Few-body weakly bound atomic clusters with large spatial extent are examples of exotic quantum halo states, which appear in different fields ranging from ultracold gases to nuclear physics. This talk will describe Quantum Monte Carlo study of such halos.  Results will be compared to experiments and theory in several fields and universality of halo properties discussed.  Next, using examples of He clusters it will be shown how confinement by adsorption on different substrates changes clusters properties and leads to novel phenomena. In the case of He-4 clusters on graphene increasing the number of particles has furthermore enabled the study of transition from liquid-like to solid-like clusters and prediction of bulk properties.
