this house is a fantastic cook in their own way -- whether it was a quick soup or delicious Thai something or handpicked nettle soup, every meal was incredibly delicious and a great bonding eperience. Thanks, guys, for being so on board with our culture -fusion Thanksgiving. Roxane herself is a giving, understanding, artistic woman with an easygoing disposition that makes you immediately feel welcome and like part of her family Gavin and Fabian both contributed wisdom and skills of their own, as well: we absorbed a lot about life and ourselves by listening and learning here. We didn't want to leave at all, but we'll be sure to meet somewhere in the world again... maybe Thailand. :) Thanks for everything.

Could I say twice excellent ?here are not enough smiles, when I am thinking about this place )))) One week after I left Hawaii, and I miss guys so much!!!! Cathy and Robert are so nice, friendly and excellent hosts! They have lots of funny stories for you, recommendation where you can go and what to do for fun, even extra snorkeling stuff, and towel (for traveler like me, it was important) Ah, that tasty potluck diners with neighbors (guys, thank you for food, you know what I mean ;) and extra bonus with Mike's sweets to make you feel like you have got a new home full of friends in Paradise!!! (you will get, what I mean, when you come)))) I love the nature, and the house with color of ocean waves, you can see and feel Hawaiian spirit everywhere, in little details of interior, in garden with coconut trees and beautiful flowers around, you can feel Hawaii through food, words, which I am pretty sure guys will teach you to say! 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! I like we are now friends on facebook, and hope your page soon will be full of pictures and interesting stories from guys around the world! hugs! hugs!hugs!!!

This was our first Workaway experience and it exceeded all of our expectations. Jaana, Seppo and the family made us feel relaxed and very at home as soon as we arrived at Korvala. The work with the Huskies is very hands on from feeding, walking, training and playing with them. We learned a lot about the Finnish way of life and the husky way of life. The location is stunning and we highly recommend this experience to anyone who has a genuine interest the Huskies and the outdoors. Best wishes Richard and Suzanne.

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.

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 had a really wonderful week with Francesco and Robert. They were warm and super hospitable hosts and I hope to see them in NZ as soon as they've won the lottery. (Fingers crossed) I stayed in a beautiful loft room in the attic and was treated to so much delicious food. Francesco was eager to show me local sights like the Basilica in Tolentino, but even more enjoyable than that was being a part of their lives for a week, doing ordinary things like grocery shopping and getting my haircut with Francesco's hairdreser (which Francesco not only arranged for me but accompanied me too as well). They also invited me to apertivi, lunches and dinners with their lovely friends. The work was generally between 3 and 5 hours a day, usually a couple of hours before lunch and a couple of hours after (though this would change depending on the season). I won't go on, because I agree with the things Michael and Matt have said. Just to sum up, I absolutely recommend Robert and Francesco as hosts, especially if you are social, like good food and enjoy beautiful landscape. Wishing you both all the best for the \"inferno\" ahead! x

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!

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!

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

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

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

Ashburton is a quite village in the Devon countryside, there are a lot of path and hills where you can walk with John's pet Tallullah, the most lovely dog I've ever meet. And if sometimes you need the town life you can easily join the towns of Plymouth and Exeter. Thank you Susan and John.

I 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

We stayed here for 2 weeks,with 58 very sweet dogs and truly amazing staff.It's been hard,dirty work,but when you have all these lovely dogs around it doesnt really matter.We repaired a lot of the fences so all the dogs can now walk and play free outside of cages,will not be lock up in whole day anymore.We loved every single day we spent working and caring for dogs .We were leaving that place in tears and heartbroken.Thanks for amazing experience to all staff ..we will be back :)

Jeff and Dawn are beyond great. When you first arrive, no matter where you are from, they minimize the number of people you meet, tell you to relax, and grab something to eat if you need it. Accommodating....is the best word to describe them. Three squares a day (though sometimes you work so hard lunch can go a little late :)). And no hidden costs like laundry or food. Just a hard working, polite, and fantastic couple. The work. You get to work with great horses and get free natural Parelli horsemanship training. And they will never ask you to do something you are uncomfortable with. You get to work with horses as much as you want and in the afternoon you can practice or help Jeff with some home improvement projects (fencing, wall building, and concrete laying). Beyond the beautiful countryside Jeff and Dawn will take you to their friends on a few outings a week. Or you can go down the road and talk to Rafi to practice your Spanish. Truly and unforgettable experience and I would recommend it to any person who wants to learn more about horses.

