I applied for this experience with the idea of staying 6 weeks, and ended up staying more than 10, which I think that in itself is a testament to how much I enjoyed it. Debbie, Daniel and Esme totally make you feel welcomed and at home. Plus, the place is gorgeous, I had a private room all for myself, and they are really generous providing you with everything you will need. I also had the best time with the other volunteers!
I only wouldn't recommend it to loners, or people with other projects that need plenty of alone time.
Thank D,D &E you for everything shared and learnt. Until next time

My stay was amazing!Debbie, Daniel and Esme make this place feel like home.They always make sure that we have fun, this place is definitely social,lots of lovely volunteers, and they often organize movie nights or dinner together.Also I had my own cozy room. Not only is it beautiful and fun here, but it is also a great place to stay during covid.They make sure everything is safe and there are plenty of fun outdoor activities to do. :) I learned so much here, from gardening to cooking amazing vegan food. I will definetly come back and highly recommend this place to others!!

It's not about the place, it's not about the work, it's not about the food, it's about the hosts: Debbie, Daniel and Esme made my experience special.
The rest was lovely but just a plus. They made me feel like I found a new family and a new home and that's why I'm coming back someday.
I recommend this experience regardless of your age or your passions.

I would also like to talk about the great travelers I met but they won't be there.
If you want to find great people go there and be great , because that part of the story depends on you.
You are the travelers.

What are you looking for ?

Having fun? Living with a lovely family? Met new friends from around the world? Learning more? about food, gardening, juicing and English ? Playing music ? Living in peace with nature ?

Then Ticheville is the right place for you. Just an advice, 6 weeks is too short.. don’t plan anything so you can stay longer ☺️ enjoy

We had a wonderful time in this place, due to the pandemic Debbie and Daniel welcomed us with open arms, I learned a lot about gardening, cooking new dishes, and I greatly improved my English, it was an incredible experience that I will take to life. Thanks
