This was my first experience as volunteer in worldpackers and I have to said that everything was perfect! The place, where we were living is so confortable and beautiful! The job, is easy to learn but I liked do it specially with people from other countries, speaking different languages... and of course, Eleonora and Marco are beautiful people! They helped us since the first moment, everything was easy with them! I have a lot of good memories from this experience! Thank you for everything!

Eleonora and Marco are great hosts with plenty of experience working with volunteers.
The home we stayed in was a very nice little bnb they run during the summer; we had wifi, good beds, hot water, food, etc. My biggest piece of advice for anyone wanting to do the olive harvest would be to bring a good pair of waterproof hiking/work boots and expect a fair bit of physical labor. As for clothes I would recommend like 2 or 3 sets of work clothes, a set of clothes to go out in, a set of pajama like clothes to chill in at the house. I really hope I can come back for the olive harvest next year!

Forestaria is a home in the middle of Tuscany and will take a part of your heart so beware! You are about to experience one life-changing worldpack. Eleonora and her family are amazing hosts and will take care that you do not lack anything. They will work alongside you, even if it's hard. Having said this, remember that it is a field and that you are going to be away from the city and the shops. If you want to connect with yourself and nature, this is your best option.
(: Thanks for hosting me :)

Forestarìa is located in a unique setting were I could see the wonderful violet tuscan sunset everyday. My private room was comfortable, cozy and very special (from a former pork house to a 5 star volunteer’s ensuite!). I had a good time working for the aperitivo with Eleonora, Marco, and Nuncia, always in a relax disposition, making fun and enjoying while having an intense time of labour. They are a very nice couple, with a terrific little guy, Lupo, and my experience was great. I really enjoyed your place, your project and your company. I aim to come back for the olives harvest! :)