I had a chance to spend a week with Talley and get to know her lifestyle and friends. She is very kind and friendly. I helped her in the garden and with some housework and we enjoyed the time together. Talley is a great guide. She showed me the interesting places in Wiesbaden and Mainz. We also visited the impro-theater and open-air cinema. Thank you! I would love to visit you again sometimes. Jana

Totally cool experience. Mona and Stefan are wonderful people. It´s really nice to sit and have a drink with them. Their restaurant is fantastic. I always looked forward to the meals. The work is tough sometimes but really rewarding. And the landscape is unbelievably beautiful. It´s really something to step out and look at it every day. Thanks Mona and Stefan!!

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

I had a wonderful experience living and working with Paul and Bianca and their animals for 3 weeks. As soon as I arrived I was impressed by the beautiful countryside, especially the far reaching views of the Pyrenees and the forests - a truly idyillic location. Paul and Bianca are friendly and relaxed and made me feel welcome right from the beginning of my stay. I found the work itself rewarding and enjoyable to such an extent that it almost didn't feel like work - for me it was great to be outside doing something physical and having a sense of achievement at the end of the day by being able to see the progress I'd made. I did a whole range of tasks including cleaning out animal sheds, taking down/repairing fences, cutting back hedges, clearing brambles, helping to move livestock, digging/filling in trenches, mowing lawns, strimming, milling corn, doing some prep work for renovation of the gite and locating 'escaped' donkeys!; various tasks on the tractor including cutting the grass in the field and spreading fertiliser. I also removed a gate with the tractor ....but that wasn't planned!! (sorry Paul and Bianca!) But it wasn't all work: sitting down together to have Bianca's very tasty home cooked meals was very enjoyable, especially when were able to sit outside on the terrace. The opportunity to have a siesta after lunch was always welcome...and often taken up. The dogs are amazing and we went on a few long walks together - very therapeutic. The public transport links are reasonable and Paul was good enough to give me a lift to the pick up point at the local village so I was able to spend the weekends visiting my friends in Toulouse. Thank you Paul and Bianca for helping me make some great memories which will stay for me forever. I wish you all the best for the future and hopefully see you again!

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.

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

Well, working for Noel is more fun than everything else... The work is really interesting and indeed, \"requires a fair bit of thought\", but in my eyes that's more a motivation than everything else... But the most important thing: Noel really is a wonderful person! I'm grateful for every conversation or discussion we had. And that were quite a lot. It's interesting and a lot of fun to conversate with him. At least, because he is an interesting and also funny person. So, his qualities as a host are really just excellent and there is nothing negative for me to recomment... In short: Thank you, Noel for this wonderful, interesting, enjoyable month with you.

Andrea and Anke are great hosts who pay attention to the helpers. They always asked me if I have had everything I needed. The animals are also friendly including the sheep and chickens :) There is always something to be done and enough free time is given. In the evenings I was tired (but not worned-out) and satisfied, because I could see the good result of our work. They took me to the cities nearby, and were ready to help me with patience when I had some difficulties.

There are not enough stars to rate Paul and Claire's family! I really had a tremendous time with them! I stayed around 20 days in February with them and if I had known in advance that they were so nice I would have changed my plans to stay for a much longer period. Paul's work with wood is fantastic and you'll have a lot of fun helping alongside him. Work was usually very easy and you'll have a lot of time to visit and enjoy the beauty of Cornwall. You'll also discover Cornwall's culture, it has a strong identity and a fascinating history. Moreover, you'll eat like a king as Claire is a real good cooker. If you like animals, you will be happy with Rosie and Devon (the two dogs), the ducks, the chickens, the pigs and the cat! I had my own place in a caravan next to the house which was very comfortable. The caravan is fully furnished and wifi is available. I had all my meals in the house with the family and each moment spent with them was great. Well I could write pages about my time in Cornwall... But just one more thing: pay attention because if you go in you might not want to leave! Thank you so much Paul, Claire, Oliver and Mollie for being so nice with me... You're unique and I miss you now. I will come back this summer if you need help with the roof or whatever else!

The area is just amazing and it's very well connected if you want to travel around in your free time. If you are thinking to stay with them,just do it !

Suse and Fabian took us on several outings with their kids to the neighboring areas and we had a fun day out at Hannover Zoo. Most of all, we enjoyed getting to know the Wessel family and enjoyed learning about their way of looking at life and their creative endeavors. Oh, and their coffee is delicious!!

Along with guesthouse work I got to do various jobs, for example to photograph Tracy's antiques, which was interesting! The area is quiet, but I really enjoyed the peacefulness.

Jill cooked us delicious food and was very accommodating of Trevor's vegan diet. We worked from 9 til 2 , had a big lunch with our hosts and then were free to do our own thing .We went up to Mijas village to the bars and down to Fuengirola to the beach . One weekend we went to Granada. They have 4 rescue dogs so not a good place to go unless you like bouncy dogs. Trevor worked in their beautiful garden and I painted furniture and windows and did light garden work.Thank you Jill and Partick for a brilliant holiday.

