This family is absolutely awesome! I spent a little less than two weeks with them but I wish I had spent longer. Everyone made me feel welcome! They made an extra effort to talk to me in English since I don\'t speak German. During my stay there I helped mostly around the house and in the kitchen and I helped picked berries. I didn\'t know what to expect since it was my first experience doing workaway, but I had such a great time with them, I didn\'t want to leave. I truly recommend the experience to everyone... You will get to enjoy their beautiful property and the surrounding area of Corinthia while spending time with wonderful people. I really miss all of them and hope to see them again :)

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

Moabi and Michael are lovely people. They both make you feel immediately at home when you arrive. The work was interesting and fun but we could not do too much during mid-summer because it was so hot! There is a very nice, relaxed atmosphere at Tribodar and everyone is included in decisions of what to do. The tipi makes a comfortable and shaded area to relax during the day and eat etc at night. The caravans are nice and comfortable and have electricity. I will definitely be going back :)

Anna and Eamon were great hosts. They and their daughters made my first workaway experience exceptional. They made me feel like part of the family. They looked out for me to make sure I was ok and always asked if I needed anything. They were open to new ideas when it came to the work that needed to be done and were also open to trying new foods! I had a great time at their house(which is a mansion, by the way) and made many great memories. Thank you so very much, everyone. I look forward to seeing you all again!

Fantastic! Thank you for hosting me and letting me work on your beautiful farm. Apricots, tomatos, peppers, pumpkins, basil, oranges, lemons, limes, olives, grapes and persimmons. Mangia, mangia!! I felt like family in a matter of days. Over the top hospitalilty. It would help knowing a little more Italian, but lucklily another workawayer named Pepe made my life a lot easier, translating for me. I will miss all the wonderful cooking and company at the dinner table. Pizza, pasta, salads, steaks, wine and cokes!

We stayed with Rosa and Pompilio the whole month of March and what a month ! We enjoyed every bit of it; discovering the Italian way of life with them is an unforgettable experience. Rosa went out of her way to make us feel welcome and Pompilio is really keen on sharing his knowledge. We learnt so much about farming and nature, as well as cooking the Italian way ! 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 !

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

I spent 1 month with Julie in her B&B in the monthof July 2012. Together we did the household chores, taking time out together/separately in our down time. I found Julie very easy to work with; very hospitable and couldnt do enough to make my stay very pleasant and comfortable. Julie spent a lot of her personal time showing me around the local markets and villages. She was flexible regarding the type of work we chose to do, and very easy to get along with. I would definitely recommend her workaway and hope I can return in the future. Thanks very much Julie.

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

I spend an incredible 28 day in Eflatun, it was a very enriching personal experience. Aydin and Ebru were amazing hosts, and within a week I already started feeling at home, as if I have always been there. It is a unique place to spend time, both relaxing and working. I got to do things I never imagined, I learned a lot about life in the countryside, and even if sometimes work got pretty exhausting, at the end of the day, I always felt very good about it. I will surely miss riding in the Toyota car on our way to the “other land”… I hope rainy days for the almond trees. I will also miss baby Ata, walking with him in the garden, he has a great personality, and I would love to see him again when he grows up. Thank you Aydin for having the patience to work with an inexperienced “city girl” like me :) I wish you all the best; I hope you have the strength to accomplish everything you, and your family, dream of! Hope to see you again… Big Hug from Romania!

Even when Pat and Bob are not there when thery're off work, you are not alone because of all the friendly animals around. I had the luck that there were some other workawayers at the same time too! I would definetly reccomend this place for anyone.

I have no words to describe the incredible time I had at Ananda Nagar and Acupuncture clinic. Dada, my host, took care of us and made sure everything would run smoothly for me and my boyfriend. We were welcomed with open arms and felt at home the whole time. The room was excellent and very spacious with a big balcony, where you can relax. The food was excellent, very delicious Indian vegetarian meals (vegan for me), cooked specially for us. I'm an acupuncture student and this place caught my attention as usually internships and observation are done in China. Here I found an amazing project that overpassed all my expectations. Although Ananda Nagar struggles in many ways, being a very poor village in rural India, where most basic things are lacking on the everyday life of the population, the acupuncturists and the monks who live in there, are truly dedicated into making life easier and better for everyone. The generosity I saw and experienced was incredible. The quality of their services in Acupuncture is amazing and they are full of knowledge, as they treat from 60 to 80 patients a day. You'll find conditions and diseases already extinct in the western world, which makes this place a gem for observation and practice. Although I visited in 2010, I kept contact with Dada until this day, this is how well I felt there and how empowering my visit was. In Ananda Nagar, you'll experience the real India, away from all the touristy areas.

