Fridus and Roswitha are both gems! The lake is beautiful! The food is tasty and dogs are so fluffy and nice!

I spent two months in this beautiful place completely surrounded by nature. The restaurant is in the countryside of sweden and there are not a lot of social events to visit, but the lake and the volunteers make it such I nice place to stay! The working hours are really respected and there's flexibility on days off. They offer rides to the supermarket and the train station if needed and are also very worried about our well being. The work in the restaurant can be very stressful at times, so it's nice to be able to work under pressure and not take things personally. Over all, great experience!

I have learned new things and I also practised my English as I wanted to do. The family was nice with all of us. I enjoyed working as a waitress and all the guests were so kind and very polite. I loved the volunteers and working with the dogs. The landscapes were incredible. My expectatives have been covered. I had a nice experience and I totally recommend it!

This was my first volunteering experience and I don't think I could've chosen better. Both Fridus and Roswitha are very welcoming, caring and made me feel right at home. I was surprised how beautiful the surroundings were. The nature there is simply breathtaking even during more rainy and cloudy days. Work is easy and enjoyable although sometimes can be a bit tiring. During 'rush hours' in the restaurant, work in the kitchen can be a little stressful and there can be some disagreements but they are quickly resolved. I will miss everyone very much and hope I will come here again!!

An amazing experience. I felt at ease with Roswitha&Fridus from the beginning and also with the other volunteers. I had a great time with the volunteers, I made a lot of inside-jokes and I felt very welcome from the first day. Roswitha&Fridus are very friendly, always respect the working hours and care about you. And the dogs are lovely. I was lucky enough to been there when was a litter of puppies that had to be moved from one garden to another, fed them and when they grew up, given their first walks. I will miss them very much. I would repeat the experience without hesitation.
