It was a very good experience, I met many people and many beutiful places near Lago d'Orta, Centro d'Ompio is an amazing place in the mountains. Going from the house to the center takes about 15 min walking up. There are may green paths for hiking and small towns to visit. Different types of tasks but they explain well how to do them. There are other volunteers who can also guide you. Highly recommended.

Gabriela is an excellent helper - dedicated, heartful, attentive to the details. We had a great experience and highly recommend her on working and personal grounds!



The Centro d'Ompio was my first experience as a volunteer and I had a lovely experience.

The place is located in a very beautiful area near the Lago di Orta. Volunteers live all together about 15min, 20min from the Centro in a lovely house that offers all facilities necessary. The work itself is simple, easy and everybody was happy to give a hand and help out when necessary. I would totally recommend this place to anybody.

The atmosphere is super safe and friendly, and the food is really good. Overall, that was an amazing experience ! <3
