    Located in the Aegean part of turkey, Our house is an excellent farm camp near Cesme izmir, on the aegean coast. The farm is pretty close to city center only 8 km away from Cesme town, and 2 km away from the beach.
    Situated in a garden with some olive trees, and a nice view.

    The help needed is not heavy or difficult. We want to learn from our workawayer and share their point of view of which we can learn. We do love Cesme and we are more than happy to share it with you.

    Depending on the interest of the volunteer we can create your daily tasks together.

    Beside the general chores that needs to be done daily or from time to time, there is also a big possibility for creativity and art. At the moment we are busy with gardening, design and brainstorming about how to add more value to the stay of our guests.

    The tasks are various and together we can see what we need at that certain moment and, important, what you would like to do.

    We would highly appreciate it if you could motivate us why you would like to stay with us and which kind of value you would like to add. It can be anything, please let us know in your reaction.

    We kindly ask you to take this volunteering seriously. We try our best to give you a life time experience and in return we would expect a professional respectful behavior.

    In general you will help 5 days. tuesdays and wednesdays are off.

    Knowledge of french italian and spanish is a plus to do some practise.
