The Experience

Apesar da pousada ser pequena, o sítio é bastante grande, com vastas áreas de gramados, jardins, horta e pomar. É aí que entra a ajuda para a qual buscamos voluntários. Do sexo masculino, com iniciativa, boa disposição para trabalhos físicos principalmente, leves e pesados. Eventualmente alguma ajuda na limpeza e na cozinha são requeridos. Sempre com nosso acompanhamento e instrução.

Vila Volta is an unique place surrounded by nature and quietness.
André and Dus are adorable people with an open mind and thought me a lot during my stay.
It was a great experience and I strongly recommend people to enjoy it.

It was an amazing experience! I've been working for a month at the hostel where I learned a lot, made several contacts and also shared lots of ideas and knowledge. I can not imagine there was a better place for my first trip as a worldpacker. In fact I made friends with Andre and Dus and I will come back again to work and visit. The place is wonderful, the energy is unique and magical. Felt at home. The work is heavy, but in due time, and everything is talked about and combined beforehand.

It wouldn't be better. Vila Volta is definetelly a great place with incredible people. André e Gert have created a friendly place, in contact with the nature inpirated in the principles of cooperation, creativity and love. Every little detail delight the visitors. It's a place to relearn how to live in comunity without the urban and modern influences. I had a great experience, sharing and learning with all people who were around. I hope that every one would eventualy visit Vila Volta, at least once in life. It was such a pleasure to became part of the Vila Volta family and I'm looking forward

Amazing experience I had at Vila Volta. Andre and Dus are two amazing guys, they make you feel very confortable just like you are at your home. The place has incredible views and landscapes, prepare to be in touch with nature including a spring of water right in the place, and differents species of birds performing beautiful flights. Dus is an excelent Chef, his food is delicious. The place is a little bit far from the center of paraty, but for those who are looking for a beautiful place to stay, you may find it there.

Vila Volta is a hidden gem in the middle of the nature, surrounded by trees, animals and peace. The volunteers have their own house but I was always integrated with the main building, the owners, others volunteers and guests. It was like a place with friends. Dus and Andre are very friendly and welcoming hosts and give you all the support you may need. I have an amazing experience and for sure I would recommend Vila Volta!