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

Brad and I had an amazing time with Stu and Owl in April. It was our first workaway experience and we were really pleased it was such a pleasant one. The work for me consisted of setting up the guest houses, a bit of general/domestic work as well as setting up communal areas and doing outdoor work like weeding and putting up shading nets. Brad did a lot of handy carpentry work and repairs, helped with marble patios and built a shelter for a little sauna. It was generally quite a mixed and interesting pot of work and we all shared cooking duties which brought some amazing food to the table! The communal areas are brilliant for relaxing in your own time and for hanging out together. Stu and Owl are lovely people and both Brad and I thoroughly appreciated their hospitality. From Grace.

WOW! What a great experience , we couldn t have asked for more! Our first workaway adventure has enriched us so much. We spent a month in the lovely and warm company of Hendrik ,Christine and their friendly cats at Raspberry Hill and we enjoyed every moment of it. You can just sense the positive energy from miles away and we really felt like part of the family. We loved all our tasks and delicious dinners sprinkled with lovely and rich conversations about life. Eberholzen is a beautiful and very friendly village with amazing surroundings, we also enjoyed our free time in Hannover, Hildesheim and Kassel. Likewise, we had the opportunity to attend our first meditation workshop together and we must say it was a wonderful experience. We were so excited to be part of the Raspberry Hill project. It is the perfect place for couples to retreat , relax and raise their awareness and love with the help of Hendrik and Christine. We are deeply grateful for such a magnificent encounter and wish them nothing but love and success. As for you workawayers, we assure you of a very good time working on a beautiful project with lovely hosts.

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!

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 fantastic time working in the preschool. During my short stay, school was in between sessions, so I had the joy of working with the daycare class. The children were an absolute joy, enthusiastic and motivated to learn and always so polite. I also enjoyed working alongside the staff, who were all such dedicated teachers full of new and creative ideas for the classes. Additionally, staying with the local host family was a wonderful way to experience Newari culture. The home-made food was delcious and they were incredibly accomodating, always going above and beyond to help me. I would recommend this stay to anyone interested in gaining an authentic insight into the Nepali lifestyle.

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

We went into Rome often, but also got to visit lots of the neighboring villages. Marina introduced us to several of their friends and we really didn't want to leave even after 5 weeks.

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!

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

His focus on making sure that I am enjoying the beauty of Normandy as well as get to work on my French language skills were so motivating that it was an ease to perform any duties in the house - and I even got to learn new skills :-) Roger is an absolute joy to be around with – he is so funny and always has great stories to tell. And Veejay – the dog – is definitely the most special and cutest one I have ever met :-) Anybody that can enjoy a stay there is certainly very lucky.

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

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 !

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.

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!

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!

How does one leave feedback for a family that weren't just hosts, but have become enduring friends. I cannot overstate how enjoyable my time on Lismore has been. From the beautiful island itself, to the amazing Campbell-Paine family, every day was truly incredible. Yorick and Sarah were brilliant hosts, very easy-going and fun to be around. Also both excellent cooks! The work was also very interesting, always something new to be done every week. I think the best recommendation I could ever make is: when it came time to leave, I wish I never had to leave at all. I hope to see you guys again soon!

Who wants the best hosts of 'la douce france' must keep on reading; Patricia and Rob are the most hospital and gentil english persons who give workawayers the feeling they're coming home in the most beautiful and best concerved part of france. Being part of the family and doing general maintanance of their beautiful landscaped garden have been a rare and rewarding experience. They guide you through work, the french way of life and their huge range of interests (cooking, nature and music) and ideals. Thanks a lot to both of you and I'll try to visit you guys next year to check out the hedge we planted.

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

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

We would like to give a special thank for the patience they had in their strives to help us learn Norwegian in which we are new. We believe that the consequences of their slow talk and pronunciation in order for us to understand them will remain for some time.:) So many lovely memories of a gorgeous family from Hagaveinen 11...

