  • Description


    We run an eco-friendly guest house. Comfortable, cozy 16 rooms are built in country cottage style with local stone and cedar wood. Our guest house is situated in the quiet village of Hoyran (500 meters above sea level) near Demre. A relaxed atmosphere, surrounded with panoramic view of the Taurus Mountains and Mediterranean Sea below. There is a large garden (14000m²) and a large swimming pool (125 m²).
    We give our rooms as bed and breakfast. If a guest would like to have lunch and dinner, we serve them, as well. We also rent one of our houses as self catering.
    Wireless internet in common areas and laundry service is available.
    10 minutes walk to the ancient Lycian City Hoyran, 15 minutes drive to the beach, 20 minutes drive to St. Nicholas Church and Myra

    We need helpers with high energy and motivation. In return you get to learn, how to run a guest house, enjoy the rural life of Turkey and become one of the family members.

    We live in area, where there is no bars or shops, so please beware of this, if you are a city person.

    My wife, myself and our employees work where ever its necessary.
    We welcome our guests and make sure, that they feel themselves at home. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. We clean the guest rooms and the pool and we do the washing, laundry, ironing and gardening. We have a large garden with a lot of flower beds.

    We need volunteers to help us between March and November.
