This was my first volunteering experience and it couldn't be better. All the tasks were very well explained and Gaia had a lot of patience for us during the learning process. It was the perfect opportunity to ground myself and immerse into nature. The family was very welcoming and always made sure we were ok. A very fun and enriching experience that I feel honoured to have experienced.

Had a wonderful time with Gaia and family. The work was super diverse and interesting, Gaia was very patient and thorough explaining the tasks which was really appreciated. We had fun involving the kids with the work and exploring the local area with the family and by ourselves.

Had the amazing opportunity to spend a month at this beautiful and remote placement where the hosts are incredibly welcoming. My girlfriend and I stayed in the dome at the lodge where our tasks were mostly gardening and woodworking. (currently building a treehouse) It was a ton of fun! I, didn't have any experience in gardening and anything related to carpentry. Gaia was super patient in explaining everything clearly and showing us how to safely use the tools and materials. He's incredibly kind, very understanding and flexible. Would definitely recommend this to everyone 10/10 thanks so much! <3

This was a wonderful and unforgettable experience, I recommend it 100% Gaia and his family welcome us with kindness, their children are full of energy and joy, and we had a great time with them. The place is beautiful, it is located between two small towns that you can visit walking. The work is not difficult and Gaia is flexible with the tasks and the schedule. He always makes sure that you are comfortable with the work and if you don't know how to do something, he teaches you patiently. I discovered incredible places and learned new things. Thank you for everything Gaia and family 😄

My stay at the lodge couldn't be more wonderful. The work wasn't hard, but you have to keep in mind that it can sometimes be physically challenging when it comes to the repair and construction. The schedule is very flexible and you can arrange it for your own needs. The place is stunning, you can go on hikes around the place and visit some of the nearby towns in your free time. I only have gratitude for Gaia and his family for their kindness and making us part of their family for the time we stayed there.
