    We live in Izmir in the west of Turkey. Izmir is a beautiful city bordering the Aegaen Sea with about 3 million people. it is the 3rd most populated city in Turkey. You would have a great opportunity to see Izmir in your free time. We live in the city center. Our house is only a 2 minute walk to the subway stop and 15 minutes to the seaside. At the seaside, you can rent and ride a bike. There are many shoppıng malls, hıstorıcal sıghts, restaurants, museums , bazaars, etc in İzmir. The weather is usually sunny and beautiful with 300 days of sunshine and no snow.

    Urla/Seferihisar are 30 minutes; çeşme/Alaçatı is 1 hour; and Kuşadası 1,5 hour from İzmir. Also Efes and Şirince are so close to İzmir. If you like history and villiages. I guess you will have fun. You can go to Bodrum easily on weekends. if you want to go to Kios (a nice Greek Island) from Çeşme.It takes 15 minutes by ship (and it is also cheap). If you want to go to Samos (Another Greek İsland) you can get a ferry. One weekend you can go to Pamukkale, Kapadokya or İstanbul. We can help you with your bookings.

    We love to eat. You can learn a lot of new Turkish recipes . We usually cook fresh traditıonal foods at home and at the same time we love to try new recipes.
