    Description

    Hi,
    we are a Belgian and Turkish couple.we need help to build a stone wall for our new home on our new land in Olympos, Antalya, Turkey. it is a 1833 m2 land in the woods, 40 min. to the beach by foot, or 5km by car. Olympos is 80km west of Antalya and has a beautiful setting between the mountains, the sea, rock climbing, ancient city of Lycians... And lots of outdoor activities.

    we have well water, a small solar panel ,enough for using lights in the bungalow at night and charging a phone, lots of trees and peace....

    you need to stay in your tent for now and we dont have a car to pick you up. So you will be walking 1.5 km uphill to reach our land if you come by minibus.

    It's a new place for us. So there are all kind of work, but mostly in construction, for now. Like making terraces from rocks (that can be heavy job for the body), prepare the soil for planting veggies etc.

    What else ...

    Olympos is a great place for outdoor lovers. Only 80km to Antalya where you can fly into from abroad with affordable prices, 40 minutes to Kumluca and Kemer by car. So close to civilization but so tranquil at the same time. Here there is trekking ( Lycian way starts from Fethiye goes to Antalya with a total of 509km ), only 40 minutes away by foot from Olympos beach, the mediterranean, the Ancient city of Lycians dated from 2nd century BC, more than 300 rock climbing routes, diving, Chimera ( where the olympics flame idea came from ) and many other things you will experience yourself....

    There is a bus from Antalya to Olympos intersection every half hour, summer time. ( it is 15 TL ) from intersection you can either take another minibus for 5TL or you can hitch. you need to get off Nature Village Hotel ( or former name RNT hotel ) then you will walk 1.5 km uphill and voila you arrived :)

    we are pescatarians. So we won't have any meat. we try to live as ecologic as possible. we don't use any chemical cleaning products. we speak english, french, spanish and turkish. We love to share and learn.
