  • Description


    Hi my name is Arda.

    During my life I traveled a lot all over the world, I love discovering new cultures and new ways of thinking. I' m into sport, meditation, yoga and all kind of spiritual practices.

    We are creating an Ecological concept of hostel & restaurant.We are located by the beach at the south side of Turkey , in Anamur, one hour away from Alanya- Gazipasa airport, where we can enjoy warm weather practically all year.

    We are starting a little farm project, using some natural farming and permaculture.

    Our beach is also one of the most important loggerhead (Caretta caretta) sea turtle nesting habitat in Antalya-Mersin area. You will be monitoring the nesting activity, protecting nests and hatchlings and contributing to public awareness actions in the major breeding sites in Mediterranean.

    We are looking for open minded people that can share with us experience about cooking, carpentry, gardening & farming, spiritual practices, teaching new languages, windsurf and any other aquatic sports.

    Work hours are very flexible so if you want some free time or need something be free to ask.
    If you think to be somebody that can give some good energy and teach something you are more than welcome.

    We have capability for 5 workawayers at a time. Vegan-Vegetarian meals available.

    Thank you for your interest in assisting our work here. We are grateful
    to all our volunteers are pleased that you have chosen to dedicate your time, talents, and
    energy to our Ecolodge.
