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!\"

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

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

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

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

I spent a month with Frank and Daniela this summer (’12) and had an amazing time. They were very welcoming and supportive, as were Daniela’s lovely children and Dolce & Fatimah (the quinta workers). What I will remember most is having the opportunity to meet scores and scores of extremely friendly and interesting people on a daily basis in the form of guests, staff and fellow workawayers. As Luke said- hard, but rewarding work. Frank and Daniela are the most hardworking people I’ve met so their standards are high, however you will never work anywhere near as much as they do. Admittedly I did struggle with the workload to begin with however F&D were always there to offer guidance and support and I have come home with so many more life skills. Thanks for an opportunity of a lifetime! Brave Rabbit x

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

I met a lot of different people, discover Elisabeth\'s philosophy and learned a lot from her. I recommend here. Mature and open mind people. It\'s also a really good place for yoga practicers in the middle of the countryside surrounded by wood ... peaceful, quiet and wise. I will go back, I found there a new close friend. Cheers.

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...

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!

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

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 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!

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 really enjoyed my stay and time with this warm and caring family who go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy your time in LA. Laura has sold her house so I think that I was lucky to have time in her character house but her lovely Mum, Sarah, may continue to take workawayers so if you get the chance to stay there, grab it! Thank-you Laura, Damien, and Sarah.

Had a great time here, treated just like one of the family. The countryside round there is beautiful and had lots of time off to explore it (often with a dog or two) Was great seeing the countryside come into life in spring, even if the weather did see me getting sunburned one week and snowed on the next

I spent a month here at this place and had the absolute time of my life. 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.

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

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

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

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

I have spent 5-6 weeks of June/July in Michelstetten with Andrea, her two amazing dogs and two cute baby cats. And I could not have asked for more! This was my first workaway'ing experience, which I will never forget: not only could I improve my German with the help of Andrea, but she also took me to so many beautiful places around to visit, that I fell in love with Lower Austria! If You feel that you are the \"child of the nature\", who needs to run away from a crowded city, if You want to spend some time in the loveliest village, surrounded by valley, forests and hills, and if You don't mind not having Internet and TV and doing some gardening, household and taking care of the pets - this is the very best place for You to go! You will then definitely enjoy Andrea's and her pets' company :) Liebe Andrea, vielen vielen Dank nochmal für alles, ich werde diese wunderschöne Zeit mit Dir in Michelstetten nie vergessen!

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

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

I 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!

Brigitte and her family are some of the kindest most intelligent and thoughtful people I have met. Brigitte really took me under her wing right away, so helpful with language, meals were always delicious and plentiful and I would always learn something new and interesting in conversation around the table. She went well above and beyond my expectations when she took me to the moulin rouge to learn the charleston. That woman can dance! Location is great, it\'s three minutes away from everything you need, including the train station for your days off exploring Versailles and Paris. The work is different every day, which I like a lot. It was really great to just bop my head along to the music while painting, cleaning and gardening. I really liked the other work away-ers there with us, I think we made a great team. A+++ hosting!!! Stay and work here, you will love the whole family right away!

I've stayed at Kat & Henry's place for two weeks and apart the prompt response to my requirement and their great welcome, I need to say they are two wonderful, generous and reliable persons that helped and encouraged me so much to speak and get a better level of English, sharing a lot of their time with me. They showed total disposition to make me feel comfortable in every moment. I enjoyed a spacious, fantastic, cosy room; healthy and delicious meals; useful advices with any doubt I had. And gave me a lift to the villages in the surrounding at any moment I asked them. Their dog, Lebowski, is such a huge ball of dark hair always willing to play. The work is not difficult at all with them, you don't feel you are working but having fun. I was helping them to refurbish their mansion with another workawayer and made a great team, working the four together most of the time. I can say I had a marvelous experience, learnt so many things (like polyfilling) and spent a very good time, so I would warmly recommend them as hosts to any workawayer.

