The Experience

Some days we have a lot of guests in the restaurant, especially the month of December. A lot of dishes for the buffet have to be made and that asks for a lot of hands. And when everything flows... it's a joy to be part of it!

Volunteering in Tolvsbo was a great experience. I met a wonderful team with which I worked smoothly and shared a lot of memorable moments! The whole place is surrounded by nature and right by the lake, although is a bit far from town, you'll have bikes to reach it. The main task is working in the restaurant, in the weekends and on festivities could be intense but the hosts will offer a shift system or more days off. Sometimes there could be little disagreements but after knowing each other for a while you'll know how to collaborate.In general I had a good time!!

I had the BEST experience in my life! Roswitha and fridus Are the kindest they opened their home and heart and made me feel so welcome! The place is so beautiful and calm, right for people who love rural places and nature. The work was really easy and well organized, most of the day I had free time to do whatever was on my mind like taking the bike or going to the lake. the highlight was being with the sweetest dogs I was lucky to arrive in time for the period with puppies I definitely coming back! thank you for everything roswitha and fridus 🤍

I stayed a month in Sweden. Work hours are respected, can be more with the restaurant but it can be compensated by more days off. It's in the middle of the nature, not so much to do around specially when the weather is bad. When it's sunny, you can go explore with the bikes. Overall it was a good experience 👏🏽

I had a great time in Sweden ! It's a really polyvalent volunteering. You can do kitchen work, paint, clean, do outside work. Work is hard when the restaurant is open during easter. You work all day, you don't have a lot of time to take a break. Otherwise the restaurant is open on the week-end and it's calm. It's an experience close to the nature, far from everything. You have bikes at your disposal to go around. Unfortunately, I had a disagreement with Fridus. He apologized for it and I appreciate it. I've met nice volunteers and learned a lot. Thank you !

First of all: this is not a guest house anymore! Only a restaurant. I enjoyed my time there a lot and it was a really good first volunteering experience! I met amazing other volunteers. You will feel very welcome there and learn a lot from Fridus & Roswitha. The place is surrounded by beautiful nature with a lake. The tasks are usually easy and vary a lot, but on the weekend it's mainly kitchen work, which is very stressful on special occasions! On Easter we worked more hours without real breaks, but we had more free days after. All in all, i had a great time and i am very thankful<3.
