My experience in the farm was absolutely amazing. this was my second volunteering experience and I highly recommend it for travellers who want to get in touch with nature, like peace & quiet, live in a small sweet community and want to practice some spanish. all the tasks were exactly like communicated beforehand. I grew there alot, with being mindful to the people and in nature, about horses and donkeys and especially with my spanish.. the people i was working with filled my days with love, warmth and laughter. i felt so welcomed and valued. thank you for this big opportunity!

If you're lucky to get approved to volunteer in the farm you probably gonna have an amazing time, just like me. There I could make a lot of friends, enjoy the amazing landscape and delicious food provided. Maria do everything she can to make all the team together as a family and making sure that everyone is having a amazing time. I highly recommend if you're looking for a comfortable, fun and beautiful place to be in, and also learn a lot working in the farm, kitchen or stables.

I got to spend an incredible summer , with all it's authenticity of rural living in a community. The people were just like a family, the exchange of cultures from all around the world was unique and hard to put in words. Connectivity to nature was like a soul-vacation, I personally grew by living in the community. The only bummer was I didn't feel like a part of the team in the stables, only caused by one guy who had no interest in me as a person. Unfortunately he was in charge of delegating the volunteer work. He ignored me despite I was putting in effort with my Spanish.

The best volunteer experience ever!! Maria and Adrian were extremely welcoming and made us feel a part of the nido family. The hours of work are respected and doesn't feel like work at all. Overall an amazing experience, could not recommend this enough.
