The Experience

I need help with some repairing and to take care of the garden, harvest vegetables - when it is time collect apples - and make forest work. Some help with neighbours with their problems, or have some freedom and peace by doing other things around. Design nice pictures and letters for to make the building nice. I make also a stage in my farmerhouse. If you have any other ideas, tell me! =)

Alexander is a really good host, he's always worried about you.
The working is really nice, if it's hard or you have any problems, you can ask him and figure out how to deal with it.
The area is stunning, inside the nature, I felt in peace during my stay.
I highly recommend this experience and for sure I'll come back :)

I had such a great time with Alexander. Sometimes the work can be tiring but the hours of work are fair. The house is cosy and Alexander make everything to make you feel comfortable at the place, he also is always open to chat, give you kitchen lessons and bring you to the best local events (with really good beer), making you feel inserted into the local culture. It was a chill time during my journey which I was needed, I'm going to miss the German lifestyle and the people that I met there. I'm thankful for all this experience! I hope to visit you soon!

I really enjoyed having the opportunity of helping Alex, he is so nice and he really enjoy to learn about all the cultures that he receive. The work is easy and he teach you every time he has the opportunity. It is a peaceful place to spend time.

Staying at Alexander's was one of the best stays I had as a volunteer. This was a very good experience although it was my first I enjoyed it to the max.

Stay with Alex in the Strawhotel for sure is one of the best experiences I have in my life, the work is very easy and knowledge, Alex explain why plans do kind of things, in the kitchen you learn how to use many spices from all around the world, he accepted different cultures and only ask to respect the house rules, that are more than fares.

For sure is not a place to party and that what makes the place even better, is a place to learn about culture, plants and history. That is the best school you can find.
