Papasao and mamasao are the most friendly and loving humans. If you want to relax and spend quality time emerged in nature this is the spot for you. Food is fantastic and meeting other worlpackers here was a wonderful experience.

At the farm, I had an absolutely unique experience, which included learning many things that will help me in my further life, such as cooking Thai-dishes and learning how to start a fire. I met a couple people there, who were the kindest souls I've met on my entire trip, the farm amongst those. He and his wife were really keen on giving us a great experience. The food was magnificent and he always cared about certain preferences of the volunteers. All in all I can say that I would 100% recommend this farmstay to anyone!

During my stay it was really relaxing. I would recommend this host to everyone!! Especially if you searching for something relaxing in the middle of the nature!! The food and the nature is amazing and we always had funny nights together!!! Thank you the farm for everything🤍 I hope I will so you again!

From the moment we arrived, he took great care of us showing us around his farm and by offering fresh fruit. The setting is beautiful and Papasao's little cabins to sleep make the experience immersive. We had some great conversations at dinner time with Papasao and Harry. The only thing I might regret about my short stay at the farm is the lack of volunteering. I tought I'd be helping out, visiting the surrounding areas, learning about the culture and the way of farming, etc. We asked many times to help or to discover but we had more times to rest (my friend didn't fell well).
