    Description

    For the last 11 years we have had a lot of voluntes every summer helping us.
    We are two sisters who live in an old farmhouse on a small island - Drejo in the archipelago - on the farm we have a cafe and a museum. We have a very relaxed life here, every body knows each other. It is a safe place. In the summertime we have a lot of tourists and it is a fun life if you want to meet a lot of happy people.
    The must impotant thing for us is to get help in the afternoon. Some times we have big groups or music in the garden. We work seven days a week, that´s way we have three or five girls at the time.
    It is import for us that you a great time together with the other volunteers and the young people on the island.
    Many of the volunteers are coming back to visit us year after year and this year we have one of the girls from last year who is coming back to work in summertime.

    Your work will be mostly to serving for the guests and dishwashing and easier gardening.
    You have to work in weekends.
    Some days can be very hard there can come 200 people for lunch and coffee. But other days it will be easy and there will be a lot of time to meet other people or what you like to do.

    You can get to Drejø - first by train fra Copenhagen central stationIn to Nyborg, and then the bus Svendborg and the ferry to Drejø. The name of the ferry is Højestene.
    In the middle of the South Funen archipelago
    lies Drejø with its 75 odd inhabitants. It is an impressive
    trip through Svendborgsund and past Skarø and Hjortø.

    Drejø is a grand scenic experience with a rich bird life
    and a varied terrain. The island offers good swimming and
    angling opportunities.

    Drejø By is an idyllic village with several pretty half-timbered
    houses and –farms that survived a destructive fire in 1942.

    The island has a craftware exhibition, restaurant, grocery,
    camping site, school camp and a course centre. Also apart
    from the new marina –where the ferry ties up – Drejø Gammel Havn
    originally a natural harbour and the island’s sole harbour until the ferry harbour
    was built in 1905.
