    Taking part of our way of living may give you a new perspective for life. We don't need so many fancy things to make us happy, being able to live simply life is more rewarding for us. Being able to maintain our partly sustainable life gives us great satisfaction and this is what we have to offer to workawayer. After hard day of working nothing feels better than sauna and good meal!

    One more thing, we have hosted individuals, friends and couples and we feel people traveling alone are usually more open to new experiences and learning other ways of living. We prefer individual volunteers for this reason. We have hosted several years now and during this time we have learned lots about hosting as well. We have many good memories and friendship with our workawayers :)

    Anna did last year couple of workaway posts. After experiening ”the other side” of this thing, gave me confidence that we are doing many things right and also we have somethings we can be better as well. Both posts we very good experiences in different ways. I volunteered in France.

    Daily routines takes part of every day, preparing sauna, hot water, firewoods, cleaning... Our way of living is simple but requires attention every single day. No (bucket) shower is possible to have before water has been heated and no dishes can not be washed without hot water etc.

    We need also help with berries/mushrooms/wild herbs/firewoods for the long winter ahead. Sometimes it is hard work: heat, mosquitos, rain etc. Sometimes it is possible to take a swimm in nice cool lake near by after swetting.

    Based on our experience, we'd like to remind any new workaway-candidates that unfortunatelly this place is NOT a hotel. E.g you make a dinner - you clean up the kitchen after that and make sure the place is comfortable for next users and things like that. Taking part of daily routines is not included in working hours.

    If you don't understand some house-routines/tasks FEAR NOT to ask.

    If you're tired long time traveller without motivation - kindly pass this place.

    Having mental or fysical disabilities? Read our profile carefully one more time and consder if you can and are willing to send us application. Work is physical, you will get hot and tired sometimes.
    Another issue can be loneliness. Our village is tiny and sometimes you have to spend some days without meeting many people. Can you handle it?

    We drive to local villages when needed, couple of times a week usually. In Savitaipale there is beautiful lake Kuolimo and very nice beach and in the town center there are some sights to be seen and experienced. Closer to us there is a unique swimming place also, worth seeing. In Savitaipale there is a gym, tennis etc. Nearby also yoga once a week.
