He estado muy cómoda aquí, convivir tan cerca con los animales en este gran refugio es un gran experiencia de vida que me ayudó a reafirmar mis convicciones. Las tareas son simples pero varían de acuerdo al clima y a la necesidad de los animales. Desireé es muy atenta y agradable. David muy servicial. A pesar de yo no hablar italiano siempre nos pudimos comunicar en inglés. La ubicación del lugar permite visitar lugares como Pisa, Florencia, Siena durante el día libre. Probé y cociné muchísima comida italiana e incluso de otros países como Holanda por otro Worldpacker hospedado aquí mismo.

I stayed here a month and don't regret a minute of it. The two of them are extremely welcoming and friendly as are all of the animals. Whether you're staying a week or a month there's bound to be an animal there you'll come to love. Once you get used to the work and the routine the it all becomes very homelike and easy to settle into. There's a very beautiful town nearby if you fancy a stroll and a drink in the evening. Or if you fancy exploring some of the hills which surround the area you can hike up to a castle on top of the hill which you'll see everyday from the farm. Would recommend!!

Solo tengo palabras de cariño y respeto por el trabajo que hacen Desirée, David y su familia y amigos por los animales. Disfrute dándoles de comer, llamando a las "pecore" y a las "capri" en la montaña, saludando a los burros Antonio y Zéfiro y consintiendo a sus perros y gatos que realmente son tan libres que puedes percibir su personalidad. A veces es difícil entender lo que se requiere hacer cada día porque las necesidades cambian de acuerdo al clima, pero en serio pasé unos días increíbles de aprendizaje en un entorno natural y rodeada de gente con mucho que aportar y contarle al mundo.

Desirée and Davide are the nicest people I have ever met. They work so hard to make the animals healthy and happy! I'm so glad I could be a part of this incredible project. I only stayed two weeks but I am sure I will cherish these memories for all my life.

Excelente experiencia!! Tanto en el aspecto como voluntario, como el contacto con los animales y la naturaleza es increible. Desi y David son maravillosas personas, constantemente bien predispuesta, de buen humor y super relajados cuando se debe.
No encuentro palabras de agradecimiento por la buena energia y lo bien que me han hecho sentir, incluso habiendome quedado mas dias de lo acordado.
Para aquel ser que busca colaborar con una causa justa, y que ademas hacen un bien al mundo tan lastimado, sin dudas busque su momento para ayudar en Agripunk... Yo volveré pronto!
