Program Details

Stay at least 4 weeks with us!
There are morning (8am-3pm) and afternoon (3pm-10pm) shifts (or we agree on full days work in case you want to have more free time in a raw) Sometimes guests arrive later but doesn’t happen often, also sometimes they want to have breakfast around 8am, so you need to start bit earlier. Cleaning is in the morning, starting from 9am, it takes maybe 2-3 hours to clean all the rooms and the garden area, do the laundry, etc…
Volunteers always have at least 2 days off (often more) so there is a chance to go and see other parts of the island. We do the schedule together for the following weeks, so all of our working hour requests can be planned together.
