I had a great experience at Alex's farm. He's very kind, thoughtful and an easygoing person. We talked and shared a lot of things about our cultures and countries. The tasks at the farm were very easy and you can do multiple things there.
I hope I can visit him again soon :)

I can say staying in Alex's house is like finding a new family, with new friends and a host with a very big heart. Alex is always ready to talk with you, show and teach you German culture, language, stories... he never refuses to talk to you.
The place is so quiet, perfect to disconnect. Sometimes you can find it isolated, but the next town (3km) is well conected by train to all Germany. There are bikes to explore the surroundings. There is also a lake to take a bath near. One hour far from Stuttgart, a city I've enjoyed so much.
I totally recomend to go; in my case, I know I'll return.
