We are Orhan (Turkish) and Susan (German) hosting 12 sweet horses and 8 playful dogs in Western Antalya, Southern Turkey.
July and August are all booked now and we will be able to take in workawayers from 30th of August on.
Please have a look at our calender before asking for a place! Thank you and have an awfully nice summer!
Guys! There is no danger in coming to Turkey, it's all media garbage! It's completely safe here, much safer than New York for example or Miami, Paris, London...forget politics and come over! There are lots of foreigners living in Turkey and not one of them we know wants to leave Turkey.
We have just moved our premises from East to West and construction of hay storage, roads, paddocks etc. have not been finished yet, but it's starting to look great!
We are in need of following type of workawayer:
Paddock cleaning and fencing
Do you know how to handle a traktor? We have to clean up a lot of things and carry them from A to B
Pruning trees, cutting trees
Paving with interlinked stones
Cleaning up the mess of the moved items and organise them
Setting up a PV plant for the ranch
Sometimes help in our private house like window and floor cleaning
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
We are looking for people who like to busy themselves throughout the day and love helping.
Minimum 2 weeks of stay required!
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A VALID HEALTH INSURANCE !!!
Please also let us know if you have any kind of handycap like back problems etc. You have to be able to lift hay bails up to 25kg!
Horse care, stable and paddock work, repair works, cleaning, gardening, forest works.
Please note that only experienced riders are allowed to ride.
Additionally we would like to note that WE DO NOT HAVE WIFI ACCESS here! You can only access the Internet by cellphone connection. You might have to buy a Turkish SIM card (around 25€).
Turkish, German, English, French
The workawayers are staying in a container house on the ranch site which are looking great by the way! 2 beds, small kitchen and bathroom with shower/WC. You can also stay in your tent if you prefer.
Laundry can be organised since we do not have electricity yet... solar lights are available for the night.
Once a week we go shopping to the open market (bazar) for vegetables and fruits and to the grocerie shop for meat etc. about 3 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.
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.