I came here on Easter Sunday and the place was alive with children on a residential riding holiday. It was great fun and I am looking forward to the last two weeks of May, when more come to stay. The accommodation here is comfortable and Angelika is a great host and good cook (you will not go hungry!). There is a wonderful family atmosphere as we all eat together and chat around the table. The people who keep their horses here are also very friendly which adds to the pleasure of this place. The routine is pretty much as described in the previous review but I would like to clarify one point regarding the hours worked. Work does start at 8 and finish about 6 (that is the nature of working with horses) and there are jobs to be done in between, but not for the whole 10 hours. There is plenty of time to relax, go for a walk or ride in the beautiful countryside where you will see plenty of deer. After the horses have been fed, Sunday is pretty much a day off. Although there is an exchange of culture, this is 'workaway' and the clue is in the first 4 letters! Angelika is a very kind and generous person and I would hate anyone to miss out on this experience just because they thought the hours were too long, which is why I am writing my review whilst still here. I came with the intention of staying for my final 3 months in Germany, and I certainly will remain until then.

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!

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.

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

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

My first WorkAway couldn't have been a better experience. The location is stunning and John and Sarah are lovely people who made me feel at home from the start. They have a clear schedule of work and whilst some of the work was relatively physical (e.g. digging holes for grapevines) it is broken up to slots of no more than a couple of hours, so never feels excessive. John is always fair with allocating the work and always tries to vary it where possible. I personally thoroughly enjoyed working on rewarding projects outdoors in such an idyllic setting. Both Sarah and John are great fun and Sarah's a fantastic cook, freshly preparing beautiful dishes daily, usually from food grown on their own land. Overall I had a very enjoyable and rewarding experience and I will miss the place and all the people I met during my 2 week stay.

After my very first workaway experience being a complete failure, I was hesitant about venturing back to Algarve but I didn't have much of a choice. The flights were booked. I am SOOOO thankful that Karolina and Max welcomed me with opened arms into their quinta. THIS is what I will now consider as my official first workaway experience and it was magical!! So much happened in only 3 weeks!Not only did I get to eat the freshest produce from the trees and garden (I will miss my nespra and orange breakfast by the way ;)), I got to witness and learn bits and pieces of farm life, but also I got whisked by they're friends to explore Algarve and understand why people come and stay a little longer :) Thank you so much for rounding up all the massage bodies. Thank Philipe and Leon for the craziness, cries and laughter. And thank you Karolina and Max for the chats and advice. You have genuine golden hearts.

Donna and Nik were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they went out of their way to ensure that Richard, my fellow workawayer, and I were enjoying our holiday. We were very much made to feel part of the family and were included in evening activities. The work was enjoyable and varied and we got to spend some time making glass jewellery which was great fun! Also, the food was fresh and fantastic! I would definitely recommend staying with this family.

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

This was my first workaway and Alex and Ricardo made it a wonderful experience. They were very friendly and welcoming and made me feel right at home. They were also patient as i tried to string together words in spanish. I stayed in a lovely little caravan and every morning, woke up to a beautiful view of the mountains. 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. Thanks to you and all the gang, i had a great time!! :)

I spent around two weeks with Silverio, Caty, Nora and Omar and I loved their place: they really made me feel welcome, gave me very good accommodation and food, work I enjoyed (lots of painting but every time a different colour;-)), I could take part in family life, go to interesting places with them, but also had my own space. Outstanding house, tranquility, great scenery...Thanks for everything!

This is a place unlike any other establishment I've visited during my travels. What made this workaway experience so unforgettable was the people at the centro who are good-natured and warm-hearted people. The work was fair and mainly consisted of outdoor and indoor maintenance that included dishwashing, raking, and bathroom/shower cleaning 5 days a week and about 6 hours a day. The food is all vegetarian as it reflects their attitude of being nature conscience. I would find myself only looking forward to meal times most of the time I was there! Delicious! During free times, we visited Lake Orta and the peninsula nearby. This area is truly an oasis for outdoor enthusiasts. Even the 10-minute uphill walk to the centro everyday was beautiful! I miss the centro and the people there already. Thank you all for having me!

I volonteerd at Mickael and Maya s retreat in Feb and March 2012. It was an extremely busy season at the retreat but they are brilliant hosts and look after everyone very well. The three girls and fun, independant and easy to get along with, I miss Sonia´s singing! The workload is reasonable and leaves a good part of your day to do other things. I was also able to join in alot of activities such as snowshoeing, skiing, northenlight wathching, husky sledging, feltmaking, breadmaking, and Maya even lent me a yoga mat and some of her books for me to discover yoga, as there weren t any classes going on during my stay. The food is excellent and like many others, I have taken a few recepies home:) Finally I would just like to add how breathtakingly beautiful this part of the world is, from the multicolored sunsets and starlit nights to the healthy relationship that the people have with silence. Would definitely recommend Aurora.

