Description

We are a British couple living at the edge of a forest village in the mountains, 12 km South of Yalova, which is reached by boat from Istanbul. We have started to create an Organic smallholding, and aim to create a sustainable way of living. You are welcome to take part in our work, to experience living in a small village and to join in with what's going on at the time.. It's a beautifully quiet rural area, close to Termal, the geothermal spa, and also remarkably accessible from Istanbul. Yalova is 1 hr from Bursa (historic city & former Ottoman capital). Bursa has good connections to & from the rest of Turkey. We have 3 dogs, 2 cats and 11 chickens(free range eggs); we're a no-smoking household.
