I really enjoyed my stay in Tolvsbo, it was an amazing experience. Roswitha and Fridus were both really kind and welcoming as well as Swante, Rävi, Ylva and Björne !!! The Place is amazing, surrounded by beautiful lakes and forests with great sunsets most of the nights! The work in the restaurant was great fun, i learned many kitchen skills from Roswitha and we always had very good food :) In my freetime i enjoyed going for swims in the lake, cycle, bake or spending time with other volunteers. I will miss the dogs and everything!! thanks a lot, i had a really good time!!!

My stay at the guest house was perfect! Fridus and Roswita were not just welcoming, but genuinely kind-hearted, patient and loving ! The tasks assigned were fair and manageable, allowing me to contribute without feeling overwhelmed and the working hours were respected. The serene countryside is beautiful and the place is quiet and resourceful. I 100% recommend going to the guest house! <3

I had such an amazing time here with Roswitha and Fridus. They are lovely people and very welcoming. The surrounding area is beautiful and peaceful. During my stay I helped to prepare and cook food but also walk the dogs which are very friendly and cute. I learned a lot of different things there, both about myself and how to manage a restaurant . It was really enriching ! In addition to that, the volunteers that I met there were very friendly and had much fun together. I would definitely recommend this place ! Thank you all for this amazing and unforgettable experience :)

Had a great time staying with Fridus and Roswitha. Learnt a lot from the both of them; in construction and food prep/service, respectively. Expectations are clear and reasonable. Food was very good. The animals are very friendly with great personalities. Will miss this place, the hosts and the animals for sure

I absolutely loved my time in Söderbärke and highly recommend applying for this experience. During my stay here I helped to prepare and cook food, assist with DIY tasks and walk the cute dogs. Roswitha and Fridus are very kind and patient and I loved spending time with them and have learned heaps. The rural setting is beautiful, the accommodation is very comfortable and the food is superb. The other volunteers we met were very friendly and added to the overall inviting feel of the environment. I really didn't want to leave and hope to travel back again one day!
