The project is lovely place in the middle of nowhere. I had very good time in here. We were doing lot of things So the work is different every day. Fred is a very nice person he helped us with everything what we needed. We had a lot of fun with him and also with two amazing brazilian guys that we met. Fred is doing the best beer in the world and every month he does pizza party in Castelo. He was taking us to a lot of events around (like beer garden or party of watching stars). He is doing all od this fantastic things alone so sometimes he is a bit messy but who is not.Thanks for everything

My first experience and it was lovely! The place itself is beautiful and you can also explore all the nature around. Frederic is really nice person and you can talk with him about everything. Also there are 3 lovely cats with you and 1 cute dog in Fred's house. Sometimes it's little chaotic or you work little more, than 5 hours, but the jobs are very interesting and funny, so it's cool. Go there:))

It was my first volunteering experience on this platform and I highly recommend it! I learnt a lot about handyman work, myself and how to live closer to the nature. Fred, his family, friends and other volunteers were welcoming and we had great conversations during lunches, parties, small trips and work. Also I had a lot of time for myself. I hope I come again for some workshops one day!

I left earlier so I can't give a good opinion. It rained too much and you couldn't work outside. The host told me that for what I was going to learn it was not a good date, so I left earlier.
