This was my first workaway experience so I didn't know how everything is going to work. However I felt very welcomed right in the beginning and Andy picked me up from train station with their cool Spitfire! Food was extremely delicious and Andy and Tracy both have a great sense of humour. 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. I had a lovely time, thank you all: Andy, Tracy, Molly and Jack! And of course Buster and the Cat!

Marina & Mauritzo are WONDERFUL hosts! My fiance and I had the opportunity to stay with them for 5 wonderful weeks and helped prepare their new home. We did a variety of work, all of which was fun, interesting and easy. Marina baked some wonderful bread and desserts and Mauritzo spoiled us with lots of great Italian cooking. 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. Marina & Mauritzo really care for their guests, go above and beyond, and I'm happy to say that we consider them not just hosts, but now good friends. Hope to see them again one day!

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.

Wow...what can I say about Kate, Marc, and Antoine! The days never truly felt like work...rather just lending a helping hand to great friends. From the moment I arrived they made me feel as a part of the family. Thank you for showing me around your charming village and the beautiful area of Bretagne. I could not have asked for a better host family. A special thank you to \"mama Kate\" for being such a wonderful surrogate mom, keeping us well fed and entertained. I look forward to coming back and seeing your progress once everything is finished. Best wishes to you all! Dominique

We had a wonderful time staying with Angelo in Sicily! His property is close to two sweet little towns, and a bus ride from both Catania and the beautiful Mt. Etna. Angelo gave us great advice and even lent us cold weather clothes to climb the volcano. During our time we him we worked on clearing his property after some renovations, some winter gardening and chopping firewood. The work wasn't difficult, we could do it on our own schedule, and it was enjoyable to help him get the property in order. We enjoyed his company and that of his lovely old pup, Asia. Recommended!

Suzy and David, it has been a pleasure to work at your beautiful farm in Sushitsa! They are a great couple, very likable and easy going. I can hardly imagen how to feel wrong at their place... :) The volenteers do have lot of free space while working, can get creativ in and around the house and, don't worry, there is always work but on the other hand you will not be working all day long... I also realy enjoyed learning how to make jam, the pool, the horse rides, my best friend the donkey Maggy and all the other animals, nice nights playing poker, black jack (Yeah!!) or jazz (lets not talk about it, David....) And, ofcause, the Village! Sushitsa is so beautiful. If you want to exerience the traditionall Bulgarien life : go to Sushitsa!! You will see things that you would never expect to be left in a european country... Thank you for your hospitality, hope winter is not getting to bad this year... Best wishes to you, SUZY and DAVID! (and, ofcause, to all my friends in the village.. ;) ), and Maggy and the dogs... Gwen

I had a fantastic time with Sue and Mike who are both lovely people and excellent hosts. This was my first experience as a workaway and i couldnt have picked a better place to start! I had a lovely room and Sue is an excellent cook and i was made to feel very welcome and at home. Sue and Mike introduced me to their friends and showed me around the local area. I worked hard in the garden clearing an area for new lawn to be laid as well as a few other jobs but it was a pleasure to do it and nothing seemed like a chore. I would recommend Sue and Mike as hosts to anyone wanting to visit the area and i now consider them both to be my friends and i will definitely keep in touch and be back in the future. I am very grateful to both.

We had a great time here, and we couldn't have wished for a better place to be for our first workaway! The ABBA/ZAPPA party was fun, although hard work. There is always something to do, the nearest shops/village is 20mins away by bicycle (which they can lend you). All of the staff were great, taught us some German, food is awesome as long as you like potato and we hope to come back one day. Danke

I spent 10 days with Julie, Alisha and Millie in February. Mallorca is a wonderful and calm island, it’s sunny and green even in winter. Julie has a lovely house in heart of the island. I did gardening in her beautiful garden, and once I helped at her friend’s riding school. By the way, I was lucky for met some of Julie’s friends, all of them friendly and funny people. Amazing landscape surrounds Julie’s place, it is ideal for jogging and riding (I tried it once, big thank Julie!:)). Julie is a good cook indeed! We made a super indian dinner together. She was absolutely kind and helpful through this time. It was really nice to meet you Julie, you and your daughter are very great and friendly people! All the bests for you!

