    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We really encourage workaways to become part of the household during their time with us.

    They can learn how to work with gardening and building wooden structures.

    For those with "open mind" the cultural exchange can give them an opinion on life from a completely different point of view.

    Aside from free food and accommodation, We share and learn new things, experiences and ideas with different people that comes along the way and further develop your skills both physical, mental and social, we also offer a family-like bond and memorable lifetime friendships.

    We try to make sure that our workaways are properly looked after and when the weather is suitable we will take them sightseeing to places of local interest.

    We believe our lifestyle provides an ideal escape from hectic working or studying or city lifestyle.
