A Casa Ecológica Paraty is a wonderful place, great facilities, beautifully decorated and super peaceful. Lena is super chilled and trusting, leaving worldpackers to set their own hours, therefore the work is suited to someone with initiative and autonomy. But there's also opportunities to socialise with other worldpackers, the host and guests, we shared a lovely meal together! The hours leave plenty of time to explore the city of Paraty, and to enjoy the relaxed surroundings of the house.

A Casa Ecológica é um lugar muito confortável e aconchegante. Lena foi super atenciosa e respeitou as atividades descritas na oferta de trabalho voluntário. Os horários de trabalho foram bastante flexíveis e dentro do combinado. A Casa Ecológica ainda tem muito a contribuir para Paraty e para os turistas e foi muito bacana ajudar a Lena a construir esse sonho e desenvolver o espaço.

Experiência inigualável. A Casa Ecológica é confortável, fica perto de tudo e a jornada de trabalho é flexível e justa. Lena é uma anfitriã simpática e muito correta ao cumprir os acordos de trabalho. Sua participação no grupo de maracatu acaba aproximando os packers da cena cultural de Paraty, enriquecendo a vivência ainda mais. Foram 3 semanas renovadoras em minha vida, espero que outras pessoas possam viver experiências como a minha nesse lugar especial.

I have a guest house in the front of my property (I live in the back ) that I rent out on Airbnb and other sites. I am slowly incorporating ecological principals into the property and home with the intention of not only offering a more ecological experience for guests but also with the idea of creating a space that can be a model for other residents in terms of applying permaculture and ecological concepts to the urban area. Volunteers will be...