If you ever get the chance to visit Luigi, Grazia and Bogdan DO NOT miss your chance. This was my first workawayer experience and i loved every second of it. The accommodation i was provided was brilliant, the area was breath taking. The work was very relaxed and found myself in such good spirits all the time. Tried my hand at a few DIY projects but found myself better for painting, very therapeutic in such an amazing place. The food prepared for me was always wonderful with such a variety, i also had the pleasure of joining Bogdan and his friends for a night out on the town on a few occasions and I'm certain ill be staying in touch with all the lads! We had dinner at a few different places but i must admit they did not compare to Luigis cooking! I would recommend this experience to anyone and everyone as i cannot wait to see the whole family again!!! And dont forget to show Beano lots of love! Thank you all again for making my time in Manduria so special and showing me theres more to life, i hope to see you very soon :) Jack x

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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!

They've fully embraced the ethos of workaway and integrate all the volunteers into their lives so that you really feel like part of a family. Their cortijo is set in paradise with beautiful views and interesting places to explore. The work itself is interesting and provides lots of opportunities to learn because it is so varied.

We helped Madeleine and Marcus for a couple of weeks in the lead up to their first guests arriving. This was a time when there was a lot to do, and with them working long days it was difficult to feel relaxed in our down time and of course we wanted to help relieve their stress. However we were well looked after and the room we stayed in was very comfortable and clean and with a nice bathroom next door. Most importantly we were included in family life rather than being made to feel like serfs (which has been our experience elsewhere!) As the weather warmed up we got in a couple of nice swims in the pool and we got taken to a market, and a lovely village to explore on our time off. We also got to use the bikes. Madeleine cooked some lovely meals, despite being very busy and not having much time to shop, it is amazing what she whipped up! We miss this beautiful and interesting slice of rural France, the family and the lovely animals. Hope to come back one day for a holiday!

Earring good music, having a beer, riding bicycle, cooking with Jill… you will never be hungry with vegetables from the garden! If you want to go to party, just ask Jack and Alice, their children, they will be very happy to come with you. You will share knowledge and stories with Granddad Jack or just run with Jess, his dog.

It was a great experience in a beautiful region in France, Brigitte and Philippe are nice and welcoming and the other workaways were great fun to be with. Since Brigitte is very generous with lending her car we had lots of opportunities to go and visit the many sights in the Dordogne. The work isn\'t hard and we did get a fair share of wine with our meals. As well as that we cooked a meal for dinner twice which was a lot of fun and played Trivial Pursuit with Brigitte, Pauline and their neighbour Aurélie. Merci beaucoup pour ce séjour!

Claire is such a good cook too, you can never really go hungry in that house. Ricardo knows the best places for ab sailing too. Was my first time and i loved it. The kids are fun to be around, as long as Maite is doing her homework instead of taking videos of herself and Sofía isn't running away to the park all the time. I really enjoyed myself here and would definitely recommend anyone to come and help out (: x

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

The work was hard, never to hard, fun and completely satisfying. If you'll ever got the chance to spend some time with these crazy and lovely people, just do it!

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 loved staying here - this is such a warm, welcoming family who gave us lots of great advice about Melbourne.

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.

I know that I have made some life-long friends there. Leaving was so much harder than I ever anticipated. Thank you so much for your generous love and open hearts. I was in the Monastery during the Winter Months. We mostly spent our time making icons, learning English, singing and laughing. It was a joy to be with you. Thank you for having me.

We spent one week in this lovely hostel between sea and Mount Olympus with Peri. He is a very nice and sociable person, and no doubts, an excellent healthy cook :) The hostel is a really warm and cozy place to stay as a workaway or a host ! You will enjoy it for sure ! Even if we were there in the beginning of february, the sun was already shining, we were able to take our first bath of the year in the sea, and helped Peri with the in&outside cleaning/tidying for the coming season ! We highly recommend you to visit .

Paul and Jo are so amazingly friendly and easygoing hosts, and went out of their way to make us welcome at every turn, nothing was too much trouble and they treated us like royalty and made sure we always knew they appreciated our efforts. The girls are fabulous fun and Paul is a great cook too, feeding us so much fab food day after day we now need to seriously diet! Truly fantastic hosts, it was a pleasure to work with them and for them and we will no doubt 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.

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 stayed with Peter and Lya for almost two months in August and September 2012 and it was a great experience. They welcomed me as part of the family and they hosted me in a cozy apartment. 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

My friend Evan and I stayed with the Wallaces for 5 days, and it was a great way to start off our Costa Rican trip. Sharron, Dick and Maia are a great family, and very easy to work for/with. We were fed more than we could eat, although we managed to fit it in, and their knowledge of the country helped us plan our next week out a lot. Many good converstions were had around the table, and I think we solved some major world problems there. The only surprizes were good ones, and I recommend them to anyone in the area.

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!

