  • Description

    Description

    We have a large house and extended properties in the Yalikavak, Bodrum area. We are high in the hills with magnificent views of the sea and Greek Islands. We have 4 suite apartments, a small cottage on a vineyard and a small village house which we lend to visitors, generally, from overseas. We occasionally, lend these properties short term, in season, from May through October.
    We are a family of three including an 9 year old daughter.


    LOOKING FOR A COUPLE IN MARCH, APRIL AND MAY 2020

    We would prefer a couple that can stay a while. General help is what we need but experience with gardens, especially and also general cleaning and painting. English, French and Spanish languages are a plus.
    We are not smokers, we do eat meat but also love vegetarian culture, We have internet. We have one friendly village dog.
