We stayed with Maicon, Ester, and the kids for almost 2 weeks. It was a very heartwarming and inspiring experience being part of a family with a lot of passion for their local communities and their bakery (amazing breads btw!). We helped around the house, played with the kids, cleaned, and cooked. They also showed us around Torres anytime they have the chance to and we can go to the beach which is 10 mins walk away when we are done with work. We were very well taken care for and learned a lot of new things and very thankful for the amazing experience 💕 I hope to see you guys soon, hugs.

We are incredibly grateful to Ester and her beautiful family for letting us be a part of their community, we always felt at home. Working with them has always been a joyful and inspiring moment as playing with the children, learning how to bake, sharing knowledge and experiences. They made sure we were making the most of our time in Torres, leaving us to the best beaches and taking us on their trips in the magnificent nature of the area. We truly hope our paths will cross again soon.

I would have liked to stay longer! These few days in Torres have been emotionally charged. The house is a perfect place to unleash your creativity, the hosts are fabulous and made us feel comfortable from the first minutes. A great way to discover southern Brazil, meet people and create memories. I hope to see you all 4 again one day <3

We only stayed a few days but we had a really cool time. They made us feel like home, showed us around, included us in their daily life and on trips, but also gave us the space we needed to relax and chill alone. The work is also fun! Everything from garden,handyman to looking and learning how they make the bakery stuff :) You can be sure you'll be taken good care of here- and the bread and bakery they make taste amazing !!!! Thank you so much <3

It was a few days of stay but I was surrounded by creative and beautiful souls! It was nice to be in a familial environment again after being away from my own home for quite sometime now. Ester and Maicon have been generous and really nice hosts. It's been amazing as well because my schedule coincided with their son's 6th birthday, and when they had this cool family traveling in a Volkswagen Kombi staying over. I also liked learning about natural fermentation and artisanal baking. How I wish I had more time to immerse myself in the craft. Nevertheless, amor e gratidão! <3
