  • Description


    We have a small guest house above a Turkish village catering mainly for Lycian way walkers.

    Our maximum number for guests is eight, and they mostly stay one to two nights. The nearest town is Kalkan fifteen minutes away by bus or car. From Kalkan buses may be got to Fethiye or Kas to Antalya. There is horse riding at Patara beach and riding just outside Kas.

    We have five dogs and rather a lot of cats and a few chickens. Our house looks out over Kaputas gorge. We have an infinity pool and behind us hills and some nice walking. Most days we have shepherds passing with their flocks of sheep and goats otherwise it's a nice quiet place to be.

    We need some help with serving breakfast and the evening meal. Chatting to guests is good too. There might be some clearing up but we work as a team and the house is designed so for fast easy cleaning.

    Some cats and kittens are in the house the rest live outside as with the dogs- A cleaner comes in when required: The work is light the need is for some kind person to help us keep the property neat and tidy

    We treat guests the same way as we would like to be treated. Volunteers would be treated the same.

    We have a comfortable ensuite room for anyone choosing to stay. Meals are eaten with us and guests. Sadly we do not own a television.
    Wifi is good but tends to disappear during thunderstorms.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Plenty of historic sites in the area. Patara beach is beautiful for sunbathing, swimming, walking and horse riding. Kaputas beach is gorgeous with its turquoise waster. Kalkan which is fifteen minutes away offers a nice selection of shops, restaurants, boat trips, a small beach and a lively night life. Buses are every hour from the village or we will transport you if we are going in that direction.
    Kas is more international and buses go from Kalkan hourly. Kas is a working town with two harbors and lots of shop and a good night life.. Paragliding is done from the hills above and landing is near the old harbor. Horse riding is at Çükabağ Just outside Kas.

    We would like someone with a sense of humour who can cope with cats and dogs and chatting to guests. We have a very laid back attitude to this life and would like someone with the same kind of thinking. We are about enjoying this life and Giving people a good experience to take with them on their journey
