It is one of the places that I really like. People are very friendly and are always aware of how you feel. The place is very big and beautiful. The facilities are very comfortable and the food is great. I take beautiful moments, friendships and new things that I learned. Would return without a doubt.

An absolutely gorgeous location and wonderful people to work with. We work hard but still have fun. I actually have not left yet, I am waiting out the Coronavirus situation here and I could not think of a better place to do so.

Being in Sammatz was great since I saw a really large community of people and volunteers working in a relaxed and fun environment.

I was also shocked since some people come without speaking English or German and, somehow, they become part of the team, wow!

Certainly, I will come back to see how big the project will become 😊
