I stayed at the camping for 2 weeks. The tasks were not that hard. It was nice to have a variety in tasks. Walking the dogs was part of a daily routine. It was a nice way to start the day. Lunch and dinner were taken care of and the meals were really tasty. I spend most of my days with John and he is a very kind and funny host. Sara is friendly as well. The camping is located quite remotely, but there's enough to do in the surroundings. I would recommend this place.

I had a lovely time at Camping the camping, many thanks to Sara & John: I highly appreciate how you welcomed me in your home! The week that I spent there was very relaxing since it was not the high season anymore, so sometimes I would have liked to work a little more but there was simply not a lot to do. I would definitely do this again, it's truly a magical place. :)

My experience here was really nice! I had the opportunity to help with the content creation for the place which was really cool and fun for me. They are using some permaculture principles in their way of life and I like that they care so much about the environment ♻️ I have learned about different things like homemade wine & beer and we even made beer from scratch🍻 The dogs and cats are so cute and friendly and we started our mornings with taking the dogs for a walk in the beautiful mountains with John and learning about the area and the plants around🪴 Thank you for the experience !

Please read Maya's review comments from me as they were meant for you. Sorry again



This was my first experience and I couldn't be happier that I chose the camping. Sara and John made me feel at home from day one. the place is beautiful, the contact with nature and animals is incredible. The work to be done is not difficult. I'm going to miss walking the dogs in the morning. thanks sarah and john. It's highly recommended 😊

I loved my time at camping the camping! The work was easy and enjoyable. Most days I walked the dogs with John or Sara in the morning and did some gardening and/or cleaning after. John and Sara are lovely, kind hosts.
