I had such an amazing experience staying with Rety, Bruno and Tim! I stayed there for a week and my time on the farm really flew by. They were all so welcoming and it was great to learn to know them. I really hope to come back and visit one day! I mainly got to work on the plastering of a strawbale house and I was able to learn a lot about natural building and sustainable living. The food was also delicious and the tent I slept in was great! Thank you so much for everything :)

It was a very good experience in Fairyland! Perfect place to chill and learn more about permaculture and how to live in harmony with nature time. Rety, Brunno and Tim are nice, friendly and funny people. The work to me was very nice, I could learn more about plants, bio construction and cook different things. I'll miss Haru and the cats, Boom & Sofia 💚🥎🌿✨

Well, firstly I would like to thank Rety and Bruno for all the accommodation and healthy food we had, I volunteered with my boyfriend, we were very well received. Rety taught us a lot about care, management and other knowledge about permaculture and caring for the environment. The place is very calm, peaceful and welcoming. The most sustainable way of living teaches us about living most harmoniously with Mother Gaia. We also take care of Haru, a very cute dog, and Boom and Sophia, the cats ♡ I loved spending this season with you, I hope I can come back at some point. I RECOMMEND.

This was my first volunteering experience and I really loved it! Rety, Bruno, and Tim are all so lovely and welcoming. Rety taught me a lot about her herbs she grows in her garden and the benefits of them! The tent was so lovely and I slept well every night. The food was very nice and was made with fresh vegetables from the garden, including cucumbers which were especially good. Their son is really sweet and lovely to talk to and they have lovely animals on the land also! I really recommend this if you love peace and nature :)

The experience was very beautiful, Rety and her family are very nice and make sure that you really feel at home. During our stay we helped cob an old cottage: work was intersting and not too difficult. The family were very kind and they were also available to organize trips to the river together. Icing on the cake they organized a falafel night where my travel companion and I were able to perform our musical repertoire! We had so much fun! We spent very nice days off greed and we suggest this experience to averyone who is curious about a more ethical way of life
