This was an incredible experience. I immediately felt at home and Magdalena and Pasquale always ensured I had everything I needed. The work is scattered and not based on a schedule so be ready to help out wherever needed - especially when the kids are around. You get a great sense of the local culture and have the opportunity to meet many amazing people who will welcome you with open arms. Thank you for everything, I can’t wait to come back!

I did not have a positive experience myself. First of all, the host informed me that there will be other people in the guest house but the whole house was empty and at the time there were no guests at all. Even though i agreed to work 5 hours a day I had almost no responsibilities, which seemed weird. I felt uncomfortable especially with the fact that i was completely alone in the middle of nowhere with a middle aged man. Maybe it looks different when there are other guests/volunteers in the house, but for me I didn’t feel fully safe and decided to leave after one day.

My entire experience here was amazing. Everyone is so welcoming, and it couldn’t be in a more beautiful place. You become very connected with local culture, nature, and community. This is a great opportunity for anyone who loves nature, and doesn’t mind a little work. If you are looking to make connections with others, this is a perfect opportunity for you. I cannot thank the hosts enough for my beautiful experience here.

My time at Santa Caterina was truly one-of-a-kind and incredible.
Pasquale, Andrea and Bea are wonderful people who will go above and beyond to ensure your stay is memorable. From the moment I arrived, they made me feel very welcome. They gave us a chance to explore the culture and meet more amazing, open people after the work was done. It was a unique experience that I will be eternally grateful for. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this experience so special, I’ll cherish it forever, Lieselot.

Really unique and enjoyable experience. The concept of time felt a bit different there, as there were no fixed work hours. Instead, there was a bit of help spread out throughout the day, which turned out to be really refreshing and relaxing. I think we ended up working more than the hours requested, but it didn't feel like hard work. Plus, we were one of the first volunteers, so they'll probably figure it out over time.

The hosts were really nice and friendly. They even took us to their "fountain" - the beach or the city - because the area is a bit secluded. But the natural surroundi
