Region:I am a 64-year-old retired teacher living in south west Turkey with 65-year-old partner. We have a house with pool and garden. We built the house in 2004 extending an old mud brick house to create the two-storey, 3 bedroomed place we now have. We are both British but I also have Turkish nationality. My partner Chris was a gardener and has created a lovely garden here but he can no longer keep up with the maintenance hence our need for help. We are non-smokers (but that is quite recent) and have two cats.