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

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

I agree with everything that\'s been said so far. Vasilis is a rare person who dedicates almost all of his waking time to improving and promoting his neighborhood. His mind is always overflowing with ideas, so it\'s inspiring to be around him. Just a note on this, though - be prepared to offer your own ideas, too. He really wants volunteers to take the initiative and tell him what kind of talents they can share. The accommodation was also excellent. Vasilis is very well-equipped for visitors. You have an entire floor of the house to yourself or to share with other volunteers, and he makes sure you\'re always stocked with food so you can cook for yourself. Or sometimes he or his mom will cook something and share with you. Overall I had a wonderful experience here and wouldn\'t hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Go and spread your creativity.!

I had a wonderful time in this beautiful guesthouse! Maria, Roger, MacDuff and Nana are great and made me feel like being a part of their family! The guesthouse is a gorgeous place: a very beautiful country house in the middle of a fantastic landscape. You can hear and see the river in the garden while sitting in the living room next to the fireside. It was great fun to go for walks with MacDuff, the cutest dog ever, and I enjoyed working with Maria in the \"heart of the house\": the kitchen. The working conditions are more than fair, the work is well-structured, so it's always clear what you have to do and definitely not too hard, I had fairly enough time to relax and to enjoy Scotland! Maria is a queen in the kitchen! She is unbelievable well-organised in everything she does, an amazing chef (try the sepia salad!!!) and a great strong and down-to-earth woman. Roger took me in his car for a lot of great trips around the area and gave me a lift whenever he had to drive anywhere. He is a great driver and an excellent guide! I really enjoyed spending my free time with them! Even though the guesthouse is in the middle of the countryside, you never have to be lonely in this wonderful family and there are so many great things to do!! The room I slept in is very beautiful, tastefully arranged and cosy, like every room in the guesthouse and I could use my own bathroom. All in all I can highly recommend this workaway host!! I will never forget you and what I learned from you, Maria and Roger, MacDuff, Nana and Kim and I miss you! Big hug and hope to see you again! Natascha

Just coming back from a short stay in Gnadendorf, I have to say that I just had an amazing time with the huskies! Lukas is a friendly and easygoing host who trusts his volunteers with his dogs (and his car as well...), and working with the team of 16 huskies is very rewarding. During my short time there, I learnt a lot and enjoyed being outside, taking care of the dogs, going for walks and working with groups and in the garden. Since this is in the countryside and the dogs need to follow their routine, this is truly not a place for people who want to party at night, sleep in in the morning, or walk into town to do some shopping, but anyone who is devoted to working with dogs, being outdoors and learning more about animal-assisted therapy will find this truly rewarding. I wish I could have spent more time there and hope to be back some day!

What can we say! This was such a wonderful stay in every respect; the work was interesting and varied, and was always carried out as a team. It involved gardening, renovation, path clearing, wall breaking, painting, sanding and much more! The accomodation was great with a decent bedroom on the top floor of the house. The house itself is beautiful and is at treetop level overlooking the pont calleck forest.. surronding areas are great for walks, bikerides, sitting in forests and by rivers, varied landscapes. Kathy was a brilliant host; having travelled herself she knew what helpers wanted and always made sure everyone was happy in their work and comfortable in their stay. There were several other helpers staying and Kathy herself is a great friend as well as a host. Here, we were always appreciated and became valuable members of a dynamic team, rather than ever having the feeling that you had a boss. We were always treated well, fed well, and were given freedom to choose our working hours. Mealtimes were a sociable time of the day and were never rushed! I could carry on for a while but I think I have said enough... this was the perfect experience for us and we spent an incredible month there that we will always remember. Thankyou!

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

This place is outstanding. You feel like you're in little paradise. I fixed and did some new german translation for their website. Also i did heaps of Photographs and made some videos and edited them for their website. well i mostly worked more than 5h per day but it was a good job. Raquel is a relaxed person. She and Chris are good people and included me into their private live like they know me long time! Their Kids are a lot of fun too. I lived in an apartment the beginning which was great and later as they all was booked i lived in a big tent. However, it was all good. Also i could practice some Yoga, which is really helpful and relaxing. If you get the chance to work there, take it. Lanzarote is unique and Casa el Morro surely is too.. thanx a lot..

