Lizzy is a great host. I have learned a lot from her about horses and gardening. I could ask her about the work and the equipment and she had explain me all the things until I get it. She gave me a lot of food and ask me often if I need something.
And she gave me enough free time for enjoying the landscape.
On her farm it was an amazing experience.👍🏻

My experience in Lizzie's farm was a bittersweet experience. In one hand, the work to do was easy and not so hard (in my chase, clean the place where the horses live and prune a garden), Lizzie provide us all the food we need, I had a private room and she help me to improve my English. In the other hand, I finally leave the farm earlier because in sometimes she didn't speak well to me and I didn't like some manners. I talked with her about this and it repeated again and finally I told to her my decision to leave the farm. She didn't give time for make a plan and I had to leave the same day.

Carlos was not a compatible helper in my farm, I do not yell at people, however as a retired teacher, I am assertive, and my British voice is strong. I do not behave like a sweet old woman, to a helper who is overly demanding, and has no manners or understanding of discussion or a different point of view to his own?

Lizzie is really nice and heartwarming! She has a lovely place prepared for helpers and she was really concerned about my wellbeing and comfort.
This was a great opportunity to improve my language skills and learn how the countryside life is like :) Don't expect this to be a luxurious place, it's just a simple, quiet and comfy farm on a beautiful mountain.
I really enjoyed my time there, thank you, Lizzie <3

Lizzie is wonderful. On her farm there are always tasks to do, she always explains them patiently.
The farm is in the countryside and is great for being with animals and nature.
Of course I recommend it
