We can only host female helpers. A room in the house with its own lock and 3 good meals a day. Non smokers only. We host 1 or 2 workawayers at a time but not couples or friends and not from the same country so you have to use English all the time and learn a lot quicker!
We have had many volunteers and enjoyed there company and look forward to many more. Also been a volunteer in Poland and really enjoyed it. It is our ambition to host helpers and guests from all over the World and surprisingly we are well on our way to doing so. We are now welcoming back some of our previous helpers and there families and catching up with them, one helper is fetching her new husband and it is great to see them all again. Trying to live a life where time and money and less important and good company and new experiences are. Keep travelling , keep smiling !
