Learning & Fun




It was my worst experience as a volunteer, the owner is usually drunk and in a bad mood, she can't be understood when she talks and she gets upset about it. For her, a volunteer is worse than a pack animal that doesn't deserve rest and only eats once a day. She offers 50 euros as a weekly help to buy food, but I always had to ask for money for food if she didn't give it to me, and she was never punctual. The first 2 days I only ate breakfast, there was no food. I only stayed in the villa 2 of my days of rest, and she asked me why I was not working if I had already rested one day that week.

Dear Natalie, thank you for your feedback and I am very sorry that you had a bad experience. We are working very hard on making changes in the way the villa is managed and to give volunteers a great experience as we do appreciate a lot everyone who is helping us. I am sure that our next volunteers will have much better stay here than you did.



You should definitely go! Like now and always although summer would be the best time. Many events and weddings. I got a perfect private room with bathroom. Gets pretty hot, and you should take mosquito repellent. You can use all the common areas, hundreds of great books you can read at the coziest places to chill. The best coffee. Learned how to make cappuccinos!

Only thing I would suggest is to have your schedules printed, so the owner is aware of them and there are no confusions on working hours and days off.

Special thanks to Alicja, Sandra. For making me feel so good and welcomed.
