Apart from the lovely staff and ambiance, this experience allowed me to sharply increase my cooking skills while giving me the unique opportunity to converse with people from all over the world. The working schedule is balanced; your weeks are split, typically with 3-5 days of free time in between group sessions, so you'll be able to explore different cities, practice new skills, or just take some downtime on the grounds playing with the cats and meditating. To sum up, I absolutely recommend the Center. Also, if you sign up quickly, I left some truffle honey in the kitchen ;)

The Center is an awesome place filled with positive energy and surrounded by nature, I met great people there. The host, Dieter was very kind and friendly making sure we were all having a good time, I also got along well with the other volunteer, in our spare time, we visited other cities. The tasks were simple and there was always room to be creative and develop some new skills. I definitely recommend this experience if you are looking for some peace of mind, to slow down and reconnect with yourself.

The Center is a beautiful place surrounded by nature. The sound of the birds is incredible. I was very well received by everyone, the tasks are simple - they just demand care, and there's enough free time to visit other cities, if you want it. Monique is a lovely woman and you can see her beautiful soul in every detail of the place.

This was my first volunteering experience, which brought me much more than I could ever have expected. It feels magical, as you slowly get emersed in the daily tasks, create deep connections with your colleagues and share each others experiences in the most welcoming and family-like environment one could possibly hope for. Despite your current situation or who you are, here you can feel free to search and discover or improve, whatever your cureent goals are. The team is very communicative and helpful, always making sure that everyone is feeling okay. Much Love!! :)
