  • Description


    In the months which are open I welcome help for garden work, eco-gardening and maintenance (painting/sanding etc)
    Preferable couples or 2 friends as its a remote and quiet place to be.

    I live in Turkey with (on the moment) 2 cats and 2 dogs in the beautiful Saklikent park.
    I am Dutch and I am living in the village Kadikoy/Seykikemer.
    Workawayers stay in the villa mostly (off summer season)

    In summer I manage rental villas here on the site and maintenance the pools/gardens and care the guests.

    My property is in a peaceful countryside area with stunning mountain views surrounded by forest and fields. The house is nearby a small holiday complex where its owners enjoy their holidays in summer but also some owners live here permanent. Its village life here.

    - pruning, mowing, gardening, maintanance, sanding. painting etc (what needs to be done)
    - Keep the house and its garden around in perfect condition

    the help is a few hours a day.
    In exchange I supply food for the days you help.

    The nearby small village (2 km walk) has the facilities you could use, including cash machine, pharmacy, post office, medical care and a market plus on the road many restaurants. This location is remote but very central within easy access to Saklikent, Gizlikent and Tlos and Yakapark. Beaches are on 45 min. ride.

    If you have not have own transportation I can give you a ride to village from where you can go to Fethiye or other places.

    What else ...

    The small village is a 2 km walk or I will give you a ride. From the village you can take the dolmus to the towns Seydikemer (13 km away) or Fethiye (30 km).
    This place is nearby Saklikent Gorge and Tlos. In the season (starts in april) there are many places in the area to go to.

    A car is preferable but you can ask me or the neighbors for a drive to village (or places around)
