The Experience

We need help for around 3 hours a day babysitting our twins. They play a lot together so mostly you have to keep an eye on their safety, give them water to drink and change dippers.

This was our first Worldpackers experience and it was beyond amazing! Goncalo, Rita and their children are such lovely and welcoming people, which made it a pleasure to spend time with them. We learned a lot about permaculture and therefore became more in touch with the life in the countryside. The work was easy to fulfill and matched the 3 hours per day. Therefore we had a lot of time to explore the surroundings and calm down in nature. There was even a lake nearby to swim in on hot days. We also met some other volunteers, which made our time there even more fun! We will definitely miss it!!

First at all, thank you once more time Gonzalez for this opportunity and experience. I really enjoyed my days at the farm. They also have 2 lovely dogs. Tasks are easy and get it done easily. If you love nature, you are in the right place. You can go hiking in the area around. But grocery may be a bit challenging. There is a small store half an hour from the farm. But you can do grocery at the same time as Gonzalez or his wife. I strongly recommend it. Oh they have 2 lovely twins. They are so adorable :)

This was my first Worldpackers experience and I'm glad! This family is truly a light and is always willing to help. I will miss babysitting the children dearly. This is truly a beautiful place to stay I definitely recommend coming when it's warm, the land is lovely and so are the people.
