blows my mind what Michele offers to the volunteer, it is a great accommodation, a car, and excellent food (with pizza night every Friday). About the work, it's not that hard, and you have the coffee break between 11, the hours are respected!
The place and region are amazing to explore. Michele always has a good recommendation about where to go and what to do. Thank you for the opportunity, was a great experience!

My experience in the quinta Japonesa was memorable and beautiful. Michelle is an adorable woman full of energy. the work was fair and entertaining, and despite that we had a long time to relax and enjoy the tranquility of the fifth. advice to all this experience

We had a really great time at the Quinta and it was very nice to be so close to nature and to Michelle and her kids.
The place's much more amazing than what we were expecting; days at Quinta Japonesa were really easygoing and we learned a lot.
Because of the high season, most of the days we had tasks to do, but we had breaks all over the day, and a couple of free days too.
I'm sure this will not be the last time for me at Quinta Japonesa, it was an amazing experience and I learned a lot working next to Michelle.

Michelle is a lovely warm woman with a big heart. The Quinta is a beautiful place surrounded by nature, where you will be waking up to birds singing outside:-). It's a lovely place to stay. I was here when there were no guests so it was quiet. I could use my new digital marketing skills to try to improve some texts on web & platforms where Quinta is advertised. I also helped with other tasks when needed. I really felt like a part of the family as we were cooking and eating lunch together every day. I'm very grateful for this time and Michelle and would strongly recommend volunteering here.

This was an amazing experience for me. We weren't able to enjoy the good weather as much, but then, we were able to find some stuff that needed to be done inside! Michelle is a very welcoming, friendly, open minded and a social person! She allowed me to learn a lot of things and to develop skills I will for sure use in my future. I felt like at home thanks to how hospitable Michelle was :-) I would recommend this experience for everyone who is willing to help and to work on the beautiful and relaxing Quinta Japonesa.
