There is something for everyone in Sammatz whether you'r interested to fully immerse yourself in a community close to nature or just looking for a break from the city. This place is absolutely beautiful and full of amazing people. No two days are the same as schedueles vary everyday, allowing you to learn about gardening,animal care, construction, cheese making.. The facilities are great, you have access to unlimited food plus lunch and cake in the afternoon. Rooms are shared but very comfy. I couldn't recommend this place more and hope to be back soon !!

I wasn't expecting this experience to be as BIG as it was. Sammatz is a beeeautiful place and its surroundings too. It has a praiseworthy organization. They've the best structure! It's amazing how everything works so well there. They'll teach you whatever you feel eagle to learn. You'll have endless choices of what to work with. I'll miss my goaties and sheep forever. Thank you so much for the opportunity, guys! Thank you for being such kind, welcoming and understanding human beings ❤

Living in Sammatz is really, really special, you get to meet people from all over the world, you practice english, spanish and german, you learn from the locals to share, to care about people, to listen and what it really means to respect each other. Many times I felt like I was in another world, the place is so beautiful and well taken care of, the gardens and lake look perfect. In Sammatz I made friends I know I'll have forever, this place will always be in my heart. Please, if you have the opportunity go! :D

Sammatz is a very special place. I have met amazing and very interesting people from all across the world many of whom I consider very good friends and I have learned a lot of new skills. I decided to extend my stay because of the current Covid pandemic and I couldn't think of a better place to be during this time :)
This is also a great place to practice your Spanish!

The most valuable lesson I left Sammatz with is about growth. Just like how we worked together and planted seeds that grew into beautiful and rich plants and flowers, I found myself growing as a person connected with the natural reality around me during the month I spend in Sammatz.
