This was one of the best months i have ever had! The work is physical but definitely doable as they make sure that there is enough variety. I arrived with almost no knowledge of gardening, animal care etc but they were very patient with me and they explained everything from the beginning till the end. I learned so much during my stay, about way more than only farming as they are very interesting people. They are a very genuine, accepting and funny family. We were laughing all day long and i felt really welcome from the first day. I would recommend this host to everybody who gets the chance!!

Thank you so much for spending this time with us, Mitte! It was such a pleasure having you here, we all truly enjoyed it. I am glad you liked it too and I really hope you will come back for another visit! Take care :)



Achei umas quinta fantástica e um excelente trabalho da parte dos anfitriões. fiz exatamente o esperado, fiz o que gosto, e tentei ao máximo estender-me para fazer mais e aprender mais. Passei a maioria dos tempo com o Yannick (que é um ser humano INCRÍVEL, fantástico). Todos os fins de semana havia bom descanso e alguém amigo para socializar por parte dos anfitriões, e/ou visitar algum lugar. Foram fantásticos. Mas infelizmente não senti um maior respeito da parte da Letecia, senti simpatia esforçada (dito por ela:"bom sentido de humor") mas fui algumas vezes, motivo de gozo (minhas palavras)

Olá Pedro! Obrigada pelo teu comentário. Lamento que te sentavas assim. Aqui nos tentamos sempre de acolher os nossos voluntários da melhor maneira que podemos, mas é claro que dependamente da cultura ou experiência de vida de cada pessoa, alguns mal-entendidos podem ficar, embora este tipo de situação nunca aconteceu antes porque para nós, é mais fácil de falar e esclarecer as coisas para tirar dúvidas ou frustração. Mas se a pessoa não quer comunicar connosco, não é fácil também...
De qualquer maneira, te desejamos uma boa viagem, boa sorte, e força!
