During the first few days, we worked a wedding. As promised, Trente and Filip gave us extra time off the following week b/c of our hard-work in the kitchen with Sara, Salvo, and the volunteers (shoutout to my new friends for LIFE- Sergio, Leo, Matias). Meals were AMAZING- felt like I was in a masterclass. Expectation during work hours: take initiative and be one with thethethe the communitylifestyle! You are surrounded by nature, beautiful sunsets and most importantly, good-hearted people. Till next time, love you all

The communityis a committedthethe the communityof people working hard to make conscious, sustainable living possible. Throughout my time here I learned more about an eco-concious lifestyle, culture, cooking, painting, and life on the land. I'm most grateful for having the opportunity to experience realthethe the community, sharing vulnerability, communication, and support. I believe that if you truly invest in this place-the land and people-you will receive overwhelming abundance. The hosts truly opened their home and their hearts to us and I am immensely grateful for all I have learned and experienced here.

Sara is amazing and honest she always make me comfortable to ask and she laugh to much, she works really hard like Salvo & both help us to learn many skills. The activities are painting, cleaning hauses, agriculture, cooking, you never get bored and the time pass fast. you need to know that you will be in the nature and its not easy to go to a many places without car in Sicily. Adventure & flexible people . Filip, when you get the time to know him you will understand his way to show his feelings & his story & humor. I learn about life in all aspects in good and difficult times. 💚 thanks

This was my first experience with worldpackers and I must say it was a good one. I had the opportunity to talk and get to know people from different countries and at the same time improve my knowledge of the Italian culture and its language. I shared great moments with other volunteers from different backgrounds, ages and countries, and they truly made me feel welcome in this country. Filip and Trent fulfilled my expectations about this way to travel, always take care of our needs, the tasks were not complicated, they always respected the schedule, and they were respectful and open to talk.

You’re right, Jasmine, at that time we had some drawbacks, fortunately we were able to fix the hot water system. We are sorry if you had to take a few cold showers during your stay, even if it is very good for the immune system, surely in March it will not have been very pleasant.
We are in a phase of continuous renovation and we are working to improve also the wifi network. We know that now without wifi we are lost, but sometimes disconnecting and connecting with nature is what we would all need.
It is definitely not an experience for everyone. However, we thank you for your help and wish you only the best
