Pillapalu Forest Retreat

We are, or will be, setting an example how forest owners can produce revenue without cutting down trees. Our services and products will be replicable and help protect forests.

We are super friendly if you are :) We have traveled all over the world and so understand the needs of travelers and volunteers. We are a small family business, including Cookie & Poppy (the dogs), plus some friends help out now and then.

Foi a minha primeira experiência na plataforma e já achei incrível! Fui recebido muito bem, e me adaptei rápido a rotina. Aprendi bastante, conheci novas comidas e lugares incríveis próximo à residência. Jamais esquecerei os lagos gelados, Miabel e sua timidez, Josep e seus legos, Birgit e sua simpatia, Robin e suas piadas, Pup e sua doçura, Coockie e suas expressões e claro, a nossa grande habilidade em escolher bons filmes. Obrigado por tudo, espero ver todos novamente um dia.

Thank you :) Come back again Kevin when you are ready for rolling around in the snow and ice after a forest sauna :)

Pillapalu was a great volunteer experience. You will be submerged in the Estonian forest so if you are looking for some peace and quiet then this is the place for you. The tasks were varied and never too demanding, you are encouraged to be self motivated. There are lakes and hikes nearby if you like to explore in your free time. Birgit, Robin and the kids are all wonderful and they have a great life story to tell. I really enjoyed cooking for the group and having family dinners, movie nights and a few visits to the lakes for cold water swim. Thanks for the opportunity guys I loved it!!!!

Definitivamente una de las experiencias más bonitas y enriquecedoras de nuestras vidas!!!Robin y Birgit fueron los mejores anfitriones que pudimos tener, y no podemos estar más agradecidos con ellos!!. El lugar es precioso, la casa es enorme,
súper limpia y ordenada. Ellos son un amor, encantadores, nos trataron como a dos hijos más. ¿La comida? Riquísima y muuuuy abundante. Tienen una sauna Preciosa en medio del bosque, dos perros 🐶 super friendly. Aprendimos, reímos, charlamos, y conocimos gente increíble. No se puede pedir más! 100% recomendable!!!!
Volveremos en invierno😝😝

Really good experience. We have spent here 10 days and it was awesome. We learn lots of things, we eat and cook whatever we want, the tasks are so easy but interesting. The house is big and clean and Robin and Birgit are awesome. We wait you in La Rioja to taste the real calderete and tortilla ;-)

This was my first experience with worldpackers and it was great! Birgit and Robin are welcoming and friendly. The dogs are the sweetest:)). You can enjoy a sauna and great food, cooked by Robin. There were four other volunteers at the same time and we really connected and learned a lot from eachother. 🦋 I got the chance to draw a painting on a wall, so i really recommend this place, if you like to do art. 🎨
The other tasks were mostly painting, cleaning, walking the dogs, cooking, or helping with other tasks.
I had a wonderful time and can just recommend to stay there!🤍
