The Experience

There is always a lot of recurring and entertaining work to do around our place, so we sure need help. We can get an extra hand in restoring walls and cleaning the small houses, for example. I hope to meet people who love to stay, to help and to enjoy the nature. We live in the south of Italy and are blessed to have this beautiful place. The shifts are in the mornings, so we have the rest of the day free. No drugs, please.

Staying with Iris was one of the most brilliant things I have ever done, the accommodation is rustic but lovely, the area is stunning with views over the town and over to the sea just from your front door. The work is interesting and fun and the hours are very well respected, staring at 8 and ending at exactly 1, with a break in between. She never asks you to do anything you are uncomfortable with and is truly an incredible host. Iris is one of the nicest people I have ever had the good fortune to meet and is always up for helping you if you need something. Thank you so much for having me.

My two weeks with Iris flew by! I would have absolutely loved to stay longer, this was an unbelievable experience. Isca is a picturesque little town and the view from the farm is incredible! I loved my stay in one of the cottages, although it is winter, the cold is not a problem; the fireplace warms things up wonderfully. I enjoyed every single task, most was outdoors, which was lovely! I am in awe of Iris. She is an energetic, powerful and kind superhero!! She has a wonderful family and two precious dogs- I wished I packed Kronos in my backpack! It was incredible, I hope to be back soon! <3

Iris was a fantastic host and made my time here very enjoyable! She's the best and goes out of her way to make sure you're comfortable. The work was very physical sometimes, I was not expecting to be hauling big rocks around as much as I was. But the hours were respected and you have a lot of free time to relax and enjoy the beauty of Isca. I would 100% recommended to anyone looking live a simple daily life in nature.

Iris was a lovely and considerate host all throughout my stay. She helped me practice my Dutch and figure out tickets for where I was going next. Plus drive us to the store, beach, or the market. It was also a super unique experience for me as I had never gone to a small Italian village before. The work was physical, but you had a nice space to relax in for the rest of the day. Plenty of beautiful nature, views, great food, and nice people.
