  • Accommodation


    The workawayers are staying in a container house on the ranch site. 2 beds, small kitchen and bathroom with shower/WC.

    You can also stay in your tent or hammock if you prefer. Please note that there is no A/C in the containers.

    We have a washing machine for your laundry and a large fridge/freezer.

    Since our ranch is feeding on photovoltaic electricity, laundry is only possible at full sunshine days during noon time.

    There's shopping nearby (3km) which can be reached easily by bike.

    We have a weekly shopping budget for the food supply so the cooking has to be organized accordingly by the workawayers.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I have to write this, since it has happened twice: workawayers are well taken care of in our guesthouse and we have an ear for everyone if it comes to problems.
    BUT: This is voluntary work: PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME FOR MONEY!!!

    The living quarters have to be kept clean by the workawayers!

    The staff is not allowed to drink alkohol during the day while working.

    Smoking in the stables and in the forest is strictly prohibited for fire reasons!

    For responsibility and safety reasons you have to be at least 18 years old!

    Please make sure that your health insurance is also valid in Turkey!

    A bus connection is available from the main road, about 2 km distance from the ranch going in all directions of the city.
    The beach is in 3km reach from the ranch.
    Bikes available.
