    Accommodation

    The workawayers are staying in our guesthouse, all beds in one large room, kitchen and bathroom with shower to be shared, washing machine available.

    Once a week we go shopping to the open market (bazaar) for vegetables and fruits and to the grocerie shop for meat etc. which is about 15km 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.

    There is also a small shop about a km away from our place for drinks, cookies, bread etc. easily accessable on foot or by e-trike

  • 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 guesthouse has 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!

    Woodworkers have to wear safety helmets, gloves and goggles!

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

    Sometimes there is a bus connection to get into town with another one to the beach. Why sometimes? There is a huge road construction going on so the buses are sometimes working, sometimes not...so whenever we are going into town you guys can hitch a ride.

    NEW: There is a tramway leaving from Antalya-Aksu all the way to the old town, main bus station (gar) etc.

    Interesting sites to visit nearby:
    Kurşunlu Waterfalls, Düden Falls, the ancient city of Perge, Karacabey cave
    There are buses going to the East if you want to visit Side, Alanya, Aspendos etc.
