  • Description


    Hello, We are a friendly, open-minded and hospitable family. We like to meet new people and be friends with them forever. We are a family of 4. I know English well but others not. But they want to learn. Not just English, we would want to learn any other languages too. Enough if it's even a few words. ( also I know german and dutch in basic ). We had international guests to stay with us for a language course company.

    We live in İzmir. It's a beautiful city to live. Third most populated city and in the west of Turkey, bordering the Aegaen Sea. Istanbul is only 45 minutes flight away. People in İzmir are open-minded and conversable. It has beautiful places for visit. Many nice beaches, touristic and historical attractions ( Ephesus Antique City and Virgin Mary House is near to us) , glamorous nightlife, traditional bazaars (Kemeraltı) , many options for shopping and restaurants/bars . We are addicted to this city. We love visit different places . We are going to beaches and picnics a lot. Going to cinema and theater. And while we are doing these, we like to be crowded. If you are summer person, our city is certainly for you.

    Our house is only 100m away to subway stop. Bus stations same also. And we have a car and bicycle. There is a park and green area for walking or running, so close to house.
