I had an amazing time in tolvso! The working hours were always respected and I especially liked the daily morning walks with the dogs!
The lake nearby is incredible just like the nature in general.
Additionally the stay definitely helped me get more confident and openminded on a personal level.
Thank you Fridus and Roswitha for hosting me!

I couldn't imagine a better first volunteering experience!! Fridus and Roswitha are the kindest people and have the loveliest dogs. The tasks were easy and pleasant. We had a lot of free time too which we usually spent in the 'living room' in the restaurant, such a cosy place!! I already miss this place and the people so much!

It was a very great time. I felt very comfortable from the beginning and it stayed that way. Fridus and Roswitha are great hosts. They are very friendly, have everything you need and think about which tasks suit whom best.
The tasks were varied and well organised. In addition, they were usually discussed the evening before so that you knew what kind of tasks were coming up.
All in all, I can only thank Fridus and Roswitha for the great time!

I honestly love this place! I had a great time in Söderbärke :) Roswitha and Fridus are absolutely lovely people and you can talk to them about any problem you have. Their supportive and very understanding. The work was amazing, the work in the kitchen a bit challenging on busy days, but otherwise it was very relaxed. I learned quite a few things there and meet nice people :D The dogs are totally adorable and very cute. We slept in a caravan and was very warm and comfy in there. All over I can only recommend staying there relax in the nature and meet great people!

Roswitha and Fridus are part of my heart, it is very lovely when people you don't know open the door of theire home, like they have done . because stay in theire house in not only a world packer experience, is like find a new family, and when you are so far away from your home, in my case because I am from Argentina, it is really nice and make me feel very thankful. the work you have to do it is always a pleasure because you had never feel like a hard work,it is totally the opposite, I am always did felt that I were part of a team.
If you like the animals you will love this place.
