    The workawayers are staying in a container house on the ranch site. They can also stay in their tent if they prefer. Laundry can be organised since we do not have electricity yet...
    Once a week we go shopping to the open market (bazar) for vegetables and fruits and to the grocerie shop for meat etc. about 1-5 km away from the ranch.
    We have a weekly shopping budget for the food supply so the cooking has to be organized accordingly by the workawayers.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I have to write this, since it has happened twice already this year: workawayers are well taken care of in our guesthouse and we have an ear for everyone if it comes to problems.
    BUT: This is voluntary work: PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME FOR MONEY!!!

    The living quarters have to be kept clean by the workawayers!

    The staff is not allowed to drink alkohol during the day while working.

    Smoking in the stables and in the forest is strictly prohibited for fire reasons!

    For responsibility and safety reasons you have to be at least 18 years old!

    For riders: No riding without wearing a helmet!

    Please make sure that your health insurance is also valid in Turkey!


    A bus connection is available from the main road, about 2 km distance from the ranch going in all directions of the city.
    The beach is in 6km reach from the ranch.

    Interesting sites to visit nearby:

    Going West: Kemer, Olympos, Phaselis
    Going East: Düden, Perge, Aspendos, Side
