My partner and I had a very good experience in Achillbills. If you want to improve your English while staying in a place surrounded by outstanding nature, this is the place for you. Although you should take into account that your accommodation will be quite small if shared with other volunteers (especially the bathroom). For us, the best part of the experience were definitely the people. We were lucky enough to meet amazing people who ended up being out friends and with whom we were always laughing. And Ken is a very good person, always worrying about whether you are happy and comfortable.
