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!

Amazing! For those who want to experience a once-in-a-lifetime experience, this is the ideal place. From the friendliness of the Hosts to the tenderness of the dogs everything went perfectly with the supposed. Furthermore, all the volunteers with whom I shared different moments were always attentive and friendly. For sure, I would like to repeat this unique experience!!

I've had an amazing month in Tolvsbo with Roswitha & Fridus, all the volunteers I've met and, of course, the amazing 6 cute and nice dogs. I'm so grateful for this unique experience. The surroundings are really beautiful and magical. The main tasks when the restaurant is not open for guests are quite varied. We can help Fridus with outside work and help Roswitha to prepare food in the kitchen. You will learn everything in a few days if you have the desire to learn. The food is delicious. We always have coffee and tea. I had the pleasure of kayaking and cycling on my days off. Tack så mycket!

I've had the most amazing month staying with Roswitha and Fridus! They're lovely people with a lot of patience. The dogs were absolutely adorable and I really enjoyed walking them. The rest of the work was also fun, definitely when I could do it with the other volunteers. I've met great people and felt really welcome in their home :) I've learned a lot about myself and in general and would immediately go back if I could!

I had an amazing month with Roswitha and Fridus! They are very kind and calm people and I'm so grateful for the time we spent together with the other volunteers and of course the dogs! The surrounding forest and the lake is absolutely beautiful and a great place to relax, get in touch with nature and live a simple life. When the restaurant is closed the volunteers mainly help with taking care of their 6 (at the time) dogs, walking them etc. and also helping with small tasks like cooking dinner, preparing things for the restaurant and helping with some outside tasks. Tak for alt!

The experience was very meaningful for me. It's a beautiful,cozy place where I met lovely people and lovely dogs! I think that the work depends on the season you are coming because when the restaurant is open, work is very different and can be a bit more stressful. I came in a season where the restaurant was closed so we cared a lot for the dogs and did some restaurant preparations… besides. What I really appreciated was that we could go in the kitchen take/make food whenever we wanted to so It felt like being home. Altogether was it a nice experience for me, I recommend it!
