It was a beautiful experience! I always felt very comfortable with Johan and he was kind and very patient with me to help me understand! His Spanish is very good :) I enjoyed the walks with the kids! The nature walks and the beautiful landscapes of the place! Very comfortable room, comfortable and plenty of food! The quiet work in the garden sowing a variety of seeds! We put tiles in a bathroom! I learned many things and shared very nice moments with all the people of the place! It is a perfect place to connect with nature and enjoy my own company! Thanks for everything Johan! You in my heart!

I had a wonderful experience. The place is big, comfortable, quiet and close to nature, around there is a river, lake and many trails for biking and walking as well. The host is a wonderful person, polite, helpful and taught me a lot about nature, about social impact, he was patient with me. There's a lot to do at Alt Schule so you can contribute what you identify with. You can to play with the children, cook, clean, work on the house repairs, take care of the animals and the garden... we also got together to socialize, have fun, all in good mood and good music.

Host is kind, flexible and easy going, The farm has many interesting people stopping by through the days. The set up is a bit hippy and freestyle so there isn't a set schedule for daily task or projects. I mostly worked in the garden, the build interior that people live is in rough shape, similar to a squat. There is a woodshop there and lot of project that could be done if one is very handy. But there is a lack of clear focus, leadership and group collaboration to orient the task. Often I felt as if I didnt know what to work on. Experience can be a very relaxed escape from urban scene .