My boyfriend and I just finished our first workaway experience here and couldn't have loved it more. The location of the hostel itself is breathtaking. From the moment we arrived we felt at home and knew we had found a wonderful place. The owners are both delightful to work with which really makes your stay here very enjoyable. Minca itself is a beautiful little town with many great things to hike to such as waterfalls and swimming holes and is filled with the friendliest people. While we were at Casa Loma it was high season so there were many things to do but also plenty of down time to relax or go exploring. It's hard to say what our favorite part was but if we had to pick one it would have to be the friends we made at Casa Loma that hopefully we will see again when we come back to visit.

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

I had a 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!

The work was hard, but Kirstie was always there to show me how, and it hardly felt like work at all as it was so relaxing in between the vines. The days went so quickly, and the work was always satisfying - one could see and feel the difference one makes immediately. I'm just sad it went too quickly - I am already planning to go back soon.

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

Thank you very much for the wonderful time! Working and living with you has been a very nice and interesting experience and I am very curious what the garden looks like in the summer, so I'll definitely come back! And the food was so amazing, I am already planning on trying to cook lots of it myself! :) Merci beaucoup pour tout!

Nele and Andreas are truly wonderful people. Me and my boyfriend stayed with them for 6 weeks just after Mirthe was born and we are already booking flights to return! They both have very open hearts for their guests, who become their friends within no time. Every day we were served with healthy, very tasty meals, often containing ingredients they have grown in the garden or eggs from the chickens! The way of life in their home is really aspiring. There is no television or radio, which is wonderful! Being as eco-friendly as possible is very important to them, as is their guests and their own well-being. Mostly I spend my time with Nele and the children, as well as looking after the household, in a traditional female role! Nele really gave me a lot of freedom with baby Mirthe. I washed her, changed her and rocked her to sleep, so of course I very much bonded with her. It was so lovely to see her grow and develop so much over just a few weeks. Kamille is adorable too, although it was more difficult to bond with her because of the language barrier. I also did a lot of cooking, cleaning and washing too, as well as occasional work in the garden. The great thing was that we really had a lot of freedom in what we wanted to do on that day. Dave really enjoyed working on the house. For him it was a new and interesting challenge; this type of work is not so typical nowadays! It really is a great opportunity to gain these unique skills. He also got stuck into other jobs like fixing the bicycles; whatever skills you have will always be put to good use. If you are hard-working, don’t mind getting your hands dirty and can work independently then this is for you, but do expect a few splinters along the way! We cannot wait to return! We feel that we really have made life-long friends in Nele and Andreas and are so grateful for our time we spent with them.

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.

I was with Paz and Juan for almost two weeks, it was my first experience like workawayers, and it was great! I spent most of the time gardening and farming, with a expert guide, Paz. She explained me a lot of interesting things on that kind of subjects and others. They are also really good cookers, so I enjoyed the eating time too. It was really a plasure to work, eat and spend time with both of them, for that I hope to be back sometimes. Thank you again and good luck with your dream coming true. See you, Fulvia

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

Absolutely amazing workaway experience, it was my first time using workaway and I didn't really know what to expect, but from the first day to the last I was welcomed and everyone was so nice and helpful. I met some great Workawayers and we had lots of fun. The food cooked in the hotel, was delicious especially the grill night. Of course a special thanks to Sylvia and her family who looked after me for a couple of days while I was near Hamburg. It was such an amazing way to spend my Easter holidays for two weeks.

It was a great fun to make italian pasta from scratch. I will never forgot the taste of fresh made Ricotta cheese. We worked a lot together. I liked that. But we also visited nice villages and the see, places you would never find as a regular tourist. The farm was really, really nice. Watching sun set and sun down was something really special.

The work in the stable was great and it gave me satisfaction. I enjoyed the house, their style of life and generosity, the musical events, their english lessons and conversation! Devon is an unbelievable land, and I hope to return as soon as possible. Really, I miss them very much. I definitely aim to come back here one day. Thank for all!!

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

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.

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 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.

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.

I spent 3 weeks there, and they were extremely kind, generous and wonderful hosts. I felt very comfortable in their house, and the food was great (Susan is a great cook!). The work was fun and enjoyable: help in the garden, cleaning stuff and some sand in the rainy days. Ashburton is a quite village in the Devon countryside, there are a lot of path and hills where you can walk with John's pet Tallullah, the most lovely dog I've ever meet. And if sometimes you need the town life you can easily join the towns of Plymouth and Exeter. Thank you Susan and John.

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.

Words are not enough to describe the wonderful time I spent here. It was like a dream that passed sooooo quickly. Should I begin with the beautiful place where is situated? 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!!!

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.

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.!