I actually cannot describe how amazing my experience here was. More than a month later I still miss the shanti! The family are extremely generous, loving, fair and welcoming, making you feel completely comfortable and at home; they especially love to feed you! It can also be a lot of fun, with a lot live music, the guests all eating together and quite a few parties on the weekends. Do be prepared not to hear much English and don\'t expect to be constantly entertained, but really, I don\'t think you could find a better place to go, so please work hard to help them out! Maja

There are lots of work to do in the smallholding and a lots of places to explore in this area. I enjoyed cycling and walking around. Moreover, I visited places and towns and enjoyed some bars with them,Jamie is a machine in darts. The acomodation is great and I could adapt it to me. All the facilities are provided and they make feel you as part of family. We enjoyed the Jamie's meals in dinner. I met Laura and Manu, others workawayers, that was a pleasure to share those days as well. If you like working and learning outdoors with hands, enjoying a quiet environment and living with a great people this is your place.

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

Every meal was hearty and delicious, they never wanted me to work too much and they were so kind to show me the surroundings driving me everywhere (Normandy beaches, Domfront, Bayeux, Mont Sain-Michel and more!) and never accepted gas money! The farm is really nice and there are a lot of animals: dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, geese, kune kune pigs (btw, how are the seven piglets?), rabbits, and eighteen (plus one) bl**dy sheep; but Pip and Meg are definitely my favourite, I miss them a lot! If you want to workaway, have fun and visit Normandy, you definitely have to come here. It will be hard for me to find better hosts!

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!

We could talk and laugh a lot together during feeding and training the lamas, the walks with their two lovely dogs in the morning, or during cooking together. Beate was more like a workaway-mum than a host; she is very caring :). It felt more like having a home. And it was a great experience to work with lamas; actually I did not know that much about them before, but they are absolutelly fascinating; calm and quite and very friendly. And they did not spit once on me ;)! For my first workaway-experience it could`nt have been more perfect, I would love to come back :). Thank you so much!

They helped us explore the nice bastille towns in the are and in the evening they took us with them to barbecues.

My time in Gavaudun was everything that I had hoped for (maybe even more). The Yollands are great! From playing a bit of Halo and visiting castles/bastides to actually working on the barn or in the garden, I loved every bit of it! And now, returning to my regular pace of juggling school, work and social life, I'd prefer to go back. HD

Have just spent 6 weeks in the home of this wonderful couple in a beautiful part of the Great Smoky Mountains (foothills). My experience was extremely positive and I met a lot of wonderful people as Dwight and Kat made me feel like part of the family and included me in lots of their regular activities. I was made to feel very welcome. Although I did not visit them them to work on the farm (my focus was on the dog training aspect instead), you can learn so much from them about dogs, farming, country living and just life in general. Kat is a fantastic dog trainer, as well as having a huge range of other skills (which I won\'t mention here \'cos she will get a big head!) with a wealth of knowledge covering pretty much every aspect of this broad science. And Dwight is one of those guys who can fix just about anything and has a wonderful respect for and knowledge of nature. So whatever your area of interest is, you stand to learn a lot from visiting. Overall, really easy people to get along with, good sense of humour, interesting, knowledgeable and very kind people. Hope you too have a wonderful experience on here! Ronan Kenny

Man. I was expecting hard work. but this was insane. impossible people, no fun at all. and just plain no fun na kidding. I had some of the best times I have ever had, in my life. hard work, but food breaks, and worthwhile work. Food was, every signle day without fail, insanely good. either cooked by the two thai owners or by chris a chef half the year for a yacht that cruises the Meditteranean. mad walks into the mountains, wild little kids running around, i got to shoot a gun, jumped off waterfalls. smoked 10cent tobacco. na. go here. cannot be regrettted.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the amazingly beautiful Villa . Andy and Simona are excellent hosts, cooks, guides and friends, so it was a pleasure to spend time with them. They allowed me to work on a wide variety of fun tasks, all whilst making me feel welcome and at home. I hope to meet you all again in the future and there is always a home for you to stay at if you decide to spend some time in Canterbury.

I had a great time staying there with Tom and Joan. I really appreciate what I have leaned from Tom. Also the food they made for me is good, I got fed very well.Their house is just by the Tennesse river, I like to walk down to the river a lot. The host always have some interesting story to tell also. Anyways, it became a very great experience for me.

