Area:Hello, we are a friendly family of 4 living in the beautiful city of Izmir, Turkey. We have an 8 year old daughter and a 3 year old boy. My name is Ebru and my husband is Necip, we are both working doctors. We are looking for a girl to come live with us and be a big sister to our daughter and help improve her English, she can already speak very well but we would like to expand her vocabulary and perfect it while she is young. We live in Izmir in the west of Turkey, Izmir is a beautiful city bordering the Aegaen Sea with about 3 million people living here, it is the 3rd most populated city in Turkey. As our nanny you would have a great opportunity to see Izmir in your free time, there are many bars, clubs, site-seeing, resaurants, shopping, bazaars, ect. The weather is beautiful with 300 days of sunshine and no snow. Also we generally do some traveling around Turkey so you may have some opportunites to see other parts of Turkey, there are many historical sights to see. We live a few hours from Pamukkale, the famous natural springs, and Ephesus, the best preserved Ancient Greek/Roman city in the eastern Mediterranean. Istanbul is only a 40 minutes flight away. You will be treated like family and will come with us on all our trips and adventures.
