Sammatz is a welcoming and colorful place Where you meet a lot of new people and have the opportunity to make close friends🫶🏼 if you ask for it, you can try out many different jobs, and then you can ask to be put in those you like the most:) food is plenty and delicious, accommodation is great and the surroundings are calming. Have to come back in summer to see the garden I bloom! Recommended!!

Sammatz is the best possible place and volunteer! It was, without a doubt, the best time of my life! The people of Sammatz are amazing, warm and welcoming. The food is amazing, delicious and unlimited, you feel free to eat and perform all your tasks because Sammatz's structure is impeccable! All places are very cozy, I loved every part of Sammatz. I always felt very comfortable eating, bathing, washing my clothes or anything else. It was the best experience of my life to work with all the people and volunteers there, all the services become fun and cool to do ❤️

I couldn't explain the feeling about staying in a place like Sammatz. First, you think it's just another regular volunteering. However, with time, you get to discover a place where you can call home, people you can call family. If you are looking for a place to improve yourself, in every way possible, here it's the place. I won't say more, you have to see for yourself, build your own experience, i guarantee that you will not be disappointed. This is home❤️

Sammatz teaches you or tries to teach you "indirectly" to leave your ego behind. It shows you a new way of living, where everyone helps everyone else, and where the work you do, no matter how small it may seem, contributes to keeping the community together and functional. In deed, a full-fledged humility cure.

My experience at Sammatz was great! Even though I stayed only for 3 weeks and a half, I really loved the community, the laboratory's tour and the philosophy of the place. Most of all I really enjoyed working in Peronnik, where I really felt like I found my place (even for a very short time 🥲) I will miss all the kind and beautiful people I've meet here at the community , they will all remain in my heart ♥️