Jan was a warm and welcoming host. She took good care of us and made sure we felt part of the family. We worked around the unseasonaly inclement weather and had to change our plans a few times when jobs got rained off. We had a great time and on our time off Jan was generous enough to take us round and show us the sights. We met loads of Jans wonderful friends when we helped host an Easter luncheon and everyone we came into contact with made us feel very welcome. This was our first workaway experience and I would recommend it to anyone. Our grateful thanks to Jan and her friends for making our arrival in Italy so memorable. We will definitely keep in touch. Warm regards Karon and Alex :)

I really couldn't have asked for a better first workaway experience! I felt completely at home, and Toni & Ed were really flexible and relaxed about when I worked, and really accommodating in terms of my dietary requirements. The boys are great kids with amazing imaginations - I loved playing with them and reading them loads of stories; I certainly got an education in Lego, Ninjago and Star Wars! It's a lovely place with a nice deck to catch some rays on while you're eating your lunch, and the caravan was perfect - a cosy little bolthole where I could chill out if I wanted to. Thank you so much for having me and making me feel so comfortable! I'm sure I'll be back to see you in the not too distant future :-) xxx

We had a wonderful time staying with Suse and Fabian! Their home is located in a beautiful area and is very interesting in its own right. We really enjoyed their relaxed pace of life and liked to jog around the villages in the evenings. The accommodation was very cozy and we felt at home spending time with the family in the living room. 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!! All the best, Alexis and Paul

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

I enjoyed being part of their family and Nina taught me lots about gardening; I also picked up a few cooking tips (Nina is an amazing cook). Nina and James are inspiring parents and they helped me to understand how I might be a good parent in future. Thank you so much for the experience!

My friend Liv and I had the most amazing time here, a very special and magical place. Judy and Steve are very helpful and kind and fun to be with. The jobs we had to do were not too bad, either (I still don't like blackberries, though ;)) and the food - what can you expect, when you live at a cafe with a pretty good chef?! :D We started every morning at 10 with a cup of tea and then went to clean the boot, move flowers, weed the vege gardens, dig out blackberries or help in the kitchen. We had lunch in the cafe and dinner together with Steve and Judy. Some evenings Liv and I cooked and altough we're not really good cooks they at least pretended to like it ;) However, we didn't have to cook very often, as they often enjoyed the company of nice friends in the evenings. Our accomodation was a seperate little house with a comfortable double bed and there's another little house with the kitchen and a shower + composting toilet. It was really nice to have one's own space and privacy, after all the dorms in the hostels. :) We'd definitely recommend this place! Finally the only thing left to say is thank you, Judy and Steve, for everything!

Working with them was one of the most rewarding opportunities of my life. I didn't expect to spend my entire stay with the Commune, but the warm personalities and off the beaten path locations kept me involved. I taught in Manali, Galot Village, and Delhi. The motives of all affiliated individuals are pure. This is one of the best run volunteer tourism operations I've seen. I give this organization my highest recommendation. I'll definitely be in touch if I return to India.

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

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

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

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

I 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.

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!

It's interesting and a lot of fun to conversate with him. At least, because he is an interesting and also funny person.

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

I spent about two weeks on the farm and I really wish I could have stayed longer. The landscape is gorgeous and the people are warm and welcoming. Genevieve and Erick really make sure that you feel comfortable and included in their home, and that relationship makes you really want to work with them, to give back and help out in any way you can. And there\'s so much to do around the area during free time - swimming in the river, walking around the villages, reading from Erick\'s huge stockpile of literature (ps Erick, - I got Jonathan Lethem\'s book from my library! And I\'ll try to track him down for you in New York). The farm was a great opportunity to meet new people, work outdoors, eat delicious bread, drink honey wine, learn french (even though I gave up a bit - but I still know the french word for horse shit!), plant cabbage and read palms. Oh, and get addicted to Damages. Thanks so much 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!

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!
