Vila Flor is an incredible community for locals and travelers alike. You will have the chance to enjoy all sorts of tasks (e.g. planting, composting, cooking, cleaning), and activities (e.g. kayaking, hiking, meditation, visiting the nearby town). Most importantly, Miriam is incredibly accommodating and promotes a work philosophy centered on individual needs and traits. The result is a fantastic community where all members (i.e. guests and volunteers) feel included and respected. I hope to be back soon!

My experience at Vila Flor was absolutely perfect; Miriam is a wonderful being that makes you feel at home in a heartbeat; everything works in very organic way with an amazing flow of energy.
I am only grateful for the experience and hope I’ll be able to make it for the one year anniversary of the Vila in a couple of days :)))

Essas semanas que passei na Vila Flor me modificaram de maneira muito positiva. Desde o primeiro dia me senti muito acolhida e respeitada. O convívio com a anfitriã Miriam e com as outras voluntárias foi enriquecedor.