We spent a great five weeks at Verenas beautiful home and would recommend her most highly to anyone considering Workaway. She is a talented cook and we were able to enjoy some wonderful lunches and dinners with her. She has a great enthusiasm for life, is intelligent, considerably cultured and has many interesting friends as well as two great pets who are part of her household. We were made to feel most welcome at all times. Thank you Verena.

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!

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!

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

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

Joyce, Scott and Ched are really uncomplicated persons. I felt comfortable very quick in their house and I had nice encouters with some of their friends during my 2,5 weeks stay. The Halloween party they organised was something special... The work was great: I started working on a trail, I transported wood in the basement and I piled it, I helped with dump commissions and I liked to use your ATV Scott ;)...they have an old gypsum mine in their \"backyard\" and I made some tours to carry some loads of it in their garden... I shouldn't forget: fishing oysters with waders on and beeing surrounded by great nature is really cool! Thank you for all! Lorenz

We could not have asked for a better first-time experience as Workaway newbies! Sharon, Dick and Maia immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable in their home; the food and accommodations alone made us feel like we came out on the better end of the deal. The tasks we completed weren't too arduous (floor and wall scrubbing, along with some light lifting) and still allowed for time to explore their lush finca and Ciudad Colon. We especially enjoyed Sharon's hysterical story-telling, Dick's good-natured humor and ever-present smile and Maia's superb horseback riding guide skills. Be ready to work...but if you can follow through on commitments, know how to alphabetize and enjoy lively dialogue with your meals, you'll want to experience Finca Saramandaia!

We had a wonderful time with our little saffron family in the beautiful Marche region! Work was a little exhausting and mind-numbing when harvest reached its peak, but we had plenty of time afterwards to explore the area and visit some wonderful sights. Anne and Caspar were great hosts and we enjoyed all of our shared lunches and candle-lit suppers. They were always helpful, taught us a lot about the area and culture, and were very welcoming. Being surrounded by a lot of other helpers made the stay even better and it was great to be a part of a big family. Best of luck with everything and hope the harvest next year exceeds this one!! Hope to see you in the future and await Lo Zaff saffron on the shelves of New York supermarkets!

What a wonderful week with Kristie, Paul, and their family, including the three dogs. The work was meaningful, the accommodations wonderful, and the setting idyllic. Lasting memories of beautiful Bordeaux skies when taking a break from \"weeding\" the new vines, extending lunches under the Horse Chestnut tree (in full bloom and buzz when I was there!), extended walks thru the beautiful countryside that provided breathtaking views at almost every turn. The opportunities were plentiful, the learning was rich, and the \"room & board\" was four star by anyone's standards (I was there outside of the b&b season so go to stay in their exquisite suite) - Kristie's a great chef - the family dinners, complimented by their wonderful 2009 Bordeaux... Can't imagine a more perfect Bordeaux winery experience - you should do it, too!

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.

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!

There are no words to describe how genuinely caring and generous Julia is. She gave us the opportunity to workaway for four weeks at the chateau (without any previous experience/feedback), and they were the best four weeks we could have ever hoped for. Julia, her partner Philip, and brother Tim treated us like part of their family, which made leaving so bittersweet because we loved spending the days with them working in the garden, sharing a glass of tea in the afternoon, and having family dinners together at night once all the guests were fed. We would recommend the chateau to any new or seasoned workawayer looking for good company, fair work responsibilities, and excellent accommodations. Julia gave us an opportunity to explore our passions in life and for that we are eternally grateful. We will miss you all more than you could ever know.

Well, after a horrid start to the workaway program elsewhere in Europe we made our way to Spain to live with the Greville clan and what a fantastic family!! Not only did they go the distance to make us a part of their family but they did everything, and more, that could be asked of a host family when it came to getting us out to see Spain. The work and hours are more than fair and the food is fantastic, Caroline is a great cook! Working for Rob is a blast, his sense of humour makes the day fly by. If you're willing to pull your weight and want to visit a family who is well integrated within their local Spanish community, then you MUST come to see the Greville clan, you'd be missing out if you didn't! Thank you so much Rob, Caroline and Ben! We look forward to seeing you in Canada!
