I loved my time at the eco village and the people I was able to spend it with. There are always new people coming and going from all over the world to learn from and with. Most nights were filled with music sessions and/or games with other volunteers or guests. The location is absolutely beautiful and the house quickly felt like home. Sometimes I felt unsure how to best help out or what work was to be prioritized. I will look back on my time here fondly!

Beautiful experience Michael is an enlightened person and manages the eco village very well. I was very well received. I made friends with people I will carry with me forever. There was a continuous exchange of beauty and enjoyment. I was able to help in the daily and future projects of the house but also to relax after a long journey. I recommend staying in the eco village at least once in your life. Nature, people and respect at the highest level. and yes music!!!

The eco village was without a doubt an unforgettable experience. The place itself conveys an unparalleled peace, from sunrise to sunset, the connection with nature around you will offer you unique moments. On-site activities are endless, and you'll have a choice in the type of help you can offer. Michael from day one made me feel at ease Treat your space as if it were our home Mi casa es tu casa! Finally, a heartfelt thank you to the group of people I met there, for their companionship and shared moments that will not be forgotten.

The eco village is an space really chill and free where you can learn about everything. The place is amazing to be with nature, ideal to connect with your creativity and the best, for me, was the passion that Michael has for the music, it was so inspiring. He is also open mind and you will learn a lot about him. The experience was great and really useful so I really recommend it, I decided to stay more time bc I was enjoying the good vibes of the place and I met wonderful people there. Thanks for everything!

This was my first Worldpackers experience and I am so glad I did it! It was truly amazing, Michael is a great host and the other volunteers felt like family by the end of the 2 weeks. The house to stay in is comfortable and as we all cooked for each other, the food was so gooddd. The setting in the Portuguese countryside is beautiful and I would recommend this place to anyone! Maybe I'll even go back next year :)
