I enjoyed my time at the project at its fullest. If you need some time to calm down your mind and get in touch with nature (plants and animals) and if you want to get out of busy and loud cities, this is the right place for you! The work was very diverse and i could learn a lot about animals, farming and growing plants. I hope to see you again!

I arrived when they were unbelievably busy with the Villa opening. My duty is to take care website, FB and IG. I usually build websites with WordPress. It's my first time checking website build with Wix, so I have learnt something new too. And I have learnt something while they would like me to check the powerline wifi extender. The weather is very hot, no joke, and if you want to be a volunteer, make sure you can accept insects around you. Luckily, some Italian volunteers usually cook delicious food for all volunteers. And 24-hour hot coffee, the Italian way.

Fascinating place in the middle of the mountains, with very cute animals, very friendly dogs, if you like working on a farm, this is your place.. I am very grateful to have been accepted here, I have met many friends and learned a lot.

Krishna is a sweet soul who was always eager to lend a hand. He wants to be helpful and he approaches the world in such a positive way. He is great with animals and was a very hard worker!



Amazing experience for anyone who wants a place to enjoy nature. Thanks Shawn and Kyle for the experience and help. I will miss the crazy goats hahaha. Good luck with the vilas🤞🏿

The experience is not what appears posted even the host explains a little bit about it beforehand but it's not enough. I would have loved to stay but for health reasons I couldn't continue, however the host was kind of rude to me when I tried to explain my discomfort. I would recommend the place for people who wants to work, not for volunteering. I'm grateful for the opportunity and the hosts are really nice people, they're just stressed with everything they need to do.

Laura, as you are well aware we told you the job you replied to was not available until summer and we asked if you still wanted to come and help on the farm. We made every concession for your allergies and offered you many options. We were more than generous as hosts, with rides, and free scooters. Volunteers work the allotted time, we provide food for three meals a day even on days off (and cooked specifically for your allergies). If you are allergic to dust and pollen I would say that you should know that committing to volunteer at a farm in Spring is just not smart. As hosts, we always try to find ways to make work fun and not too repetitive but we are a working farm and there is work to do. You left us in the lurch at a critical time and sadly many workawayers don't think about the time and effort that goes into host planning and the number of people we have to turn away because our spaces are booked. This is an exchange and we more than held up our part. I hope you found a comfortable place to volunteer that did not affect your seasonal allergies and are enjoying your travels.