The program is really organized and we all had the opportunity to volunteer and teach English at different locations and really get a feel for the city. They also organized a ton of group activities which were so fun and helped so much with the transition. They have salsa lessons, cooking classes, community meals, move nights and so much m ore. We all went on trips together over the weekends to amazing places in Guatemala and I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested in going to Guatemala! They also have really, really incredible spanish teachers.

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

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!

Really friendly people, food was good (where else can you get three warm meals a day?), accommodation wasn't bad either. Work wasn't too hard, plus you got the opportunity to earn some money working extra hours. If you are searching for a rather rural place to stay, Rathsallagh is definetely perfect.

It can be also a nice language experience, either French and English.

Thank you for accepting me, guys, and hope to see the results of your effort one day!

Malgré j’étais la seul workaway pour tout ce période, Brigitte a tout fait pour que cette première expérience s’est bien passé. Le travaille, diversifié, peut être, parfois, un peu plus fatigant en fonction d’affluence des clients mais il n’est pas difficile donc normalement on a l’après midi libre pour faire ce qu’on veut et Brigitte est très gentille en nous prêter sa voiture pour qu’on puisse nous promener pour découvrir la région. Je remercie à Brigitte et Philippe leur gentillesse et excellente hospitalité ce que feront de mes souvenirs de mon passage pour St. Michel encore mieux! Martha, Portugal

Michael is lovely, intellectual and a creative musician! He was our first host and we are very happy to have visited Perugia first and we would highly recommend him to anyone.

I had an incredible first workaway experience with Eddie and Katrien last summer. The home they have created is beautiful and full of creative energy, and the way they invite travellers in with open arms is truly inspiring. I could not have asked for a better first experience, their genuine warmth, kindness and humour has stayed with me. The work i did while there included gardening, cleaning, cooking and chopping a lot of wood... not once did it feel like a chore as it was done with friends. My sister and I were lucky enough to be there at the same time as some other lovely volunteers, and we had plenty of free time to explore the nearby towns, markets and parties. The region is very special and unspoilt, and people often come together to create their own entertainment. I especially enjoyed the concert Eddie and Katrien held in their barn by candlelight- it was magical. Thank you both xxxxx

I still remember the nights with clear moon when I was accompanied till the door of my room by the song of the forest and crickets, and the moon lighted my way…here everybody is friendly- the nature, the people, and the little girls are adorable… in fact a place is special because of the people that are living there are special. I met really wonderful, lovely and helpful people :) when I needed something or I had a question, they solve all my problems in a few seconds. The work I had to do was easy and the atmosphere was relaxing- here I met other volunteers and had enough time to discover the places nearby. Everything was great!!! It was a dream and dreams don’t last forever so unfortunately I had to come back to the reality, but I will come back as soon as possible :)

You would be hard-pressed to find a landscape as wild and beautiful as that surrounding Zahara or hosts as accommodating and kind as Mona and Stefan. I spent the month of April with them and not a day passes that I do not think back upon my time in Zahara this spring. A truly magical place. One piece of advice would be to come with the intention of really trying to improve your spanish (or more accurately, your andalusian) because the town is home to some of incredibly friendly, knowledgable people and there is a great opportunity to learn if you are willing to listen. The farmhouse is very comfortable and in an incredible location at the base of town. There is a lot of work to do around the property, with Mona and Stefan already having invested an incredible amount of time and energy in the land over the last few years. A really wonderful family, very bright, creative and loving with each other. Thank you for such a memorable trip.

The stay with Sue and Jim was our 1st Workaway attempt and an amazing experience, which we will keep in our memories as something truly positive in the future. Because this was our 1st time in Portugal, Sue’s great knowledge of Portuguese life proved to be very instructive for us in the Algarve. Tavira and its beach were a phenomenal experience. The house was very comfortable and we were spoilt by tasty food - thanks particularly to Marianne! Leo and I prepared vegetable beds, planted trees and vegetables and tried to increase the amount of pelargonium and lavender. There was also, as in every garden, a lot of weed and grass to clear. It was very interesting for us to get to know vegetation which is quite different to what we have in Germany. Also the hot weather at the beginning of October made no difference to our work; it was simply fulfilling for us to see the result of our work every day. Bicycles are available for use and Tavira is very easy to ride to.

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

I stayed with 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.

The sadness I felt at leaving this wonderful family was a strong indication of just what a brilliant place it was to stay. I feel incredibly fortunate to have experienced such a warm welcome and fantastic time with the family and their animals (DJ I miss you!) as my first workaway experience. I hope to be back very soon! :)
