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
